Cydney Seigerman and colleagues publish research on extreme climate events in Brazil

Quixeramobim Reservoir's spillway

PhD Candidate Cydney Seigerman and colleagues published an article on extreme rainfall events after a decade of prolonged drought impacts in the region of Sertão Central, Ceará, Northeast Brazil. The study highlights the necessity of comprehensive management plans that address both drought and excess-water-related challenges and the potential of nature-based solutions to contribute to more sustainable living with semi-arid regions. One outcome of extreme rainfall events in March and April 2023 in Ceará was the complete transformation of the Quixeramobim Reservoir, which can be seen in the dated photos below and the article, At the extremes: Assessing interrelations among the impacts of and responses to extreme hydroclimatic events in Ceará, Northeast Brazil (accessible here)
