Introducing ecological drought as a scientific concept distinct from other definitions of drought, this webinar explores recent research on the topic, including transformational drought impacts and ecological tipping points.
This webinar is the first in a four-part series that seeks to raise awareness of ecological drought, share actions that strengthen ecosystems resilience and mitigate the impacts of droughts, and discuss research and management needs for future drought planning and preparedness. The
series is co-hosted by NOAA's National Integrated Drought Information System and the USGS National Climate Adaptation and Science Center, with expert speakers from the research community, tribalnations, and government agencies.
