Abandon Statistical Signi fi cance
We discuss problems the null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) paradigm poses for replication and more broadly in the biomedical and social sciences as well as how these problems remainExpand
Connection between the potential wind energy and the windy days
Preliminary wind climate information are required for the selection of the sites of energetic wind measurements. Optimal locations of wind energy projects, where the amount of utilizable wind energyExpand
Levels of cadmium and lead in water, sediments and selected fish species in Mombasa, Kenya
Keywords: heavy metals, cadmium, lead, water, sediment, fish, Kenya coast Flame absorption spectrophotometry was used to investigate the concentration and distribution of cadmium and lead in water,Expand
RAPD technique for taxonomic studies of Pellia epiphylla‐complex (Hepaticae, Metzgeriales)
TLDR
The random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique was used to study the genomic relationships of three liverworts from the genus Pellia and supports the hypothesis of a hybrid origin (alloploid) of the polyploid P. borealis. Expand
Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Dissolved Inorganic Nutrients and Phytoplankton in Mida Creek, Kenya
TLDR
The relatively high nutrient laden groundwater outflow into the creek water, coupled with surface runoff events during wet season, are the two main factors responsible for the elevated nutrients in the creek waters in the absence of river inflow into the Creek. Expand
Bed material texture along gravel bed rivers with confluences
11 Changes in bed material texture are examined along two confluent gravel-bed rivers. The work is distinguished from previous field studies by the scope and resolution of the sampling programme. AExpand
A New Approach to Determine the Coefficient of Skewness and An Alternative Form of Boxplot.
To solve the problems in measuring coefficient of skewness related to extreme value, irregular distance from the middle point and distance between two consecutive numbers, "Rank skewness" a newExpand
AT-SITE RAINFALL FREQUENCY ANALYSIS USING PARTIAL DURATION SERIES AND ANNUAL MAXIMUM SERIES: A CASE STUDY
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that GEV as the best fit statistical distribution for PDS while GLO for AMS while quantiles for the best fitted probability distributions are estimated. Expand
Conditional Density Forecast of Electricity Price Based on Ensemble ELM and Logistic EMOS
TLDR
The proposed hybrid approach effectively quantifies the uncertainty involved in extreme learning machine network by applying an ensemble structure and a logistic distribution-based ensemble model output statistics technique to provide superior full distributional forecasting skill over the existing approaches.
