  • A detailed and systematic study of the nature of the discretization error associated with the upwind finite-difference method is presented. A basic model problem has been identified and based upon the results for this problem, a basic hypothesis regarding the accuracy of the computational solution of the Spencer-Lewis equation is formulated. The basic hypothesis is then tested under various systematic single complexifications of the basic model problem. The results of these tests provide the framework of the refined hypothesis presented in the concluding comments. 27 refs., 3 figs., 14 tabs.
  • Methods are presented and demonstrated for compensating for the apparent effects of truncation of the sampled crosswind distribution of a tracer, at either or both boundaries of a surface sampling grid downwind from the point of release. Errors and corrections on estimates of the apparent vertical mixing depth, h, the location of the centroid of the crosswind distribution, y-bar, and the crosswind dispersion parameter, sigma/sub y/, are those which would apply to a truncated Gaussian distribution having the observed moments (zeroth, first and second). For truncation on only one side of the tracer cloud, a linear relationship between certain measurablemore » quantities based on moments of partial distributions is used to derive the parameters of a best-fit truncated Gaussian distribution by linear regression. The methods are illustrated by an example from the Cross Appalachian Tracer Experiment and by a Gaussian simulation.« less
  • This paper presents a method for obtaining the optimum interrelation of discrete parameters which minimize the truncation error of a discrete equation with multiple parameters. The method forsakes the traditional concept of truncation effort and shows that the truncation error of a discrete equation can be minimized only when discrete parameters satisfy a special interrelation. The optimum parameter interrelation of a difference equation can be derived by applying this method to relevant difference migration. The use of continuation step determined by this method can result in optimum difference migration. The synthetic and real data results which were produced using thismore » optimum interrelation are shown in this paper. The results indicate that good seismic migration can be achieved only when the optimum interrelation is satisfied. Authors prove wrong the old opinion that the smaller the continuation step is, the better the migration effect is. This method may be used in analyzing the truncation error of all discrete equations.« less
