Kirsten Lackstrom, Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA), will provide an overview of drought impacts research, discussing “The Missing Piece,” the results of a workshop on drought impacts held in Tucson in March. Alison Meadow, Southwest Climate Science Center at the University of Arizona’s Institute for the Environment, will present an overview of her assessment of Arizona DroughtWatch, a drought impacts collection program, which is being published in an article in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society called “Field of Dreams or Dream Team?”
Recommended by the EDEN CoP and Drought Resources team, this webinar is presented by the Engaging Preparedness Communities working group of the National Integrated Drought Information System. This is the first in a webinar series that will explore current research and applications on drought impacts. Understanding impacts helps planners, decision makers and resource managers reduce vulnerability to future droughts.
