  1. Key: P(i,j) means parameter set i and initial conditions j. An asterisk indicates a parameter to which only one of i h , i m was sensitive and change in the other was negligible. Numbers in parentheses indicate the largest (approximate) percent change in magnitude (in either i h or i m ) resulting from a 5% change in corresponding parameter value.
