The hydrologic simulation model PROSPER was used to determine site water balances at eight IFS study sites. These data were then coupled with nutrient concentration data from lysimeters to determined nutrient outputs. Site specific climatic, vegetation, and soils data were used in the simulations. Examination of evapotranspiration (ET) and outflow components of PROSPER indicated reasonable model performance. ET estimates ranged form 33 to 105 cm/yr across the eight forested sites. On gauged watershed, there was generally good agreements between measured and predicted water and nutrient fluxes.
