Welcome to the European Drought Observatory!
The EDO pages contain drought-relevant information such as maps
of indicators derived from different data sources (e.g., precipitation measurements
, satellite measurements
, modelled soil moisture content
Different tools, like Graphs
and Compare Layers
, allow for displaying and analysing the information and irregularly published "Drought News" give an overview of the situation in case of imminent droughts.

From the 11th of March 2019, soil moisture and low-flow index data have been upgraded to a new version with a larger spatial extent, based on the latest LISFLOOD model.
Please note that these new data are still under evaluation and are not fully validated.
