Drought Early Warning System (DEWS) Interactive Exercise
DRI invites you to participate in its online DEWS exercise. The information gathered from the questions you answer will be helpful to us in bridging the gap between drought research and drought information applications. This exercise will take you approximately 20-30 minutes
The purpose of the Drought Early Warning System is to initiate a
dialogue between the Drought Research Initiative and the users of
drought information. DRI is interested in
understanding how advances in the research pertaining
to characterization and prediction of the drought could be
utilized by users.The interactive DEWS is one step in assessing how
users could potentially use research data and data products and enables
them to provide feedback on their views about the priorities and gaps
that need to addressed in future drought research.
The data product examples have been prepared for the historical drought of 1999-2005 (specifically 2002), which is the focus of DRI and does not include current conditions
