8, a high surface waviness is present at [t.sub.h] = 0 s.
This is but one example; it would appear that with the right distribution of cloud layers in the sky, variations in brightness or waviness could be reproduced to appear similar to the waviness seen in The Scream.

Evaluating the surface waviness with P[V.sub.20] can eliminate the errors caused by some anomalous points or defects in the test data to a certain extent.
Surface texture (surface roughness waviness, and lay).
We measured the waviness index for IM-3 collagen fibers sampled from near the outer surface of the mantle wall and from near the inner lumen surface (in a zone about 10% of the mantle thickness for each) for both contracted and hyper-inflated mantle tissue (Fig.
Analysis of waviness of formed surfaces showed that there is a possibility to produce moulds and prototypes of high surface quality.
According to the aforesaid analyses, it can be seen that the waviness and unevenness recommended by ISRM are equivalent to the undulation and roughness suggested by Sun [8], respectively.
The effects of wave amplitude and surface waviness on temperature distribution are presented in Figure 3.
Wool comes from sheep--and there are an astonishing array of sheep breeds, each having different length, color, texture and crimp (waviness) to their wool.
The corrugation aspect ratio [gamma] (= 4a/2[lambda]) describes the waviness of the profile, and a flat parallel-plate channel is obtained when the corrugation aspect ratio is zero.
