Abstract The aim of this study is to determine drought analysis of Kayseri province by using RDI (Reconnaissance) index. Monthly total rainfall amounts measured for 1975-2009 years in Kayseri Meteorological station and the ET0 (reference evapotranspiration) computed by FAO56 Penman- Monteith relationship for the same years were used as materials. The cumulative “monthly rainfall-monthly ET0 ratio” series for four difference reference periods (k1, January-March; k2, January-June; k3, January-September; k4, January-December) belonging to each year were constituted and the RDI values were calculated by using the series of k-reference periods. According to RDI index in Kayseri province; mild drought has been experienced much more in general, but sometimes moderate, severely and extremely drought categories has been experienced
