The GHER 3D primitive equation model is implemented with threedifferent resolutions: a low resolution model (1/4Ž°) coveringthe whole Mediterranean Sea, an intermediate resolution model (1/20Ž°)of the Liguro-Provençal basin and a high resolution model (1/60Ž°)simulating the fine mesoscale structures in the Ligurian Sea. Boundaryconditions and the averaged fields (feedback) are exchanged betweentwo successive nesting levels. The model of the Ligurian Sea is also coupled with the assimilationpackage SESAM. It allows to assimilate satellite data and in situobservations using the local adaptative SEEK (Singular EvolutiveExtended Kalman) filter. Instead of evolving the error space by thenumerically expensive Lyapunov equation, a simplified algebraicequation depending on the misfit between observation and modelforecast is used. Starting from the 1st January 1998 the low and intermediate resolutionmodels are spun up for 18 months. The initial conditions for theLigurian Sea are interpolated from the intermediate resolutionmodel. The three models are then integrated until August 1999. Duringthis period AVHRR Sea Surface Temperature of the Ligurian Sea isassimilated. The results are validated by using CTD and XBT profilesof the SIRENA cruise from the SACLANT Center. In a second validation exercise,the AVHRR SST and model forecast %(not yet affected by the SST used for validation) are decomposed at different scalesusing a horizontal wavelet transform.The processes characteristic for each scale are isolated in the model and the SST images.The error statistics calculated on the wavelet amplitudes can thus be related to the ability of the model in forecasting the correspondingmarine processes. In a second validation exercise, the AVHRR SST and model forecast areboth decomposed at different scales using a horizontal wavelet transform.The characteristic processes for each scale are isolated in the modeland the SST images. The error statistics calculated on the waveletamplitudes can thus be related to the ability of the model inforecasting the corresponding marine processes. [less ▲]

'Transaction costs' are commonly referred to in the recent literature on aid effectiveness. Aid transaction costs, however, have been neither consistently defined nor measured. This article defines aid transaction costs as all the economic costs associated with aid management that add no value to aid delivery. This enables the 'net' transaction costs that should be minimised to be identified. An analytical framework is then developed for assessing these costs. This allows the effectiveness of different aid modalities to be compared, according to the characteristics of the aid transaction. The article shows that the choice of aid modality should depend on these characteristics and, therefore, that the minimisation of transaction costs should not be an end in itself. [less ▲]

Implementing conservation strategies needs the knowledge of relationships inside the concerned population. The aim of this study was to find tools to help scientists and breeders to manage endangered populations or populations with missing pedigree information. The animal genetics literature often seems unaware of relevant developments in human genetics (and conversely). In this study, an approach called Familial Searching was tested. This is used in forensic science, in addition to matching DNA evidence directly to criminal profiles, to search for people (present in a database) who are related to an individual that left DNA evidence at a scene of crime. This method is based on the calculation of likelihood ratios (LR) between genotype of an individual and genotypes of each other individuals of the database. In order to decrease the number of comparisons, the available pedigree information was used as ‘local’ prior information, i.e. relating to specific pairs of individuals. General knowledge about the studied population (e.g., generation interval, sexual maturity) was considered as ‘global’ prior information. Including prior information reduced the number of comparisons from over 50%. Results showed that the parents were always classified into the 4 highest LR. This method simplified parentage verifications, it allowed the detection of 90% of false parentage (LR=0). It also allowed to create new links in the pedigree through detection of unregistered parents. The method was tested on the Skyros pony, an indigenous Greek breed. For this breed, partial pedigree information was available, and 99 individuals were genotyped at 16 microsatellite loci. The method allowed to check about 2500 possible parent-child combinations, three registered parentages were considered as incorrect and one non-recorded parentage was detected. The method will now be tested on other breed and with other markers, e.g. SNPs. [less ▲]
