Hydrological Modelling of Alberta - The Results

To model Alberta’s water resources we used the hydrologic model Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) in combination with the Sequential Uncertainty Fitting program (SUFI-2) to calibrate, validate, and perform uncertainty analysis based on the available measured river discharge data.
