Abstract

In this paper, we introduce an ecologically relevant measure of drought stress and its relationship with vegetation characteristics. We used process-based simulations of reference drought stress on inclined surfaces with different soil type, slope, and aspect to get an insight in the drought statistics that explain small-scale differences in vegetation characteristics. Mean intensity, duration, and frequency of drought events are commonly integrated into the so-called "dynamic drought stress" TS
