Watershed Description:Athabasca River, which flows from the Rocky Mountains to Lake Athabasca and is the second largest river system in Alberta, Canada. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:This study features regional-scale modelling of soil heterotrophic respiration (RH), which is the first RH modelling that has been performed using SWAT. This was accomplished by inserting a a newly developed, mechanistic, hydro-biogeochemical model into SWAT that simulates RH Meteorological variables, dissolved oxygen and redox potential dominantly control RH.
