Hydrometeorological Extremes: Drought analysis and prediction I
This session invites papers that focus on scientific and operational, practical issues related to predicting and defining drought and reducing drought impacts. Topics of interest include the formulation and use of drought indices and definitions, and the characterization of drought impacts across the diverse climates of North America and the world. In particular, we welcome presentations spanning a range from drought analysis and prediction to management activities for high-impact drought events, on statewide to continental scales, and including applications such as drought early warning systems. Policy responses for managing drought are also of interest.
