The creation of a drought atlas by Kirstin Dow and Greg Carbone has been featured on the USC website highlighting important research at the university.
Along with graduate students and colleagues, Department of Geography faculty Greg Carbone and Kirstin Dow have spent several years studying drought as part of their research with the Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessment (CISA) project. The CISA team conducts applied research in North Carolina and South Carolina that incorporates climate information into water, health, and coastal management and decision making.
Recently CISA has begun developing an atlas that will allow people to understand drought across space and time. This work has been featured on the USC website in a feature highlighting notable research at the university. The story can be found here.
