I believe the drought metadata search form no longer operates and I will continue to look into this.
To better understand the physical characteristics of and processes influencing Canadian Prairie droughts, and to contribute to their better prediction, through a focus on the recent severe drought of 1999 - 2004/05.
The specific goals of this project were to:
1 Quantify the physical features of this recent drought
2 Improve the understanding of the processes and feedbacks governing the formation, evolution, cessation and structure of the drought.
3 Assess and reduce uncertainties in the prediction of drought and its structure.
4 Compare the similarities and differences of the recent drought to previous droughts over this region and those in other regions, in the context of climate variability and change.
5 Apply our progress to address critical issues of importance to society.
