Abstract

Models are often discussed in terms of how deterministic or mechanistic they are. These attributes are usually assumed to be independent of the scale at which the model is used, but they are not. Scale also influences the validation and parameterization of models. These issues are discussed with reference to the papers submitted to the conference in the context of the scale diagram of Hoosbeek and Bryant [21].
