Predictions in ungauged basins – where do we stand?
The spatial dimensions of water management heavily rely
on accurate hydrological estimates in the landscape. This has exactly been
the focus of the Predictions in Ungauged Basins (PUB) initiative of the
IAHS. The initiative has significantly advanced the science by furthering
process understanding and estimation methods, and by synthesising the
knowledge across processes, places and scales. Ongoing research on PUB is
increasingly treating water management as an intrinsic part of the
hydrological cycle and is developing processes understanding and methods to
account for the feedbacks between humans and water in the landscape.
