Watershed Description:1890 ha Moores Creek located in northwest Arkansas, U.S. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Relative errors reported as a function of DEM resolution for 1997-2000. 
General Comments:SWAT was calibrated on an annual basis for flow, nitrate, and total P. DEM resolution affects the watershed delineation, stream network, and subbasin classification. The minimum DEM resolution ranged from 100 to 200 m to achieve <10% error in SWAT output for flow, nitrate, and total P predictions. The authors state that the choice of DEM size is a function of the watershed of interest. 
Keywords:SWAT; DEM data resolution; output uncertainty
