Short summary
A model that simulates groundwater and surface water flow has been developed for the major river basins of the continental United States.  Fundamental data sets provide input to the model resulting in a natural organization of stream networks and groundwater flow that is compared to observations of surface water and groundwater. Model results show relationships between flow and area that are moderated by aridity and represent an important step toward integrated hydrological prediction.
