Watershed Description:59.8 km^2 Aar River, located in the Lahn-Dill-Bergland region in the state of Hessen, Germany. 
Calibration Summary:two years - not reported 
Validation Summary:1986-87 daily: E = .63 1983-87 monthly: E = .74 
General Comments:SWAT was interfaced with the Proland economic model & ELLA ecological model. A "grassland incentive" scenario was compared relative to a 1987 land use baseline. The grassland area increased from 20 to 41% and forest area declined ~70%, in response to the scenario. SWAT-predicted Stream flow and surface water increased in response to the landuse change; skylark habitat declined, based on the ELLA analysis.
