Princeton Africa Flood and Drought Monitor

Developed by Princeton University, the AFDM monitors and forecasts meteorological, agricultural and hydrological drought at various temporal and spatial scales. It also has a multi-decadal, historical reconstruction of the terrestrial water cycle against which current conditions can be compared.

This viewer lets a user select a point and easily see point based climate data.

For rainfall, Princeton AFDM uses two datasources:

  • TRMM 3B42, which in 2018 will migrate to the new GPM IMerg
  • The Princeton reanalysis product (not recommended)
