Watershed Description:5,000 km^2 Estancia drainage area, located in central New Mexico, U.S. 
Calibration Summary:graphical results shown for comparisons with 1915-19 monthly obserrved data; other comparisons made 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was interfaced with the MODFLOW and LAK2 models to assess how current climate conditions would impact water levels in lake Estancia, which existed in the late Pleistocene era (~126,000 - 10,000 year BP). The results of applying the complete simulation system indicated that net inflow (surface water + groundwater + direct precipitation - ET) would have to increase by a factor of ~15x to maintain lake levels that existed during the late Pleistocene.
