Abstract:

Long-term drought predictions can provide valuable figures which helps to mitigate some of the magnitudes of drought. For prediction of any natural hazard previous observation and tools are required. Similarly for preparedness of natural hazard i.e. drought, rainfall data and SPI tool is required to analyze drought at different time scales accurately. The present study targets to identify drought using Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) for Ajmer district of Rajasthan using rainfall data collected from Rajasthan Water Resource Department. Result from the analysis shows that the year 1987 was the year of severe drought for 1m- and extreme drought for 3m-, 6m- time scales.
