The biennial U.S. Drought Monitor (USDM) forum will address administrative issues, incorporate the latest scientific advances in drought monitoring, and solicit recommendations from users on how the USDM can improve its drought-monitoring functions.

NOAA’s National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center (CPC) & National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) are partnering with the Kentucky Climate Center in WKU’s Department of Geography and Geology and the Kentucky Division of Water to host the forum.
