The Large Aperture Scintillometer (LAS) is an instrument designed for measuring the path-averaged structure parameter of the refractive index of air over horizontal path lengths from 250 m to 4.5 km. Structure parameter measurements obtained with the LAS and standard meteorological observations (air temperature, wind speed and air pressure) can be used to derive the surface sensible heat flux.


After six years of activity, in 1960 the Association started to publish a modest quaternary, of what we are editing its 46th volume. The aim of this journal was twofold: to promote the technical results published in the foreign-language literature, and to broaden the publication possibilities of the members. Now its pages are heralding the news and records of the Association's social and official life, giving forum for members'  opinions, as well as publishing several expert papers per number in Hungarian, with English content.

As elected by the General Meeting for term of three years, the managing editor is Tamás Bodoky. Editorial board: Ms. Zsuzsanna Hegybíró, Kristóf Kakas, László Lenkey, Gábor Pethő, László Szarka, and László Verő.

Here we list the contents and some abstracts in backward order. According to our wish, the journal and this portal will serve the membership and the foreign/domestic reading public in synergetic mood. The printed version (the journal of 'MAGYAR GEOFIZIKA') will be made for traditional readers, while this electronic version (the homepage itself) could produce pages with quick service, with colour (and less expensive for our budget) ... see later the columns of  news  and  coming events .

03.05.2011: Reimann/Birke (eds): Geochemistry of European Bottled Water

In Europe, ca. 1900 "mineral water" brands are officially registered and bottled for drinking. Bottled waters is groundwater and is in large parts of the continent rapidly developing into the main supply of drinking water for the general population.
This book is the first state of the art overview of the chemistry of groundwaters from 40 European countries from Portugal to Russia, measured on 1785 bottled water samples, equivalent to 1189 distinct bottled water brands from 1247 wells in 884 locations plus an additional 500 tap water samples acquired in 2008 by the network of EuroGeoSurveys experts all across Europe.
In contrast to previously available compilations, all chemical data (contained on the enclosed CD) were measured in a single laboratory, under strict quality control with high internal and external reproducibility, affording a single high quality, internally consistent dataset. More than 70 parameters were determined on every sample using state of the art analytical techniques with ultra low detection limits (ICPMS, ICPOES, IC) at a single hydrochemical lab facility.

Because of the wide geographical distribution of the water sources across 40 European countries, the bottled mineral, drinking and tap waters characterized herein may be used for obtaining a first estimate of "ground- water geochemistry" at the scale of the European Continent, previously unavailable in this completeness, quality and coverage.

The data published here allow for the first time to present a comprehensive internally consistent, overview of the natural distribution and variation of the determined chemical elements and additional state parameters of groundwater at the European scale.
Most elements show a very wide range – usually 3 to 4 but up to 7 orders of magnitude – of natural variation of their concentration.

Data are interpreted in terms of their origin, considering hydrochemical parameters, such as the influence of soil, vegetation cover and mixing with deep waters, as well as other factors (bottling effects, leaching from bottles). A chapter is devoted to comparing the results from the bottled waters with those of European tap waters and previously published datasets.

The authors also provide an overview of the legal framework, that any bottled water sold in the European Union must comply with. It provides a comprehensive compilation of current drinking water action levels in European countries, limiting values of the European Drinking/Mineral/Natural Mineral Water directives (1998/83/EC, 2003/40/EC, 2009/54/EC) and legislation in effect in 26 individual European Countries, and for comparison those of the FAO and in effect in the US (EPA, maximum contaminant levels [MCA]).
The accompanying CD contains the extensive data sets, sample data (of 1189 different brands) and two previously published European water chemistry data sets.

03.05.2011: Tsunami Fingerprints Mastronuzzi/Brückner/Vött (Eds.): in different Archives - Sediments, Dynamics and Modelling Approaches

The increase of population density and activity in costal areas worldwide in
the past decades has turned tsunamis into an imminent threat, especially in the case of high magnitude, low frequency (rare) events (e.g. Phillipines 2004).

The great number of casualties incurred seems the result of a general lack of knowledge on how tsunami-waves form, their speed and the lack of risk mitigation and safety measures.

This supplementary volume presents 14 new, peer reviewed contributions to tsunami science which are useful in assessing the tsunami-risk of many coastal areas.

The goal of the papers presented in this volume is to improve the knowledge of (i) tsunami generation and propagation processes, (ii) tsunami-generated sediments and landforms, (iii) historical and geoarchaeological aspects of palaeo-tsunami landfalls, (iv) the role of tsunamis for coastal evolution, (v) tsunami modelling, (vi) tsunami hazard, vulnerability and risk assessment, (vii) tsunami alert network, and (viii) differentiating between tsunami deposits and deposits of extreme storm events.
