We present new FUV observations of Doppler-shifted Lyman-alpha emissions from proton aurora obtained from the High Resolution Ionospheric and Thermospheric Spectrograph ( HITS) aboard the Advanced Research and Global Observation Satellite (ARGOS). The HITS instrument observes the Doppler-shifted H Lyman-alpha emissions from proton precipitation with 1.5 Angstrom resolution. The high spectral resolution of these measurements allows the auroral Lyman-alpha emissions to be separated from the intense geocoronal background. The measured proton aurora Doppler spectra are modeled using a Monte Carlo simulation of proton flux transport. The forward modeling performed with this code allows us to infer the characteristic energies of the incident protons from the measured Lyman-alpha Doppler spectra. The inferred characteristics of dayside versus nightside proton precipitation are compared and used to identify the magnetospheric regions from which the particles likely originated. [less ▲]

The analysis of HST-STIS FUV images has greatly and quickly advanced our knowledge of the magnetospheric mechanisms producing the auroral emissions on the giant planets. However, these studies were limited to the brightest emissions and very little has been said about the fainter emissions, mainly because of the lower S/N. We propose to image the faint auroral emissions on Jupiter which could not be observed with STIS. We will take full advantage of ACS/SBC's higher sensitivity to observe the diffuse auroral FUV emissions appearing poleward and directly equatorward of Jupiter's main auroral oval in the northern hemisphere. This proposal has the potential to reveal new magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling mechanisms especially those involving solar wind interactions with a giant planet. [less ▲]

We are developing a coupling interface downscaling the 25km-atmosphere fields simulated by the regional climate MAR (Modèle Atmosphérique Régional) model onto a 5km-grid in order to resolve the surface processes at high resolution with the SISVAT (Sea Ice Soil Vegetation Atmosphere Transfer) snow-ice module. This coupling interface improves the representation of the topography and ablation zone of the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) in the MAR model, and therefore will provide higher resolution estimations of the GrIS surface mass balance (SMB) without additional computing time. By using outputs from previously-gauged global circulation models (GCM) as forcing fields, the MAR model coupled with the downscaling interface will then perform 5km future simulations of the GrIS SMB for different IPCC greenhouse gas emissions scenarios for the 21st century.

Saturated hydraulic conductivity (Ks) is one of the most important parameters determining groundwater flow and contaminant transport in both unsaturated and saturated porous media. This paper investigates the hand-held air permeameter technique for high resolution hydraulic conductivity determination on borehole cores using a spatial resolution of ~0.05 m. We test the suitability of such air permeameter measurements on friable to poorly indurated sediments to improve the spatial prediction of classical laboratory based Ks measurements obtained at a much lower spatial resolution (~2 m). About 368 Ks measurements were made on ~350 m of borehole cores originating from the Campine basin, Northern Belgium, while ~5230 air permeability measurements were performed on the same cores. The heterogeneity in sediments, ranging from sand to clayey sand with distinct clay lenses, resulted in a Ks range of seven orders of magnitude. Cross-validation demonstrated that using air permeameter data as secondary variable and laboratory based Ks measurements as primary variable increased performance from R2 = 0.35 for ordinary kriging (laboratory Ks only) to R2 = 0.61 for co-kriging. Due to the large degree of small-scale variability detected by the air permeameter, the spatial granularity in the predicted laboratory Ks also increases drastically. The separate treatment of Kh and Kv revealed considerable anisotropy in certain lithostratigraphical units, while others where clearly isotropic at the sample scale. Air permeameter measurements on borehole cores provide a cost-effective way to improve spatial predictions of traditional laboratory based Ks. [less ▲]

SYNOPSIS: Skin colours are notoriously different between individuals. They are governed by ethnicities and phototypes, and further influenced by a variety of factors including photoexposures and sustained mechanical stress. Indeed, mechanobiology is a feature affecting the epidermal melanization. High-resolution epiluminescence colorimetry helps in deciphering the effects of forces generated by Langer's lines or relaxed skin tension lines on the melanocyte activity. The same procedure shows a prominent laddering pattern of melanization in striae distensae contrasting with the regular honeycomb pattern in the surrounding skin. [less ▲]

