How to use the word: 'Seemingly'

Dear English teachers and English learners of this forum,

Could you please tell me how to use the word: seemingly. I mean that, in one case, someone observed the relationship between 2 values in the field. It has a scientific background, but the problem is only one time observed he/she can not say something exactly. For scientific studies, all of observation need to repeat many times to make sure and confirm. How to use the word that means it might exist but needs more studies to confirm? Does the word, seemingly, can be used for this case or other word should be better?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
