Visualizing Areas at Risk – Evaporate Stress Index

The Evaporative Stress Index (ESI) is a global dataset produced weekly at 5-kilometer resolution for the entire globe, which can help reveal regions of drought where vegetation is stressed due to lack of water. Based on variations in land surface temperature, the ESI indicates how the current rate of ET compares to normal conditions.
