The data from the SMPS measurements were curve fitted using a commercial software package that assumed a log-normal distribution and determined the mean particle size and geometric standard deviation.

The easily obtainable variables were grouped as (1) particle size distribution, bulk density, and gypsum content; and (2) bulk density, gypsum content, geometric mean, and geometric standard deviation of the particle diameter.
8 Wash pesticide application clothes Yes No Abbreviations: GM, geometric mean; GSD, geometric standard deviation.
Because the data were log normally distributed, geometric mean (GM) and geometric standard deviation (GSD)--rather than arithmetic mean and standard deviation--were used to describe central tendencies and variability.
The errors in the Japanese dose estimates are thought to be log-normal with a geometric standard deviation of about 30% (Jablon 1971); the dosimetric errors in the radiation workers are of the same order (Kite and Britcher 1996).
