Journal:Ecological Modelling 
Volume (Issue):106(2-3) 
Article ID: 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic and pollutant 
Primary Application Category:pollutant cycling/loss and transport 
Secondary Application Category:calibration, sensitivity, and/or uncertainty analysis 
Watershed Description:96,000 km^2 Elbe River; portion that is located in eastern Germany. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Daily (3-5 year period) for 5 subwatersheds: E = .68 - .85 ---------------------------- seasonal nitrate r2 = .95 
General Comments:Provides a detailed description of the development of the SWIM model. Graphical comparisons between measured and simulated streamflows are presented. Graphical results are also shown for various nitrogen cycling components and sediment yield. Graphical sensitivity results are also shown.
