Drought, NDVI, RAI, hazard, vulnerability and risk


The recent recurring water scarcity in the Hisar region has alarmed the scientific community and the policy makers alike. The absence of appropriate scientific work to analyse the recurring pattern of the drought, and the relation between meteorological, hydrological, and agricultural drought has further perplexed the decision makers. This study attempts to use the range of indices on drought monitoring and different software such as Q-GIS and Erdas Imagine.This information has been tabulated and converted into pictorial representation to illustrate the intensity and frequency of the droughts. It presents an intelligent information base to assist the decision makers and mitigation analysts in taking decisions for drought mitigation action.
