Using the problem of selecting the best location for a meteorological tower as an example, we show that in multi-objective optimization under constraints, the traditional weighted average approach is often inadequate. We also show that natural invariance requirements lead to a more adequate approach – a generalization of Nash's bargaining solution. Case(More)
One of our main challenges in meteorology and environment research is that in many important remote areas, sensor coverage is sparse, leaving us with numerous blind spots. Placement and maintenance of sensors in these areas are expensive. It is therefore desirable to find out how, within a given budget, we can design a sensor network are important(More)
Time series comes from measurements, and measurements are never absolutely accurate. Traditionally, when we deal with an individual measurement or with a sample of measurement results, we subdivide a measurement error into random and systematic components: systematic error does not change from measurement to measurement which random errors corresponding to(More)
To properly process data, we need to know the accuracy of different data points, i.e., accuracy of different measurement results and expert estimates. Often, this accuracy is not given. For such situations, we describe how this accuracy can be estimated based on the available data. 1 Formulation of the Problem Need to gauge accuracy. To properly process(More)
