## log-normal distribution

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.L03614
A distribution function $$F(y)$$, in which the logarithm of a quantity is normally distributed, i.e. $$F(y)=f_{\text{gauss}}(\ln y)$$ where $$f_{\text{gauss}}(x)$$ is a Gaussian distribution. The size distributions of atmospheric aerosols are often described using this distribution function, although the term also applies to gaseous pollutants.
