In the context of energy demand side management (DSM), energy storage solutions are needed to stock energy during high production periods and recover energy during high demand periods. Among currently studied solutions, storing energy in the subsurface through heat pumps and/or exchangers (thermal energy storage) is relatively simple with low investment costs. However, the design and functioning of such systems have strong interconnections with the geology of the site which may be complex and heterogeneous, making predictions difficult. In this context, local temperature measurements are necessary but not sufficient to model heat flow and transport in the subsurface. Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) provides spatially distributed information on the temperature distribution in the subsurface. In this study, we monitored, with 4D ERT combined with multiple hydrological measurements in available wells, a short-term heat storage experiment in a confined alluvial aquifer. We injected heated water (ΔT=30K) during 6 hours with a rate of 3 m³/h, stored during 3 days, and then we pumped it back to estimate the energy balance. We collected ERT data sets using 9 parallel profiles of 21 electrodes and cross-lines measurements. Inversion results clearly show the ability of ERT to delimit the thermal plume growth during injection, the diffusion and decrease of temperature during storage, and the decrease in size after pumping. Quantitative interpretation of ERT is difficult at this stage due to strong spatial variations of the total dissolved solid content in the aquifer, due to historical chloride contamination of the site. Energy balance shows that up to 75% of the energy can be easily recovered with an adapted strategy in the context of DSM. Short-term heat storage in alluvial aquifer is efficient and ERT is a valuable tool to image and estimate the temperature distribution in the subsurface. [less ▲]

ABSTRACT Background. The ALERT algorithm, an effective compression-only phone cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) protocol has the potential to help bystanders initiate CPR. This study evaluates the psychological impact of the CPR’s practice on untrained persons (UP). Methods. This is a quasi experimental longitudinal study (n = 153). We used: demographics data, CPR’ emotional characteristics; the Peritraumatic Dissociative Experiences Questionnaire ; the Way of Coping Check List and the Impact of Event Scale. Findings. Two psychological profiles: UP at high risk to develop a post traumatic disorder (higher average scores ; high emotional distress during the CPR) versus UP at low risk. Discussion. These preliminary results highlight the importance of identifying the psychological profile of the UP. For a CPR, UP at high risk should be treated differently: first, take the time to reduce emotional distress and then only talk about the CPR. This step could reduce the risk for PTSD [less ▲]

Methods validation is mandatory in order to assess the fitness of purpose of the developed analytical method. Of core importance at the end of the validation is the evaluation of the reliability of the individual results that will be generated during the routine application of the method. Regulatory guidelines provide a general framework to assess the validity of a method, but none address the issue of results reliability. In this study, a Bayesian approach is proposed to address this concern. Results reliability is defined here as “the probability of an analytical method to provide analytical results within predefined acceptance limits around their reference or conventional true concentration values over a defined concentration range and under given environmental and operating conditions.” By providing the minimum reliability probability needed for the subsequent routine application of the method, as well as specifications or acceptance limits , the proposed Bayesian approach provides the effective probability of obtaining reliable future analytical results over the whole concentration range investigated. This is summarized in a single graph: the reliability profile. This Bayesian reliability profile is also compared to two frequentist approaches, the first one derived from the work of Dewé et al. [Dewé W., Govaerts B., Boulanger B., Rozet E., Chiap P., Hubert Ph., Chemometr. Intell. Lab. Syst. 85 (2007) 262-268] and the second proposed by Govaerts et al. [B. Govaerts, W. Dewé, M. Maumy, B. Boulanger, Qual. Reliab. Engng. Int. 24 (2008) 667-680]. Furthermore, to illustrate the applicability of the Bayesian reliability profile, this approach is also applied here to a bioanalytical method dedicated to the determination of ketoglutaric acid (KG) and hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in human plasma by SPE-HPLC-UV.

Economic evaluations of animal health surveillance systems are critical components of the assessment of their long-term sustainability and the improvement of their cost- effectiveness. Social costs and benefits of health information release through the surveillance systems are fundamental determinants of the acceptability and efficacy of surveillance and are often neglected in the evaluation process. This study presents the evaluation of social costs and benefits of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) surveillance in Vietnam. Three field studies were conducted in the South and North of the country. Data on animal health information flow networks and social costs and benefits were collected using participatory approaches. Non-monetary costs and benefits were quantified using a newly developed tool based on stated choice method and participatory techniques. The study showed that private actors incur many transaction costs in reporting the information. However social costs mainly arise from price drops due to information release on market which has strong influences on the decision to disclose sanitary information. This applies at all levels including farmers and veterinary authorities. Private actors of the poultry sector valued information on occurring disease outbreaks, which is perceived as a social benefit. However avian influenza information is scarcely disclosed in private networks as stakeholders fear its potential impact on markets. [less ▲]

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are considered to be priming agents in plant responsive defense to protect themselves against abiotic or/and biotic stresses. Such stresses often influence on plant photosynthesis and defense responses, resulting in a variety of volatile profiles. We investigated how different temperature regimes affect the VOCs emission capacity of Arabidopsis thaliana Col-0 (A.t Col-0) in the presence and absence of a sucking insect – Myzus persicae (green peach aphid). VOCs analyses were made with solid-phase micro-extraction coupled with gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (SPME- GC/MS) under controlled and various stress treatments. In response to temperature stresses, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes and terpenes were the most emitted VOCs. Moreover, the compared results showed that the percent emission of several compounds changed significantly. The interaction between temperature stresses and aphids released some new volatile components; like isothiocynates, esters, sulfur compound and nitrile. Besides, the qualitative and overall proportion of volatile blends differed significantly from plants subjected to the stress treatments within different time intervals (0-24h; 24-48h and 48-72h). Overall, both stress treatments correlated with increased or decreased levels of VOCs classes from Arabidopsis shoot organs. Knowledge of how the temperature – aphids interaction influences on VOCs emission in this study also provides interesting information for evaluating the responsive resistance in plants under natural environments.

Ce cours est dispensé depuis 10 ans selon un format traditionnel ex cathedra. De nouveaux objectifs et de nouvelles modalités pédagogiques ont été introduits en 2010-2011. L’objectif principal est l’apprentissage réflexif des étudiants. Les outils pédagogiques sont le portfolio électronique, une vignette clinique évolutive, l’accompagnement à distance de chaque étudiant par un tuteur, des cours en présentiel. La pratique réflexive de chaque étudiant est évaluée au terme du dispositif selon des critères et des indicateurs préalablement communiqués. Des perspectives ont émergé sur base des analyses des forces et faiblesses. [less ▲]
