Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:reservoirs, ponds, lakes and/or other impoundment effects  
Secondary Application Category:climate change assessment 
Watershed Description:~1.5 million km^2 Missouri River, located in the Great Plains region in the west central part of the U.S. 
Calibration Summary:1965-89 graphical comparisons between simulated and measured reservoir system storages are shown 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:U.S. Army Corp of Engineers reservoir operational rules were incorporated into a modified version of SWAT. Reservoir storages were simulated much more accurately with the modified SWAT over a 25-year period. Simulation of arbitrary climate change impacts (e.g., 10% increase in precip.) indicate rules would have to be changed if climate changes.
