Conservation Equation Model part of Teaching Computation in the Sciences Using MATLAB:Matlab Workshop 2016:Teaching Activities
Numerical models are widely used to simulate systems ranging from climate to traffic jams, yet a high percentage of college-level students have little awareness of how they are constructed and their limitations. ...
Illustrating Hillslope Diffusion with Physical and Numerical Models part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
This problem illustrates how numerical theories are developed, how we might test this theory with an analog model, and how numerical models are constructed and the limitations of numerical modeling.
Modeling Mono Lake's Water Balance part of Teach the Earth:Teaching Activities
In this activity students build a hydrologic model of Mono Lake in MATLAB and then use the model to evaluate the California State Water Board's 1994 decision regulating diversions from the watershed and ...
