IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Applying swat for non-point source pollution simulation to a data scarce catchment in china
Author : X.H. Zhang1, H.X. Li1, 2*, Y. Chen1 and T.Q. Ao1,2
In recent years, non-point source pollution in water quality management has become more and more significant for water environmental protection. The objective of this study was to apply the soil and water assessment tool (SWAT) for non-point source pollution simulation to a data scarce catchment, Yuanhe catchment, in South-East China. Model parameters were calibrated by making full use of the insufficient streamflow, sediment and nutrient data of the catchment. The results indicated that the simulated runoff and water quality values were acceptably close to the observed data. The results show that SWAT is a useful tool for non-point source pollution simulation for a data scarce catchment.
