This paper presents the results of a six-year experience in collecting data on landfills and dumpsites in developing countries. Information such as the position of a landfill, its size and the way it is managed are gathered in a database. The characterisation of wastes is also performed. Finally the actions taken or to be taken on each site are summarized. The purpose of such a project is to keep in memory all the information available about the main landfills and dumpsites in developing countries. This allows the identification and the management of their negative impacts on the environment. Furthermore, this tool will be of first help to set up proper rehabilitation projects. At present time, information about 85 landfills from 13 countries has been collected. The main partners of this project are Tunisia, Haiti, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Cuba. Besides those factual partnerships, new collaboration projects are being discussed with other countries such as Guinea. This work has already received the positive support of people involved in waste management in West Africa. The Atlas of MSW landfills and dumpsites in developing countries is published on the Internet (http://www.ulg.ac.be/cwbi/index.htm). Thanks to the support of the IEPF (Institut de l'Energie et de l'Environnement de la Francophonie / Institute for Energy and Environment in French talking Countries; IEPF is a member of AIF), it will be entirely updated and diffused on a broad range. This includes development of a new relational database and Internet site and the edition of a paper version of the Atlas. [less ▲]

This Atlas provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the historical and current perspectives on osteoarthritis, including the pathophysiology and epidemiology of the disease. Written by leading authors in the field of osteoarthritis, the book discusses classification, etiology and risk factors for osteoarthritis, the disease course and determinants of osteoarthritis progression, clinical features and diagnosis as well as imaging methods to assess joint damage. The Atlas of Osteoarthritis concludes with the latest treatment updates including both nonpharmacological and pharmacological treatments, as well as surgical recommendations for patients with the disease. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disease causing joint pain, stiffness, and physical disability among adults. It is an important issue for both the individual and society with its impact on public health continuing to grow as a result of the aging population, the rising prevalence of obesity, and the lack of definitive treatments to prevent or halt the progress of the disease.

Toute personne qui se déplace dans un environnement complexe souhaite pouvoir s'orienter et tente pour ainsi dire de «cartographier» l'espace dans lequel il évolue. Tant les personnes que les institutions ont besoin d'une représentation compréhensible des environnements spatiaux dans lesquels elles vivent et se déplacent. Un troisième Atlas de Belgique est édité afin de répondre à cette nécessité, avec pour objectif d'ordonner l'abondance de données disponibles, principalement en les visualisant dans l'espace. L'actuelle société belge, avec sa complexité, ses fortes différenciations sociales et spatiales, ses anciennes oppositions et ses nouveaux fossés, est ainsi cartographiée. Le troisième 'Atlas de Belgique' tente de présenter les données d'un maximum de sources en faisant ressortir leur composante spatiale. [less ▲]

Vertical profiles of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in the lower stratosphere and upper troposphere have been retrieved from 0.01-cm-1 resolution infrared solar occultation spectra recorded by the Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy (ATMOS) Fourier transform spectrometer during the ATLAS (Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Science) 1 shuttle mission of March 24 to April 2, 1992. Based on measurements of the unresolved absorption by the SF6 nu3 band Q branch at 947.9 cm-1, average SF6 volume mixing ratios and 1-sigma uncertainties of 3.20 +/- 0.54 parts per trillion by volume (pptv; 10(-12) ppv) at 200 mbar (approximately 11.8 km) declining to 2.86 +/- 0.29 pptv at 100 mbar (approximately 16.2 km) and 1.95 +/- 0.50 pptv at 30 mbar (approximately 23.9 km) have been retrieved. The profiles show no obvious dependence with latitude over the range of the measurements (eight occultations spanning 28-degrees-S to 54-degrees-S). Assuming an exponential growth model and applying a correction for the interhemispheric concentration difference, an average SF6 rate of increase of 8.7 +/- 2.2% per year, 2 sigma, between 12 and 18 km has been derived by fitting the present measurements, ATMOS measurements from the April-May 1985 Spacelab 3 mission, and balloon-borne IR measurements obtained in March 1981 and June 1988.

