The aim of the paper is to analyse how office markets are in interaction with the evolutions in the field of territory and economy. The first part of the paper analyses the data available to study the office stocks. Afterwards, we present an urban hierarchy based on the office equipment, in relation with the process of metropolization and its location consequences. The last part of the paper shows that the office function is also concerned with the process of periurbanization. [less ▲]

The design of a landscape’s virtual tour starting from an interactive panoramic image (hyperlandscape) can become a way to develop and express a glance and a speech on the landscape integrating certain principles of the complex thought. In complement of discovery activities and field works appropriate to this objective, the design of a virtual structure of the space on combinative mode would put into our mind some dynamic mental maps for organizing our thoughts. These mental maps could constitute metaphors which would be used as support for structuring our perceptions and thought starting from a systemic groundwork. [less ▲]

The tsunami that affected the Indian ocean’s rims on December 26, 2004 claimed close to 300 000 deaths, essentially on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, which suffered overwhelming devastation. This article is focused on three specific aspects of the disaster. On one side, we analyse the tribune offered to the tsunami catastrophe by the press in Le Soir and Le Monde. On the other side, we present an analysis of the distribution of insured losses from the latest data made available by the two largest reinsurance world companies, Swiss Re and Munich Re. Finally, we try to compare the estimated death toll with available demographic data for the province of Aceh. Here we show that the place given to the tsunami is enormous when compared to other natural tragedies, and we try to explain what motivated such a coverage. In addition, the analysis of insured losses highlights the North-South differences as local victims (99 %) concentrate less than 10 % of the losses supported by insurers. For what regards the death toll, we conclude that the number of about 235 000 for northern Indonesia is a broad estimation and that a realistic approach is impossible since no census was made in this region over the last three decades.

Urban recycling and public-private partnership : the English « gap funding » and the Walloon « revitalisation urbaine » The English « gap funding » and the Walloon « revitalisation urbaine » are both, mechanisms of public-private partnership aiming at increasing the financial profitability of urban recycling property development. The objective of their analysis is to understand why, compared with the situation in Wallonia, where the urban regeneration policy has not yet been emblematically successful, the gap funding mechanism has actually led to the renewal of several traditional urban areas. From this comparative investigation, which perfectly illustrates how partnerships are dependent of both, cultural and political traditions, we state that the English success is related with : political choices in favour of the concentration of subsidies within areas where the potential demand is strong, with the transparency of the private financial statements of account and also with a tradition of flexible planning, which is particularly in favour of the setting-up of partnership networks.

It is now irrefutable that air pollution caused by large amounts of Total Suspended Particulates (TSP) has numerous undesired consequences on human health. Air quality deterioration in the US and in Europe caused by high concentration of African dust is seen as a major health threat although most of these countries are very distant from the Sahara. Surprisingly, no estimates of TSP levels near the Saharan dust source are available. Based on horizontal visibility measurements reduced by dust in the air, TSP levels are estimated at Niamey-Aéroport (Niger) by using different relations found in the literature. It appears that excessive TSP concentration levels are very important in magnitude and frequency. These very high TSP levels represent a tremendous public health threat that should be absolutely taken into consideration by national and international decision makers. [less ▲]

The Auteur research geoindicators indicating the presence of a Roman road. A geo-indicator is a localised item that accompanies other item less apprehensible. Eight indicators are discussed (straightness, elevated road, position on the ridge, administrative border, chapel, parcelling, other roman traces, toponym). These geoindicators permit searching Roman road but also determine the more characteristic sectors. [less ▲]

This article presents the evaluation of the crop water stress in 2003 using the Belgian Crop Growth Monitoring System (B-CGMS). The indicator used is the Relative Soil Moisture Index (RSMI), and is based on a calculation integrating soil moisture data. This index shows the differences between needed and effectively available soil water for different crop types. It is one of the outputs of the B-CGMS agrometeorological model. Based on a fixed threshold, days affected by water stress have been identified and computed for specific periods during which lack of soil water is likely to have dramatic impacts on crop production. The cumulative number of days affected by water stress indicator has then been integrated into a GIS to spatially represent the situation of winter wheat and maize during the 2003 crop season. Results suggest that only maize was affected by the water stress in northern and southern Belgium. In the latter area, the lack of water at key periods provoked a yield reduction ranging between 2 and 50%. [less ▲]

Since the late 1960s, Senegal suffered from the dramatic drought which affected all the Sahel of West Africa. Thirty years later, rainfall amounts well above the 1961-1990 average may announce the end of this period of aridity. Together with this rainfall increase, floods have been reported in most Senegalese cities in 1999, 2000 and 2001. Because of these floods, many affected areas have been abandoned and stricken population has to be rehoused in precarious conditions. Most analysts consider these floods as a new phenomenon, never observed before, and they are blamed on the exceptional heavy daily rainfall. Analysing the relationship between floods and rainfall events in 1999 et 2000, it appears that rainfall amounts responsible for the beginning of each flood are far to be exceptional. However, the vulnerability of the Senegalese cities facing the risk of flood seems to have increased as a result of urban mismanagement. [less ▲]
