One of the positive qualities of human beings is without doubt the inborn desire to expand their horizons, to see what lies beyond, to learn and understand.Another problem in Version 5 manifests itself as a jump in SST every 18 lines in the regularly gridded data. ... These error estimates are being developed for Pathfinder Version 6 using an error hypercube approach which partitions the matchup database into a multi-dimensional lookup table. ... These studies include climate research areas such as SST trend analysis (e.g., Casey and Cornillon, 2001), anbsp;...
