    f. For a spherical model, the distance at which the model reaches its maximum value, or sill. For the exponential and gaussian models, which approach the sill asymptomatically, it means the "practical" or "effective" range, where the function reaches approximately 95% of the maximum. The nugget model effectively has a sill with a range of zero: the linear model uses "sill/range" merely to define the slope.
