General Comments:The authors describe the following modifications they made to the original SWAT source code (which are described in more detail in their supplementary documentation provided with their previous study at https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-16-69-2012): (1) a higher number of spatial units to be simulated, (2) a new floodplain routine that accounts for flow from a stream channel onto floodplain HRUs, (3) the threshold for dormancy for tropical latitudes (20°N – 20°S) was decreased, (4) new parameters including an irrigation efficiency parameter and correction factors for measured inputs to support the uncertainty analyses they performed, and (5) additional output variables.
