Model:ESWAT 
Broad Application Category:hydrologic & pollutant 
Primary Application Category:calibration, sensitivity, and/or uncertainty analysis 
Secondary Application Category:pollutant cycling/loss and transport 
Watershed Description:2,600 km^2 Wister Lake (Oklahoma) & 707 km^2 "Flemish portion" of Dender (Belgium) 
Calibration Summary:Daily 1991-93 Wister Lake: Red Oak E = .65 Cauthron E = .57 ---------------------------- Graphical daily flow comparisons between simulated and observed values are presented for both watersheds 
Validation Summary:Daily 1994-95 Wister Lake: Red Oak E = .55 Cauthron E = .78 ---------------------------- Graphical daily flow and pollutant (DO, Chlorophyll-a, total N for Wister Lake; nitrate, DO, BOD, ammonia, & phosphate for Dender) comparisons between simulated and observed values are presented for both watersheds 
General Comments:ESWAT components are described including a subhourly time step, revised infiltration routine, QUAL2E in-stream water quantity module, and an autocalibration subcomponent. An autocalibration approach based on the Shuffled Complex Evolution method was used to perform the calibration of the model for both watersheds. Incorporation of a "time convolution" and modified ET modules resulted in clear improvement in the final set of E statistics.
