Ecological drought in the South Central United States newsletter
The Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers (CSCs) and their managing organization, the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center at the U.S. Geological Survey, have chosen the emerging climate science field of Ecological Drought as a research focus area. This newsletter highlights the outcomes of a two-day workshop held in Norman, Oklahoma, as part of a series of meetings at each of the nation's eight CSCs. The South Central CSC is a regional partnership of researchers, land managers, tribes, and others working collaboratively to develop tools and strategies that address the impacts of climate, including drought. Drought is not new to the South Central United States. Historically the region has experienced multi-year droughts. However, climate change is bringing new challenges that will require further innovations in land management.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
