Summary
Abstract: Outputs from a Water Balance and Transport Model (WBM/WTM) were used
to determine the spatial distribution of renewable water supply,
expressed as the sum of local runoff and river corridor
discharge. Monthly atmospheric forcings from 1960-95 were from (New et
al., 1998). Estimates of domestic and industrial water demands
(Vorosmarty et al., 2000a; 2004) were apportioned by urban/rural
population ... View entire text
