[Why I think stats and maths are cool] Working on mosquito dispersal problem today. Fitting 2D directional probability density functions to counts of mosquitoes found in random C02 traps with a new modelling approach, mosquitoes coming in from multiple sources all around. Best fitting models all found strong directional preference in one certain direction. We ring-up Mosquito expect who conducted field work, turns out the direction our models predict is equal to the wind direction during sampling -> I'm stunned that I just calculated the wind direction almost perfectly from counts of mosquitoes in C02 traps.
