Poster Session 1 Drought Analysis and Prediction

Monday, 8 January 2018: 4:15 PM-6:00 PM
Exhibit Hall 3 (ACC) (Austin, Texas)
Host: 32nd Conference on Hydrology
Michael Hobbins, CIRES, Boulder, CO; Mark D. Svoboda, National Drought Mitigation Center, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE; Jason A. Otkin, Univ. of Wisconsin–Madison, CIMSS/SSEC, Madison, WI and Joshua K. Roundy, Univ. of Kansas, Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering, Lawrence, KS

Drought is a multifaceted phenomenon that challenges our current monitoring and 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 monitoring and predicting drought and estimating its effects on vegetation, water resources, and human populations are also invited.
