Visual Drought Atlas

The Visual Drought Atlas is a way to compare the appearance of different landscapes over time, in dry, wet and normal years.


This effort, now housed at the National Drought Mitigation Center, includes the archives of photos collected by CoCoRaHS and SCIPP through Field Days. The transition was supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
