Abstract : The MULTISED (Multiple Watershed Storm Water and Sediment Runoff Simulation) model was evaluated as a tool which will help Army land managers assess the environmental conditions of troop training areas to determine the need for remedial action. The sensitivity of model parameters was explored using two watersheds. Guidelines for calibrating the model were developed based on a best fit criterion between measured and computed runoff hydrographs. The results support MULTISED application and indicate how improvements to the model can be made.
