This study investigates the potential of using changes of interannual luminescence intensity in hermatypic Montastraea coral skeletons in the northeastern Caribbean as a proxy of precipitation and (trade) wind speed. In order to find wavelength pairs that are well suited to detect variations in the concentration of incorporated terrestrial humic substances(More)
Hurricane activity in the North Atlantic Ocean has increased significantly since 1995 (refs 1, 2). This trend has been attributed to both anthropogenically induced climate change and natural variability, but the primary cause remains uncertain. Changes in the frequency and intensity of hurricanes in the past can provide insights into the factors that(More)
The number of amyloidogenic transthyretin (TTR) mutations described in the literature is more than 100. However, for several mutations, the phenotype has been described in a few individuals only; thus, the knowledge of the clinical course and the outcome after therapeutical interventions such as liver transplantation is limited. We describe the phenotype(More)
[1] We used Sr/Ca and stable isotope data from well dated and preserved corals from the northeastern Caribbean to determine the seasonal environmental conditions for four continuous years during the Eemian, the last time the Earth was in a prolonged warm phase. We determined that the seasonal range in SST during the Eemian was 25°–30° C. This is $1–2°(More)
Angular distributions for 1n and 2n transfer are reported for the 6He+65Cu system at E_{lab}=22.6 MeV. For the first time, triple coincidences between alpha particles, neutrons, and characteristic gamma rays from the targetlike residues were used to separate the contributions arising from 1n and 2n transfer. The differential cross sections for these(More)
A-decaying high-spin isomer in 96 Cd, with a half-life T 1=2 ¼ 0:29 þ0:11 À0:10 s, has been established in a stopped beam rare isotope spectroscopic investigations at GSI (RISING) experiment. The nuclei were produced using the fragmentation of a primary beam of 124 Xe on a 9 Be target. From the half-life and the observed decays in the daughter nucleus, 96(More)
