  1. The data are the mean ± standard deviation; n = number of measured values analyzed per individual. For pulse repetition times, each pulse train was measured 10 times and then averaged. CV = coefficient of variance (i.e., standard deviation/mean (rounded)); localities (N9-N33) in accordance with [31]).
