A 1.77 m high piano key weir in operation on the Escouloubre balance basin enabled the observation of real size flows for discharges ranging from 1.2 to 10 m³/s, corresponding to upstream heads ranging from 11 to 48 cm. These observations are depicted and compared to the results gained on three physical models of the weir, built and operated considering a Froude similitude and geometric scale factors of, respectively, 1:7, 1:15 and 1:25. The study highlights the scale effects which may affect piano key weirs scale model studies and provides criteria to limit them. In particular, the results analysis shows that the scale models succeed in representing the flow conditions on the weir when the model upstream head is higher than 60 mm, and succeed in predicting the weir discharge capacity when the model upstream head is higher than 30 mm.

In this paper we will make a brief presentation of ESCWA’s Social Guide for Urban Observatories (SGUO), then we will provide a commented example of application of its indicators’ framework. We will try to identify the essential determinants leading to the development of urban fragmentation. The SGUO indicators’ framework is a problem-based one. It aims to identify the determining conditions leading to the development of an urban “problem” and its impact on sustainable urban development. The author thinks of the SGUO indicators’ framework methodology as a building site in progress. On one hand, there’s still need to develop some of its theoretical framework components, mainly the concept of determinants. On the other, it should be revisited, in a participatory way. A primary application in a set of different urban observatories in the ESCWA region is needed in order to adapt it to the specificities of the region’s urban problems and local conceptions of sustainable development.

The Cloverleaf quasar, H1413+117, has been photometrically monitored at ESO (La Silla, Chile) and with the NOT (La Palma, Spain) during the period 1987--1994. All good quality CCD frames have been successfully analysed using two independent methods (i.e. an automatic image decomposition technique and an interactive CLEAN algorithm). The photometric results from the two methods are found to be very similar, and they show that the four lensed QSO images vary significantly in brightness (by up to 0.45 mag), nearly in parallel. The lightcurve of the $D$ component presents some slight departures from the general trend which are very likely caused by micro-lensing effects. Upper limits, at the 99% confidence level, of 150 days on the absolute value for the time delays between the photometric lightcurves of this quadruply imaged variable QSO, are derived. This is unfortunately too large to constrain the lens model but there is little doubt that a better sampling of the lightcurves should allow to accurately derive these time delays. Pending a direct detection of the lensing galaxy (position and redshift), this system thus constitutes another good candidate for a direct and independent determination of the Hubble parameter. Based on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory (La Silla, Chile) and with the Nordic Optical Telescope (La Palma, Spain). Table 1.

The scientific background and objectives of our ESO Key Programme are first recalled. A brief account of our research activities (observing runs at ESO and elsewhere, meetings, etc.) is then given. Preliminary scientific results are presented concerning 1) our observational database for highly luminous quasars and distant powerful radiogalaxies; 2) speckle observations of highly luminous quasars; 3) the photometric monitoring and 4) detailed studies of several known gravitational lenses; 5) optical observations of 3C and 4C radio galaxies and 6) of the well known Einstein ring MG 1131+0456.

The Deep Impact target comet 9P/Tempel 1 was observed by means of long-slit spectroscopy from two nights before impact up to eight nights after impact, using the ESO VLT UT1, UT2, and ESO NTT telescopes. Spectra covering the complete optical wavelength range were obtained, and information at different position angles in the coma was collected. The data were used to study the gas and dust activity of comet 9P/Tempel 1. Gas production rates before and after impact and the amount of material in the impact cloud were determined. The pre-impact Afρ parameter, the dust production rate and the dust-to-gas mass ratio were derived. A variation of the cometary gas activity with rotation of the nucleus was detected. A difference in the variation of the brightness of the CN gas emission band compared to the variation of the emissions by C_2, C_3, and NH_2 in the inner coma suggests compositional differences between different parts of the surface of comet 9P/Tempel 1's nucleus.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate short and long term results after esophageal cancer resection in patients older than 75. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the database of esophageal cancer surgically treated in our department between January 2003 and December 2009 to identify patients older than 75. The preoperative, operative, postoperative and long term characteristics were analyzed. RESULTS: Among 137 patient, 23 were older than 75. The histological subtype was adenocarcinoma in 100%. The surgical techniques were a "Lewis-Santy" procedure in 43%, a trans-hiatal resection in 22%, a "Sweet" procedure in 13%, a stripping in 13% and a McKeown procedure in 9%. The in-hospital postoperative mortality was 13%. The in-hospital postoperative morbidity (Dindo-Clavien Grade >2, deceased patients included) was 26%. In univariate analysis, no statistically significant risk factor of morbidity was found. A Charlson Comorbidity Index >2 was, in univariate analysis, the sole risk factor of postoperative mortality (p = 0.0362). The mean hospital stay was 22 +/- 12 days. The median survival was 24.2 months. The 5-year overall survival was 39% and the 5-year disease free survival was 26%.57% of long-term deaths were not cancer related. CONCLUSION: Esophageal surgery performed in selected patients older than 75 has an acceptable morbidity and mortality but when a severe complication occurs, it leads to death in half of the cases. Surgery enables a long term survival benefit. This study confirmed our attitude of not considering age as a contra-indication for esophageal surgery but rather considering general status, self-reliance and associated comorbidities for patients' selection.

OBJECTIVE: Esophageal impedance (multichannel intraluminal impedance [MII]) baseline (impedance baseline [IB]) has been recently considered to be related to esophageal integrity. The aim of this study was to analyze the age effect on IB in a large population of pediatric patients. DESIGN: A total of 816 children with symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux and submitted to MII were included. Mean IB was automatically calculated in the different MII channels (Chs) throughout 24-hour tracings by the specific software without removing any episode of increased/decreased IB. Acid and nonacid reflux parameters and age subgroups analysis were performed. Unpaired t test, Spearman rank correlation, polynomial and regression plot, multiple regression analysis, factorial analysis of variance, and the least mean squares method were used for statistical analysis and age-related percentile curves. P < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant. RESULTS: Mean IB was significantly (P < 0.001) lower in younger compared with older children up to 48 months. The mean increase of IB per month was 2.9 Omega in Ch 1 and 2.3 Omega in Ch 6, but much higher in the first 36 months of life (47.5 Omega in Ch 1 and 29.9 Omega in Ch 6, respectively). From 48 months onward, there was no significant increase of the mean IB (P = 0.73). In the multiple regression analysis, only age and reflux index (but no other reflux parameters) significantly correlated with IB. Distal IB was significantly (P < 0.05) lower in patients with esophagitis and in subjects taking proton pump inhibitors compared with subjects off (any) treatment. Percentiles of IB in proximal and distal Chs were provided according to different age groups. CONCLUSIONS: IB is significantly lower in infants (especially in the first months of life) compared with older children. Low IB in both proximal and distal esophagus in young infants may be related to anatomical and functional difference other than the presence of esophagitis. [less ▲]
