SW/Tool Type:
Open Source

Name:
SWAP

Description:
SWAP (Soil, Water, Atmosphere and Plant) simulates transport of water, solutes and heat in unsaturated/saturated soils. The model is designed to simulate flow and transport processes at field scale level, during growing seasons and for long term time series. It offers a wide range of possibilities to address both research and practical questions in the field of agriculture, water management and environmental protection.

Notes:
SWAP adheres to the open source philosophy. This allows other research teams to integrate the model into all kinds of Decision Support Systems. This has been done at various occasions (e.g. the PEARL team, http://www.pearl.pesticidemodels.eu/home.htm)

Recent versions of the model are distributed without a Graphical User Interface.
