Metadata

Also known as
Model type Single
Model part of larger framework
Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 2D
Spatial extent Watershed-Scale
Model domain Terrestrial
One-line model description Landscape evolution model
Extended model description This is a Java Applet that allows the user to change different parameters (such as rainfall, erodibility, tectonic uplift) and watch how the landform evolve over time under different scenarios. It is based on a Cellular Automata algorithm. Two versions are available: linear and non-linear. Details can be found in:
