Evolution of the Arquillo Reservoir (Teruel) November 2017 to June 2018.

Evolution of the drought in Teruel, through the study of the water capacity of the Arquillo reservoir in Teruel through satellite images, of the Copernicus program. 09/07/2018 12:48

Study of the evolution of the water capacity of the Arquillo reservoir, belonging to the Júcar basin in Teruel, from November 2017 to June 2018, in which the evolution of the drought suffered by this region during this period can be seen, until the last rains received.

After one of the greatest drought years registered, the year 2017, where in December the reservoir reached very low levels, occupying only 3 hm³ of the 21 hm³ capacity of the reservoir, which meant less than 20% of water dammed, This situation lasted until February 2018, when due to the snowfalls, rains and storms it reached the maximum amount of water allowed in this reservoir, 19hm³ in just 2 months. Situation that remains today.
