Watershed Description:Rural meso-catchments 468 km^2 Stor, 517 km^2 Treene, and 50 km^2 Keilstau in northern Germany with sandy, loamy and peaty soils. 
Calibration Summary:Sensitivity tests were conducted to assess the most sensitive parameters for the model set-up in these particular lowland catchments. For the calibration of the Kielstau catchment, this was performed by changing each parameter ten times within its allowable range. One parameter at a time was adjusted, while the others were kept unchanged. Table 2 shows the variables considered, their definition and their allowable range in SWAT.
