Review, automated estimation and analyses of drought indices in South Asia

Source(s):  International Water Management Institute (IWMI)

Working paper 83, drought series no. 1

While reviewing the existing indices which have been developed for monitoring and quantitative assessment of droughts, this paper analyzes their applicability for drought prediction and management in South Asia. It further describes the suite of routines which have been developed for automated estimation, display and analyses of various drought indices. The suite forms part of the comprehensive computer package, developed earlier and designed to perform the multitude of water resources analyses and hydrometeorological data processing. The seven-step procedure of setting up and running a typical drought-assessment application is described in detail.
