Brief Description: Base Wind generates circular, elliptical, or linear wind events, dependent upon wind speed. Wind events are not sensitive to landscape continuity. Inputs are dependent upon ecoregion (or 'landtype') specific inputs. Base Wind follows the principles of previous LANDIS models. However, there are significant changes in User inputs and behavior; see the User Guide for further information.
