Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:pollutant only 
Primary Application Category:model interface 
Secondary Application Category:none 
Watershed Description:7,742 ha Goodwater Creek (north central Missouri) 
Calibration Summary:calibration was reported to have been performed in previous study 
Validation Summary: 
General Comments:SWAT was reported to have been calibrated in a previous study and to have generated reliable estimates for different pollutants including atrazine. An economic analysis was performed to assess the economic value of riparian buffers for different target in-stream atrazine concentrations. SWAT was used to estimate the impact of alternative management systems. Results are incorporated in the form of regression equation(s). Economic values and regression statistics are reported; no actual SWAT results are reported.
