This webinar shared project findings on drought indices and indicators that support the monitoring and management of different drought types in the northeast United States. The objective of this two-year project was to identify the most effective drought indicators for hydrologic and agricultural drought monitoring in the NIDIS Northeast Drought Early Warning System (DEWS). This includes identifying appropriate time scales related to long-term and short-term drought, and identifying responsive indicators of flash drought development.
