  • Description:
    A method of transforming and fitting temperature distribution to the normal curve using the gamma distribution is presented. At the same time, the worth of the programmable calculator ts once again demonstrated. The concept of "base temperature" is introduced in the presentation: a concept which permits the gamma distribution to be used with non-positive as well as positive values. An actual temperature distribution is transformed to normality using steps contained in a program designed to normalize meteorological variates. The resultant normal curve is then used to determine cumulative temperature probabilities.
