Central Chile (30-40°S) has experienced a rainfall decline since the early 80s. Such long-term drying has been accentuated by an intense rainfall deficit from 2010 to date. Moreover, the maximum air temperatures have risen since the late 70s, with warm anomalies between 0.5° and 1°C relative to the past 30 years, resulting in the use of the term megadrougth for the 2010-2015 period. In this work, we used two drought indices to analyze the contribution of precipitation and temperature on recent droughts, and to improve our understanding about the onset, duration and magnitude thereof. First, the traditional Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) is used to descri...
