Watershed Description:16,000 km^2 Medjerda River, which drains areas of 7,700 km^2 in northeast Algeria and 8,300 km^2 in northwest Tunisia. (subwatershed gauge sites located at Rarai (314 km^2), Fernana (163 km^2), and Bou Salem, which is the overall outlet). 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Monthly (Sept. 88 - March 99) r2/E values: Rarai = .62 /.59 Bou Salem = .75/.53 Fernana = .84/.84 ---------------------------- Daily (Sept. 88 - March 99) r2/E values: Rarai = .66 /.33 Fernana = .69/.41 Bou Salem = .44/.23 
General Comments:Some graphical comparisons of measured and predicted suspended sediment and nitrate presented. Two scenarios reported: (1) conversion of all cropland to irrigated wheat, and (2) wastewater treament plants for all urban areas; sizeable ortho-phosphate & ammonia reductions predicted for the second scenario.
