Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was interfaced with MODLFOW.LAK2 and LEEM (Lake Energy balance model) to calculate the hydrologic balance of Lake Estancia during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM; ~25,000 to ~15,000 BP). Examination of previously proposed scenarios of Late Pleistocene climate suggest that LGM precipitation levels may have been 2x versus current levels; temperatures were cooler and runoff was as much as 15% of precipitation inputs.
