"I before E" Except in Drought

Mark Svoboda, NDMC, Lincoln, NE


Drought is one of the least understood, yet most costly of all disasters. This talk will focus on how all droughts are local and how their impacts affect us and the environment around us. Impacts are the face of drought and they expose our vulnerability to this unique hazard. Special attention will be paid to drought early warning and information systems and the integral role networks such as CoCoRaHS play in feeding useful information to those in decision support and policy making. Tools of the trade will be explored to look into the state-of-the-science in tackling drought in the U.S. in a proactive manner.
