Do you use the weekly US Drought Monitor in your work, or monitor it for changes in the drought status? Do you use it to help your producers get financial assistance when a severe drought hits? If so, you may be interested in this upcoming workshop on the US Drought Monitor, how it is put together and how impacts in the Southeast can affect it. While they are still working on the final list of speakers and topics, it will be held February 4-5, 2020, starting at 9 am on the 4th and running until noon on the 5th, in Columbia SC. A few details are below. I will post links to registration and meeting information as soon as they are available.
