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