Kimberly Slinski can’t stop droughts from happening, but she can see them coming. Her warnings help entire regions of the world prepare for water shortages, crop failures and food insecurities that follow severe droughts. As an assistant research scientist in the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, Slinski uses satellite data to monitor water availability in drought-prone regions around the world.
ESSIC scientist Weston Anderson is a co-author on a new paper out in Nature Climate Change titled “Enhanced risk of concurrent regional droughts with increased ENSO variability and warming”.
ESSIC scientist Weston Anderson is lead-author on a new paper that suggests that African food insecurity is being driven by an uptick in violent conflict. In the study published in Nature Food, Anderson worked with researchers from Columbia University, New York University, and Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory.
ESSIC Post-doctoral Associate Natthachet Tangdamrongsub is a co-author on a new study in Water Policy that aims at the solutions to mitigate flood and drought damage to agriculture. For this international paper, Tangdamrongsub worked alongside researchers from the Rajamangala University of Technology Thanyaburi in Thailand and the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education in the Netherlands.
