Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:climate change 
Secondary Application Category:hydrologic assessment 
Watershed Description:5,000 km^2 Upper Wind River, located in northwestern Wyoming, U.S. 
Calibration Summary:monthly (1990-97) r2 = .91 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:Climate change impacts were simulated with SWAT via arbitrary changes in precipitation, temperature, CO2, relative humidity, and solar radiation. Precipitation was the most influtential variable on annual water yield and temperature affected streamflow timing the most. The other climate effects had noticeable but lower impacts. The spring snowmelt streamflow peak occurred one month earlier with the higher temperatures.
