Title:Macroscale hydrologic modeling for regional climate assessment studies in the southeastern United States 
Authors:Limaye, A.S., T.M. Boyington, J.F. Cruise, A. Bulus, and E. Brown 
Journal:Journal of the American Water Resources Association 
Article ID: 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:climate change  
Secondary Application Category:hydrologic assessment 
Watershed Description:2,345 km^2 Dale Hollow (north central Tennessee) 
Calibration Summary:1966-90 E values: daily = .42 monthly = .74 
Validation Summary:1991-93 E values: daily = .45 monthly = .80 
General Comments:Down-scaled GCM climate impacts were compared with observed climate inputs for discharge predictions with SWAT. A loss of "predictive skill" of 68% (E = .24) occurred with the GCM inputs. The authors state that using GCM inputs for short-term wateshed-scale analyses is probably not advisable.
