Topics such as the sustainability and vulnerability of land management practices on water quality and quantity are very important in these days both for decision makers and for citizens. The enviroGRIDS FP7 project addresses some of these topics in the Black Sea Catchment area. One of the software tools developed in this project is gSWAT. It allows the calibration of SWAT hydrological models in a flexible development environment and uses distributed computational infrastructures to speedup the

The development of SWAT (Soil Water Assessment Tool) hydrological models is a well-known procedure for the hydrological specialists and this paper highlights, from the end-users point of view, the scenarios related with the calibration procedures available in the gSWAT application.
