      NASA's Earth Science program was established to use the advanced technology of NASA to understand and protect our home planet by using our view from space to study the Earth system and improve prediction of Earth system change. To meet this challenge, NASA promotes the full and open sharing of all data with the research and applications communities, private industry, . Balancing consumption with supply is a core challenge for effective water resources management around the world. Balancing the pressures of development alongside long term prosperity for social, economic, environmental and health measures requires integrated thinking and specialised technical skill. Regeneration, not just sustainability, is the new goal for water resources management .

      The NAWQA Program produces water-quality information that is useful to policymakers and water managers at the local, State, and national levels. NAWQA Program studies of three river basins in Colorado--the South Platte, the Upper Colorado, and the Rio Grande--are underway; another, the upper Arkansas, is planned (fig. 1). Planning and Management, History of Water Resources. Few governmental functions have been more important historically than managing water. Early in United States history, despite some questions over the constitutionality of the federal government getting involved in local and regional economic development, most people recognized that a partnership between .

      The Yellow River (YR) is the fifth-longest and the most sediment-laden river in the world. Although the YR accounts for only 3% of China's water resources, it irrigates 13% of its cropland.

Marshall, in Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences, Water Resources. Water resource management includes consideration of all of the above disciplines of hydrology.

Water supplies are allocated and diverted to a range of agricultural, municipal, industrial, hydroelectrical, and ecological needs. This Earth Science module considers how humans are impacting the environment and how resources are being used and managed (or not managed) for the future. In particular, the module explores ground water as a shared resource and factors that affect how a resource is shared among stakeholders.
