L’analyse du cas de Nathan, sorte d’épisode princeps de notre analyse de l’univers carcéral, nous permettra d’étudier les notions de temps et d’espace. Ces deux coordonnées sont fondamentales, tant pour la considération anthropologique de l’homme situation d’enfermement que pour la compréhension psychopathologique. À partir de cette analyse, dans laquelle nous évoquerons notamment un texte peu connu de Sartre sur les Visages ainsi que la philosophie des émotions de Scheler, c’est la problématique fondamentale du corps que nous évoquerons. L’épisode psychopathologique du Gate fever (la « fièvre de la porte ») vécu par Nathan nous permettra également d’évoquer le vécu émotionnel paradoxal de l’expérience psychotique. [less ▲]

Bibliometrics is a growing research field with the main aim of collecting bibliometric information (citations, publications, awards...) to infer valuable rankings or to predict future academic performance. However, most bibliometric approaches are based either on pairwise comparisons of "objects" (authors, funding applications, academics...) with respect to selected "criteria" (publications, citation rate, h-index...), or on modeling observable academic outcomes using observed such criteria. The purpose of this talk is twofold. First, an improvement of the pairwise comparison approach will be outlined on the basis of so-called multicriteria decision aid (MCDA) routines, which will imply an increased flexibility and added freedom for the decision process. Second, we will start a deeper reflexion on possible connections between bibliometrics and psychometrics. Among others, the possibility of modeling latent "academic ability" as outcome of interest, given manifest criteria, will be put to an open discussion and exchange with the listeners [less ▲]

In order to operate an electrical distribution network in a secure and cost-efficient way, it is necessary, due to the rise of renewable energy-based distributed generation, to develop Active Network Management (ANM) strategies. These strategies rely on short-term policies that control the power injected by generators and/or taken of by loads in order to avoid congestion or voltage problems. While simple ANM strategies would curtail the production of generators, more advanced ones would move the consumption of loads to relevant time periods to maximize the potential of renewable energy sources. However, such advanced strategies imply solving large-scale optimal sequential decision-making problems under uncertainty, something that is understandably complicated. In order to promote the development of computational techniques for active network management, we detail a generic procedure for formulating ANM decision problems as Markov decision processes. We also specify it to a 75-bus distribution network. The resulting test instance is available at http://www.montefiore.ulg.ac.be/~anm/ . It can be used as a test bed for comparing existing computational techniques, as well as for developing new ones. A solution technique that consists in an approximate multistage program is also illustrated on the test instance. [less ▲]

In this paper I look at the particular situation of Congolese and Belgian-Congolese citizens in Belgium, the former colonial metropole. From research conducted over ten years within Congolese circles I argue that postcolonial immigrants/citizens have for the last three decades been experiencing a significant social malus. Not only does daily racial discrimination inform and supply it but so also does treatment by the state itself through its various institutions. Looking at some data collected from political, associative and artistic spheres I argue that the Congolese in Belgium have to deal with a postcolonial malus. My research is grounded on a comprehensive anthropology which privileges the actors’ own perspective. I thereby explore the elements, trends or configurations of the post-migratory situation which may be considered inherited from colonialism. Finally, I discuss the reason why despite three decades of “postcolonial activism”, the postcolonial critique is not a live social issue in French-speaking Belgium. [less ▲]

Cette étude exploratoire vise à examiner les variables corrélées aux attitudes positives et négatives à l'égard du mariage (SSM) et des parents de même sexe (SSP) dans trois pays (France, Belgique, Italie) où les personnes LGBT possèdent au moment de l’étude (2012-2013) différents niveaux de reconnaissance de leurs droits civils et parentales. Les attitudes ont été évaluées à travers de questionnaires en ligne chez une cohorte de 11180 participants s’auto-déclarant hétérosexuels résidants en Belgique, France et en Italie : 53% de femmes, 47% des hommes âgés de 18 à 25. Nous avons supposé que les attitudes positives envers les SSM et SSP seraient associées au sexe féminin, à une faible religiosité, à une idéologie politique libérale et à des autres variables comme le contact avec les personnes LGBT. Les résultats confirment que certaines variables sociodémographiques ainsi que le contact et la satisfaction relationnelle avec les personnes LGBT s’associent aux attitudes positives ou négatives. En particulier une plus grande satisfaction dans les relations avec les personnes LGBT s’associe à des attitudes plus positives envers les personnes LGBT en général, le mariage homosexuel et l’homoparentalité. La qualité de la relation semble être plus importante que la quantité dans la prédiction des attitudes positives. Limitations: Les étudiants qui ont participé à l’étude ne sont pas représentatifs de la population générale dans les trois pays. Ils n’ont pas été choisis au hasard parmi toutes les universités de chaque pays, de telle sorte les résultats ne sont pas généralisables à tous les étudiants. [less ▲]

