Solar absorption measurements using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometry carry information about the atmospheric abundances of many constituents, including information about their vertical distributions in the troposphere and the stratosphere. Such observations have regularly been made since many years as a contribution to the NDSC (Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change). They are the only ground-based remote sensing observations available nowadays that carry information about key atmospheric trace species in the free troposphere, among which the most important greenhouse gases. The European UFTIR project (Time series of Upper Free Troposphere observations from a European ground-based FTIR network, http://www.nilu.no/uftir) has focused on maximizing the information content of FTIR long-term monitoring data of some direct and indirect greenhouse gases (CH4, N2O, O3,HCFC-22, and CO and C2H6, respectively). The UFTIR network includes six NDSC stations in Western Europe, covering the polar to subtropical regions. At several stations of the network, the observations span more than a decade. Existing spectral time series have been reanalyzed according to a common optimized retrieval strategy, in order to derive distinct tropospheric and stratospheric abundances of the abovementioned target gases. A bootstrap resampling method has been implemented to evaluate trends of the tropospheric and total burdens of the target gases, including their uncertainties. In parallel, simulations of the target time series have been made with the Oslo CTM2 model: comparisons between the model results and the observations provide valuable information to improve the model, and in particular, to optimize emission estimates that are used as inputs to the model simulations, and to explain the observed trends. The final results of the project will be presented, and ways to proceed will be discussed. [less ▲]

The objective of the present study was to compare transrectal ultrasonography and pregnancy associated glycoprotein (PAG) tests for determination of pregnancy in 72 Holstein-Friesian heifers imported from Holland to Croatia. All heifers came to Croatia with written confirmation of pregnancy. During caranteen we preformed rectal and ultrasound exploration of heifers and simultaneously collected blood samples from each heifer. PAG concentrations were determined by a RIA immunoassay using bovine PAG 67 KDa as a tracer and standard. In our study 68 heifers were confirmed to be pregnant by both methods and 4 cows were confirmed for abortion by PAG test and nonpregnant according to ultrasound checking. Transrectal ultrasonography is accurate test for pregnancy diagnosis in pregnant heifers but it is impossible to say only on basis of ultrasound examination if heifers conceived and aborted or they failed to conceive in the first place. PAG RIA test is not only highly accurate and reliable method to distinguish between pregnant and nonpregnant heifers on the market. It is also useful to determine whether heifers were pregnant and embryo died and was absorbed during the transfer or heifers failed to conceive. It is possible because level of PAG persists in circulation after abortion or embrional death. In doubtful cases it can be used as a proof of pregnancy existence in heifers later confirmed to be nonpregnant. [less ▲]

We present our recent results on using previously introduced framework for multi-area security assessment in large interconnections. The basic idea of the framework is exchanging just enough information so that each operator can evaluate the impact in his control area of contingencies both internal and external to his area. We provide illustrations based on a localization concept known as efficient bounding method and recently introduced approximate DC model of the European interconnected system. In this paper we focus on four transmission system operators (within the approximate DC model): Belgium, France, Germany, and Netherlands (for both Summer and Winter-peak load conditions). [less ▲]

Water solutions of different dyes used in textile industry (Reactive Black 5, Acid Orange 7 and Disperse Yellow 5) were treated under laboratory conditions by means of different microorganisms or their metabolites. The following organisms were used in this study: Bacillus megatherium, B.subtilus, B.circulans, activated sludge from industrial w. w. teratment plant and a mixed enriched culture of flocculating bacteria. It was find out that the microbial effect towards the dyes was quite specific and the extent of colour removal varied in broad range. Very good results were achieved also by means of permeable reactive barriers inhabitated by flocculating bacteria and other independent microorganisms and operating under continuous flow conditions. The colour removal in these case varied in the range of about 80 - 90 % and was similar to that achieved by the well known chemical reagents used in the textile industry. [less ▲]

