Soil - Plant - Atmosphere - Water Field & Pond Hydrology

SPAW is a daily hydrologic budget model for agricultural fields and ponds (wetlands, lagoons, ponds and reservoirs). Included are irrigation scheduling and soil nitrogen. Data input and results are graphical screens.

The SPAW (Soil-Plant-Air-Water) computer model simulates the daily hydrologic water budgets of agricultural landscapes by two connected routines, one for farm fields and a second for impoundments such as wetland ponds, lagoons or reservoirs. Climate, soil and vegetation data files for field and pond projects are selected from those prepared and stored with a system of interactive screens. Various combinations of the data files readily represent multiple landscape and ponding variations.
