    Measurements of H at the high-altitude site of Jungfraujoch, Switzerland are reported upon for the period of August, 2005-November, 2009. The time series consists of measurements that are primarily representative of free tropospheric background conditions. Highest background H mixing ratios were...

    The subject of population cycles is regarded as controversial due to a number of unsettled questions such as whether or not cyclic patterns are governed by the same processes at high and low latitudes in Europe. Recent evidence suggests that the dynamics at high and low latitudes share the...

    This work motivates the need for more flexible structural similarity measures between time- series sequences, which are based on the extraction of important periodic features. Specifically, we present non-parametric methods for accurate periodicity detection and we introduce new periodic...

    The work studies the Chandler component of polar motion, obtained from variations in the Pulkovo latitude over 170 years (1840-2009). To extend the time series of variations in the Pulkovo latitude back into the past until 1840, we used the first Pulkov observations on the basis of the Reynolds...

    We conducted measurements of the five important short-lived organic bromine species in the marine boundary layer (MBL). Measurements were made in the Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes (Sylt Island, North Sea) in June 2009 and in the tropical Western Pacific during the Trans-Brom ship campaign in...
