ReSCAL (Real-Space Cellular Automaton Laboratory) is a generator of 3D multiphysics, markovian and stochastic cellular automata with continuous time. The model is an open-source package which has been described in full details in Rozier et al., . This project aims to provide spatio-temporal modeling of geological interfaces. It is conducted with the Geomorphology team and the Laboratoire de Dynamique des Fluides Géologiques, within the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris.
PI: Clément Narteau - Project Lead., Physical background and stochastic algorithms
