Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was used in a minor and specific way, using SWAT output from a previous study. The authors state explicitly, "SWAT model outputs of transmission losses values of the Eastern Desert of Egypt catchments (Milewski et al., 2009), which were also adopted in this study, were evaluated through applying sensitivity analysis and were calibrated against measured runoff values from Wadi Girafi watershed Sinai (Milewski e al., 2009")."
