The AA. aim to develop a methodology that accurately predicts surface temperature in mountain ecosystems. Their approach, with consideration of influences of topography and variable atmospheric conditions on energy from insolation, and with appropriate time lags, greatly improves the ability to calculate spatially distributed temperature regimes in complex terrain. The comparison between modeled temperature and observed temperature in mountain areas at Yellowstone National Park shows the mean average errors range
