IMPALA will deliver a step change in global model climate prediction for Africa on the 5-40 year timescale by delivering reductions in model systematic errors, resulting in reduced uncertainty in predictions of African climate and enabling improved assessment of the robustness of multi-model projections for the continent.
However, mounting evidence shows that people tend to make systematic errors in judgment and decision-making and that there is a high level of diversity in how rational individuals are.
On the one hand, the web pages of commune offices, and the bulletins of public information placed there, are evaluated as potential innovation carriers and, on the other, what we have here is a unique attempt at the identification of systematic errors in the process of public services rendering.
The altimeter measurements include systematic errors and random errors, and the systematic errors should be calibrated carefully before the lunar topography calculation.
However, these sensors based on MEMS technology are vulnerable to systematic errors (scale factor, bias and misalignment).
This eliminates poor serial number-specific control goals, due to random or systematic errors.
"Is this apparent 10-billion-year age gap real, or is it due to systematic errors in determining cluster ages?
In Table 2 shows the calculated values of [epsilon]' for [[epsilon].sub.vat] = [infinity] [??] [[epsilon].sub.vat] = 81 for different values of the volumetric moisture content, as well as the values of the systematic errors of the mathematical model in the frequency range 100 MHz - 1 GHz, which are defined as ([[epsilon]'.sub.m] - [[epsilon]'.sub.81])/ [[epsilon]'.sub.[infinity]] ([[epsilon]'.sub.[infinity]], ND [[epsilon]'.sub.81] are the equivalent dielectric permittivities of a layered medium for [[epsilon].sub.vat] = [infinity], [[epsilon].sub.vat] = 81 and [[epsilon].sub.nld] = 2).
We did not observe any constant or proportional systematic errors between the assay methods.
Some of the most recent general circulation models (GCMs) still exhibit the same negative bias as in the 1990s, associated with large geopotential height systematic errors. Indeed, the bias associated with the zonal flow (i.e., when blocking is not occurring) is larger than the bias due to blocking, suggesting that blocking is not the only culprit.
In fact, the inertial sensor errors are generally composed of two components: systematic errors and stochastic errors [6] [7].
