Drought Coast to Coast Monitored with VegDRI System



Find green business solutions

Drought is a devastating natural hazard, affecting more people than any other natural hazard and costing the United States an average of $6 to 8 billion annually.

By being able to monitor droughts, society and its decision makers can take action early to mitigate the detrimental affects and thereby minimize costs.

VegDRI

The Vegetation Drought Response Index, also known as VegDRI, is a valuable addition to the field of drought monitoring.

VegDRI combines information to show drought's effect on vegetation.  Information is gathered from:

  • historical and current satellite observations,
  • climate indicators,
  • ecological settings, and
  • soil characteristics 

Agricultural Applications

This system is particularly important to the agricultural community and can provide detailed information over broad regions of land as it reassesses the entire conterminous 48 states every other week. Ultimately, VegDRI promises to make drought response and mitigation more effective. For more information, visit the Vegetation Drought Response Index Web site.
