Short summary
We developed an integrated water system model by coupling multiple water-related processes in hydrology, biogeochemistry, water quality and ecology, and considering the interference of human activities. The parameter sensitivity and autocalibration modules were also developed to improve the simulation efficiency. The proposed model was applied in the Shaying River catchment, which is a highly regulated and heavily polluted region in China.
