Drought Task Force Special Collection on Advancing Drought Monitoring and Prediction now available

This special collection of the Journal of Hydrometeorology focuses on scientific research to advance the U.S.’s capability to monitor and predict drought, including the development of new data and methodologies. The results presented in this issue represent the outcomes of research in large part funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program, also leveraging other U.S. agencies’ investments, and coordinated within the framework of the MAPP Drought Task Force.
