Year:2000 
Journal:Journal of the American Water Resources Association 
Volume:36(2)

Article ID: 
DOI:10.1111/j.1752-1688.2000.tb04275.x 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:impoundment and/or wetland effects 
Secondary Application Category:climate change  
Watershed Description:~1.5 million km^2 Missouri River (U.S. Great Plains region) 
Calibration Summary:1965-89 graphical comparisons between simulated and measured reservoir system storages are shown 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:U.S. Army Corp of Engineers reservoir operational rules were incorporated into a modified version of SWAT. Reservoir storages were simulated much more accurately with the modified SWAT over a 25-year period. Simulation of arbitrary climate change impacts (e.g., 10% increase in precip.) indicate rules would have to be changed if climate changes.
