Characteristics, Predictability, and Risk of Mississippi and Ohio River Valley Drought

Project Timeline
January 2019 - December 2021

This project aims to build a predictive understanding of drought and to quantify the risk of droughts with certain characteristics in the lower and upper Mississippi and Ohio River basins. This project will do this by investigating the physical characteristics, potential predictability of those characteristics, risk of those characteristics and whether climate change alters those risks during three drought phases: onset, persistence and demise.
