Joint Poster Session 1 Drought Analysis and Prediction Posters

Monday, 11 January 2016: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Hosts: (Joint between the 30th Conference on Hydrology; and the 28th Conference on Climate Variability and Change )
Joshua Roundy, University of Kansas, Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, Lawrence, KS and Eric F. Wood, Princeton University, CEE, Princeton, NJ

Drought is a multi-faceted phenomenon that challenges our current prediction capabilities. Taking drought prediction and hydrological applications to the next level requires advances in understanding, monitoring, communications and water resources management. Specific topics addressed by presenters could include but are not limited to: Current drought prediction science and skill at various lead times; innovative management uses of that science; and case studies illustrating advances in understanding, monitoring and prediction of drought and drought impacts. Further, papers addressing gaps and deficiencies in our current methods for predicting droughts and estimating its effects on vegetation, water resources, and human populations are also invited. Please contact the program Co-Chairs, Joshua Roundy ( for additional information.
