Forest Fire Cellular Automata

One of the examples I used in class this week when talking about 'Complex Systems' and associated modelling approaches was the Forest Fire Cellular Automata model. I've produced an implementation of the model in NetLogo, complete with plots to illustrate the frequency-area scaling relationship of the resulting wildfire regime. I've updated the wildfire behaviour page on my website to include an applet of the NetLogo model (if that page gets changed in the future, you can view and experiment with the model here).