[1] We have compared a new version of Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy Experiment (ATMOS) retrievals (version 3) of stratospheric and mesospheric water vapor with observations from shuttleborne, satelliteborne, balloonborne, and aircraftborne instruments. These retrievals show agreement to within 5% with the MkIV observations in the middle and lower stratosphere. ATMOS agrees with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Lyman-alpha hygrometer to within 5% except for features with spatial scales less than the vertical resolution of ATMOS (such as the lower stratospheric seasonal cycle). ATMOS observations are 10-16% lower than measurements from the Harvard Lyman-alpha hygrometer in the lower stratosphere and are 7-14% higher than those from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS; prototype version 0104) throughout most of the stratosphere. Agreement is within 7% with the Millimeter-Wave Atmospheric Sounder (MAS; version 20) in the middle and upper stratosphere, but differences are closer to 13% in the lower stratosphere. Throughout the stratosphere, agreement is within 8% with the Halogen Occultation Experiment (HALOE; version 19). ATMOS data from 1994 show agreement with the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment II (SAGE II; version 6) values to within 8% in the middle stratosphere, but ATMOS observations are systematically higher than those from SAGE II by as much as 41% in the lower stratosphere. In contrast, ATMOS 1985 values are systematically similar to50% lower than SAGE II values from sunset occultations in the lower stratosphere near 70 hPa but appear to be in better agreement with sunrise occultations. Version 3 retrievals in the upper stratosphere and lower mesosphere are typically 5-10% lower than version 2 values between 1 and 0.05 hPa. This reduction improves agreement with HALOE, MAS, and MLS upper atmospheric observations, but ATMOS values still tend to be higher than values from these instruments in the middle mesosphere. Agreement among the instruments compared here (except for SAGE II) is generally within 15% in the middle to lower stratosphere and mesosphere and within 10% in the middle to upper stratosphere. At altitudes near 30 km, all instruments (including SAGE II) agree to within 10%. [less ▲]

Vertical profiles of infrared cirrus extinction have been derived from tropical and subtropical upper tropospheric solar occultation spectra. The measurements were recorded by the Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy (ATMOS) Fourier transform spectrometer during the Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Sciences (ATLAS) 3 shuttle flight in November 1994. The presence of large numbers of small ice crystals is inferred from the appearance of broad extinction features in the 8-12 mu m region. These features were observed near the tropopause and at lower altitudes. Vertical profiles of the ice extinction (km(-1)) in microwindows at 831, 957, and 1204 cm(-1) have been retrieved from the spectra and analyzed with a model for randomly oriented spheroidal ice crystals. An area-equivalent spherical radius of 6 mu m is estimated from the smallest ice crystals observed in the 8-12 mu m region. Direct penetration of clouds into the lower stratosphere is inferred from observations of cloud extinction extending from the upper troposphere to 50 mbar (20 km altitude). Cloud extinction between 3 and 5 mu m shows very little wavelength dependence, at least for the cases observed by the ATMOS instrument in the tropics and subtropics during ATLAS 3.

Vertical mixing ratio profiles of four relatively long-lives gases, HCN, C2H2, CO, and C2H6, have been retrieved from 0.01 cm(-1) resolution infrared solar occultation spectra recorded between latitudes of 5.3 degrees N and 31.4 degrees N. The observations were obtained by the Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy (ATMOS) Fourier transform spectrometer during the Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications and Science (ATLAS) 3 shuttle flight, 3-12 November 1994. Elevated mixing ratios below the tropopause were measured for these gases during several of the occultations. The positive correlations obtained between the simultaneously measured mixing ratios suggest that the enhancements are likely the result of surface emissions, most likely biomass burning and/or urban industrial activities, followed by common injection via deep convective transport of the gases to the upper troposphere. The elevated levels of HCN may account for at least part of the "missing NOy" in the upper troposphere. Comparisons of the observations with values measured during a recent aircraft campaign are presented. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. [less ▲]

Partitioning between HCl and ClONO2 and among the main components of the reactive nitrogen family (NO, NO2, HNO3, ClONO2, N2O5, and HO2NO2) has been studied inside and outside the Antarctic stratospheric vortex based on ATMOS profiles measured at sunrise during the 3-12 November 1994 ATLAS-3 Shuttle mission. Elevated mixing ratios of HCl in the lower stratosphere with a peak of similar to 2.9 ppbv (10(-9) parts per volume) were measured inside the vortex near 500 K potential temperature (similar to 19 km). Maximum ClONO2 mixing ratios of similar to 1.2, similar to 1.4, and similar to 0.9 ppbv near 700 K (similar to 25 km) were measured inside, at the edge, and outside the vortex, respectively. Model calculations reproduce the higher levels of HCl and NOx (NO + NO2) inside the lower stratospheric vortex both driven by photochemical processes initiated by low O3. The high HCl at low O3 results from chemical production of HCl via the reaction of enhanced Cl with CH4, limited production of ClONO2, and the descent of inorganic chlorine from higher altitudes.
