APPL
TLDR
A prototype probability package named APPL (A Probability Programming Language) is presented that can be used to manipulate random variables and examples illustrate its use.
Radar polarimetry: analysis tools and applications
The authors have developed several techniques to analyze polarimetric radar data from the NASA/JPL airborne SAR for Earth science applications. The techniques determine the heterogeneity of
Survival Distributions Satisfying Benford's Law
Abstract Hill stated that “An interesting open problem is to determine which common distributions (or mixtures thereof) satisfy Benford's law …”. This article quantifies compliance with Benford's law
Microwave dielectric properties of dry rocks
The use of a combination of several measurement techniques to investigate the dielectric properties of 80 rock samples in the microwave region is discussed. The real part of the relative dielectric
The Distribution of Order Statistics for Discrete Random Variables with Applications to Bootstrapping
TLDR
The part of the order-statistic algorithm for sampling with replacement from a finite sample can be used to perform exact bootstrapping analysis in certain applications, eliminating the need for replication in the analysis of a data set.
Estimates of surface roughness derived from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data
TLDR
Synthetic aperture radar data over the Cima volcanic field in the Mojave Desert of California are quantitatively connected with microtopography through inversion of a radar backscatter model, and changes in surface roughness inferred from the derivedmicrotopography are modeled and found to be consistent with aeolian mantling as surfaces age.

Microwave dielectric spectrum of rocks
A combination of several measurement techniques was used to investigate the dielectric properties of 80 rock samples in the microwave region. The real part of the dielectric constant, epsilon', was
