Alexander Albrecht (1885–1958) ranks among the most significant composers and performers in the musical life of Bratislava (in its entire historical context) and, following the enormous social and political changes after 1918, he made a

Summary

The chapel of the Franciscan Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Bratislava (Pozsony, Pressburg) was finished probably in autumn or at the end of the year 1709. In January 1710 there was a festive mass celebrated by the Esztergom Archbishop in the presence of the Palatine Prince Paul Esterházy, the Convent's guardian Ludovicus Kirkay and the noblemen who took part in the Hungarian Diet. Until recently, out of the known archive sources, only one donator of the Bratislava Loretto Chapel was concretely known – the already mentioned Palatine Paul Esterházy. However, last year an unknown source was identified, enlightening the background of the foundation of this sight. It is the Heraldic Codex from 1710 with an artistic design of extraordinary quality. The Codex, with 67 full-page paintings of coats of arms, originated in Bratislava on the initiative of the guardian of a Franciscan Convent, Ludovicus Kirkay. Its form reminds of the materials of religious fraternities. Loretto chapels were commonly founded by lay fraternity or as a devotional chapel after a plaque. This text tries to answer the question if there was such a religious organisation here and what the original intention of the project initiators was.

Abstract  

The radiation situation in Bratislava following the Chernobyl accident is discussed. Measurement results of - and -radioactivity of aerosols are presented. The evolution of the activity ratios in air for some radionuclides is discussed. Their distribution indicates different transport and deposition properties for the volatile and nonvolatile fission products. The results are compared with long-term measurements of anthropogenic radionuclides released to the atmosphere by nuclear bomb tests.

Abstract  

Near-surface air concentrations of7Be and its deposition rates were measured in the atmosphere in Bratislava from 1977 to 1994. Late spring and summer maxima were observed in the near-surface air concentrations on an annual basis. Using measured deposition rates and the calculated average tropospheric content of7Be atoms, their mean tropospheric residence time (27–48 days) was determined. An anticorrelation between the measured7Be concentration and the sunspot number with correlation factor of 0.55 was observed.

Abstract  

The total -radioactivity of dry, wet and cumulative fallout and the radioactivity of cow milk was measured in Bratislava in the first month after the Chernobyl accident. The obtained results are in good agreement with the results of the monitoring net in Slovakia.

Abstract  

The contamination of leaves of some ornamental and fruit-tree plants (18 species), herbs (6) and early leafy vegetable (2) were assessed in the region of Bratislava and its vicinity through the first months after the Chernobyl accident. The levels of contamination showed local and temporal dependence. In October compared to its levels five months earlier, foliar contamination showed a relative 12- to 200-fold decrease of radioactivity. The effective half-life of the mixture of fission products in cumulative fallout on leaves of vegetation changed depending on time after the accident from 4 days (on day 10) to 150 days (after 2 months). The soluble fraction of radioactive contaminants on plant foliage ranged from 0.12 to 0.64.

Abstract  

Radionuclide X-ray fluorescence method with Si/Li semiconductor detector and238Pu exciting source was used for the determination of Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn in soil samples from various localities near the D-61 Bratislava-Trnava highway (SFR).

Abstract  

Radiometric X-ray fluorescence analysis was used for the determination of Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn and Pb in wastewater and sludges from three wastewater treatment plants in Bratislava (SR). Metals were determined in wastewaters after preconcentration by 8-hydroxyquinoline and in sludges by drying and pressing to pellets.238Pu and109Cd was used for excitation of fluorescence radiation.
