Summary

Regional Climate Centers (RCC) Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI: drought index). Recent 10-year climatology for drought in all months, 2005-2014.Drought is one of the most consequential aspects of variation in precipitation and temperature patterns in terms of its impacts on natural ecosystems and human systems. The production of food and clean water can be strongly affected, as can forest products production, outdoor recreation, ecosystem processes such as wildland fire, and many other processes affecting ecosystem services. Having a grasp on recent ranges of variability in drought conditions can provide a context for understanding ongoing and future climate change and its impacts on ecosystem services. Although predicting future [...]

Purpose

The self-calibrated Palmer Drought Severity Index (scPDSI) is a locally calibrated index that estimates the severity of drought conditions relative to normal conditions measured for the region. This is one of the most frequently used standard measures of drought in the United States. Negative values indicate unusually dry conditions, with moderate drought indicated in the -2 to -3 range.
