In the smaller-scale regime, the grid intervals are much smaller than the turbulence scale, such that the energy-containing eddies are resolved--the large-eddy simulation (LES) and direct numerical simulation (DNS) approaches.
At larger scales (perhaps grid intervals >10 km or so), the success demonstrated by NWP forecast models implies that the smoothed fields reasonably well represent the dynamics at those scales, seemingly justifying the neglect of higher-order terms.
The threshold length of valley-fill method has similar significance of the grid interval of grid method.
The Figure 4 presents summit level map for the central region of State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, based on grid interval of 4 km (AIRES et al., 2012).
Along the scarp, some mega-landslide blocks are observed in the summit level map of the grid interval of 2 and 1 km.

If the data were very dense in Cameroon, many grid intervals would have been tested.
I now use a computer spreadsheet program to generate the grids for any value of Cn and for any values of the two grid intervals, but the tests my original technique used are still valid for determining the validity of scales extracted from these grids.
