- Although drought is difficult to define and measure, several indices are presently available to assist in rangeland monitoring and management. Several drought indices are noted with documentation where recent information may be easily found. Temporal and spatial considerations may be helpful in management applications. Research is continuing in the development of understandable, and usable, graphical presentations of drought.
