Schematic representation of the bulk-solvent models described in the text. (a) No bulk-solvent correction, i.e. solvent density set to zero. (b) Constant level of solvent outside the macromolecule and ordered water envelope. Here, sharp edge effects remain. (c) The model as in (b), but smoothed at the edge of a macromolecule, equivalent to the application of a B value to the solvent model.
