Landscape Simulation Modeling: A Spatially Explicit, Dynamic by Robert Costanza, Alexey Voinov

By Robert Costanza, Alexey Voinov

The international comprises many advanced structures, starting from our personal our bodies to ecosystems to fiscal structures. regardless of their range, advanced platforms have many structural and useful good points in universal that may be successfully si- lated utilizing strong, simple software program. consequently, almost an individual can - plore the character of complicated platforms and their dynamical habit below a variety of assumptions and stipulations. This skill to version dynamic structures is already having a robust effect on instructing and learning complexity. The books during this sequence will advertise this revolution in “systems pondering” by way of integrating computational talents of numeracy and methods of dynamic mod- ing right into a number of disciplines. The unifying subject matter around the sequence could be the energy and straightforwardness of the model-building procedure, and all books are designed to interact the reader in constructing their very own versions for exploration of the dyn- ics of structures which are of curiosity to them. Modeling Dynamic structures doesn't recommend any specific modeling paradigm or software program. particularly, the volumes within the sequence will emphasize simplicity of lea- ing, expressive energy, and the rate of execution as priorities that may facilitate deeper approach understanding.

Example text

The internal data structures of the variables in an SME simulation are accessible and modifiable using a set of object classes defined in the interface. The SME configuration commands control the automatic compiling and linking of the user-defined code (user code) with the SME simulation driver. The configuration information declares which variables in the simulation will have their data grids updated by functions defined in the user code and defines what simulation variables will be passed as arguments to each function.

2. Spatial Simulation Using the SME 33 Model The water level (in millimeters) at any point in the watershed is described by the following equation: Water(t ϩ dt) ϭ Water(t) ϩ Runoffin Ϫ Runoffout Ϫ Infiltration ϩ NetRainfall. Here, NetRainfall is the total amount of water from rainfall minus the amount of water that is evaporated and transpired. Runoffin describes the amount of water that is delivered to this point from upstream and Runoffout is the water that leaves the location to travel further downstream.

The developer can either utilize the existing hydrodynamic routines available in the Library of Hydro-Ecological Modules (LHEM) or develop their own routines to describe the hydrologic processes using the SME programming interface. Since preexisting routines can be found in LHEM that are suitable for the Erosion model, the required Cϩϩ routines are downloaded and stored in the UserCode directory in the SME project. config file: 2. Spatial Simulation Using the SME * WATER 37 UF(SWater1,END^SWTransport1, HYDRO, RUNOFF, SUSPENDED_SEDIMENT) In this command, WATER is the name of the variable we are configuring, and SWTransport1 is the name of the particular function that defines the hydrologic fluxes.
