Do we have technology that can predict droughts?

    Yes, we have technology available to help predict droughts.  Geographic information systems, including remote sensing information, can help track patterns.  This process is very complex, and cannot always correctly predict a drought.  However, progress is coming along.  For example, with new reconstructions and data sets from America’s Dust Bowl drought, climatologists have been able, for the first time, to be able to show in 3D the makings of a drought in the atmosphere.  So, they are more aware of what happens in the atmosphere (and can watch for it) when a drought is coming on.
