The development of the European Hydrologic System (SHE) has now reached such a stage, that it is ready for practical applications. Extensive field testings and associated developments have been carried out in recent years. The testings have included the complete system as well as the individual components. Particular emphasis has been given to the development and testing of the soil water flow model.
The paper demonstrates results from a field testing of SHE on the Wye Catchment in Britain, as well as examples of applications on small experimental catchments in Germany and New Zealand.