What is the phenomenal structure of our perceptual experiences? In this talk, I suggest that perceptual experiences – like consciousness in general – have a mereological structure, that is, a structure in which the most basic relation is that of parthood. I do not provide any definitive argument for this view. I just want to suggest (i) that the mereological approach is untouched by the usual objections coming from the proponents of the Unified Field Theory (James, Searle, Tye), (ii) that the Unified Field Theory faces some important difficulties of its own.

S’inscrivant dans un contexte complexe, la production architecturale des années 1930 offre un visage bigarré reflétant les bouleversements technologiques, formels, politiques et sociaux d’une société en quête de stabilité. Les innovations de la nouvelle architecture développées au lendemain de la guerre trouvent peu d’écho à Liège. Alors que des personnalités comme Huib Hoste ou Victor Bourgeois se lancent dans un rationalisme d’inspiration internationale, Liège continue de miser sur le régionalisme ou sur le style Beaux-arts. Il faut attendre la fin des années 1920 pour voir apparaître les premiers signes d’une remise en question des principes académiques. La conférence replacera en premier lieu l’architecture au centre du débat culturel. L’analyse de la scène éditoriale liégeoise permettra notamment d’identifier précisément les tensions qui ont animé la scène professionnelle locale et qui ont largement débordé du cadre restreint de l’architecture. Au niveau de la production, l’exposé abordera plusieurs typologies qui ont marqué les années 1930 comme le logement social, l’habitation unifamiliale, l’immeuble à appartements ou les infrastructures publiques.

Pasqualini’s syndrome: hypoandrogenism with spermatogenesis Pasqualini and Bur published the first case of eunuchoidism with preserved spermatogenesis in 1950 in Revista de la Asociación Médica Argentina. The hypoandrogenism with spermatogenesis syndrome included: (a) eunuchoidism, (b) testis with normal spermatogenesis and full volume, with mature spermatozoids in a high proportion of seminiferous tubes and undifferentiated and immature Leydig cells (c) full functional compensation through the administration of chorionic gonadotropin hormone, while hCG is administered (d) total urinary gonadotrophins within normal limits (e) this definition supposes the normal activity of the pituitary and the absence of congenital malformations in general. A first step in the understanding of the physiopathogeny of Pasqualini syndrome or the so called “fertile eunuch" syndrome was the absence of LH in plasma and urine of patients. The second breakthrough was the functional and genetic studies that validated the hypothesis of a functional deficit of LH in these men: it will then also be described in some women. Different groups including ours demonstrated in these cases a LH with varying degrees of immunological activity but biologically inactive in most of the patients, due to one or more inactivating mutations in the LHB gene. Finally, the full comprehension of Pasqualini syndrome allowed to reverse the hypoandrogenic phenotype and to restore fertility in these patients through the use of chorionic gonadotropin and the modern in-vitro fertility techniques. This conference is an historical review and a tribute to the memory of Rodolfo Q. Pasqualini. [less ▲]

Le recyclage n'est pas un luxe ou une mode mais une nécessité, qui provient d'une constatation fort simple : nous vivons dans un monde limité. Contrairement à ce que nous avons cru fort longtemps, notre activité humaine n'est pas infiniment développable, car bornée en termes d'énergie, de ressources naturelles, d'espace ou simplement de capacité d'adaptation de la nature. De cette constatation et de cette prise de conscience doit découler un comportement qui, essentiellement, est basé sur le respect que nous avons de nous-mêmes et donc de la nature (à ménager et non à aménager). Le recyclage, la réutilisation, le réemploi, la régénération ou la valorisation sont des comportements qui visent à minimiser l'énergie utilisée, à tirer un parti maximum des matériaux, à réduire les risques de pollution au moment de la fabrication, de l'utilisation ou de l'élimination de ces matériaux. D'une manière générale, cela signifie que l'on cherche à retarder le plus possible le moment où un objet devient un déchet. Cette démarche nécessite une vision d'ensemble de la vie du matériau ou de l'objet (Analyse du Cycle de Vie), au cours de laquelle un bilan est établi à chaque étape de vie - extraction des matières premières, fabrication, transformation, recyclage, élimination. Complémentairement aux matériaux dits « naturels » ou d’origine végétale, l’industrie de la construction intègre de plus en plus ces matériaux alternatifs, non sans quelques réticences psychologiques, normatives et techniques. Source de pollution importante (CO2, déchets solides, ..), la construction constitue aussi un réservoir majeur pour la valorisation de déchets et de sous-produits industriels : à côté de la filière traditionnelle de production des matériaux de construction et de la résurgence des matériaux bio-sourcés, les matériaux recyclés contribuent également au développement des matériaux du futur.

