Generally, forest transpiration models contain model parameters that cannot be measured independently and therefore are tuned to fit the model results to measurements. Only unique parameter estimates with high accuracy can be used for extrapolation in time or space. However, parameter identification problems may occur as a result of the properties of the data set.
