Short summary
There are many global maps of hydrology and water resources, but none on necessary storage to smooth out discharge variability. This paper provides a methodology to create such a map, taking the Ganges–Brahmaputra–Meghna basin as an example. Necessary storage is calculated by a new method, intensity–duration–frequency curves of flood and drought (FDC–DDC). Necessary storage serves as a signature of hydrological variability and its geographical distribution provides new insights for hydrology.
