A clear bimodality can be observed by exploring the probability density of identified CTS points, and the bimodality is caused by different distributions of the CTS points in the morning and afternoon peaks.
On the other hand, if the model has positive support, the bimodality depends on the choice of parameters, as seen in the Birnbaum-Saunders distribution case.
Bimodality of milk flow was detected when a curve had a flow pattern with 2 increments separated by a clear drop in milk flow for more than 200 g/min within 1 min after the start of milking (Dzidic et al., 2004).

Mix rates of 0.7 and 0.9 were used to represent positive skew and low and high levels of bimodality, respectively.
Also newly emerging are advanced specialty Polyolefins--both polyolefin elastomers (POEs) with bimodality that offers better impact, and polyolefin plastomers (POPs) with molecular design that renders it more elastic.
The origin of this bimodality remains uncertain, although the possibility that male and female ocean quahogs grow at different rates cannot be discounted (Ropes et al.
(2015), who report this bimodality throughout the altitude range covered by the NCAR GV, with a background mode of nearly constant (~20 ppb) values throughout the troposphere and a secondary mode of higher ozone (~35-95 ppb) in layers with lower relative humidity.
[37] found that South Asia High (SAH) shows bimodality in the longitude location and is classified to Tibetan mode (centered at about 90[degrees]E) and Iranian mode (centered at about 60[degrees]E).