Since Greece is a linguistically closed domain, translations of literary texts exist only for utilitarian aims and appear mainly in the peripheral areas, such as Egypt, where the contacts between languages and civilizations are close. As a result the Greek meta-language for translating is relatively poor and appears late in the history of the Greek language (especially during the Hellenistic and Roman periods). First, the family of ἑρμηνεύς (ἑρμηνεία, ἑρμηνεύω) designates the most genuine process of translation and involves a technical and scientific precision. We find mentions of interpreters (ἑρμηνεῖς) in Herodot and Xenophon. Translation is also considered from another point of view: ἑρμηνεύς is also the prophet. Indeed, the verb ἑρμηνεύω involves not only a translation but also an explication of the text. On the other hand, in classical Greek, the most generic and most widespread verb for translating is μεταφέρω. There are a lot of other compound verbs with the prefix μετα- (“change”) with different uses and senses: μεταβάλλω, μεταγράφω, μεταφράζω. The situation in Rome is quite different. It is not exaggerated to say that Rome is a civilization of translation. The first literary works in Latin are translations of Greek models. Throughout the history of Latin literature, from Livius Andronicus until Boethius, there have been translators. On the other hand, there is no theory of translation among the classical Latin authors. The only classical Latin author who presents such a theory is Cicero in a passage of the short treatise De optimo genere oratorum (14-15) written in 46 BCE. In this text, which can be considered one of the first theoretical writings on translation, Cicero uses some verbs and expressions meaning “to translate”. Cicero conceives translation according to two different points of view expressed by two Latin words: interpres/orator. The term interpres (in the etymological sense of “broker”) is to be understood in a neutral sense: it points out the translator as a simple intermediary who gives exact correspondence between the words from one language to another without taking into account the sense of the whole sentence or text. On the other hand, orator has a positive connotation. Cicero increases the importance of the activity of the orator because he tries not to replace one word with another, but instead to conserve two characteristics of the words, genus and uis. This theory will be developed by Christian authors, like Hieronymus, who translates the Bible. As a result, the Latin verbs to say “translate” are generally based on metaphors: a linear movement from one point to another (interpretari from interpres) to designate the literality of the translation, and a circular one (uertere), as in sanskrit vŗt “to turn”, for the liberty of the translator orator who translates, but also creates a new literary work.

Many countries and regions in Europe are nowadays setting up biobased economy strategies and action plans. For Belgium, the case of the Walloon region is discussed in this talk through a SWOT analysis. Even if a large part of the territory is covered by agricultural and forestry productions, the feedstock supply and availability are rather restricted. However, in order to stimulate the development of biorefineries in the Walloon region, it is important to support a reliable upstream supply chain. Therefore, several options are currently evaluated by the government, the industrial sectors and academic/research centers and presented herein through several pilot, R&D or industrial initiatives.

Scientists in many fields of research have developed models, theories and concepts attempting to grasp and manage dangers that are often difficult to concretely imagine. Their final objective is to maintain or improve the safety of the system considered. In this respect, the risk-based and the vulnerability-based approaches are different, yet complementary. After presenting the main forms taken by vulnerability approaches in the scientific literature, we elaborate on the potential of “opening-up” such an analysis through the use of a Science and Technology Studies (STS) vulnerability-based approach. We then present results from case studies concerning emergency planning, on the one hand, and an analysis of the perception of the REX system of SCK•CEN, on the other hand. We demonstrate how such an approach contributes to shed light on under-explored aspects of safety and provides a nuanced perspective on actual safety practices. As a conclusion, we propose further work directions to be followed. [less ▲]

