The sensitivity of 1-D cloud models to their required inputs is stressed with special attention to those parameters obtained from atmospheric soundings taken by the VAS or : G. D. Emmitt. Evaluation of two 1-D cloud models for the analysis of VAS soundings / By G. D. Emmitt, George C. Marshall Space Flight Center., United States. . Evaluation of the satellite Visual Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer Atmospheric Sounder (VISSR) has begun to document several of its critical shortcomings as far as numerical cloud models . In addition to performing model experiments using temperature and moisture profiles having the general characteristics of VAS soundings, standard input sensitivity tests were made and 1-D model.

This model of evaluation is beneficial to the trainer in allowing for two modes of evaluation to occur in order to improve positive outcomes for a successful course. The ability to conduct one on one survey with students. A Formative evaluation could be used more in the workplace since it provides information prior to the final implementation or during it. In education, this evaluation is very important because it is the main and more.

Sir, This is in reference to the letter criticizing the use of repeated measures ANOVA for measuring pain by visual analog scale (VAS).[] The author argues that the data on VAS in the original study[] was unpaired and ordinal scale so should have ideally used Kruskal–Wallis-H would like to bring to the notice that in the original study, the intensity of pain was .

A rawinsonde is a method of upper air observation consisting of an evaluation of the wind speed and direction, temperature, pressure, and relative humidity aloft by means of a balloon-borne radiosonde tracked by a radar or radio direction finder.
