Abstract: Climate change is an inevitable phenomenon that has lead the earth to evolve from an ice age to present era. Due to rise in temperature, rate of Evapotranspiration is increasing that leads to higher rate of maximum event. This raises the need to analyse the watersheds which shows considerable vulnerability towards climate change. SWAT model is chosen to simulate the analysis which is a semi-distributed hydrological model. The model run has been carried out for 35 years where model outputs are compared with the observed values of Evapotranspiration. Model is successfully validated for five years giving NSE as 0.89. Calibrated & Validated model shows that average values of Evapotranspiration & Surface Runoff in mm against 882mm of rainfall are 303mm & 285mm respectively. A Hathmati watershed of western India is taken to demonstrate the work.
Keywords: SWAT, Hathmati, Evapotranspiration, Surface Runoff.
