Summary

A previous soil-water balance (SWB) model [Smith and Westenbroek, 2015; http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/sir20155038) for Minnesota was updated to simulate potential recharge rates from 2014 to 2018. The previous model was developed to estimate mean annual potential recharge from 1995 to 2010. The updated model was also run with a newer version of the SWB model, also known as SWB version 2.0 {Westenbroek and others, 2018; https://doi.org/10.3133/tm6A59). The updated model was used to extract potential recharge rates for comparison to recharge rates calculated for two agricultural field sites in southeastern Minnesota, as part of the associated report, U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2020-5006 (http://dx.doi.org/10.3133/sir20205006).

Material Request Instructions

The Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model is available for free from the U.S. Geological Survey through Github (https://github.com/smwesten-usgs/swb2_examples). Several versions of the model are available. The version used for this model was beta version 2.0 (February 14, 2018). To ensure the same results, please use the version distributed with this data release.

Purpose

This model was created to estimate potential recharge rates for the entire Minnesota from 2014 to 2018, with results extracted for comparison to a field study located in Fillmore County, Minnesota. The development of the model input and output files included in this data release are documented in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2020-5006 (https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20205006).
