Appendix C. Comparison of posterior and prior probability densities for parameters in the top process model.

Fig. C1. A comparison of estimated posterior probability densities (solid lines) to the specified prior probability densities (dashed lines) for parameters in our top Gompertz process model with extractions (see Eq. 5 and Table 1 of main text). Estimated mean parameter values are denoted by the thin vertical reference lines. Note that the vague prior probability densities in panels 2–4 are nearly flat and span a large portion of the allowable parameter space.
