The proposed end-to-end emotion recognition method based on brain connectivity features and domain adaptive residual convolutional network (short for BC-DA-RCNN) is proven to have lower complexity, better generalization ability, and domain robustness that help to lay a solid foundation for the development of high-performance affective brain-computer interface applications.

Modelling the impact of Icelandic volcanic eruptions upon the prehistoric societies and environment of northern and western Britain

Abstract Many studies now address the impact of Icelandic volcanic eruptions upon the societies and environment of Britain and Ireland. It has become apparent that the assumptions of the magnitude of

Volcanic explosions and climatic change: A theoretical assessment

Volcanic explosions introduce silicate dust particles and sulfur gases into the stratosphere. The sulfur gases are slowly converted to sulfuric acid particles. We have performed radiative transfer

Nuclear Winter: Global Consequences of Multple Nuclear Explosions

The potential global atmospheric and climatic consequences of nuclear war are investigated using models previously developed to study the effects of volcanic eruptions, finding long-term exposure to cold, dark, and radioactivity could pose a serious threat to human survivors and to other species.

Recent studies using climate models1–6 have suggested that drastic surface cooling (the “nuclear winter”1) caused by smoke and dust would follow a large-scale nuclear war, with possible drastic

Global atmospheric effects of massive smoke injections from a nuclear war: results from general circulation model simulations

We report three-dimensional calculations of regional and global climatic effects of smoke generated by a large-scale nuclear war. Tropospheric aerosols of absorption optical depth 3, when injected

Nuclear winter not yet established

Talk of some of the consequences of nuclear warfare had better be postponed until the underlying assumptions are better understood.

Frost rings in trees as records of major volcanic eruptions

New data about climatically-effective volcanic eruptions during the past several thousand years may be contained in frost-damage zones in the annual rings of trees. There is good agreement in the

From Santorini to Armageddon

North American tree-ring data confirm that volcanic eruptions can cause climatic change. So would nuclear war, but to a degree not yet calculable.

Stratospheric aerosols and climatic change

Global heat balance calculations imply that stratospheric aerosols, generated by volcanic explosions, have made important contributions to some observed climatic changes but that such aerosols
