The North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is a ~1500-km-long, arcuate, dextral strike-slip fault zone in northern Turkey that extends from the Karliova triple junction to the Aegean Sea. East of Bolu, the fault zone exhibits evidence of a sequence of large (Mw>7) earthquakes that occurred during the 20th century that displayed a migrating earthquake sequence from east to west. Prolonged human occupation in this region provides an extensive, but not exhaustive, historical record of large earthquakes prior to the 20th century that covers much of the last 2000 years. In this study, we extend our knowledge of rupture events in the region by evaluating the stratigraphy and chronology of sediments exposed in a paleoseismic trench across a splay of the NAF at Destek, ~6.5 km east of Lake Ladik (40.868°N, 36.121°E). The trenched fault strand forms an uphill-facing scarp and associated sediment trap below a small catchment. The trench exposed a narrow fault zone that has juxtaposed a sequence of weakly-defined paleosols interbedded with colluvium against highly-fractured bedrock. We mapped magnetic susceptibility variations on the trench walls and found evidence for multiple visually unrecognized colluvial wedges. This technique was also used to constrain a predominantly dip-slip style of displacement on this fault splay. Sediments exposed in the trench were dated using both charcoal and terrestrial gastropod shells to constrain the timing of the earthquake events. While the gastropod shells consistently yielded 14C-ages that were too old (by ~900 years), we obtained highly reliable 14C-ages from the charcoal by dating multiple components of the sample material. Our radiocarbon chronology constrains the timing of seven large earthquakes over the past 3000 years prior to the 1943 Ladik earthquake, including event ages (including 2 sigma error):1437-1788AD, 1034-1321AD, 549-719AD, 17-585AD (1-3 events), 351BC-28AD, 700-392BC, 912-596BC. Our results indicate an average inter-event time of 385±166yrs (1 sigma) [less ▲]

The North Anatolian Fault is a ~1200 km long right-lateral strike-slip fault that forms the northern boundary of the Anatolian plate. A damaging sequence of earthquakes ruptured almost the entire fault in the twentieth century. This study adds to the growing number of paleoseismic investigations on the 350 km long 1939 Erzincan earthquake rupture segment, which is toward the eastern end of the North Anatolian Fault in Turkey. Using three paleoseismic trenches located along about 2km of the principal fault strand, this study determines the timing of five earthquakes prior to the 1939 earthquake. The first three earthquakes are correlated to historical earthquakes in A.D. 1668, 1254, 499 and two further events were identified at 881 – 673 B.C. and 1406 – 1291 B.C. (2σ age ranges). By comparing the earthquake timing determined in this study to the results of other paleoseismic investigations on the 1939 rupture segment, it becomes clear that this historical rupture segment does not always rupture in unison. This analysis indicates that the A.D. 499 earthquake was the last time the 1939 rupture segment ruptured in unison; although partial ruptures of the 1939 rupture segment occur more frequently and also produce large magnitude earthquakes (> Mw 7).

The level of genotypic relationship between czc+ soil bacteria mainly resistant to zinc (but also to various other metals), and related facultative hydrogenotrophs previously assigned to the genera Alcaligenes, Ralstonia, and Burkholderia was evaluated using ARDRA (Amplified Ribosomal DNA Restriction Analysis). The analysis included 44 strains isolated from harsh industrial environments in sediments, soils and wastes with high content of heavy metals. These strains were selected by their ability to grow in the presence of high concentrations of multiple heavy metals and to hybridise with czc or ncc probes. The czc operon confers resistance to cadmium, zinc and cobalt in strain Ralstonia eutropha CH34. The net operon confers resistance to nickel, cobalt and cadmium in strain 31A known as Alcaligenes xylosoxidans. The analysis showed a close phylogenetic clustering of the czc+ strains inside the Ralstonia genus despite of their different origins and that the Ralstonia genus contained also the hydrogenotrophs and some catabolic strains assigned to the genus Ralstonia eutropha, strains up to now registrated as CDC IV c-2 strains as well as reference strains belonging to Ralstonia solanacearum and Ralstonia pickettii. The ncc+ strains are phylogenetically less related to each other compared to the czc+ strains. This suggests that the tested czc+ strains and some of the ncc+ strains may be considered as belonging to the genus Ralstonia. Inside this major Ralstonia cluster, a subcluster gathers most of the czc+ isolates maybe giving a clue to define a new species. Besides, from 30 tested strains, 15 metal resistant strains of this subcluster proved to display the unusual mutator phenotype characteristic of the representative strain CH34 [less ▲]

High-resolution physical, geochemical, and geochronological analyses on the sedimentary sequence of Yeniçağa Lake, located in a fault-bounded basin along the North Anatolian Fault, reveal fingerprints of paleoearthquakes. A robust sediment chronology, spanning the last 3400 years, is constructed by radiocarbon dating and time-stratigraphical correlation with the precisely dated Sofular Cave speleothem record. Yeniçağa sedimentary sequence contains 11 seismically induced event deposits characterized by siliciclastic-enriched intervals. Some of the event deposits are also associated with implications of sudden lake deepening, which may be related to coseismic subsidence. The paleoearthquake series having an average recurrence interval of ca. 260 years are interrupted by two possible seismic gaps of ca. 420 and 540 years. [less ▲]

A top-down integration scheme for silicon vertical nanowire (NW) tunnel field-effect transistors (TFETs) with a 35nm nanowire dimension and using state-of-the-art metal gate and high-k gate dielectric is demonstrated. Using the short-gate concept [1], the ambipolar behavior of the TFET is successfully suppressed. The measured TFET performance is not yet beyond that of the MOSFET, most likely due to the use of silicon that has a large bandgap and the use of ion implantation for the formation of the tunnel junction which results in a low junction abruptness. To boost the device performance, a low thermal budget processing could be used on etched nanowires in a substrate with epitaxial grown junction, in order to increase the abruptness of the tunnel junction.

Le but de ce livre est de présenter une série d'exercices destinés à entraîner ou rééduquer l'articulation, la parole bégayée, la voix parlée et chantée. L'intérêt est d'offrir en un seul volume un matériel spécifique à chaque secteur envisagé (articulation, parole et voix), tout en établissant des passerelles entre les diverses parties. Les exercices articulatoires peuvent servir de support pour remédier aux bégaiements et aux troubles vocaux. Bon nombre d'exercices prévus pour traiter les bégaiements sont adaptables à la voix et vice versa.Ces exercices constituent un outil technique à insérer dans une conception des troubles articulatoires, des bégaiements et des pathologies vocales. Ils seront répétés jusqu'à ce que leur réalisation soit conforme au projet de la personne qui les effectue. Ils seront fait avec humour et bonne humeur. Il importe aussi que chacun en découvre l'utilité et l'efficacité. Le thérapeute travaillera tout autant que son client. Enfin, comme toute technique, les exercices se feront rapidement oublier au profit du plaisir d'articuler, de parler et de s'exprimer sans réserve et de cohabiter avec sa parole et sa voix. [less ▲]
