Title:Development of a comprehensive watershed model applied to study stream yield under drought conditions 
Authors:Perkins, S.P. and M. Sophocleous 
Volume (Issue):37(3) 
Article ID: 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:model and/or data interface 
Secondary Application Category:irrigation impacts or irrigation BMP scenarios 
Watershed Description:2,569 km^2 drainage area, which covers 1/2 of the Lower Republican River located in north central Kansas, U.S. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Monthly stream flow (1977-94) r2 = 0.85 (1977-90 was calibration & 1991-94 was validation; separate statistics are not reported) 
General Comments:Methodology for interfacing SWAT with MODFLOW groundwater model is described. Modeling system was able to simulate low flow conditions adequately which were of primary concern. Tributary flow was found to be the dominant flow component of stream yields. Reduced irrigation was found to result in increased baselflow and stream yields.
