Abstract : Values of the parameters associated with the kernel of an approximating function developed to estimate conditional probabilities of recurrence are compared across two similarly derived samples of cloud-amount data. The results tend to suggest the existence of an invariance property related with the parameters with respect to arbitrary categories of cloud-cover amounts. (Author)
