Probability Distribution Modelling of Microwave Radio Refractivity over Selected Locations in Nigeria
In this study, distribution models were used to model radio refractivity of over some stations across the various climatic zones of Nigeria. Eleven years (January 2004 to December 2014) of Meteorological Data from ERA INTERIM Re-analysis data were used to calculate radio refractivity of each location. It was observed that normal distribution among the probability distribution functions, predicts the peak of the distribution curve and gives the best fit for radio refractivity in all the locations. Weibull distribution strength is built from a small sample sizes. The distribution of the mean value of refractivity in the coastal areas was observed to be weak.