A discontinuous Galerkin framework for large deformations of solids is established. The method is based on a general Hu-Washizu-de Veubeke functional allowing for displacement and stress discontinuities in the domain interior. The focus of this paper is on the treatment of large elasto-plastic deformations. The method is shown to possess the required numerical properties: consistency in the non-linear range and linearized stability. In order to demonstrate the versatility, accuracy and robustness of the method examples of application and convergence studies in three dimensions are provided. Further developments of the method will lead to applications where physical discontinuities must be modeled like fragmentation or failure. [less ▲]

Testosterone (T) influences the volume and cellular characteristics of a variety of steroid-dependent brain nuclei in many vertebrates. In castrated quail, the volume of the sexually dimorphic (males > females) medial preoptic nucleus (POM), a key area in the control of male sexual behavior, is markedly increased by T but previous studies always assessed this effect after a period of 8-14 days and its specific time-course was unknown. We recently found that following treatment with T, the POM volume increases in a time-dependent fashion: a significant increase was already detected after only one day and the response reached it maximum (volume doubling) after 14 days of treatment. This however raised the question of the cellular mechanism underlying such a rapid brain plasticity (increase in cell size, neuropil volume, dendritic branching, extracellular space?). To research whether a change in extra- vs. intra-cellular space could be responsible for the rapid T-induced increase in POM volume, we repeatedly analyzed by in vivo diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) the brain of castrated male quail before as well as after 1, 2, 7 and 14 days of T implantation. MRI was performed on a 7T-system (Bruker) using a multislice diffusion weighted-spin echo sequence. Coronal slices with an image resolution of 100*100*500µm³ were obtained covering the whole telencephalon. Images were accurately coregistered allowing voxel-wise paired comparisons of the ADC data between the different time periods. The ADC significantly increased after one day of T treatment (696±16 vs 758±30 µm²/s, p=0.011, N=5) in POM and this effect apparently persisted during the whole experiment. By contrast, T insensitive regions like the nucleus rotundus (586±170 vs 511±26 µm²/s, p-value=0.24) and nucleus mesencephalicus lateralis, pars dorsalis (934±107 vs 911±64 µm²/s, p=0.68) were not affected after the first day nor later in the experiment. These data indicate that T increases the extracellular water volume in POM specifically, either as a result of cell shrinkage or of an increase in the space between cells, and that changes in the ratio of extra- to intra-cellular water mediate, at least in part, the fast plasticity of the POM volume observed after exposure to T.

The role of corticosterone on the hippocampal structure and function is well documented in male rats. More recently research has shown that chronically stressed female rats with elevated corticosterone levels, exhibit significant dendritic alterations in the hippocampus and, paradoxically, enhanced learning and memory performance. Similar changes have been shown with first reproductive experience (primiparity) compared to further reproductive experience (multiparity). We have shown that at the time of weaning, primiparous rats exhibit altered hippocampal morphology (Pawluski and Galea, 2006), decreased hippocampal cell survival (Pawluski and Galea 2006), and improved reference memory performance (Pawluski et al, 2006) compared to multiparous and virgin female rats. Therefore, given the similarities to what has been shown in the chronically stressed virgin female rat, it seems plausible that corticosterone may play an active role in mediating the alterations seen in primiparous rats. The present study aimed to investigate whether there are differences in the level of free circulating corticosterone during late pregnancy and the postpartum period with reproductive experience. Total corticosterone and corticosteroid-binding capacity were assayed from serum in five groups of rats; multiparous, primiparous, pregnant-only, pup-exposed virgins, and nulliparous rats on 6 days (2 days during gestation: days 14 and 19, and 4 days during lactation; days 1, 5, 14, and 21, where applicable). Results show that total corticosterone level on postpartum day 1 was significantly elevated compared to all other days. In addition, primiparous and multiparous rats have significantly lower corticosteroid-binding capacity throughout lactation. This suggests that primiparous and multiparous rats have more free-circulating corticosterone during lactation. Further research is needed to determine the mechanism underlying the changes in hippocampal structure and function with primiparity. [less ▲]

