In this assignment students model different scenarios of landscape evolution using the cellular automata version of WILSIM. The assignment takes them through several situations involving changes in commonly modeled landscape variables like overland flow, faulting and uplift, erosivity, and drainage incision. At the end of the exercise, students test a hypothesis about the sensitivity of the model to changes in a variable.
The WILSIM project team will be developing additional activities. Check back here for progress.
If you have a teaching activity that uses WILSIM, please share it with us. Thanks!
