Biologic Activity of Higher-frequency Fields and Chemophysical Reactions
The contributions of Reiter (1953) to bio-meteorologic research must not be overlooked. In studies on the problem of weather dependency in man, he explored the basic problems of biometeorologic research using “biometeorologic indicators.” Ever since the fundamental work of De Rudder (1952) and others, changes in air masses and the passages of fronts have been recognized as the meteorologic basis of bioclimatologic research. Reiter (1953) further claims that apparently quite specific atmospheric electric factors should be regarded as biometeorologic indicators and cites statistical studies and reaction-time experiments, notably by Düll (1935), in support of this. It has long been assumed that the higher incidence of deaths and suicides on days with chromospheric eruptions on the sun may have to do with the simultaneous increase in long-wave atmospheric disturbances.