YBa2Cu3O7-δ thick films have been deposited onto Ag substrates by the Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD) technique. Different microstructures and electrical behaviours were observed depending on the starting powder. Coatings prepared from commercial powder displayed significant porosity and the superconducting transition width was found to be magnetic-field dependent. Films produced from home-made coprecipitated powder are denser but contain some secondary phases. No dependence of the resistive transition as a function of magnetic field (H ≤ 20 Oe) was observed in that case. [less ▲]

Même si elles peuvent contribuer de manière très spectaculaire à la maîtrise de la qualité microbiologique des aliments, les techniques de conservation elles-mêmes ne sont pourtant qu’un moyen de maîtrise parmi d’autres… Deux facteurs principaux sont tout simplement la qualité initiale –en particulier la qualité microbiologique- des aliments ou des ingrédients qui les constituent et l’hygiène observée au cours de leur production, de leur transformation et de leur distribution. De plus, un effet « obstacle » n’est reproductible que dans des conditions précises, par exemple pour ce qui concerne le nombre de microorganismes, la composition de l’aliment, les conditions d’ambiance, etc… Une technique de conservation doit donc être validée dans des conditions données (p.ex. par validation de la durée de vie microbiologique permettant d’estimer la D.L.C. d’un produit). Toute modification de ces conditions ne permet plus de garantir la maîtrise de la qualité microbiologique. Il convient par ailleurs d’évaluer l’effet d’une contamination accidentelle de la denrée par un microorganisme pathogène, au cours de sa production, de sa transformation ou de sa distribution (test de croissance après inoculation artificielle de la denrée, encore appelé « challenge testing »). L’établissement et le respect de critères microbiologiques, de bonnes pratiques de fabrication et de procédures d’assurance qualité sont des points clés de la maîtrise de la qualité et de la sécurité sanitaire des aliments. Des progrès significatifs sont en cours et sont encore attendus dans les prochaines années. [less ▲]

Les débats médiatiques sur la mondialisation s’articulent autour de deux thèses apparemment antagonistes.

Les chefs de file syndicaux et dirigeants réformistes de l’« altermondialisme », entendent, quant à eux, défendre, bec et ongles, l’idée d’un personnel politique victime de la bourse et des pressions de divers lobbies industriels et financiers. Dans les deux cas pourtant, on procède à une dissociation artificielle et trompeuse de l’économique et du politique. Cette représentation dominante de la mondialisation est à l’origine d’une censure, celle qui, derrière le paravent de l’Etat « victime » ou « bourreau » des marchés, refuse la parole aux critiques dénonçant les liens organiques entre pouvoirs économique, politique et médiatique.

Poly(epsilon-caprolactone) foams were prepared, via a batch process, by using supercritical CO(2) as foaming agent. Their porous structure was characterized through helium and mercury pycnometry, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray microtomography observations coupled with image analysis. The pore size distributions obtained by these two latter techniques show that the pore structure is more homogeneous when the foaming process is performed under a high CO(2) saturation pressure (higher than 250 bars).

Data has been collected for selected strong magnetic storms during which auroras were seen from ground at middle- and low-latitudes as reported by amateur observers all over the world Auroral reports from ground were compared with auroral images from space Timed Image Polar and in situ measurements of plasma and magnetic electric fields in the disturbed inner magnetosphere A new version of the Weimer2005 electric potential model gives the boundary that defines the low-latitude edge of both the convection electric field and the magnetic perturbation due to the field-aligned currents We tried to find out whether it is possible to predict auroral oval position during strong magnetic storms using this improved ionospheric electrodynamic model A quite good compatibility between FAC pattern and oval position has been found This suggests that during strong magnetic storm Weimer2005 FAC model may be used to predict equatorward boundary of the auroral oval We also compared the observed low-latitude oval boundaries with projections of Alfven layer for plasma sheet electrons Particle trajectories were traced using T04 s magnetic field model and Weimer 2005 electric field model for given solar wind conditions Results will be discussed [less ▲]

