NIDIS Carolinas Drought Early Warning System: Supporting Coastal Ecosystem Management
The NIDIS Carolinas Drought Early Warning System Scoping Workshop was held on July 31 – August 1, 2012, in Wilmington, North Carolina. Participants represented a diverse group of organizations and interests. The objectives of this workshop were to identify important issues of concern for the coastal region and to establish and refine priorities for a pilot project. The agenda included background presentations about NIDIS and drought-related concerns for coastal ecosystems in the Carolinas, World Café-style sessions to facilitate small group discussions of regional needs and pilot project ideas, and full-group sessions to elaborate on ideas and select specific projects to pursue.
