Novel EO data for improved agricultural drought impact forecasting in the Pannonian basin (DryPan)

  2019-05-01 - 2021-04-30

In DryPan we propose to integrate several European EO datasets to characterize drought and to forecast drought impacts on agriculture in the Pannonian basin. Here we understand drought as a compound event (Zscheischler et al., 2018) that is usually driven by a lack of precipitation and a high atmospheric water demand (i.e. meteorological drought), often accompanied by a heatwave (Reichstein et al., 2013) and that impacts land surface states such as soil moisture and vegetation and might affect agricultural yields (i.e. agricultural drought).
