US Drought Portal

Date of publication unknown

The US Drought Portal allows practitioners to access and interact with drought and climate related data, including maps and graphing capabilities, to help understand drought and how it changes over time. It's meant to provide early warning about emerging and anticipated droughts, assimilate and quality control data about droughts and models, provide information about risk and impact of droughts to different agencies and stakeholders, provide information about past droughts for comparison and to understand current conditions, explain how to plan for and manage the impacts of droughts, and provide a forum for different stakeholders to discuss drought-related issues.
