Abstract

We discuss some environmental applications of methodologies based on the Birnbaum-Saunders model, which is an asymmetrical statistical distribution that is being widely considered to describe data collected in earth sciences.We present a formal justification, by means of the proportionate effect law, to use the Birnbaum- Saunders model as a useful distribution for environmental and regional variables. The methodologies discussed in this work include exceedance probabilities, X-bar control charts, np control charts, and spatial models. Applications with real-world environmental data sets are carried out for each discussed methodology.
