SARP Webinar Series: El Nino – The Science and the Potential Impacts

This series is co-sponsored by the NOAA Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP), US National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), Water Research Foundation, Water Environment Federation (WEF), Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA) and EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utility Initiative.  The next talk is entitled “El Nino – The Science and the Potential Impacts” and will take place on Friday, Feb. 5th from 2-3 PM EST.

Two new MAPP-funded studies provide new insight into drought understanding and prediction in the Central U.S.

New research funded by CPO’s MAPP Program focuses on drought in the central U.S./Great Plains region and evaluates why summer droughts occur in the Southern Great Plains during some La Niña years but not in others, and how several drought indicators may promote drought preparedness during future flash drought (droughts that intensify rapidly) events.
