PURPOSE To record the spectral transmittance curves of various ultraviolet (UV) and blue-light-filtering intraocular lenses (IOLs), evaluate their UV and blue-light-radiation- absorption capacities, and compare them with those of the natural crystalline lens. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Duisburg-Essen University, Essen, Germany. METHODS Eight(More)
Nutrient retention due to sedimentation in running waters has been little studied. The knowledge about the processes of self-purification is important for the management of rivers. The principal aim of our investigations was to quantify nutrient retention by sedimentation within and adjacent to stands of submerged macrophytes. In addition, we examined the(More)
This study was designed to quantify and model the effects of macrophytes on phosphorus retention in a lowland river. The seasonal course of phosphorus retention was calculated from the measured difference in TP between beginning and end of a 30-km river course and the estimated lateral P input. The coverage of submersed macrophytes was mapped and coincided(More)
