Related to the Gulf of Corinth rifting, five earthquakes of magnitude greater than 5.8 occurred in the last 35 years. Consequently, the question of earthquake (EQ) hazard is particularly relevant. Onland, paleoseismological data are scarce and offshore data were absent before the present study. We investigated recent sediments bounding three well-defined major seismogenic faults. We retrieved 12 gravity cores from 50 to 85 cm long in three distinct sites: the southern shelf (40 to 50 m deep), a 180 m deep sub-basin, and a transect from the southern coast to the center of the gulf. We performed grain size analysis, magnetic susceptibility, loss on ignition and geochemical (X-Ray Fluorescence) measurements on cores from each site. We sought to identify layers potentially attributed to EQ-related processes like liquefaction and tsunamis for the sites on the shelves or mass transport and turbidity currents for the basins. Chronology is based on 137Cs (Atmospheric Nuclear Experiments) and 210Pb decay. Considering sedimentation rates estimates in these areas, the longer cores record about 500 years of sedimentary archives. On the southern shelf, 3 coarser layers have been identified at identical depth in 3 cores. 210Pb decay show erosion just under the first event that we attributed to the 1995 tsunami (backwash flow deposit). In the 180m deep sub-basin, among 3 clear grain-size peaks, two have been attributed to the 1817 Aegion EQ and the 1660 Galaxidi EQ. In last site, 10 “events” (grain-size and Zr/Rb peaks) have been identified in the deepest part of the transect 4 on the shelf. Their analysis is in progress, as well as paleomagnetic measurements.

“During the course of the 20th century, the planet became and is now chemically different from any previous time”. (1) Organic and inorganic chemicals occur in greater abundance because of human activity and end up in the ocean. As more humans inhabit coastal regions, question arises about the health of our oceans. Marine vertebrates such as marine fish, turtles, birds and mammals are used to get early warning about negative trends and impact linked to anthropogenic activities. Such organisms are qualified as sentinel species (2). In turn, sentinels will permit us to better characterize and potentially manage negative impacts on human and animal health associated with our oceans. Marine predators including marine mammals and birds can present elevated concentrations of these organic and inorganic chemicals in their tissues, due to their high position in the trophic chain, their life span, and their fat store in which lipophilic chemicals accumulate. Humans and marine predators share common routes of exposures such as (1) the maternal transfer through placenta and milk and (2) trophic transfer through ingestion of marine fish and shellfish. Furthermore, some human population rely on marine mammal consumption for subsistence. Marine predators offer a snapshot of ocean health that could potentially impact human health. In the hope that this paper will stimulate the research much needed for assessing ocean health in the context of a rapidly changing environment, we provide here a review of (i) levels and trends of contaminants and relationships with biotic and abiotic factors, (ii) toxicological effects and (iii) spatial and geographical trends in tissues of marine predators. We conclude this communication by presenting several necessary perspectives such a more thorough follow of organic and inorganic pollutants in the marine environment including the use of isotopic tracers to assess the local versus global aspects of marine pollution.

MARE gathers 24 laboratories of the Faculties of Science, Applied Science, Law and Veterinary Medicine. It integrates complementary disciplines of Oceanology through both pluridisciplinary field works and modeling. Major research themes of MARE are: 1) The detection and prediction of changes in coastal ecosystems integrating data collection, the development of statistical tools and 3D interdisciplinary models used conjointly with specific diagnostic tools tailored to management purposes; 2) The study of the CO2 dynamics in order to budget fluxes in major coastal areas and the Southern Ocean, through data collection, satellite imagery and modeling studies; 3) The dynamic and diversity of the Ocean Pelagic Ecosystem; 4) Biodiversity and taxonomic studies in different coastal and deep-sea areas; 5) Study of marine trophic webs using stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes; 6) Ecotoxicology and Ecophysiology: study of the effects of pollutants on marine organisms including marine mammals and investigations on genetic diversity, pathology and causes of death of marine mammals and seabirds; 7) Ecology of macrophytes systems and of benthic algae; 8) Sediments studies (e.g. sediment transport, sediment structure analysis, benthic habitats characterization and diversity); 9) Reconstruction of paleocirculations using isotope analysis (Nd, Pb); 10) Study of coastal evolution and management. This includes the study of coastal geomorphology using remote sensing data and coastal engineering. Moreover, MARE researchers have access to the research station STARESO in Corsica (http://www.stareso.com/), and to the Belgian R.V. Belgica, which operates in the North Sea and adjacent areas (http://www.mumm.ac.be/EN/Monitoring/Belgica/). Finally, the MARE centre supports the extant set of second and third cycle Teachings (master in Oceanography; http://www.ulg.ac/oceanbio/, DEA in Oceanology, European DEA in Marine Environment Modeling) - unique in the French-speaking Community of Belgium -, of a Doctoral School, and of international Conferences and Colloquia (The International Liège Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics and associated Symposia).

A previously undocumented marine vertebrate fauna comprising ichthyosaur, plesiosaur, marine crocodilian and fish remains from the Toarcian-Aalenian succession at Lafarge quarry, southern Beaujolais, Rhône, France is described on the basis of both historical collections and new discoveries. The taxonomic composition of the Lafarge quarry marine vertebrate assemblage highlights its cosmopolitan nature and strong relationships with taxa known from elsewhere in Europe. Several groups are recorded for the first time in the Toarcian-Aalenian succession of France, implying new palaeobiogeographic interpretations, and prompting discussion of marine amniote diversity during this interval.

En numerosas novelas, Vargas Llosa aborda los mismo temas que en sus ensayos de manera que se establecen ecos entre ficción y no ficción, ecos que, de una u otra manera, apoyan implícitamente la verdad de los textos literarios por la de los ensayos historiográficos. También el hecho de que el narrador en sus novelas a menudo tenga rasgos autobiográficos evidentes de su autor contribuye a borrar las fronteras entre universo de ficción interno y universo externo. Además, en varias novelas Vargas Llosa tiende a borrar las fronteras entre los géneros, y acerca la novela al ensayo Al comparar El hablador, novela que publicó en 1987, con el ensayo José María Arguedas o las ficciones del indigenismo, de 1996, nos interrogamos acerca de la relación que existe entre las ideas sobre el indigenismo expresadas por Vargas Llosa en la ficción y fuera de ella.

Both members of 15 heterosexual couples with an alcoholic husband (AC) and of 15 matched couples with healthy members (HC) filled out first, the Marital Adjustment Test (Locke & Wallace, 1959), second, the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory (Coopersmith, 1967), and finally, a questionnaire on emotional feeling state in which the participant had to evaluate his or her own emotions and the emotions experienced by his or her partner. Results showed that both AC members reported lower marital satisfaction and a lower level of self-esteem than HC members. Furthermore, they were less congruent with their partner regarding the evaluation of their partner’s emotional feeling states (EFS). These deficits could have repercussions on marital happiness, which itself would have repercussions on the alcoholic’s treatment. [less ▲]
