ARCHIVE reproduction don't eliminate the general public in industrialized nations exhibits a mounting drawback approximately organic results of electric and magnetic fields. for that reason, experimental stories in this topic are being released in expanding numbers through the global. Prof. H. L. Konig, of the Technical college of Munich, West Germany, a number one specialist and pioneer during this box, has written an authoritative textual content in a lucid sort which makes the cloth additionally obtainable to put readers. The ebook describes the results of average in addition to synthetic electromagnetic energies masking the en tire measurable frequency variety from the top frequencies, x-rays, via microwaves, radio waves, and eventually super low frequency (ELF) waves. Cit ing the facts from medical experiences in numerous international locations, Konig additionally appraises the biologic results of microwaves and excessive stress strength traces, that have turn into debatable concerns lately. different contributions to the booklet were made through Prof. Albert P. Krueger, collage of California, Berkeley, on air ionization results and by means of the mete orologist Walter Sonning on biometeorology, documenting the effect of atmo spheric electric currents on well-being and illness. furthermore, the past due Dr. Siegnot Lang, a former coworker of Dr. Konig, has contributed to this book.

The environmental box is deep and large. within the flood of knowledge, how can humans comprehend the underlying motives of what they pay attention in regards to the atmosphere from newspapers and tv? This e-book was once initially released in jap, with the purpose of offering simple information regarding the guidelines and techniques to work out and comprehend the interconnection among nature and human actions from a scientific standpoint.
In the course of its life the Ecosciences Panel of the North Atlantic Treaty service provider used to be continually eager about (i) the communic ation hole among the turbines of ecological/environmental infor mation and people who use it and (ii) the slender interpretation of 'environmental' which too usually used to be taken as being synonymous with toxins.
Woodland ecosystems are characterised by means of a gradual swap of their constitution of functionality. average advancements are an increasing number of notably disturbed via human effect. pollution ends up in soil acidification, swap in nutrient finances and to a reducing energy of the bushes. woodland administration can hinder usual succession and sometimes results in much less sturdy forests.
This new version of a vintage textual content has now been greatly up-to-date to incorporate the most recent advancements in hazard research and water caliber evaluate and administration. It takes under consideration the function of ecological water caliber in built-in nearby and transboundary water assets administration, in line with the newest UNESCO programmes and the recent EU-Water Framework Directive.

In the upper troposphere and stratosphere, of course, cosmic radiation is the sole ionizing agency. Intermediate and large ions contribute little to the conductivity of the air. However, they do carry space charges which drift with the wind and cause time variations in the field intensity at a given location. Due to the electric conductivity of the air, both space charges and charged solid or liquid surfaces are discharged with half-value times of lOO-lOOO s. The concentration and mobility of the small ions, and therefore the electric conductivity of the air, increase with altitude.

These substunces in tum trigger the release of radioactive radium, thorium and actinium emanations, both by direct irradiation (alpha, beta, and gamma rays) and by ionization. Direct measurements have shown a mean ionization rate near the ground of 2-10 ion pairs/cm3s, which is consistent with measurements of the content of radioactive elements in the upper ground layer. The ionization rate may be more than 20 times the normal value in some places, because of a high radium content in the ground.
