Drought: Advances in Monitoring, Preparedness, and Understanding Drought Characteristics

Description:

Drought is a naturally recurring climatic phenomenon that has a significant impact on both the environment and society. An improved understanding of the causes, impacts and predictability of drought will facilitate the adoption of appropriate adaptation, mitigation, and avoidance strategies. Significant attention has been devoted to drought research in recent years and this special issue on drought in Earth Interactions focuses on new research that: 1) documents the characteristics and impacts of historical droughts, 2) examines the causal mechanisms of drought, 3) describes new methods for monitoring, and 4) investigates potential future changes in drought frequency, severity and duration.
