Examples of changing trajectories w m (α q , β r ,t). Black lines a reference trajectory w m (α,β,t). This produced by raw data and nonlinear regression as an analysis method. For ∆α q . ∆β r  > 0, shifting trajectories w m (α q , β r ,t) overestimate or underestimate w m (α,β,t) projections (see red or blue lines in panel a)). The case ∆α q ∙∆β r  < 0, leads to relative smaller deviations between w m (α q , β r ,t) and w m (α,β,t) (see red and blue lines in panel b))
