A drought is a period of time when an area or region experiences below-normal lack of adequate precipitation, either rain or snow, can cause reduced soil moisture or groundwater, diminished stream flow, crop damage, and a general water ts are the second-most costly weather events after hurricanes.

2 DROUGHT OF though water for irrigation or other uses in arid areas is always limited, special shortages in such areas are also regarded as droughts. Un­ satisfactory distribution of precipitation throughout the year may be as effective in causing a drought as a shortage in the total by: 5.

Drought assessment involves analysis of spatial and temporal water related data. Several methods were developed to assess the drought quantitatively. Basically, droughts are assessed with reference to nature of water deficit, averaging period, truncation level and regionalization approach (Dracup et al ).File Size: 98KB.
