#1. Enriching the historical meteorological information using Romanian newspaper reports
Sorin Cheval, Aritina Haliuc, Bogdan Antonescu, Adrian Tișcovschi, Mihaela Dobre, Florin Tătui, Alexandru Dumitrescu, Ancuta Manea, George Tudorache, Anisoara Irimescu
This study presents the meteorological information spanning the last two decades of the end of 19th century (1880-1900) extracted from three Romanian newspapers (România Liberă, Gazeta de Transilvania and Foaia Poporului). It describes the characteristics of the newspaper data included in the database, it offers and overview of the meteorological network and climate picture at that time in Romania and discuss some of the climatic features that can be extracted from the database as potential information for further reconstructions.

#2. Possible Tectonic Impact of Biosphere
Eugene Bagashov
This paper explores the possibility of existence of ultra-deep biosphere (deeper than 10 km under the surface) and the biogenic earthquake hypothesis -- the idea that subsurface microorganisms might be directly related to earthquake activity. The importance of electroautotrophic type of metabolism is underlined, and the role of telluric currents in this process is explored in some detail, as well as the role of subsurface and atmospheric microorganisms in the global electric circuit. It seems that the existing estimates of the adaptability of biological organisms are inconsistent with empirical evidence, and theoretical concepts predict key biochemical processes to fail long before the onset of the temperatures and pressures, at which microorganisms are actually observed. This implies that life might exist much deeper beneath the surface than previously assumed. At the same time the estimates of energy radiated during the strongest earthquakes are consistent with the biochemical energy available to the subsurface biosphere. Some...
