Analyses of Ps and Sp receiver functions from datasets Asian Fit Oakley Coffee Lens Brown Frame collected by permanent and temporary seismic stations, image a seismic discontinuity, due to a negative
velocity contrast across the entire Eastern Alps. The receiver functions show the presence of the discontinuity within the upper mantle with a resolution of tens of kilometers laterally. It is deeper (100–130 km) below the central portion of the Eastern Alps, and shallower (70–80 km) towards the Pannonian Basin and in the Central Alps.

Comparison with previous studies renders it likely that the observed discontinuity coincides with the lithosphere–asthenosphere boundary (LAB) east of 15°E longitude, while it could be associated with a low velocity zone west of 15°E.
Carotenoids are pigments which play a major role in the protection of plants against photooxidative processes. They are efficient antioxidants scavenging singlet molecular oxygen and peroxyl radicals. In the human organism, carotenoids are part of the antioxidant defense system. They interact synergistically with other antioxidants; mixtures of carotenoids are more effective than single compounds. According to their structure most carotenoids exhibit absorption maxima at around 450 nm. Filtering of blue light has been proposed as a mechanism protecting the macula lutea against photooxidative damage. There is increasing evidence from human studies that carotenoids protect the skin against photooxidative damage.
