                         different convective parameterization schemes. The best prediction 
                         estimation is obtained by calculating the appropriated weights for 
                         the ensemble of parameterizations. The weight identification 
                         process is a type of inverse problem: parameter estimation. The 
                         inverse solution is computed by minimizing the functional of 
                         square difference between observations (measured precipitation)
