    Within the Missouri River Basin the precipitation and temperature vary greatly with both time and geographical location. Differences in weather and climate combine with differences in topography and geology to produce large differences in runoff from time to time and from place to place in the basin. The average annual runoff ranges from a fraction of an inch for some drainage areas to more. Federal agencies with Missouri River management and science responsibilities currently meet once or twice a year on Missouri River issues under the auspices of a Missouri River Roundtable (Box lists federal agencies with water science and management roles in the basin). Roundtable meetings focus on identifying prospective collaborative.
