Engagement and Impact through Themed Joint Sessions

We are expecting, with your participation and involvement, these themed joint sessions will serve as a catalyst for focusing the attention of the research and operational communities (and also those who are involved in accelerating the transition of research results into operations) on the exciting possibilities related to advancing predictive capabilities across many fields and applications.

Drought Prediction and Applications from a Hydrological Science Perspective

This session invites papers that focus on scientific and operational, practical issues related to predicting and defining drought and reducing drought impacts. While most evident in semi-arid to sub-humid environments, drought can occur anywhere and anytime, even in deserts and arctic climates. The impacts and causes of drought, the indices and indicators used to monitor and analyze drought, and even the very definition of drought varies across these diverse climates. This variation is a significant challenge for drought research, analysis, modeling, monitoring, and prediction, and complicates the responses of state, regional, national, and international programs, especially in a changing climate. Topics of interest include the formulation and use of drought indices and definitions, and the characterization of drought impacts across the diverse climates of North America and the world. In particular, we welcome presentations spanning a range from drought analysis and prediction to management activities for high-impact drought events, on statewide to continental scales, and including applications such as drought early warning systems
