Data Release

Historic NOAA Palmer Drought Index data sets and plots in the GCE Data Portal have been updated through February 2021

Historic Palmer Drought Severity Index data sets and plots for Georgia Division 9 have been updated in the GCE Data Portal to cover the period of January 1895 to February 2021. These indices are useful for characterizing the timing and severity of drought events in the long-term climate record. The data were downloaded from NOAA and converted into tabular data sets with decoded state and date columns to simplify filtering, plotting and analysis. More information about these indices and data sets is available here.
