Desertification ranks among the major environmental challenges of the 21st century and is defined by the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification as ‘land degradation in arid, semiarid, and dry subhumid areas resulting from various factors, including climatic variations and human activities’. Currently, desertification affects a total area between 6 million and 12 million square kilometres and generates large loss of income, estimated at US$42 billion each year. Areas threatened by desertification occupy 34% of the Earth’s land area and are home to about 2 billion people. [...] [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 46 (5 ULg)

In the frame of an international project between the Paleontological Institute of Moscow and the Museum of Paris, a Russo-Franco-Latvian team has been set up to prospect the Main Devonian Field in North-Western Russia (Novgorod and Leningrad Regions). This joined project started in 2009 (one month of field trip), continued in 2010 (one month also) and will end in 2011. The two first years were mainly devoted to the prospecting of historical localities, some discovered and/or exploited by Dmitry Obruchev himself. Such a method is effective but quite time-consuming; i.e. to rediscover the accurate location of the localities by discussing with denizens, to fathom the archives out and to access to non-weathered layers by removing the altered surface. Novgorod and Leningrad Regions are topographically excessively flat. Devonian fields have not been disrupted by tectonic movements and the layers are thus horizontal. Rocks are most often quite unconsolidated (consisting of loose sands or clays) and excavations are thus relatively easy. The lack of relief and the vegetal cover unfortunately lead to few outcrops in the landscape. They are all located along rivers (Lovat’, Syas' and Oredesh rivers for instance) or are represented by outliers. Although most of the localities were easily accessible by cars, others required several kilometers by feet and/or by boat. Roughly 30 localities have been prospected. About one third of them are very interesting such as Borshovo and Goryn' (Luga District) which provided numerous and exquisite fossils of placoderms, agnathans and sarcopterygians. The original locality of the Frasnian tetrapod Obruchevichthys in Russia, Sondala (Leningrad Region), has been rediscovered with near certainty. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 16 (2 ULg)

We present the results from two optical spectroscopic campaigns on colliding-wind binaries (CWB) which both occurred in 2009. The first one was on WR 140 (WC7pd + O5.5fc), the archetype of CWB, which experienced periastron passage of its highly elliptical 8-year orbit in January. The WR 140 campaign consisted of a unique and constructive collaboration between amateur and professional astronomers and took place at half a dozen locations, including Teide Observatory, Observatoire de Haute Provence, Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic and at several small private observatories. The second campaign was on a selection of 5 short-period WR + O binaries not yet studied for colliding-wind effects: WR 12 (WN8h), WR 21 (WN5o + O7 V), WR 30 (WC6 + O7.5 V), WR 31 (WN4o + O8), and WR 47 (WN6o + O5). The campaign took place at Leoncito Observatory, Argentina, during 1 month. We provide updated values of most of these systems for the orbital parameters, new estimates for the WR and O star masses and new constraints on the mass-loss rates and colliding wind geometry.
