"Innovation Across the Water Cycle: New Tools and Technologies to Manage Drought Risk"
 
Across the water cycle, changing conditions in precipitation, snowpack, soil moisture, temperature, and evapotranspiration must be well monitored and better forecasted to provide early warning of drought. NIDIS and partners will illuminate key stages of the water cycle where new technologies, tools, and resources are burgeoning to better understand and reduce drought risk to water supply systems. Featured presentations will include:  
  • The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS): Reauthorization and 2019 Updates - Elizabeth Ossowski, CIRES/NIDIS 
  • Climate Engine: On-Demand Cloud Computing and Visualization of Climate and Remote Sensing Data - Dan McEvoy, Desert Research Institute
  • Drought Monitoring and NOAA's National Water Model - Mimi Hughes, NOAA/Earth System Research Laboratory/Physical Sciences Division
  • Water Utility Climate Alliance: Building Resilience to a Changing Climate - Ivana Kajtezovic, Tampa Bay Water, on behalf of Water Utility Climate Alliance
