Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:model comparison 
Secondary Application Category:hydrologic assessment 
Watershed Description:5,568 km^2 (eastern Illinois and western Indiana) 
Calibration Summary:1987-95: daily E = .79 monthly E = .88 
Validation Summary:1972-86: daily E = .74 monthly E = .84 
General Comments:SWAT & HSPF were compared versus measured streamflow data . The SWAT predictions were found to be slightly better, primarily due to better simulation of the low flows. Factors affecting low flow and baseflow simulations were differences in PET calculations between the models and the lack of a distinct tile drainage component in HSPF.
