1. Introduction Le projet FRISK (Federal Risk Inventory, Survey and Knowledge building) est une recherche commanditée par le Centre Gouvernemental de Coordination et de Crise (CGCCR) ou centre de crise ci-après. Cette recherche s’inscrit dans une démarche constructive et prospective. Ses objectifs sont multiples et ambitieux : - établir une méthodologie permettant de reproduire la démarche ; - inventorier de manière exhaustive les dangers et risques auxquels la société actuelle est exposée ; - évaluer la fréquence de ces menaces ; - ainsi que leurs conséquences et impacts sur la population belge ; - classer (regrouper en famille et donner une priorité) aux risques ; - consulter les membres et les partenaires du CGCCR pour connaître leur évaluation ; - analyser les différentes approches ; - prendre en compte la perception de la population ; - s’inspirer d’études et de travaux similaires, belges et internationaux ; - inscrire cette étude dans le cadre de la définition d’une situation de crise conformément aux AR du 18 avril 1988 (création du CGCCR) et du 31 janvier 2003 (définition phase 4).

The association of acanthosis nigricans, skin tags, diabetes mellitus due to insulin resistance, and obesity in adolescents and young adults represents a well defined syndrome. Hyperandrogenism may also be present. The endocrine origin of this condition is beyond doubt. Insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1, and their receptors on keratinocytes are obviously involved in the complex regulations leading to the peculiar epidermal hyperplasia. This condition is unrelated to other types of acanthosis nigricans, including the congenital and the paraneoplastic types.Control of obesity contributes largely to reverse the whole process, essentially by reducing both insulin resistance and compensatory hyperinsulinemia. Several drugs including metformin, octreotide, retinoids and topical colecalciferol (vitamin D(3)) analogs are also beneficial in clearing acanthosis nigricans. [less ▲]

In the last years, Europe was subject to catastrophic inundations. At the same time, computer's capacity are increasing such as bidimensional simulations can be applied to real cases. Two compementary theoretical and numerical models are presented and discussed in the present paper: the diffusive approximation and the complete shallow-water approach. An original refinement of meshes is also presented to increase the convergence speed to a steady solution. Numerous comparisons between models and methods of resolution are described. Finally, an example of determination of the flood extension on a natural river is illustrated. [less ▲]

Increased hair loss followed, in some instances by an acute focal or total alopecia, can develop in some cancer patients. The surgical stress or procedure, radiotherapy and some chemotherapy regimens can be responsible for these disturbing events. The alopecia is transient or permanent according to its origin. Diverse diagnostic and prognostic methods are available for assessing alopecias. The trichogram is a rewarding one. [less ▲]

Satellite images are very useful for many applications in oceanography and other environmental sciences. They offer a great coverage both in time and space, not attained by in situ measurements. Clouds are responsible for missing data on images provided by receptors working in the visible and IR range receptors. In some seasons the cloud coverage can reach an important percentage. Many data analysis techniques do not need a total coverage, although it is always desirable. Some applications, such as Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) analysis, or wavelet decomposition need a complete set of data, and a technique for recovering these missing data is indispensable. In this work we present DINEOF (Data INterpolating Empirical Orthogonal Functions), a method for the reconstruction of satellite data, based on an EOF decomposition. DINEOF reconstructs the missing data from an optimal set of EOFs. The optimal number of EOFs is determined by cross-validation. This method has shown to obtain robust results. DINEOF has been applied to a series of 105 AVHRR SST images of the Adriatic Sea, in a period ranging from May to October 1995. The mean cloud coverage of this data set is 52%. The error obtained by the cross-validation is of 0.6°C, and a total of 10 EOFs were necessary to reconstruct the data. A comparison with in situ data obtained form the MEDAR/Medatlas database is made. A total of 452 stations are examined. The RMS error between MEDAR/Medatlas and the reconstructed data is of 0.95°C. The error between MEDAR/Medatlas data and the points that are not missing in the Adriatic data set is of 0.67°C, which can be considered as the inherent error between the in situ and remote sensed data sets.
