Mapping a Drought: Jan 2013- Jan 2018

So, in January I stated that I would create 12 maps for 12 months as part of my new years resolution. Well, It is feburary and obviously I didnt follow through on that first map.

Between grad school starting and gearing up for my last semester, it has taken me a little longer than I would have liked to get back into the “Academic groove”

So here are the first three maps for Drought, my topic for January.

Looking at Drought Data from Drought Monitor
Drought Indacators for The Lower 48
Drought Indicators five years later, 2018

These maps are just a rough draft. In the next couple of weeks, I’ll work to improve these maps. Please let me know what you think down in the comments below!