Various applications of high resolution spectroscopy with the ESO Coude Echelle Spectrometer (CES) are discussed. The aim of this paper is not to present a complete survey of the CES capabilities, but to illustrate some possible applications, with emphasis on rather unusual aspects. In all the observations presented here, the CES has been used with the new short camera and a CCD detector (high resolution RCA SID 503, 640 x 1024 pixels, 15x15 microns each). Compared to the long camera and Reticon detector, this new combination represents an increase of efficiency of 2 to 3 magnitudes with only a moderate loss of resolving power. [less ▲]

Although X-ray emission from massive, early-type stars has been known for almost thirty years, it is only with the advent of the high-resolution spectrographs aboard Chandra and XMM-Newton that a detailed investigation of the X-ray spectra of these stars has become possible. The existing observations of both single and binary early-type stars have been used to study the properties of their stellar winds. While some results agree with the expectations from theoretical models, other spectra show unexpected features. In this contribution, we review our current knowledge on the X-ray emission of stars of spectral type O and Wolf-Rayet and discuss the possibilities to test some new ideas with future high-resolution X-ray observations.

We present the first high resolution X-ray spectrum of the bright O4Ief supergiant star zeta Puppis, obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on-board XMM-Newton. The spectrum exhibits bright emission lines of hydrogen-like and helium-like ions of nitrogen, oxygen, neon, magnesium, and silicon, as well as neon-like ions of iron. The lines are all significantly resolved, with characteristic velocity widths of order 1000-1500 km s[SUP]-1[/SUP]. The nitrogen lines are especially strong, and indicate that the shocked gas in the wind is mixed with CNO-burned material, as has been previously inferred for the atmosphere of this star from ultraviolet spectra. We find that the forbidden to intercombination line ratios within the helium-like triplets are anomalously low for N VI, O VII, and Ne IX. While this is sometimes indicative of high electron density, we show that in this case, it is instead caused by the intense ultraviolet radiation field of the star. We use this interpretation to derive constraints on the location of the X-ray emitting shocks within the wind that are consistent with current theoretical models for this system. [less ▲]

The reaction between superthermal N([SUP]4[/SUP]S) atoms produced by exothermic processes and O[SUB]2[/SUB] has been proposed to explain observations of highly rotationally excited nitric oxide in the sunlit thermosphere. We examine the importance of this mechanism using a detailed calculation of the fast N([SUP]4[/SUP]S) atoms energy distribution. It is shown that the hot thermal N atoms are able to produce rotationally excited NO in the upper thermosphere through the reaction of O[SUB]2[/SUB] with N([SUP]4[/SUP]S). By contrast, near the NO peak at 110 km, the Maxwellian nitrogen atoms produce substantially less rovibrationally excited NO than the superthermal component. Consequently, the non Maxwellian N([SUP]4[/SUP]S) atoms show a clear spectral signature in the (1-0) and (2-1) bandheads at this altitude. The calculated rovibrationally excited NO concentration at 140 km is shown to be consistent with the value derived from the analysis of infrared airglow spectra. [less ▲]

In this paper, we investigate the characterization and evaluation of the antifungal protease activity from a halotolerant strain M3-16 of Bacillus pumilus, earlier isolated from a shallow salt lake in Tunisia. Protease enzyme was highly induced by the pathogen tested in vitro (27.4 U/ml). This is the first report on high salt-tolerant protease from B. pumilus, since it was active at high salinity (from 5 to 30% NaCl, w/v) as well as in the absence of salinity. This enzyme showed optimal activity at 60 °C and pH 8. At 80 °C and 30 min, the enzyme retained up to 91% and it showed stability over a wide pH range (from pH 5 to 11). The enzyme was found to be monomer with an estimated molecular mass of 31 kDa. The amino acid sequence showed high similarity (94%) to ATP-dependent protease from B. pumilus strain ATCC 7061. Thus, our alkaline thermostable and high salt-tolerant protease induced by a phytopathogenic fungus, could be useful for application in diverse areas such as biotechnology alimentary and agronomy industries.
