2. IAHS launches Decade of Prediction of Ungauged Basins (PUBs)
There is a need for hydrological data where ground-based observations

of the quantity and quality of hydrological phenomena in order to predict
the stream flow in basins with no records. This information is urgently needed
for use in water resources development and management, flood forecasting,
and for many other purposes. For more information, consult the web page
