  • So you still have to resort to parametrization, knowing that slightly different values of your parameters will give you very different responses.

  • Different models will produce clouds in diferent locations and different altitudes, depending on their parametrization, on the water vapor transport i.e. 3-dimensional dynamics of the atmosphere.

  • We consider that these five are consistent within the systematic uncertainty of the PGR models, which may have a range of uncertainty of 0.5 mm/yr depending on earth structure parametrization employed Mitrovica and Davis, 1995.

  • In addition to the explicitly resolved scales of motions, the models also contain parametrization schemes representing the so-called subgrid-scale processes, such as radiative transfer, turbulent mixing, boundary layer processes, cumulus convection, precipitation, and gravity wave drag.

  • The MathWorld article on superellipses concludes: "While [it] is clearly capable of describing a number of diverse biological shapes having a variety of symmetries, it seems unlikely that this formula has any particularly fundamental biological significance beyond as a possibly convenient parametrization".
