D. Kiniry, C. Smith, R. Srinivasan
The following proceedings are a collection of papers presented at the 2012 International Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) Conference held in New Delhi, India, July 18-20, 2012.
SWAT is a public domain model jointly developed by USDA Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) and Texas A&M AgriLife Research, part of The Texas A&M University System. SWAT is a small watershed to river basin-scale model to simulate the quality and quantity of surface and ground water and predict the environmental impact of land use, land management practices, and climate change. SWAT is widely used in assessing soil erosion prevention and control, non-point source pollution control and regional management in watersheds.
The papers presented in the 2012 proceedings cover the following topics:
- Large scale applications
- Climate change applications
- Sensitivity calibration and uncertainty
- Biofuel and plant growth
- Environmental applications
- Sediment, nutrients, and carbon
- Pesticides, bacteria, metals, and pharmaceuticals
- Model development
- Database and GIS application and development
- Urban processes and management
- Landscape processes and landscape / river continuum
- In-stream sediment and pollutant transport
- Ganga river basin management
- Swat applications and development in India
Presentations and video from the conference, along with more information on SWAT are available on the conference website.
