A probability model for Canadian lakes acid rain data / by A.H. El-Shaarawi and A. Naderisamani. : En13-5/89-120E-PDF

"The pH-alkalinity relationship developed by Small and Sutton is fitted to the Canadian lakes alkalinity data, and is it shown that the relationship adequately fits the data when the water colours are less than 30 Hazen units. Further, the model developed by Small and Sutton to predict the regional lake alkalinity distribution is modified to maintain the same distributional form throughout the changes in acid deposition rates. Moreover, a three parameter lognormal distribution is fitted to the Canadian lakes alkalinity data, and the corresponding distribution for pH is derived directly using the pH-alkalinity relationship. However, when the pH-alkalinity relationship does not hold, a distribution is required to fit the pH data. It is shown that a mixture of two normal distributions with four parameters fits the pH-data adequately"--Abstract.
