Auxiliary material for this article contains three figures that show (1) characteristics of the global system of rivers, (2) proportion of aquatic removal within basins due to lakes and reservoirs as a function of lake/reservoir surface area, and (3) proportion of total basin removal due to aquatic systems as a function of runoff; and two tables that show (1) the fate of N in five test basins and (2) a table of the statistical results of the relationship between observations and predictions.

gbc1485-sup-0002-fs01.epsPS document12KFigure S1. Characteristics of the global system of rivers, combining small rivers located within each grid cell (orders 1–5) and large rivers of the STN-30 river network (orders S1–S6 equivalent to orders 6–11), including (a) mean drainage area and lengths of each order and (b) total length and number globally, and mean width (+/− 1 standard deviation) of each order.
