Short summary
This study examined the applicability of the SWAT model to a moderately steep, temperate, small–sized catchment in Rotorua, New Zealand. It highlighted the importance of using high–frequency, event–based monitoring data for model calibration to alleviate the potential of underestimation of storm–driven fluxes. Parameter sensitivity was quantified for discharge, sediment and nutrient fluxes dependent on the relative dominance of base flow and quick flow.
