    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract SWAPS is a one-dimensional soil-vegetation-atmosphere-transfer model (SVAT) developed at SC-DLO. A description of the theory behind SWAPS and the processes which it is intended to simulate is given. These processes are interception, vegetation transpiration, soil evaporation, soil moisture transport, soil heat transport, and radiative transfer (in a vegetation canopy). Many of these processes are interdependent: evaporation and/or transpiration link the surface energy balance and soil moisture balance; transpiration is subject to biophysical controls.
