  1. The nlinfit routine calculates a sum of square difference between data points and model predictions. Before entering into this routine the data was scaled a) to correct for different units of pools data and flux data and b) to indicate the relative importance of each data point. This adjustment is specific for the type of data used. Data and model predictions were divided by the scaling factors shown in this table.
