Abstract

The aim here is to summarize a set of sound procedures for establishing what is referred to below as a “good” model. The text is based on earlier reports by the author on the subject, in particular McClimans et al. (1992) and Røed (1993). For more extensive reading on the subject, the reader is referred to the in-depth analysis documented in the GESAMP report (GESAMP 1991), or the review Lynch and Davies 1995.
