The models described in this course will be developed using TerraME. TerraME is an extension of the Lua language. Some useful documents about TerraME:

Students should read the TerraME EMS paper first, to get a sense of the language. Then they should read the Lua papers, to learn about programming in Lua.

Please also install the terrame_addons and the viewer package.
