Ecohydrological Model:

  • SWIM - Soil and Water Integrated Model investigates climate and land use change impacts at the regional scale, where the impacts are manifested and adaptation measures take place. It combines the relevant ecohydrological processes at the mesoscale such as runoff generation, nutrient and carbon cycling, river discharge, plant growth and crop yield, and erosion.
