  1. The values are the shape a and the inverse-scale b of the gamma priors for τs and τz (the precisions of the spatially structure effect f(si) and the non-linear effect of elevation f(zi)), as well as the upper limit of the marginal standard deviation of the prior models U. For scaled models, a and b define U [36]. The prior value used for the rest of the results is shown in bold
