Title: National Drought Mitigation Center (NDMC)
Url: http://drought.unl.edu
Publisher: University of Nebraska (Lincoln campus)
Description: The School of Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln hosts this site on drought mitigation. Designed to help "reduce society's vulnerability to drought," NDMC offers a wide range of information on drought and how to prepare for and deal with it. Newcomers should start at the Drought Science and Impacts sections for background information. The Drought Watch and Climatology sections offer access to a huge variety of online data summaries, tables, and maps -- including several indices of current drought condition in the US -- in addition to links to related research sites. (NDMC is also one of the several agencies responsible for the Drought Monitor. For information on mitigation, see the Mitigation, Drought Links, and Network sections. Given the large proportion of the country currently classified as being on drought watch or experiencing drought, this site will serve as a timely information resource for students, educators, or the general public.
