Recent advances in measuring hydrological variability by means of the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission, and other remote sensing platforms (TRMM, Landsat and MODIS), offer great potential for estimating spatio-temporal surface water balances, spatially-averaged water budgets, hydrodynamics, hydrological processes, and characterization of groundwater systems in gauged and ungauged basins, at regional and global scales. In parallel, advances in ground-based measurement techniques, such as distributed temperature sensing and geological-weighing lysimeters, are being incorporated into research and practice for determining hydrological parameters. Collectively, the 30 peer-reviewed papers provide an overview of these techniques and their use with hydrological models for understanding multi-scale hydrological processes.
