Researchers used satellite data to examine global freshwater resources and humans' influence on them.
The research uncovered the extent of human influence on the global hydrological cycle.
World Water Day works to raise awareness of the importance of freshwater.
Researchers have used NASA satellite data to examine 227,386 bodies of water to understand more about the extent of human influence on the global hydrological cycle.

Such research is "essential for the sustainability of freshwater resources on Earth", the scientists involved say in introducing their research.

Their most striking finding? Humans are responsible for more than half (57%) of the fluctuations in seasonal surface water storage.
