The present study deals with an application of a physically based continuous hydrological model (SWAT2000) forhydrological modeling of small agricultural watershed of Gowai river catchment in Eastern India. The watershed was digitally delineated using AVSWAT interface that is a tight coupling between a hydrological model and GIS. Initially the model was calibrated (monsoon season of 1998) and validated (monsoon season of 2000) using landuse/landcover data extracted from Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS-1D LISS-III) pertaining to 29th October 1998 and 23rd October 2000.The time series plots and statistical measures were used to verify the model prediction.
