standardising smoothing function

  • Mathematical representation of physiological growth (caused by bio-ecological factors such as tree age and stand dynamics), expressed as a function of time and fitted to measurements of a tree-ring parameter such as ring width. Typical forms are exponential or linear curves, (high-order) polynomials, splines, filters and Hughershoff functions.
