The value and vulnerability of tropical peatlands is nowadays widely recognised. To increase knowledge of the hydroloy of peat swamp forests and to promote sustainable management model studies can be a useful tool. In this study the Sebangau catchment in Kalimantan, Indonesia, is modelled in SIMGRO. By means of model input geohydrological data for the area were integrated. Model calculations give an impression of the spatial distrubution of groundwater levels and of fluctuations throughout the years. Further refining of the model however is a requisite to make the model suitable for simulation of landuse scenarios.
