It is based on the combination of a re-parametrization of a general family of distributions (known as the EGNB2 distribution) and the so-called quadratic rank transmutation map defined with the exponential distribution as baseline. We explore some mathematical properties of this distribution including the hazard rate function, moments, the moment generating function, the quantile function, various entropy measures and (reversed) residual life functions. A statistical study investigates estimation of the parameters using the method of maximum likelihood. The distribution along with other existing distributions are fitted to two environmental data sets and its superior performance is assessed by using some goodness-of-fit tests. As a result, some environmental measures associated with these data are obtained such as the return level and mean deviation about this level.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Statistics, Optimization & Information Computing}, author={Chesneau, Christophe and Bakouch, Hassan S and Khan, Muhammad Nauman}, year={2020}, month={Feb.}, pages={36-53} }
