In science:

Within the framework of standard 1D model atmospheres the average thermal stratification of the 3D hydro model can not be reproduced with any reasonable choice of the mixing length parameter and formulation of the turbulent pressure.
Convection and observable properties of late-type giants
Application of these corrections to spectroscopic analyses of FGKM dwarfs can be facilitated by setting up a grid of standard stars spanning the same range of spectral types. A small number of standard stars could be analyzed with the most recent 3D atmospheres and non-LTE calculations using time-consuming methods.

Atmospheric removal using the array averages at each time step is then implemented using either the 850 µm array average (i.e. the standard SUR F) method, or the fit to the 450 µm array average method (Eq. 2).
A study of the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich increment using archival SCUBA data
Removing noisy bolometers, calibration and performing atmospheric removal before this binning ensures that the data in such mosaicked fiel ds are treated on an equal basis. A standard deviation map is also made for each field; this provides an estimate of the error in each p ixel.

However, improvement from the 450 µm atmospheric removal method is systematically lower than for the standard 850 µm method.

Why can’t we fit LSND into the three-neutrino theory? The LSND signal cannot be accommodated within the standard three-neutrino picture, given the solar and atmospheric oscillations.

Time means of the output fields are produced to gain an understanding of the overall characteristics of the modelled atmosphere, and the associated standard deviations to gain a quantitative understanding of the degree of variability in each field.

These plots show the greatest difference in standard deviation, with the location of the contours differing noticeably, particularly towards the top and bottom of the model atmosphere, although this may to some extent be due to the limited resolution in the vertical.
