EDO Combined Drought Indicator (CDI) (version 1.4.0)

Collection: DROUGHT : Drought Observatories datasets 

Description

Combined Drought Indicator (CDI) based on SPI, soil moisture and fAPAR, to identify areas with potential to suffer agricultural drought, areas where the vegetation is already affected by drought conditions, and areas in the recovery process to normal conditions after a drought episode. The method is based on 5 impact levels. These levels are:

"Watch" when a relevant precipitation shortage is observed, "Warning" when this precipitation shortage comes with a soil moisture anomaly, "Alert" when these two conditions are accompanied with an anomaly in the vegetation condition, "Partial recovery" when after a drought episode, the meteorological conditions are recovered to normal but not the vegetation conditions, "Full recovery" when meteorological and vegetation normal conditions are recovered. Currently, historical data are being reprocessed.
