Step C7:  Viewing HPD regions for individual parameters II

The 68% HPD region for alpha 2 is given by BCal as 194-13 cal BP.   Again we recommend rounding such results to the nearest ten years and reporting 200-10 cal BP.  Note that at 68% we get a shorter time interval than at 95%.  We have removed from the interval some dates that are less likely to be the true calendar date for alpha 2.   There is, however, a 32% chance that the true date lies outside this range!

Now that we have looked at viewing results for individual parameters, it is time to look at the results for the time elapsed between parameters.  We should select the "Back" button twice to return to the result type selection page.
