Modern hydrology relies on multiple sources of information combined with climatological, hydrological and glaciological data. These data can be collected through various sources such as private initiatives by companies, research programs, and both national and international organisms. They also vary by types, e.g., in situ measurements, satellite, reanalysis and .

The complexity of water resources management in the Indus River Basin has grown in recent decades by the use of groundwater for irrigation (Briscoe and Qamar, ).Fig. shows major groundwater aquifers in the Indus River Basin region, indicating mean annual recharge rates. Increased groundwater use in Pakistan for irrigation has led to water-logging in many Author: Thomas E. Adams.

More quantitative estimates of monthly precipitation totals are expected from the Global Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP). Begun in , this project is using infrared and passive microwave measurements to provide monthly mean estimates of precipitation with °×° resolution over the entire globe for – (WMO ).
