La spectroscopie Proche infrarouge présente un large potentiel d'applications dans l'industrie pharmaceutique par sa capacité à transmettre des informations reliées à la fois à la structure chimique des échantillons et à leur état physique. Elle peut être mise à profit pour des analyses qualitatives, telles l'identification des matières premières, et également pour des analyses quantitatives telles le dosage d'un principe actif dans un comprimé. Avec pour avantage une rapidité inégalée pour délivrer un résultat comparée aux techniques classiques en vigueur. Attrayante par ses performances, cette spectroscopie nécessite cependant une prise en main qui doit respecter une démarche minutieuse et souvent déroutante par son aspect heuristique (allers-retours) et à la mise en oeuvre d'outils d'analyse statistique multivariée. Si de nombreuses publications témoignent de la puissance de cet outil, il est apparu opportun de rassembler en un même texte la démarche de développement à suivre et les repères à connaître pour permettre son utilisation en analyse quantitative dans un contexte de libération pharmaceutique. Le travail de cette commission a été de rassembler les éléments issus de la pratique industrielle en se concentrant sur l'un des essais les plus intéressants: celui de l'uniformité de teneur des comprimés. Ce test est en effet l'une des applications où la rapidité de mise en oeuvre est le plus appréciable, tout en étant celui qui peut poser le plus de questions quant à la validité des résultats et la prise de décision pharmaceutique.

The urban infrastructure, particularly water supply and drainage systems, have deteriorated severely in the past two decades in Phnom Penh, the capital city and the economic center of Cambodia. Water pollution caused by untreated wastewater is one of the serious problems that confront most developing countries (Kwai et al.1991). In Phnom Penh City, all kinds of wastewater are discharged to rivers, lakes and wetlands throughout the city without proper treatment causing serious surface water pollution. Water testing is an essential factor to control water pollution. However, water quality data and water quality testing systems are still poorly developed in Cambodia due to lack of facilities and technical expertise. Therefore, there is no information available on sewage water quality in Phnom Penh City. That’s why the work is aimed at collating basic information about the situation of water supply, waste water system and solid waste. The present information will provide the basis for targeting further field research. This is included the overview of sources and activities that may lead to pollution, with an appreciation of type of water pollutants involved, their magnitude and movement. Types of waste and effluent disposal including sanitation, liquid and solid waste management systems are described. After reviewing all the available, we found that the distribution of water has been well organized by the Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority while the managements of the wastewater, storm water and solid waste are poor due to the rapid urbanisation and industrialisation.

This paper considers sequential decision making problems under uncertainty, the tradeoff between the expected return and the risk of high loss, and methods that use dynamic programming to find optimal policies. It is argued that using Bellman's Principle determines how risk considerations on the return can be incorporated. The discussion centers around returns generated by Markov Decision Processes and conclusions concern a large class of methods in Reinforcement Learning. [less ▲]

Aphid-Ant relationships are common examples of mutualism. Aphids are indeed submitted to predation and therefore require protection, while ants are continuously looking for new sugar sources. The present work aimed to study the benefits that a mutualistic relationship with Lasius niger (Hymenoptera : Formicidae) could bring to the black bean aphid Aphis fabae (Homoptera, Aphididae). Several parameters were observed in the field, on broad bean plants infested with an initial amount of 100 A. fabae and in presence or not of a L. niger colony. More aphids were observed on plants being visited by ants as well as a higher proportion of winged individuals. One explanation is that fewer predators were observed on plants being visited by ants, demonstrating their protective role. However, the number of parasitized aphids was not reduced in presence of L. niger. On the other hand, fewer different aphid species were present on plants foraged by ants, what suggests that they could exert a predation on unattended aphids. Our observations do not allow to conclude on any impact of L. niger on the fitness of the aphid host plant, although fewer exuvia and honeydew spots were observed when they were present. All these results confirm that L. niger increase the fitness of A. fabae colonies mainly by decreasing the number of predators and by reducing competition from aphid species unattended by ants.

This paper describes a rare occurrence of a rich and diverse palynological assemblage from a controversial stratigraphic unit in well EW8 in northwestern Saudi Arabia. The composition of this assemblage strongly suggests a Pridoli age and therefore it is referred here to the Tawil Formation. The assemblage encountered contains very characteristic chitinozoans, acritarchs, tasmanities, scolecodontsm, eurypterid cuticle and common land-derived miospores and hilate cryptospores. Chitinozoans such as Margachitina elegans, Ancyrochitina fragilis brevis, Ancyrochitina fragilis, Sphaerochitina sphaerocephala, Urnochitina urna, Pseudochlathrochitina carmenchui and Lagenochitina brevicollis confer the Pridoli age assignment. This assemblage of chitinozoans correlates very well with Assemblage D from the Alternances Gréso-Argileuses Formation of the A1-61 well in northwestern Libya. Among the acritarchs present are: Cymbosphaeridium pilar, Leoniella carminae,Diexallophasis spp., Tunisphaeridium cf caudatum, Leiofusa estrecha and Eupoikilofusa striatifera. <br /> <br />Furthermore, the join occurrence of U. urna, P. carmenchui and M. elegans is clearly indicative of the middle part of the Pridoli as in the Libyan well A1-61, and in many wells in Algeria. This corresponds to what is considered to be a transgressive mid Pridoli event in the Algerian Sahara, with non marine intervals bracketing this brief marine sea level rise. This event is likely to have extended into all of north Gondwana including Arabia. [less ▲]

