University of Nebraska-Lincoln: Drought Center creates tool that could help detect emerging impacts by tracking news

University of Nebraska-Lincoln: Drought Center creates tool that could help detect emerging impacts by tracking news. “When drought develops somewhere across the country, news reports often chronicle its effects on that area. These reports can be vital resources in trying to understand the impact of drought in the U.S., said National Drought Mitigation Center assistant director Kelly Health. The Drought Center has developed a mostly automated news search process for drought impacts, and is mapping and qualifying the results. The experiential Media Drought Index (MDI), now available to the public, may help detect emerging impacts, said Smith, who led its development.”
