English term or phrase: smooth earth
estou traduzindo uma patente sobre um método de extrapolação de campo de onda. Tem a ver com geofísica. Pois bem, apareceu esse seguinte termo: "Smooth earth"

A frase é a seguinte:
"A natureza das técnicas de inversão geofísica significa que geralmente elas somente resultam em parametrizações SMOOTH EARTH"
(original: "smooth earth parameterization")

Alguém poderia me ajudar com este termo?

A única pista que tenho (em inglês) é:

"smooth Earth: Idealized surfaces, such as water surfaces or very level terrain, having radio horizons that are not formed by prominent ridges or mountains but are determined solely as a function of antenna height above ground and the effective Earth radius"

Agradeço já qualquer ajuda!
