**Description**

This command performs a global sensitivity analysis using the Morris method. The parameter range is partitioned uniformly into a discrete set of values. Starting from a randomly chosen initial set, parameters perturbed one at a time in random order. Multiple random paths *j* in the parameter space can be evaluated for a total of *j*(*n*+1) simulations, based on which elementary effects and variances are calculated, reflecting relative parameter importance as well as linearity and correlation. For details, see Morris [1991].