Dans cette présentation, nous défendrons une démarche d’évaluation clinique qui favorise la formulation d’une interprétation psychologique individualisée, prenant en compte la co-occurrence de difficultés psychologiques différentes, le caractère plurifactoriel de ces difficultés et l’hétérogénéité des mécanismes psychologiques qui les sous-tendent. Cette démarche d’évaluation implique d’examiner différents types de processus psychologiques (cognitifs, affectifs, motivationnels, relationnels, identitaires) et d’intégrer leur contribution respective dans une interprétation psychologique cohérente, conduisant en outre à l’identification du rôle des facteurs sociaux, situationnels et biologiques. Dans ce contexte, l’intervention psychologique devrait être taillée sur mesure en fonction des dysfonctionnements psychologiques spécifiques de la personne et devrait comporter plusieurs facettes d’intervention complémentaires, focalisées sur différents processus psychologiques. Nous illustrerons cette approche de l’évaluation et de l’intervention dans différents domaines des difficultés psychologiques (symptômes dépressifs, apathie chez les personnes âgées, insertion sociale chez les personnes ayant reçu un diagnostic de schizophrénie, difficultés de couple).

Nous voudrions d’abord revenir sur de fausses évidences attachées aux différences entre pratique clinique et recherche. Nous sommes convaincu que la complexité, la rigueur, l’efficacité, voire une hypothétique véracité ne se situent pas, par nature et par principe, uniquement du côté de la recherche fondamentale au détriment d’une pratique clinique qui serait plus intuitive et moins rigoureuse. Nous proposerons ensuite un modèle de recherche directement inscrit dans le paradigme clinique. La psychopathologie phénoménologique, courant émergeant dans la littérature internationale, se caractérise par deux influences majeures : d’une part l’héritage de la réflexion de la philosophie et, d’autre part, elle trouve ses fondements – ses données pourrions-nous dire – dans l’observation de l’homme en situation, c’est-à-dire dans cette pratique clinique. Nous prendrons pour exemples différentes psychopathologies (schizophrénie, anorexie, psychopathie) qui nous permettront de suggérer que la compréhension du patient, et la rencontre de sa subjectivité et de sa sensation, ne peut se limiter à la recherche fondamentale et faire l’économie d’une phénoménologie clinique. Enfin, nous conclurons sur la nécessité d’un regard réciproque à poser entre les connaissances issues des protocoles de recherche en laboratoire et le savoir émergeant de la pratique clinique et de la rencontre de l’homme en situation.

Les référentiels de compétences promus par l'ARES, le décret « paysage », ses unités d’apprentissage et ses trajectoires flexibles sont autant de changements qui questionnent aujourd’hui les équipes éducatives. Comment se rendre compte que l’on évalue bien des compétences et non des acquis d’apprentissage plus morcelés ? Comment évaluer la complexité sans risque d’une trop large subjectivité ? Comment rendre l’évaluation plus collégiale, en cohérence avec la notion d’unités d’apprentissage ? L’exposé proposera un cadre théorique, identifiera quelques enjeux majeurs pour les enseignants et ébauchera, en les illustrant, quelques réponses possibles à ces défis. [less ▲]

In 2013, the Hungarian writer Terézia Mora was awarded the German Book Prize for her novel "Das Ungeheuer" (The Monster). Her text contrasts with other more current and popular novels in terms of thematic content, textual form, and book design. As such, "Das Ungeheuer" does not really fit into the range of "technically properly narrated" literature that used to be awarded with the prize. Usually, the laureates of the German Book Prize were so-called "Familienromane" (family novels), a currently very popular genre. By honouring Mora, the jury attempted to increase and preserve the prestige of the young literary prize (awarded since 2005) that is based on the model of the French Prix Goncourt and the English Booker Prize. The German Book Prize had quickly fallen into disrepute with the German literary critics who characterize the Book Prize as a "sheer marketing prize" because it comes along with high ranks in German bestseller lists and many foreign rights sales for its laureates. As a new award, the German Book Prize has to position itself in the literary field. A detailed analysis of the prize and its laureates therefore allows us to observe how the struggle for prestige develops today and to consider the question whether "attention" can be considered a new form of capital that competes with Bourdieu's symbolic capital, or a variant form of symbolic capital in the current media-drenched (literary) society. In order to find an answer to this question I am going to confront the marketing and transfer strategies as well as the literary reception of the novels "Die Mittagsfrau" by Julia Franck (laureate in 2007) and "Das Ungeheuer" by Terézia Mora.

