Volume:18(10)

DOI:10.1002/hyp.1448 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic & pollutant 
Primary Application Category:pollutant cycling/loss and transport 
Secondary Application Category:hydrologic assessment 
Watershed Description:92.5 km^2 Nagwan (Hazaribagh District in northeast India) 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Monthly (1991-98) during monsoon season: flow r2 = .80 sediment r2 =.81 
General Comments:Generated monthly average rainfall was in close agreement with measured rainfall for 1981-98. The predicted runoff and sediment loss using generated weather also agreed well with measured data for 1991-98. The authors concluded that generated rainfall could be used in SWAT for long-term planning.
