Uneven sampling of the gradient and segment-wise RMSEP

The root mean square error of prediction (RMSEP) is a measure of the performance of a transfer function for reconstructing past environmental conditions from fossil microfossil assemblages based on the modern relationship between species and the environment in a calibration … Continue reading

Effect of incomplete sampling of environmental space on transfer functions

When I wrote a requiem for the dinocyst-salinity transfer function, one of the issues I raised was the effect of incomplete sampling of environmental space such that transfer functions were forced to interpolate (extrapolation I’ve examined elsewhere). I raised the … Continue reading
