Founded in 1995 and led today by director Michael Hayes, the mission of the NDMC is to help people at all levels prepare and manage for &ought in a proactive way. "The National Drought Mitigation Center actually works with everybody from an individual producer up to na- tional and international governments. We work with the United Nations quite a bit, the World Meteorological Orga- nization, which is a UN Organization," Hayes said. "What we try to do is deliver &ought-related information to these stakeholders." Mark Svoboda, Climate-Based Monitoring Program area leader for the NDMC, develops a number of in- formation systems on drought to help people realize just how important and widespread an issue &ought can be. "One of our main jobs is to commu- nicate science in a way that's digest- ible for policy-makers and for the pub- lic," Svoboda said. "A lot of what we do is framed around that and in fact we do pride ourselves in working a lot with working folks on the ground and at all scales. We have a pretty large global footprint when it comes to deal- ing with drought issues, because this is an issue that is very much global, and not just isolated here in Nebraska of course." One of the main information sys- tems Svoboda works on is the U.S. and North American Drought Monitor which is put together in collaboration with 11 other authors to assess current &ought conditions. Some of the other information sys- tems provided by the NDMC include the Drought Impact Reporter; the Drought Risk Atlas and the Standard- ized Precipitation Index. All of these systems provide a variety of drought- related data such as vegetation stress, precipitation, soil moisture and tem- perature to help people better under- stand drought in their local area. llAk'i]00Oll?

Deanna Disney, Activity Assistant "All these tools are there for them to use to make a better informed deci- sion and hopefully reduce their impact 'from drought because we can't stop &ought from happening, but what we hope to do is reduce the risk or impacts of drought on your operation," Svoboda said. Reducing this risk is critical to help people avoid detrimental impacts from drought, like what the U.S. saw during the Dust Bowl years. "Many people don't think we can have or experience a situation like we had in the 1930s, the Dust Bowl years in the United States. But if you look at past records and available data, the 1930s &ought is actually not that un- usual of an event," Hayes said. "So trying to get people to understand that concept and hopefully that allows them to think about being better prepared for an event like that." "It's one of the most, if not the most costly hazards in the U.S., it's right up there with hurricanes, those two pretty much stand tall over all other hazards combined," Svoboda said. "And if you think about it makes sense because &ought has a very large spatial foot- print and can last for a very long time." By educating and informing people about drought, the work of the NDMC is critical for the future especially for a state like Nebraska, where agriculture is so important and can be quickly impacted by &ought.Contact Angela Hensel at nns.ahensel @ Markets Superior Grain Market Tuesday Close Current Price Last Week Corn ................................. 3.83 3.90 Milo ................................. 4.57 4.64 Wheat ............................... 6.06 6.35 Soybeans .......................... 9.74 9.75 School Menus Superior Public Schools Breakfast Jan.5 to Jan. 9 Monday: NO SCHOOL.
