Effectiveness of Low Impact Development Practices: Literature Review and Suggestions for Future Research
Low impact development (LID) is a land development strategy for managing stormwater at the source with decentralized micro-scale control measures. Since the emergence of LID practices, they have beenExpand

Sensitivity Analysis, Calibration, and Validations for a Multisite and Multivariable SWAT Model
The ability of a watershed model to mimic specified watershed processes is assessed through the calibration and validation process. The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) watershed model wasExpand

Effectiveness of Vegetative Filter Strips in Retaining Surface-applied Swine Manure Constituents
Simulated rainfall was used to evaluate the effectiveness of vegetative filter strips (VFS) of varying lengths (0, 3, 6, 9, 15, and 21 m) in reducing sediment and nutrient losses from plots treatedExpand

Development of a multiobjective optimization tool for the selection and placement of best management practices for nonpoint source pollution control
[1] Best management practices (BMPs) are effective in reducing the transport of agricultural nonpoint source pollutants to receiving water bodies. However, selection of BMPs for placement in aExpand

Water quality model output uncertainty as affected by spatial resolution of input data
Resolution of the input GIS data used to parameterize distributed-parameter hydrologic/water quality models may affect uncertainty in model outputs and impact the subsequent application of modelExpand

Effectiveness of Vegetative Filter Strips in Controlling Losses of Surface-applied Poultry Litter Constituents
Vegetative filter strips (VFS) have been shown to have high potential for reducing nonpoint source pollution from cultivated agricultural source areas, but information from uncultivated source areasExpand

Uncertainty in TMDL Models
Although the U.S. Congress established the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) program in the original Clean Water Act of 1972, Section 303(d), it did not receive attention until the 1990s. Currently,Expand

Effectiveness of low impact development practices in two urbanized watersheds: retrofitting with rain barrel/cistern and porous pavement.
The impacts of urbanization on hydrology and water quality can be minimized with the use of low impact development (LID) practices in urban areas. This study assessed the performance of rainExpand

Sensitivity and identifiability of stream flow generation parameters of the SWAT model
Implementation of sensitivity analysis (SA) procedures is helpful in calibration of models and also for their transposition to different watersheds. The reported studies on SA of Soil and WaterExpand
