  • Drought is a natural hazard with severe socio-economic consequences. For agro-based country like India, this may further deteriorate the circumstances, thereby urging for precise quantification. This paper is about the application of meteorological drought indices namely Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI), Effective Drought Index (EDI) and Percent Normal Precipitation Index (PNPI) over Marathwada division, Maharashtra, India. The 3-hourly (0.25° × 0.25°) gridded rainfall data is collected… CONTINUE READING
