FireGenerator
(mean_fire_recurrence=0.0, shape_parameter=0.0, scale_parameter=None)[source]¶Bases: landlab.core.model_component.Component
Generate a random fire event or time series.
Parameters:  mean_fire_recurrence : float
shape_parameter : float
scale_parameter : float, optional


Generate a random fire event in time.
Parameters:  mean_fire_recurrence : float
shape_parameter : float
scale_parameter : float, optional


generate_fire_recurrence
()[source]¶Get time to next fire.
Finds the time to next fire (fire recurrence) based on the scale parameter (63.5% of fire Weibull distribution) and the shape parameter (describes the skew of the histogram, shape = 3.5 represents a normal distribution).
Rounds the time to next fire to 4 significant figures, for neatness.
Returns:  float
