I conclude, looking to the future, that for terrestrial productions a large continental area, which will probably undergo many oscillations of level, and which consequently will exist for long periods in a broken condition, will be the most favourable for the production of many new forms of life, likely to endure long and to spread widely.
At Punta Gorda, in Banda Oriental, I found an alternation of the Pampaean estuary deposit, with a limestone containing some of the same extinct sea-shells; and this shows either a change in the former currents, or more probably an oscillation of level in the bottom of the ancient estuary.
Kajita outlined how he had discovered Neutrino Oscillations, Atmospheric Neutrino Deficit and the importance of small Neutrino Mass.
NASA studies helped scientists observe how the pulses or oscillations in solar flares affect Earth's atmosphere.

Time-dependent flows due to non-torsional oscillations of eccentric disks rotating with the same angular velocity in the case of a Newtonian fluid have also received attention.
Nevertheless, the brain remains highly active, showing electrical activity in the form of sharp-wave ripples in the hippocampus (a small region of the brain that forms part of the limbic system) and large-amplitude slow oscillations in the cortex (the outer layer of the cerebrum), reflecting alternating periods of active and silent states of cortical neurons during deep sleep.
Many companies that work with Hydraulic cranes have difficulties dealing with load lifting due to oscillations and swinging of load, which can lead to safety problems.
The study, based on neural dynamical analysis, demonstrated that rhythmic oscillations corresponding to the movement frequency also occur during skilled reaching movements [16] as rhythmic movements [16-19].
These oscillations are rhythmic patterns of electrical activity generated by nerve cells, or neurons, linked within the brain s circuitry.
Background: To study the characters of high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) in the seizure onset zones (SOZ) and the nonseizure onset zones (NSOZ) in the electrocorticography (ECoG) of patients with neocortical epilepsy.
During the all-long recording as a whole, unpredictable spontaneous high-frequency (period length: T < 24 h) oscillations were observed occasionally.
