Many researchers claim that crosscutting concerns, which emerge in early software development stages, are harmful to software stability. On the other hand, there is a lack of effective metrics that allow software developers to understand and predict the characteristics of " early " crosscutting concerns that lead to software instabilities. In general,… (More)
Crosscutting is usually described in terms of scattering and tangling. However, the distinction between these concepts is vague, which could lead to ambiguous statements. Sometimes, precise definitions are required, e.g. for the formal identification of crosscutting concerns. We propose a conceptual framework for formalizing these concepts based on a… (More)
 Previous attempts to establish global mass balances for polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDD/Fs) have focused on the terrestrial sink, thereby neglecting deposition to the oceans and atmospheric losses. In this study, the atmospheric sink of polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDD/Fs) was calculated on the basis of their presence in soils. OH… (More)
