The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is a watershed-scale hydrological model developed by the United States Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Research Service (USDA-ARS). The SWAT divides a watershed into sub-watersheds and hydrological response units (HRUs) using land use, soil, and topography information to simulate hydrological fluxes for each HRU at a daily time step. SWAT uses curve numbers to determine runoff while evapotranspiration is derived from the Penman–Monteith equation.
Simulation Round Specific Description: The SWAT model is set up for Godavari (Mishra et al. 2020) and Yellow and Rhine (Huang et al. 2020) river basins.
