A new thunnosaurian from the Kurdistan region of Iraq represents the first post-Triassic ichthyosaur from the Middle East. The specimen is an articulated partial skeleton that includes a partial skull, complete left forefin, partial ribcage and anterior section of the vertebral column. Associated palynomorphs uncontroversially date the specimen (preserved on a loose slab of matrix) to the late Hauterivian- Barremian interval of the Early Cretaceous. A posterior projection on the humerus, short and trapezoidal humerus, enlarged intermedium, and trapezoidal cervical and anterior dorsal neural spines represent autapomorphies. Forefin morphology is archaic: the carpals, metacarpals and phalanges form a mosaic similar to that of Triassic-Early Jurassic parvipelvians, accessory digits are absent, and notching is present on the leading edge of the first digit. These and other characters indicate exclusion of the Iraq ichthyosaur from Ophthalmosauridae, the only ichthyosaur clade currently known from the Cretaceous. A phylogenetic analysis of Parvipelvia – the largest yet produced – recovers the new taxon as the sister- taxon of Ichthyosaurus communis, thereby invoking a ghost-lineage of over 60 million years. Inclusion of the new taxon in analyses produced by other authors also resulted in exclusion from Ophthalmosauridae, though relationships with other neoichthyosaurians are less resolved than in our analysis. We conclude that the new taxon represents a highly conservative relict – a member of the Ichthyosaurus lineage – that retained an ‘Early Jurassic’ grade of pectoral anatomy into the Cretaceous. Ophthalmosauridae and members of the Ichthyosaurus lineage therefore both persisted beyond the Jurassic. Clearly, both have highly contrasting evolutionary histories and Cretaceous ichthyosaurs do not all represent members of the same evolutionary radiation. The Iraq ichthyosaur is one of several new taxa originally worked on by the late Robert M. Appleby. An inability to resolve conflicting views on the age of the specimen, combined with other issues, derailed his plans to publish on this specimen during the 1970s. [less ▲]

Cretaceous ichthyosaurs have typically been considered a small, homogeneous assemblage sharing a common Late Jurassic ancestor. Their low diversity and disparity have been interpreted as indicative of a decline leading to their Cenomanian extinction. We describe the first post-Triassic ichthyosaur from the Middle East, Malawania anachronus gen. et sp. nov. from the Early Cretaceous of Iraq, and re-evaluate the evolutionary history of parvipelvian ichthyosaurs via phylogenetic and cladogenesis rate analyses. Malawania represents a basal grade in thunnosaurian evolution that arose during a major Late Triassic radiation event and was previously thought to have gone extinct during the Early Jurassic. Its pectoral morphology appears surprisingly archaic, retaining a forefin architecture similar to that of its Early Jurassic relatives. After the initial latest Triassic radiation of early thunnosaurians, two subsequent large radiations produced lineages with Cretaceous representatives, but the radiation events themselves are pre-Cretaceous. Cretaceous ichthyosaurs therefore include distantly related lineages, with contrasting evolutionary histories, and appear more diverse and disparate than previously supposed. [less ▲]

This study attempts to characterise the chemical weathering of basalts and to quantify the flux of carbon transferred from the atmosphere to the ocean during this major process at the surface of the Earth. To this aim, we have compiled different published chemical compositions of small rivers draining basalts. Basaltic river waters are characterised by relatively high Na-normalized molar ratios (Ca/Na: 0.2-3.9; HCO3/Na: 1-10; Mg/Na: 0.15-6) in comparison with those usually observed for river draining silicates. The data also show the climatic influence on basalt weathering and associated CO2 consumption. Runoff and temperature are the main parameters controlling the chemical weathering rate and derived CO2 consumption during basaltic weathering. From these relationships and digital maps, we are able to define the contribution of basalts to the global silicate flux. Taking account of this result, we estimate that the CO2 flux consumed by chemical weathering of basalts is about 4.08 x 10(12) mol/year. The fluxes from the islands of Indonesia and regions of central America represent around 40% of this flux. The global flux of CO2 consumed by chemical weathering of basalts represents between 30% and 35% of the flux derived from continental silicate determined by Gaillardet et al. [Chem. Geol. 159 (1999) 3]. Finally, it appears that volcanic activity not only acts as a major atmospheric CO2 source, but also creates strong CO2 sinks that cannot be neglected to better understand the geochemical and climatic evolution of the Earth.

The Siberian Traps represent one of the most voluminous continental flood basalt provinces on Earth. The mass extinction at the end of the Permian was the most severe in the history of life. In the present paper, these two major concurrent events that occurred are analysed and a geochemical model coupled with an energy balance model is used to calculate their environmental impact on atmospheric CO2, oceanic delta(13)C, and marine anoxia. The latitudinal temperature gradient is reduced relative to today, resulting in warmer temperatures at high latitudes. The warmer climate and the presence of fresh basaltic provinces increase the weatherability of the continental surfaces, resulting in an enhanced consumption of atmospheric CO2 through weathering. First, the eruption of the Siberian traps is accompanied by a massive volume of C-13 depleted CO2 degassed from the mantle and added to the ocean through silicate weathering, thus lowering marine delta(13)C. Second, the rapid collapse in productivity induces a strong decrease in the global organic carbon burial. This too tends to increase the proportion of light carbon in the ocean. These two effects can explain the low delta(13)C values across the PT boundary, and methane release need not be invoked to explain the delta(13)C fluctuations. It is proposed that the phosphorus cycle, which drives primary production in the model, plays an important role on the recovery of productivity and the delta(13)C variations.

Le but de cet article est de fournir de façon exhaustive l'ensemble des relations qui permettent le calcul des transferts thermiques dans une tour de refroidissemenmt à contrecourant et à tirage naturel. L'article se base sur les approches classiques décrites dans la littérature (Merkel, Chilton, Braun, ...), mais en uniformisant les symboles et les unités, de façon à fournir en un seul texte tous les éléments qui permettent de modéliser, pour des besoins de contrôle ou de dimensionnement, une tour de refroidissement et d'en estimer les performances.Quelques pratiques d'utilisation de ces relations sont étudiées, ainsi qu'une confrontation de différentes méthodes de résolution sur un même exemple.

The chapter of J. Banks, P. Diamond and J. Mirrlees (BDM) presents an excellent survey of the existing literature on optimal taxation and discusses a number of lessons that can be drawn from that literature. One of the main lessons on which their chapter focuses concerns the treatment of capital income. The authors argue that the finding that the optimal income tax schedule should not include tax on capital is based on too many restrictions, and is thus not robust for policy purposes. Another lesson is that taxation should vary with age. Not having any quarrel with these two points, I would like in this comment to discuss a number of points too quickly dealt with or deliberately neglected by BDM. They concern the issue of tagging, the problem raised by having more than one unobservable characteristic (besides ability), the issue of myopia and prodigality, the question of equal opportunities, the taxation of couples and the threat of tax competition [less ▲]

This paper describes the behaviour of the base plate in bending and the anchor bolts in tension, which are the major components of a base plate connection. An analytical model has been derived to predict the component characteristics – the resistance and the stiffness. A description is given of how the behaviour is influenced by contact between the base plate and the concrete surface. The presented analytical model has been verified by tests and a finite element simulation. [less ▲]
