comment How to create a paragraph header centered and with '(a)' label
To get points after the subparagraph numbers just define: \renewcommand\thesubparagraph{\arabic{subparagraph}.}. For a point after Lysimeters add one.

comment How to make the function identifier ( f(x) ) more dominant?

comment Squeeze superscripts and subscripts around bracketed expressions in display math
@Warrick TeX looks at the box, so AFAIK it can't decide if there is space to narrow the indices. E.g. for [...] the indices made by \subsup are too narrow, but with (...) and {...} they look fine.
