Title:Hydrologic parameterization of watersheds for runoff prediction using SWAT 
Authors:Manguerra, H.B., and B.A. Engel 
Year:1998 
Journal:Journal of the American Water Resources Association 
Volume:34(5) 
Pages:1149-1162 
Article ID: 
DOI:10.1111/j.1752-1688.1998.tb04161.x 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:HRU and/or subwatershed delineation effects 
Secondary Application Category:input effects 
Watershed Description:113.4 km^2 Greenhill (west central Indiana) and two other watersheds 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Monthly (1991-95) E values reported as a function of subbasins: E =.93 to 1.0 (from 1 to 26? subbasins) --------------------------- E improved from .69 to .77 for the "Animal Science Watershed" as a function of CN calibration 
General Comments:SWAT 94.2 was used with SWAT-GRASS to assess the effects of using different subwatershed configurations or different CN inputs on surface runoff volumes. The authors state that using virtual watersheds can adequately capture the spatial variability of watersheds.
