Short summary
Perhaps the oldest question in hydrology is Where does water go when it rains?. Here we present a new way to measure how the terrestrial water cycle partitions precipitation into its two ultimate fates: green water that is evaporated or transpired back to the atmosphere and blue water that is discharged to stream channels. Our analysis may help in gauging the vulnerability of both water resources and terrestrial ecosystems to changes in rainfall patterns.
