;;Markov model by Ben Davies

globals [ weather ]

patches-own [ growth ]

;;clear the model, create weather variable with two states: wet or dry
;;seed patches with random growth and scale their colour accordingly

to setup
  clear-all
  set weather one-of [ "WET" "DRY" ]
  ask patches [
    set growth random 11
    set pcolor scale-color green growth 10 0
  ]
  reset-ticks
end 

to go
  markov-rain
  grow-grass
  tick
  if ticks = 500 [ stop ]
end 

;;if the weather is currently wet AND a randomly drawn value between 0 and 1 is less 
;;than the wet-to-dry transition, transition to dry conditions
;;ELSE
;;if the weather is currently dry AND a randomly drawn value between 0 and 1 is less 
;;than the wet-to-dry transition, transition to wet conditions

to markov-rain
  ifelse weather = "WET" [
    if random-float 1.000 < WTD [
      set weather "DRY"
    ]
  ]
  [
    if random-float 1.000 < DTW [
      set weather "WET"
    ]
  ]
end 

;;if conditions are wet AND grass is not at its maximum, grow grass and recolor patches
;;ELSE
;;if conditions are dry AND grass is not at its minimum, decrease grass and recolor patches

to grow-grass 
  ifelse weather = "WET" [
    ask patches with [ growth < 10 ] [
      set growth growth + 1
      set pcolor scale-color green growth 10 0
    ]
  ]
  [
    ask patches with [ growth > 0 ] [
      set growth growth - 1
      set pcolor scale-color green growth 10 0
    ]
  ]
end
