Use pyDeltaRCM in ten minutes!
You can get a model running with three simple lines of code.
First, we instantiate the main
pyDeltaRCM model object.
>>> import pyDeltaRCM >>> delta = pyDeltaRCM.DeltaModel()
Next, since this is just a simple demo, we will run for a few short timesteps.
The delta model is run forward with a call to the
update() method of the delta model.
So we loop the update function, and then finalize the model:
>>> for _ in range(0, 5): ... delta.update() >>> delta.finalize()
That’s it! You ran the pyDeltaRCM model for five timesteps.
We can visualize the delta bed elevation, though it’s not very exciting after only five timesteps…
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> fig, ax = plt.subplots() >>> ax.imshow(delta.bed_elevation, vmax=-3) >>> plt.show()
