Enhancing Drought Early Warning Capabilities for Agricultural and Tribal Stakeholders in the Missouri River Basin Using Fast Response Drought Indicators
This project aims to enhance drought early warning capabilities for farmers and ranchers in the Missouri River Basin using fast response drought indicators and gaining a better understanding of their monitoring and forecasting needs.
Though the project will focus on farmers and ranchers in the Missouri River Basin, the analysis and visualization techniques developed during the project will be applicable to the entire U.S. Improved understanding of the social and physical impacts of drought will support drought mitigation efforts by scientists from university, federal, and non-profit organizations.
