    Re: Averaging lunars: was Lunars with SNO-T

    Dear Herbert,
    Thank you for the references.
    As I understand from your last messages on
    the topics, these authors only discuss a Least Square algorithm,
    but DO NOT discuss why the simple averaging of the altitudes
    can sometimes be wrong, that is they do not discuss non-linearity
    of the altitude changes?
    
    Did I understand correctly?
