Global Annual River Discharge (km3/yr)

Jul 2, 2010
Global annual river discharge for a 0.5 degree resolution digital river network (blended, km3/yr per grid cell). Blended river flow represents a composite of observed and modeled river flow. Annual river discharge - computed as flow accumulated long term average runoff along a 30-minute resolution digital river network and blended with observed discharge data where available (km3/yr).
