Anthropogenic emissions of nitrogen (N) to the atmosphere have been strongly increasing during the last century, leading to greater atmospheric N deposition to the oceans. The North Atlantic subtropical gyre (NASTG) is particularly impacted. Here, upwind sources of anthropogenic N from North American and European sources have raised atmospheric N deposition… (More)

Subjective differences in EEG evaluation are demonstrated by means of a seven step scale for grading the unspecific hyperventilation effect in 3263 EEG of children. Intermediate steps of this scale allow to minimize such unavoidable differences.
A total of 21,040 electroencephalograms obtained from 6,834 children constituting the routine patient stock of an electroencephalographic department of a pediatric clinic were checked for "frequency instability". It was possible to observe an age dependence of this characteristic and determine statistical correlations with certain clinical disease units… (More)
