Cellular automaton (CA)
- Cellular automaton: square array of cells where each cell takes one of the 6 values representing the landscape on a 1-square mile resolution
- Evolving single-parameter model: a cell dies out at random times and is replaced by a cell chosen randomly within a circular radius r (1<r). The time-scale is the average life of a cell (~100 yrs)
- Constraint: The proportions of land types are kept equal to the proportions of the experimental data
- Conditions: - boundary: periodic and reflecting
- initial: random and ordered
