Simulation of stream flow, prediction of the hydrological behavior of watersheds and understanding of various components of the hydrological cycle is important in order to plan for protection of water resources. On the other hand, lack of proper estimation of runoff in the watersheds, may cause serious problems in the optimum management of water resources and particularly the utilization of dams and water transfer systems. The main objectives of present study were application and test the performance of Soil and Water Assessment Tool SWAT as a simulator of monthly stream flow in the Ghareh Su watershed with an area of km 2. The performance of the model was evaluated by coefficient of determination and Nash—Sutcliffe efficiency. The statistical analysis showed a satis factory agreement between observed and simulated monthly discharge values, in Yamchi hydrometric station during the calibration and validation periods.
SWAT was developed to predict the impact of land management practice on water, sediment and agricultural chemical yields in large complex watersheds with varying soils, land use and management conditions over long periods of time. It was designed to predict the impact of proposed or alternative land management practices on water, sediment and agricultural chemical yields within complex watersheds of varying soils, land use and management conditions over extended periods of time. The model operates on a daily time step, it is process based, computationally efficient, and capable of continuous simulation over long time periods. SWAT has the capability of incorporating a number of differing physical processes major model components in water shed modelling, these include;. In modelling a watershed may be partitioned into a number of sub-watersheds which are then further subdivided into hydrologic response units HRUs that consist of homogeneous land use, management, topographical, and soil characteristics. The HRUs are represented as a percentage of the subwatershed area and may not be contiguous or spatially identified within a SWAT simulation. Alternatively, a watershed can be subdivided into only subwatersheds that are characterized by dominant land use, soil type, and management.
Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. River basins are important hydrological and environmental improvements, and if managed properly, they generate steady streamflow from baseflow and runoff. Runoff is the water flow that occurs when soil is saturated and excess water from rain, snowmelt, or other sources flows over the land surface and is a major component of the hydrologic cycle . As with all characteristics of the water cycle, the interaction between precipitation and runoff varies according to time and location . Runoff plays a crucial role in the hydrological cycle by discharging excess precipitation to the oceans to control the amount of water flows into streams .
Abstract Modern mathematical models have been developed for studying the complex hydrological processes of a watershed and their direct relation to weather, topography, geology and land use. It aims to simulate the stream flow, establish the water balance and estimate the monthly volume inflow to Simly Dam in order to help the managers to plan and handle this important reservoir. The ArcSWAT interface implemented in the ArcGIS software was used to delineate the study area and its sub-components, combine the data layers and edit the model database. The model was calibrated from to and evaluated from to Based on four recommended statistical coefficients, the evaluation indicates a good performance for both calibration and validation periods and acceptable agreement between measured and simulated values of both annual and monthly scale discharge.

Journal of Hydroinformatics 1 January ; 23 1 : 1— Calibration and uncertainty analysis of a complex, over-parameterized environmental model such as the Soil and Water Assessment Tool SWAT requires thousands of simulation runs and multiple calibration iterations. A parallel calibration system is thus desired that can be deployed on cloud-based architectures for reducing calibration runtime.
A hydrologic model, calibrated using only streamflow data, can produce acceptable streamflow simulation at the watershed outlet yet unrealistic representations of water balance across the landscape. Recent studies have demonstrated the potential of multi-objective calibration using remotely sensed evapotranspiration ET and gaged streamflow data to spatially improve the water balance. To address these limitations, we assessed how a spatially explicit, distributed calibration approach that uses 1 remotely sensed ET data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer MODIS and 2 frequently overlooked biophysical parameters can improve the overall predictability of two key components of the water balance: streamflow and ET at different locations throughout the watershed. We employed a novel stepwise series of calibration experiments to isolate the effects on streamflow and simulated ET of integrating biophysical parameters and spatially explicit remotely sensed ET data into model calibration.
Да, подумал он, время еще. Он огляделся - кругом царил хаос. Наверху включились огнетушители. ТРАНСТЕКСТ стонал.
В полумраке ей удалось различить руку Хейла.
