In Europe, many contemporary forests are not continuous, but were established on former agricultural land in territories of deserted villages. We aimed to explore whether medieval settlement activities of only 60 years irreversibly changed soil properties and whether these changes were reflected by contemporary forest vegetation. The research was performed(More)
Ultrafine particles (UFP, diameter < 100 nm) exposure has already been associated with adverse effects on human health. Spatial distribution of UFP is non-uniform; they concentrate in the vicinity of the source, e.g. traffic, because of their short lifespan. This work investigates spatial distribution of UFP in three areas in the Czech Republic with(More)
This paper attempts to firmly establish the dependence of house price index on foreclosure rates, a prerequisite to substantiating " let-sink " foreclosure policy. In our paper, we first examine a simple linear regression model to show that there are omitted variables in the model, and therefore, more variables other than just foreclosure rates have to be(More)
A number of critical infrastructures, such as gas or oil pipelines operate in a sensitive environment and any damage done to the infrastructure significantly harms the surrounding fauna and flora and poisons water supplies. The infrastructure thus needs to be monitored and any damage or failure has to be detected and reported as quickly as possible. We(More)
The physical properties of indoor particles were measured with an Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS) system (14.6-850 nm), an Aerodynamic Particle Sizer (APS, 0.54-18 μm) and an Hygroscopic Tandem Differential Mobility Analyzer (H-TDMA) in an apartment located in an urban background site in Prague (Czech Republic) from 15 August to 8 September, 2014.(More)
