DOI:10.1002/hyp.5927 
URL (non-DOI journals): 
Model:SWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic only 
Primary Application Category:HRU and/or subwatershed delineation effects 
Secondary Application Category:hydrologic assessment 
Watershed Description:92.5 km^2 Nagwan (Hazaribagh District in northeast India) 
Calibration Summary:calibrated parameters are based on values reported in Tripathi et al. (2003) 
Validation Summary:Monthly (1995-98) r2 values for configurations with 1, 12, or 22 subwatersheds = .86, .90, and .88 
General Comments:Three different subwatershed disaggregation schemes were evaluated with SWAT for the watershed. It was found that runoff was not very sensitive to the choice of 1, 12, or 22 subwatersheds. However, marked variations are reported for ET (5 to 48%), percolation (12 to 26%) and soil water content (.3? to 22%).
