Watershed Description:8,336 km^2 Island of Crete, located in southern Greece. 
Calibration Summary:Semi-automatic calibration of monthly streamflow in 15 gauging stations using SUFI-2 (SWAT-CUP program). Regionalization of calibrated parameters in ungauged subbasins. Manual calibration of 47 springs with daily values (one a month using a karst-flow model. 
Validation Summary:Validation of the model checking the performance in 7 streamflow gauging stations not involved in the calibration. 
General Comments:The KSWAT model is the integration of the SWAT model (adapted to reproduce karst features) and a karst-flow model. With this calibrated model we studied the water balance of the Island of Crete in different hydrological conditions providing insightful information of water resources for a their sustinaible management.
