Drought Information Survey Seeks Reporters

The public is invited to submit information to help local, state and national decision-makers assess drought conditions and impacts in Missouri.

A new national survey called the Drought Construction Monitoring Observations and Reports will provide drought information, impacts, and maps for the entire country. Pat Guinan is a climatologist with the University of Missouri Extension and says the survey will let users submit information and will help decision-makers get a complete and accurate portrayal of drought and flooding conditions in Missouri.

Drought reports from the survey are available to the public and archived for future use.

The survey allows contributors to upload image files less than 10 MB in size.

The survey was developed by the National Drought Mitigation Center, based at the University of Nebraska, in partnership with the National Integrated Drought Information System.

The Drought Monitoring Observations and Reports Survey is located at arcg.is/18WXbP.
