A general distributional model for lake alkalinity with applications to Canadian data / by A.H. ElShaarawi and A. Naderisamani.: En13-5/90-55E-PDF
"A class of probability models is proposed for making inferences about the regional distribution of lake Alkalinity. This class includes the three-parameter lognormal distribution which is frequently used as a regional model for lake chemistry. The adequacy of the lognormal distribution can be assessed by testing the significance of a single parameter in the proposed model. It is shown that the three-parameter lognormal distribution does not fit the majority of data sets from Eastern Canada. Furthermore, the pH-alkalinity relationship developed by Small and Sutton is used to yield a class of probability models representing the derived distributions for pH"--Abstract.
