Additional Monitoring Resources

Resources for Specific Models:

American Society of Civil Engineers. Parameter Estimation of Streeter-Phelps Models.

Michigan State University, Institute of Water Research. Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) : an online soil erosion assessment tool using the soil loss equation (A = R * K * LS * C * P).

Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT)): a river basin scale model developed to quantify the impact of land management practices in large and complex watersheds. SWAT is a public domain model supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service.

U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. A kinematic runoff and erosion model (KINEROS2): continuous an event oriented, physically based model describing the processes of interception, infiltration, surface runoff and erosion from small agricultural and urban watersheds.

U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. AGricultural Non-Point Source Pollution Model (AGNPS): continuous simulation surface runoff model designed to assist with determining BMPs, the setting of TMDLs, and for risk and cost/benefit analyses.

U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. Rangeland Hydrology and Erosion Model (RHEM).

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources (BASINS 4): a free GIS tool for watershed analysis and monitoring.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. River and Stream Water Quality Model (QUAL2K): a one-dimensional river and stream water quality model for a well mixed, vertically and laterally channel with steady state hydraulics.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Water Quality Models: This site includes information and guidance on several simulation models and tools for watershed and water quality monitoring.

U.S. Geological Survey. Surface Water and Water Quality Models Information Clearinghouse (SNTEMP).
