The levels of 14 brominated diphenyl ether (BDE)-congeners in sediment cores from three locations in Western Europe have been determined by GC/MS (negative chemical ionization mode). Sediments from the Drammenfjord (Norway), the western Wadden Sea (The Netherlands), and the freshwater Lake Woserin (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany) showed a time-dependent(More)
The minimum inhibitory concentrations of metronidazole and clarithromycin were determined for 780Helicobacter pylori strains collected in 1994 and 1995 from three different regions in The Netherlands. The overall prevalence of primary metronidazole resistance was 17%, with resistance found more frequently in women (24%) than in men (13%). There was no(More)
Within the Constrained Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (CMSSM) it is possible to predict the low energy gauge couplings and masses of the 3. generation particles from a few parameters at the GUT scale. In addition the MSSM predicts electroweak symmetry breaking due to large radiative corrections from Yukawa couplings, thus relating the Z boson mass to(More)
[1] For ocean-climate research, carbonates are extracted from large organic-rich bulk sediments for specific geochemical analyses. This is conventionally achieved by time-consuming dry oxidation or nonoxidative preprocessing. To significantly shorten sample preparation time we designed and evaluated a rapid technique that uses sequential wet oxidization of(More)

Although high energy shelves are usually ignored in environmental studies, the fine fractions of sandy deposits and the restricted areas of silty clayey deposits record contaminant loading history and can represent important components for understanding processes and fluxes in a system perspective. The main aim of this work is identify trends in historical(More)
A box-core 3576 (PO287-26-1B) collected from the Tagus Prodelta in 2002 was analysed for organic carbon, Pb, Ra, major (Al, Fe, Ca, Ti, Mg and Mn) and trace elements (Ba, Hg, Cr, Cu, Li, Ni, Pb, Sb, Sn, Sr, and Zn). Maximum concentrations of contaminants in Pb-dated samples were reached in the decades between 1960 and 1980, followed by a slightly decrease(More)