At any point in time, human performance results from the interaction of two main factors: a circadian signal varying with the time of the day and the sleep need accrued throughout the preceding waking period. But what’s happen at the cortical cerebral level? We used a novel technique coupling transcranial magnetic stimulation with electroencephalography (TMS/EEG) to assess the influence of time spent awake and circadian phasis on human cortical excitability. Twenty-two healthy young men underwent 8 TMS/EEG sessions during a 28 hour sleep deprivation protocole. We found that cortical excitability depends on both time spent awake and circadian phasis.

Landscape infrastructures are numerous. They can be hedgerows, woodlands or wildflower strips. They are known to provide ecosystem services such as reducing soil erosion and nutrient leaching or support biodiversity conservation. They may also help to biologically control pests. But conclusions of research papers are not unanimous about the positive effect of wildflower strips to control pests in fields. The cause may be the type of flower mixes sown in fields. In this context, the concept of functional diversity may be useful to constitute flower mixes that better enhance biological control. [less ▲]

What can immigrants do for non-migrant relatives in their home country who need healthcare they cannot afford? To answer this question, we first examine four existing methods that can be found in the existing literature: mobility, remittances, workers’ health insurance and diasporic health insurance. In the second part of the paper, we discuss an innovative strategy called “transnational health insurance” (THI). These insurance schemes are set up by immigrants in cooperation with a multitude of actors including health insurance companies in destination countries and healthcare providers in countries origin. THIs offer health coverage to non-migrant relatives in the home country based on a premium paid directly by immigrants to the insurance company in their country of residence. Analyzing the creation and implementation of Belgian-Congolese THIs, we discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these schemes in responding to the needs of both immigrants and their non-migrant relatives. The article concludes with a discussion on the specificities of THIs as hybrid forms of remittances. [less ▲]

In 2001, an interdisciplinary team, composed of 22 scientists, developed a methodology aiming at analyzing problems of water resources in Vallée du Draa (Morocco). The issue was studied through 4 points of view: (i) disponibility of water, according to a hydrogeological evaluation of the region, (ii) mechanic, technic and physic access to water, taking into account political, cultural and financial sovereign, allowing to guarantee access to water at the levels of nation, region, locality, family and individual, (iii) quality of water and its evolution – rainy, superficial, underground, residual water, water for agriculture and breeding, (IV) efficiency and profitability of water. Water needs appeared to be higher that available resources. Rainy and superficial water supplies appeared to be weak and poorly distributed in time. Strong seasonal change in the level of phreatic layer suggested an overexploitation of aquifers. Valleys were characterized by sedimentation of irrigation canals, exploitation of underground water, remoteness and dispersion of agricultural areas. Social and gender equitability in water distribution and access were poor, leading to desertion and emigration. Water quality was considered as poor. It can be concluded that palm groves allows populations to maintain in an area. Sustainability of the system depend on water access, water quality and profitability. Survival of the system depends on irrigation, rights to water access, and presence of water of quality. [less ▲]

Afin de mesurer au mieux un paramètre, il faut préalablement connaître son identité. Concernant la métrologie de la pollution olfactive, toute la difficulté réside dans la particularité de cette pollution. En effet, bien qu’associée à la pollution de l’air par les molécules volatiles qui la génèrent, elle en diffère par son effet sensoriel. Il va de soi que la pollution olfactive n’a de sens que par son odeur. Chaque individu a son propre odorat et dès lors sa propre interprétation de l’odeur. C’est cette subjectivité qui rend cette pollution si délicate à qualifier et à quantifier et qui la distingue de la pollution de l’air. De plus, contrairement à d’autres pollutions sensorielles de type sonore ou visuel, l’élément porteur ’est pas dans ce cas une grandeur physique telle que la longueur d’onde électromagnétique ou la variation de pression mais une grandeur physico-chimique particulière dont la mesure est beaucoup plus complexe. Un dictionnaire de langue française définit l’odeur comme « une émanation volatile, caractéristique de certains corps et susceptible de provoquer chez l’homme ou chez un animal des sensations dues à l’excitation d’organes spécialisés ». Cette définition de l’odeur met notamment en jeu deux disciplines : la chimie et la physiologie. En effet un chimiste pourrait présenter l’odeur comme un ensemble de molécules aux propriétés spécifiques qui inhalées par un individu génère une réaction, il s’intéresserait dès lors aux odorants alors qu’un physiologiste parlerait plutôt du stimulus induit par ces odorants et des mécanismes qui le provoquent au niveau des organes. Le traitement de l’information olfactive par le cerveau, la perception olfactive, conduit à plusieurs types de sensation. En effet, l’odeur perçue a trois grandes particularités : l’intensité, la qualité (ou la nature de l’odeur) et la tonalité hédonique ou affective (agrément/désagrément). A ces trois dimensions, il faut ajouter le caractère temporel du stimulus, dimension très utilisée dans le cadre de la pollution olfactive. [less ▲]

