In this paper we describe the response of a Kinetic Monte Carlo model to time-varying growth conditions. We vary temperature and partial pressure sinusoidally and identify behavior typical of low-dimensional nonlinear systems. In particular, the frequency content of the roughness response is sensitive to the presence of steps in the surface.
