Progress in urban climate science is severely restricted by the lack of useful information that describes aspects of the form and function of cities at a detailed spatial resolution. To overcome this shortcoming we are initiating an international effort to develop the World Urban Database and Access Portal Tools (WUDAPT) to gather and disseminate this(More)
Aim of the study was the translation of three frequently used stroke scales ("National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale" NIHSS, "European Stroke Scale" ESS and "Rankin Scale") into German and the analysis of the interrater reliability of the respective German versions. The translation process followed the protocol of the Medical Outcomes Trust (Boston) and(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the micromotion under physiological loading of various acetabular components with and without screws, to determine the most suitable anchoring, cup design and optimal surface structure. Six acetabular components with varying cup geometry and surface configuration were implanted with a 2 mm press-fit into(More)
Technical development during the last two decades has brought new potential and new applications for mobile measurements. In this paper, we present six case studies where mobile measurement devices were used to acquire data for meteorological and climatological research. Three case studies deal with ground­ based mobile measurements – on buses for urban(More)
The heterogeneity of precipitation rates in high mountain regions is not sufficiently captured by state of the art climate reanalysis products due to their limited spatial resolution. Thus there exists a large gap between the available data sets and the demands of climate impact studies. The presented approach aims to generate spatially high 5 resolution(More)
A general understanding of grazing effects on plant diversity in drylands is still missing, despite an extensive theoretical background. Cross-biome syntheses are hindered by the fact that the outcomes of disturbance studies are strongly affected by the choice of diversity measures, and the spatial and temporal scales of measurements. The aim of this study(More)
Mass elevation and lee effects markedly influence snow lines and tree lines in high mountain systems. However, their impact on other phenomena or groups of organisms has not yet been quantified. Here we quantitatively studied their influence in the Himalaya-Tibet orogen on the distribution of ground beetles as model organisms, specifically whether the(More)
As a mountainous country, Nepal is most susceptible to precipitation extremes and related hazards, including severe floods, landslides and droughts that cause huge losses of life and property, impact the Himalayan environment, and hinder the socioeconomic development of the country. Given that the countrywide assessment of such extremes is still lacking, we(More)