The life goal of constructing Transnational Artistic Careers might open up transnational opportunities for some migrant women who wish to participate in today’s global cities cultural domains. This paper is based on my first observations in the field as a PhD student through, which I encountered complex dynamics of Latin American and Gender identities constructions, both among my participants and myself. Therefore, drawing from a transnational and cosmopolitan practices perspectives, through this paper I refer to Transnational Artistic Careers that served the women invoked in my analysis, to develop cosmopolitan skills and competencies by which they develop multiple forms of identification. These competencies I will argue served these women as a tool to find recognition as well as to express, a sense of belonging that extended beyond ethnic categorizations deployed by more hegemonic perspectives. These women described themselves as the entrepreneurs of their own careers, which later helped them to engage in Cosmopolitan Sociabilities that ultimately served them to develop alternative representations of how they ultimately wanted to be known by “others”. By aiming to discover different forms of Transnational Artistic Careers and Cosmopolitan Sociabilities this paper, focuses on the agency by which these women contested, resisted and empowered themselves against racialized, and ethnicized global hierarchies of power.

The aurora at Saturn represents a direct manifestation of the interaction between the planet’s surrounding space environment and its upper atmosphere. Our understanding of this interaction has greatly improved over the past decade, as a result of both in-situ and remote sensing of the aurora by Cassini, as well as through Earth-based observations. On Earth, the interaction is dominated by the connection between the magnetosphere and the Solar Wind, with opening and closing of magnetic field lines leading to sporadic aurora that are strongly controlled by changes in the solar wind. On Jupiter, internal plasma sources combine with a rotationally-dominated magnetosphere to produce intense currents associated with the breakdown in co-rotation in the magnetosphere, producing powerful and continuous aurora. Investigations into Saturn’s aurora have shown that the overall morphology changes dramatically with the arrival of compressions in the solar wind, suggesting a strong interaction with the solar wind at Earth. However, the varying rotation rate of Saturn’s magnetosphere, first identified by measurements of Saturn’s radio emission, can also be measured in many aspects of the auroral emission. This in turn suggests a degree of rotational control within the aurora. As such, the better we understanding the relative strength of these influences on the aurora of Saturn, the more we can understand how the magnetosphere interacts the planet and how, in turn, the planet drives changes in the magnetosphere. Here, we will present observations of the auroral emission directly produced by particles precipitating into Saturn’s atmosphere (radio emission), the resultant atmospheric auroral excitation this produces within of atomic hydrogen (UV and visible emission) and molecular hydrogen (UV emission), as well as thermal emission from both ions produced through auroral ionization and neutral species heated within the auroral region (IR emission). These observations show a wide variety of different auroral features ranging from the rotational pole, though the main auroral emission and down to latitudes where Saturn’s atmosphere interacts with Enceladus. Observations at these different wavelength, when compared and contrasted, reveal details about the particle precipitation process that drive them, as well as the affect these currents have on the surrounding neutral atmosphere. In-situ measurements by Cassini of the particles and magnetic field above the polar region allow us to measure and understand the field-aligned currents that produce the aurora. In comparing these currents with the auroral emission at the foot of these field lines, it is possible to understand the magnetospheric origin for Saturn’s auroral emission, as well as understanding the two-way interaction between the atmosphere and magnetosphere that is driven though the currents that produce this aurora.

We will present highlights of the auroral images, showing a variety of morphologies, including multiple arcs, spiral forms, polar cusp activity, and rotating emission features, some of them pulsating with a roughly 1-hour period. A satellite footprint of Enceladus is occasionally visible. [less ▲]
