WEBINAR: Wednesday, January 18, 2017 | 1:00 PM–1:30 PM EST
In this 30-minute session, NOAA's National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) Executive Director Veva Deheza will take the audience on a tour of the Drought Outlook, Current Drought, and Soil Moisture sections of the Water Resources Dashboard.
From the Current Drought tab, Ms. Deheza will introduce the NIDIS page, which houses the U.S. Drought Portal. She will discuss the data, maps, and tools associated with this site and will demonstrate where current Drought Early Warning Information Systems are and how to access information for those regions. Ms. Deheza will also provide an overview of the Soil Moisture tab, pointing out time periods available for information, as well as where to obtain outlooks and learn about anomalies. Finally, she will discuss practical examples of how water/wastewater utilities use this data in their water resources and resiliency planning efforts.
