Introduction & Objective

Long term stresses such as land use/land cover change and climate change have an effect on hydrologic systems

Modeling effect of such stresses is impacted by the model scale

The effect of spatial scale on hydrologic modeling using the Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model will be studied by application to a study watershed

Hypothetically, a threshold spatial scale value should exist beyond which increasing scale does not have any effect

Attempt will be made to quantify this threshold value for the study area


Study area

Study Area

  • Upper Wabash Watershed

  • Located along north-east Indiana/north-west Ohio

  • Total drainage area 1,047,990 acres

  • Spans ten counties in IN, three in OH

  • Land use is mostly cropland and pasture

Required input data for swat modeling

Required Input Data for SWAT Modeling

  • Digital Elevation Model (DEM)

  • Land use/Land cover data

  • Soil data

  • Historical precipitation and temperature data from nearby weather stations

  • Historical streamflow data if model predicted streamflow is to be calibrated

  • Data on agricultural practices applied in the study area (not a requirement)


Methodology

Methodology

  • Delineate Upper Wabash watershed from DEM

  • Prepare input data to be used with SWAT

  • Run SWAT for study area

  • Examine model output; calibrate/validate if required

  • Examine effect of induced stresses on model output

  • Induced stresses include percent changes in precipitation, mean and standard deviation of temperature, land use/ land cover changes, etc

  • Study how the effect of such stresses change with model spatial scale, e.g. from sub watershed scale to watershed scale
