Rivers are an important linkage in the global hydrological cycle, returning about 35%of continental precipitation to the oceans. Rivers are also the most important source of water for human use. Much of the world's population lives along large rivers, relying on them for trade, transportation, industry, agriculture, and domestic water supplies. The resulting pressure has led to the extreme regulation of some river systems, and often a degradation of water quantity and quality For sustainable management of water supply agriculture, flood-drought cycles, and ecosystem and human health, there is a basic need for improving the scientific understanding of water cycling processes in river basins, and the ability to detect and predict impacts of climate change and water resources development.
