We study the daily river ow uctuations of 30 international rivers. Using the detrended uctu-
ation analysis, we study the correlations in the magnitudes of river ow increments (volatilities),
and ˙nd power-law correlations in volatilities for time scales less than 1 year; these correlations
almost disappear for time scales larger than 1 year. Using surrogate data test for nonlinearity, we
