NOAA Launches National Drought Portal

Last week the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) launched an online clearing house for information about drought conditions in the US. The site (officially named the National Integrated Drought Information System or NIDIS) provides a wealth of information about current drought conditions around the country, analyzes their impacts, and forecasts about future drought conditions. Their maps are particularly interesting, especially the drought forecast through January 2008. The site also has sections on planning, education, and drought research.
