Influence of basin characteristics on the effectiveness and downstream reach of interbasin water transfers: displacing a problem

Interbasin water transfers are globally important water management strategies, yet little is known about their role in the hydrologic cycle at regional and continental scales. Specifically, there is a dearth of centralized information on transfer locations and characteristics, and few analyses place transfers into a relevant hydrological context. We assessed hydrological characteristics of interbasin transfers (IBTs)in the conterminous US using a nationwide inventory of transfers together with historical climate data and hydrological modeling.
