PURPOSE The experiment was performed to prove that exposure to a relatively weak extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic field retards tadpoles' development. METHODS Two cohorts of Xenopus laevis laevis (Daudin) tadpoles were exposed during their immature period ( approximately 60 days) to a 50 Hz magnetic field of 63.9 < or = B < or = 76.4 microT rms(More)
Although Smart Grids may represent the solution to the limits of nowadays Power Grid, the turnover may not occur in the next future yet due the complex nature of energy distribution. Thus, as a more short term effort, to improve the responsiveness of the energy demand to the power grid load, more and more energy providers apply dynamic pricing schemes for(More)
CHRIS imagery of the Frascati vineyards surrounding ESRIN is being applied to an ambitious European Commission project called Bacchus. It aims to apply Earth Observation (EO) to inventory vineyards and optimise the management of wine production. ERS-Envisat radar imagery and very-high resolution QuickBird images are already being used to survey the(More)
In three repeated experiments with three different litters of Xenopus laevis (Daudin) tadpoles, three cohorts were reared in an aquarium under the "saw-tooth" magnetic field produced by a television set. Their maturation times are compared with those of three corresponding control cohorts grown in an unexposed aquarium. In the exposed aquarium, the magnetic(More)
