algorithm. The mean oceanic freshwater flux in HOAPS for the 1992–2005 period is 0.73 mm day −1 , which is equivalent to a liquid water volume of about 90 000 km 3 yr −1 . For a closure of the global freshwater balance, this transport of freshwater from the ocean into the atmosphere should be compensated for the most part by continental runoff. Long-term mean runoff data published and summarized by the Global Runoff Data Center (GRDC) add up to a mean value of approximately 0.32 mm day −1 (equivalent
