Determination of the reference distribution for LASER wet only (Approach 2)

If the same procedure is followed but this time using only the data obtained by Laser wet (LAS-W), new Bootstrap mean and 95 % confidence limits can be calculated (Table 5). Using the same criteria as in Approach 1 (Section 3.1.1) the outliers are the set B, J, N and U. The outliers are the same as in the first case with the exception of set T. It is not quite clear why set T is an outlier in this case. The Bootstrap mean can then be calculated without using the outliers and this is shown in Table 4. These data could be used to calculate the correction factor as shown above (Section 3.1.1). The resulting size distributions are shown in Appendix D-2.