A West Florida Shelf (WFS) model based on the Regional Ocean Model System (ROMS) is nested in the 1/12° North Atlantic Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (NAT HYCOM). The nesting procedure is based on a flow relaxation scheme, and the model implementation is tested against in situ data over a one-year hindcast simulation. While the focus of NAT HYCOM is the large-scale circulation, the aim of this study is to show that the NAT HYCOM results can be improved by nesting a regional model with increased resolution. Results are compared qualitatively to sea surface height and quantitatively to in situ temperature and velocity measurements on the shelf. The nesting of a regional model improves the performance on the shelf. The inclusion of tides is a new addition, and preliminary results are shown. [less ▲]

On assiste actuellement en Belgique à une baisse importante de la production des matériaux habituellement employés comme additions dans les composites à matrice cimentaire (cendres volantes, laitier de haut fourneau). Pour faire face à ce problème, un vaste programme de recherche a été mis sur pied dans le but d’évaluer le potentiel de valorisation de fillers calcaires, de production wallonne, dans ce secteur. Ce papier traite des techniques utilisées pour caractériser de manière physique les fillers calcaires. Une étude paramétrique a permis de définir les conditions optimales de mesure de leur granulométrie par diffraction laser. Les résultats ont été comparés à ceux obtenus par la technique plus classique de tamisage en voie humide. La surface spécifique des poudres a également été mesurée par adsorption d’azote (méthode BET), par perméabilité (Blaine) et calculée à partir des résultats de la diffraction, via le diamètre de Sauter.

A high temperature superconducting magnetic energy storage device (SMES) has been realised using a 350 m-long BSCCO tape wound as a ''pancake'' coil. The coil is mounted on a cryocooler allowing temperatures down to 17.2 K to be achieved. The temperature dependence of coil electrical resistance R(T) shows a superconducting transition at T = 102.5 K. Measurements of the V(I) characteristics were performed at several temperatures between 17.2 K and 101.5 K to obtain the temperature dependence of the critical current (using a 1 uV/cm criterion). Critical currents were found to exceed 100 A for T < 30 K. An electronic DC-DC converter was built in order to control the energy flow in and out of the superconducting coil. The converter consists of a MOS transistor bridge switching at a 80 kHz frequency and controlled with standard Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) techniques. The system was tested using a 30 V squared wave power supply as bridge input voltage. The coil current, the bridge input and output voltages were recorded simultaneously. Using a 10 A setpoint current in the superconducting coil, the whole system (coil + DC-DC converter) can provide a stable output voltage showing uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capabilities over 1 s.

The effect of high (H) or low (L) levels of food intake, during the preceding 51 weeks, on leptin and Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) plasma concentrations in sheep were investigated in groups of 20 adult Timahdite (non-lactating, non-pregnant) ewes. Ewes of the two treatments had similar liveweight at the start of study but there was a twofold difference in energy intake. All animals were maintained indoors under natural daylength conditions (33°53'N, 5°32'W). Blood samples were collected monthly and the statistical analyses were performed on leptin and IGF-I levels. The mean leptin plasma concentrations were higher in H ewes than L sheep (3.98±0.97 ng/ml vs 3.34±1.17 ng/ml, P<0.05). For IGF-I, from week 1 to 26, the mean plasma concentrations were higher in H ewes than L sheep (76±28 ng/ml vs 58±21 ng/ml, P<0.01). However, from week 31 to 51, the mean plasma concentrations were similar in both groups (57±24 ng/ml vs 59±25 ng/ml, P>0.05). It was concluded that the food intake levels affect significantly leptin and IGF-I plasma concentrations and consequently may be the link between food intake, body condition and reproductive performances in sheep.
