This Landlab driver illustrates the use of Landlab ecohydrology components to model semi-arid ecohydrological dynamics driven by a storm pulse and solar radiation. Components (names given in parenthesis) we will use are:
* Solar radiation (Radiation)
* Potential Evapotranspiration (PotentialEvapotranspiration)
* Soil Moisture (SoilMoisture)
* Vegetation (Vegetation)
A digital elevation model (DEM) of a headwater region in central New Mexico (latitude 34N) will be used as input.
Components will be introduced step by step. First, we will start with mapping solar radiation and potential evapotranspiration (PET). Note that some of the commands used are only to provide information about the in/outputs of components and can be deleted or not run. We will then run soil moisture and vegetation modules and show how to write outputs in a file.
