Watershed Description:683,200 km^2 Texas Gulf Basin reigon, which covers 80% of Texas (including 15 major river basins and 8 coastal basins), U.S. 
Calibration Summary:Annual (1965-89) streamflow statistic ranges for 35 8-digit watersheds: r2 = .23 - .96 (28 > .50, 22 > .60, 15 > .70) E = -1.11 - .87 (15 > .50) 
Validation Summary:Monthly (1965-89) streamflow r2/E values: Seguin River = .95/.86 Naches River = .40/.82 Colorado River = .80/.53 
General Comments:The complete article can be accessed via the URL link rather than the DOI. SWAT was applied to entire Texas Gulf Basin; annual calibration (1965-74) and validation (1965-89) were performed for 35 8-digit watersheds (r2 and E values) reported for the validation period. Sediment loading estimates compared reasonably well with measured loads for six major river basins. Some graphical results are also shown.
