A question about how to predict the runoff from a basin where there is no history of flow measurements is probably featured in almost every hydrology graduate student's oral examinations. It has certainly been one of the longest-standing problems for the profession. The International Association of Hydrological Sciences Prediction in Ungauged Basins initiative [Wagener et al., 2004] has focused researchers and meetings on the topic, culminating in this book, which assembles the thoughts gathered over the last decade.
