Special Issue SWAT: A Review of Advances in Ecohydrological Modelling with SWAT

October 2008

By Valentina Krysanova & Jeffrey G. Arnold – Published October, 2008

This Special Issue on Advances in Ecohydrological Modelling with SWAT results from the Model Developers Workshop held in Potsdam, Germany in October 2006. The Workshop was organized following three international SWAT conferences (in Giessen, Germany in 2001, in Bari, Italy in 2003 and in Zürich, Switzerland in 2005), and brought together people involved in the SWAT model development. The Workshop aimed to: (a) summarize the state-of-the-art of model development for the following: landscape processes, channel processes, plant growth, nutrients, carbon, bacteria, and the model interface tools; (b) determine the directions for further model development; (c) coordinate further model development steps and decide on how to test model alterations; and (d) conduct a version control training seminar to improve communication and collaboration. The newest SWAT model developments and outlines further research needs are presented herein.
