The project will first assess the correctness of the information that went into the derivation of the proposed indices and the parameterization of field office APEX given our knowledge of the area. We will then compare land classification using the proposed indices to that provided by our own indices on one hand and SWAT results at the hydrological response unit (HRU) level on the other hand. Finally, we will evaluate the parameterization of field office APEX for 3 fields and 30 1-acre plots that represent various tillage strategies for row crop systems in GCEW, and compare it with our own parameterization that resulted from full calibration/validation using measured flow and water quality data at one field. This comparison of parameterization may result in improvements in both the field office APEX and our own parameterizations.
