USGS and IAN collaborate to report on ecological drought

Washington, D.C., USA. In 2015, the Integration and Application Network kicked off a national-scale effort with the USGS Climate Adaptation Science Center to synthesize the impacts of of ecological drought across the country. Regional workshops were held at each of the eight regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers, as well as a two-workshop series to highlight the unique vulnerability of islands to drought. In addition, IAN staff collaborated with researchers from NC State to collect and archive oral histories of drought. Products from the two island workshops, as well as synthesis efforts at the eight regional climate adaptation science centers, were highlighted at the 2018 AGU Fall meeting in Washington, D.C. in December, and are now available online.
