In science:

The advantage of the coarse graining scheme S = S 1 is that it is unlikely to have more than one “bad region”, and that this single bad region can be handled by an appropriate surgery, once appropriate Green function estimates for the RWRE in a “good environment” are derived, see Section 4.3.
Multiscale analysis of exit distributions for random walks in random environments
More accurate approximations can be found , but the above approximations are good enough to capture the qualitative behavior of the pseudo-Green function, and of the distribution of the occupation time.
