The high variabilities associated with the mean profile
shows the profiles to be inconsistent, with other parameters affecting the relative proportions of toxins, potentially including variabilities in toxin content within phytoplankton, and/or differences in shellfish metabolism between species or in different geographical areas.
According to ISO 13473-1:1997 Characterisation of Pavement Texture by Use of Surface Profiles--Part 1: Determination of Mean Profile
Depth irregularities of texture are classified into microtexture (texture wavelengths: < 0.5 mm; amplitudes: 0.001-0.5 mm), macrotexture (texture wavelengths: 0.5-50 mm; amplitudes: 0.1-20 mm) and megatexture (texture wavelengths: 50-500 mm; amplitudes: 0.1-50 mm) as a function of wavelengths.
Assuming the depth of horizons of noneroded soils as a standard, the mean profile
of slightly eroded soil was reduced not only by the loss of the whole E horizon, but also by the loss of 48% of Bt1 horizon.
ANSYS Fluent implements the so-called "Vortex Method"  which is based on a Lagrangian form of the vorticity equation to provide perturbations on a given mean profile
. On the other hand, only a quite basic synthetic turbulent generator based on white noise random fluctuation superposition is available in OpenFOAM.
(2007) applied the results of CT scans to measure the mean profile
depth (MPD) of concrete field cores in accordance with ASTM E 1845 (2005).
Volkswagen's Scirocco R is firmly in the other camp, with plenty of pace to match the mean profile
- it looks a bit like a squashed Golf, in a good way.
About this lack of statistical significance Fernandes & Barros (2001) and Fernandes (2005) suggest that it is due to the very unique characteristics of each subject that do not allow the determination of a mean profile
of this population.
In order to assess the magnitude of the ozone destruction, for each episode, the differences with respect to the vertical mean profile
outside of the polar vortex have been calculated.
Interpretability is gained from the principal components in a graphical sense by investigating the possible effect that each component has on the geometry of the mean profile
These norms, which have not been empirically substantiated, are more conservative in application and allow for wider deviation from the mean profile
elevation score in determining high and low profile elevations.
The overall mean profile
for Mexico is lower than the U.S.
These two methods were used to demonstrate how constructing a mean profile
from several vertical profiles over the same points can reduce the uncertainty.
