Watershed Description:693 km^2 Dill River, located in the southeast part of the Rhenish Massif region in Germany. 
Calibration Summary:monthly 1966-95 E = .93 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:The effects of CO2 on stomatal conductance and leaf area development were incorporated into the model for five different vegetation types (versus generic 40% decrease on stomatal conductance used in standard SWAT model for all plant species). The authors report flow impacts for 2070-99, relative to a 1961-90 baseline period, for the the IPCC B1-low and A2-high scenarios, which were based on output from five GCMs used in the European ACACIA project. 
Keywords:Climate change; Groundwater recharge; Streamflow; Stomatal conductance; Leaf area
