  • Testing against “normal” with environmental data

    Normal ranges are some fraction of a reference distribution deemed to represent an expected condition (typically 95%). They are frequently used as the basis for generic criteria for monitoring programs designed to test whether a sample is outside of “normal”, as in reference condition approach studies. Normal ranges are also the basis for criteria for more classic environmental effects ...
