Watershed Description:132000 km^2 Upper Danube Basin (Europe), which drains portions of Austria, Germany, Czech Republic and Slovakia, extending from the Danube source down to the Gabcikovo Reservoir near Bratislava. 
Calibration Summary:The streamflow components of the headwater subbasins were calibrated separately using SUFI-2 (Abbaspour, 2008) method in four sequential steps that focused on different hydrological processes. The calibration was performed in selected subbasins (donor). Once the donors were selected, a regionalization technique coupled with a classification procedure based on a similarity approach was applied. The similarity approach is based on the assumption that similar catchments behave hydrologically similarly. 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:In this study three methods for estimating hillslope length at basin scale were investigated.
