Preparing for Drought
Planning for drought is a complex and difficult business. Too often, good ideas are forgotten once rain falls and business as usual resumes. This publication aims to capture strategies for future use.
In this book we distil the vast array of information about weather and climate into some key principles. We will explain daily and seasonal weather events; discuss the drivers of weather and climate; review the longer term complex scientific models that measure and monitor our variable climate and describe how to manage the risks that weather and climate present to your business.
Climate is what you expect; weather is what you get. Climate is about long term records, trends and averages. Weather is our day to day experience.
Section 1: The weather in your patch
