Drought Early Warning and Forecasting: Theory and Practice provides a comprehensive overview of drought-related scientific research, describes the available tools and techniques, and informs readers on how to use these tools and techniques to effectively identify, predict and communicate potential drought-related disasters. Throughout the book, the authors incorporate 'climate change' as a pragmatic component of effective drought early warning, dealing explicitly with climate non-stationarity, increased climate variability, and the impacts of air temperature extremes. This comprehensive resource simultaneously addresses the physical, social and information management aspects of drought early warning. Assesses past and future drought impacts, drought monitoring, prediction and early warning systems, vulnerability and mitigation Presents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of observations, models and vulnerability assessments, allowing readers to learn about the primary climatic dynamics that lead to drought Examines long-term changes in drought and identifies the latest tools and approaches being used to monitor and forecast drought to mitigate socioeconomic losses

Creating a Drought Early Warning System for the 21st Century

In 1996, the Western Governors set an aggressive goal to change the way our nat. prepares for & responds to droughts. Subsequent efforts led to the creation of the Nat. Drought Policy Comm. (NDPC), which issued its recommendations in May 2000 to establish such a nat. policy. Improved monitoring & forecasting is fundamental to

Drought Early Warning System

This book encompasses the characterisation of meteorological drought by the newly invented index called “SPI – Standardised Precipitation index” approved by World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in June 2011. It is a simple index with precipitation as the only parameter and can be computed for different scales (1-3-6-12-24 months) and
