Note that count data can be modelled for certain distributions using continuous distributions; for example, count data that follows a Poisson distribution and has a high mean can be modelled using a normal distribution.
Tout au long du large marocain, en particulier dans les zones du sud, a proximite de Dakhla ou la ressource est assez abondante, les RSW (refroidissment sea water) sillonnent l'ocean avec leurs engins devastateurs et raflent toutes les especes de poisson.

Acquisition of astronomical images in low photon count region is a dominant source of Poisson noise.
Consequently, they can be analyzed from some standard and nonstandard Poisson geometry points of view [4].
Also, in [14], an investigation was made by the aid of strength of materials and elasticity approach, to derive explicit expressions for longitudinal, transverse, and shear moduli along with longitudinal and transverse Poisson's ratio using the concept of boundary interphase between fiber and matrix, in the framework of a three-phase modified form of Hashin-Rosen cylinder assemblage model that was presented in [2].
For its limited offering for Valentine's Day, French perfumer Diptyque has tapped the three artists behind Antoinette Poisson, the Parisian company that revived domino paper, to illustrate the Rosa Mundi scent on paper.
Material's Poisson's ratio is defined as the lateral contraction strain divided by the longitudinal extension strain.
