Civil and environmental engineering professor Eric Wood and his research team have developed a drought monitoring and forecast system for sub-Saharan Africa.
"The River of Muddy Water," looks at the many challenges to water security in Kenya by examining the confluence of Maasai farmers who rely on the Ewaso Ng'iro river for virtually all their water needs.
A series of recent droughts from Australia to the United States has led some scientists to warn that global warming has already begun to increase worldwide drought.
When the worst drought in 60 years hit America’s corn belt this summer, many people wondered if it was caused by climate change.
Drought is often the precursor to disaster, but getting leads on its stealthy approach through remote or war-torn areas can be so difficult that relief agencies sometimes have little time to react before a bad situation becomes a calamity.

Students in the seminar "Global Environmental Change: Science, Technology and Policy" are examining the issue of climate and sustainability through the lens of many disciplines.
Kelly Caylor, PEI associated faculty member, collaborates on a new project: “Coupling Hydrological Forecasts and Food Security in Sub-Saharan Africa and China.”
Wood was cited for his pioneering work in the “use of remote sensing and data assimilation in model simulations for understanding water resources and flood and drought risk.”
