A workshop on Drought Recovery Tools, Perspectives, and Situational Awareness
Open to the public
RSVP at http://bit.ly/2oHjlH8 to attend
The workshop will discuss the impact of extreme rain falling during a long-term drought and evaluate whether existing tools/products sufficiently capture the amount of drought amelioration.
The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), through the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), is conducting this workshop to identify the current usage of the NCEI drought amelioration web tool, and to facilitate an open discussion on improvements to the web page. The goal is to combine local knowledge with specialist technical input to generate accurate, timely, and regionally-relevant content that helps local users make better decisions as they set priorities and allocate resources.
