National Drought Mitigation Center

How Do People Study Drought?

Drought is a very complex part of our climate. It’s different from floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes in that it is harder to observe and predict. Drought can also affect people and the environment differently from place to place. Let’s learn how scientists study past and present drought.

Climatologists, paleoclimatologists, hydrologists, economists and other social scientists are all types of researchers that study drought.

You can also find out how the National Drought Mitigation Center is studying drought.
