Definition of Term

(English) Morphological: A part that juts out. Also: A projection is a potential future evolution of a quantity or set of quantities, often computed with the aid of a model. Projections are distinguished from “predictions” in order to emphasize that projections involve assumptions concerning, for example, future socio-economic and technological developments that may or may not be realized, and are therefore subject to substantial uncertainty. (See also: projecting, process)
(French) Partie qui s'étend en dehors. (See also: projecting, process)
(Portuguese) Parte proeminente. (See also: projecting, process)
