The EMS Drought Observatory (DO) provides drought-relevant information and early-warnings for Europe (EDO) and the globe (GDO). Short analytical reports (Drought News) are published in case of imminent droughts. EDO and GDO build on open web services and connect drought data providers and users from global to regional levels.
The EDO pages contain drought-relevant information such as maps of indicators derived from different data sources (e.g., precipitation measurements, satellite measurements, modelled soil moisture content).
Different tools, like Graphs and Compare Layers, allow for displaying and analysing the information and irregularly published "Drought News" give an overview of the situation in case of imminent droughts.
