Title:Sensitivity analysis and calibration of the parameters of ESWAT: Application to the river Dender 
Authors:Vandenberghe V., A. van Griensven and W. Bauwens

Broad Application Category:pollutant only 
Primary Application Category:sub-daily hydrologic and/or pollutant processes 
Secondary Application Category:in-stream and/or channel processes 
Watershed Description:1,384 km^2 Dender River, located in Belgium. 
Calibration Summary:daily 1994 (may be just a portion of 1994) r2 values: DO = .62 algae = .66 
Validation Summary:Graphical results of predicted versus measured dissolved oxygen are shown for an hourly time step 
General Comments:A process is described to obtain the optimal set of sampling data for calibrating ESWAT. It was found that optmal experimental design (OED) methods can be used to find an iterative, sequential deisgn strategy to determine which in-stream water quality variables will be the most efficient for calibrating a water quality model.
