Abstract: Several EU PAMINA project partners have applied different Sensitivity Analysis (SA) tech-niques to analytical models as well as to a simplified, though representative, PA model. The aims of the exer-cise were to investigate the performance of different techniques in the presence of features such as (lack of) linearity, (lack of) monotony, interactions, etc.; to check the importance of sample size; to compare different options within a given SA technique; to cross-compare the results obtained using different techniques; and to get a better understanding of the rationale behind every available technique and about their capabilities and shortcomings. This paper presents and discusses some results on the tests of global sensitivity analysis per-formed with variance-based sensitivity indicators.
