Remotely sensed high resolution irrigated area mapping in India for 2000 to 2015

Annual high-resolution irrigated area maps from 2000 to 2015 that can be used for water resources planning and management in India. Irrigated area maps developed for all the agro-ecological zones in India using 250 m normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and 56 m land use/land cover data, high-resolution.

High-resolution near real-time drought monitoring in South Asia

Drought in South Asia affect food and water security and pose challenges for millions of people. For policy-making, planning, and management of water resources, high-resolution datasets of precipitation and air temperature are required in near-real time. We developed a high-resolution(0.05 deg) bias-corrected precipitation and temperature data that can be used to monitor near real-time drought conditions over South Asia. Moreover, the dataset can be used to monitor climatic extremes (heat and cold waves, dry and wet anomalies) in South Asia.
