Water science finds itself at an interesting and critical crossroads. Sophisticated atmospheric modeling, remote sensing, and Internet-based exchange of data enable exciting new synergies to develop among scientists, policy-makers, and the private sector. Paradoxically we find it evermore difficult to validate products from these high-technology tools and to exploit their full potential due to a severe and sustained decline in available hydrologic data sets.
