Abstract
The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) was evaluated while modeling daily stream flow in Limnatis basin, Cyprus over a period of seven years. Stream flow data from 2006-2008 were used as a warm up period, the period 2008- 2010 was used to calibrate the model and stream flow, data from 2008-2012 were used for the validation. The model could adequately predict daily stream flow trends with Nash-Sutcliffe values of 0.68. Overall the results of the simulation indicate that SWAT model can be an effective tool for the modeling of stream flow in intermittent rivers like Limnatis, and could contribute valuable information for successful catchment management.