A high-resolution (1/60 degree), three-dimensional numerical circulation model of the Cariaco basin (Venezuela) is constructed by nesting the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) in the 1/12 degree global Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM). The Cariaco basin is a semi-enclosed trench located along the coast of Venezuela. Its maximum depth is about 1400 m, and it is connected to the open ocean by two shallow passages: the Centinela channel in the northwest (146 m depth) and the Tortuga channel in the northeast (135 m depth). The main objective of this work is to improve our knowledge of the Cariaco basin dynamics, and to understand how the basin is influenced by the Caribbean Sea. The nesting of the Cariaco model in HYCOM is therefore crucial for these analyses. First, the annual cycle of the basin is described, using the results from a 2004 hindcast. Then, two modes of interaction between the basin and the open ocean are studied: (i) the meanders and eddies that travel westward with the Caribbean Current, and (ii) a subsurface eastward current that flows along the South America north coast. The ventilation of the basin through its channels is analyzed by studying the annual variations of the thermocline depth in the basin channels. In addition to the improved knowledge of the Cariaco basin circulation, which can help to better understand the climate of the past through paleoceanographic studies, this work is also an example of the feasibility of one of the objectives of GODAE: downscaling from a large-scale model to a regional model. In particular, the nesting ratio of 5 used in this work (from 9 km down to 1.82 km) demonstrates that a high-resolution model can be successfully nested in HYCOM. [less ▲]

In the present paper, we discuss some recent advances concerning the determination of new radiative parameters (transition probabilities, oscillator strengths, radiative lifetimes, branching fractions, Landé factors) in heavy ions. We also emphasize the difficulties that are frequently met in the field and that sometimes prevent obtaining accurate atomic data for the transitions of astrophysical interest. We concentrate particularly on the determination of radiative parameters for selected rare-earth (RE) ions (lanthanides and actinides) and for some atoms and ions of the sixth row of the periodic table.

Substituting a heat pump to a boiler may save more than 50% of primary energy, if electricity is produced by a modern combined cycle power plant (and even more if a part of that electricity is produced using renewable sources). Two of the most attractive heat pumps applications consist in recovering the heat rejected by the condenser of an existing chiller and in using this chiller in reversible mode. This is the topic of the IEA-ECBCS Annex 48 project (“Heat pumping and reversible air conditioning”). An overview of the project is presented and the work of the different participants is briefly explained. Case studies are also briefly presented and more details are given on one of them. [less ▲]

Aphid alarm pheromone—the volatile sesquiterpene (E)-β-farnesene (Eβf) in most species—is released in response to predation and other stresses and typically causes nearby aphids who receive the signal to cease feeding, drop from their host plant, and disperse. Because aphid alarm pheromone confers apparent fitness benefits on recipients while its production and release likely entail costs for the emitting aphid, it could be adaptive for aphids to regulate their Eβf production in response to variation in the social environment. To explore this possibility we compared the production of Eβf by Acyrthosiphon pisum (Harris) individuals reared from first-instar larvae to the adult stage in isolation to that of individuals reared among conspecifics or among individuals of a different aphid species, Myzus persicae (Sulzer). Levels of EβF produced in each treatment were assayed by GC-FID quantification of EβF in volatiles collected from crushed aphids. Production of EβF by A. pisum reared in isolation (14.4ng/aphid) was significantly lower than that of aphids reared in a colony of conspecifics (49.1ng/aphid), reared in a M. persicae colony (31.5ng/aphid) or reared among conspecifics of another aaphid clone (52.7ng/aphid). Though A. pisum individuals in our experiments produced less EβF when reared among M. persicae than among conspecifics, this difference was not statistically significant. In a separate experiment we reared A. pisum individuals in isolation and exposed them to the odor of conspecifics. Under these conditions, EβF production was similar to that of aphids reared among conspecifics, suggesting that aphids use volatile cues to assess their social environment and regulate their production of alarm pheromone accordingly.

Clownfishes (i.e. Amphiprion akallopisos) are territorial fishes that use sound production to defend their anemone territory. They live in social groups which display a size-based dominance hierarchy. In such a system, agonistic interactions are frequent and play an important role in the social organization. In addition, these interactions are often associated with sounds. In this study, we compared the sonic features between individuals of different sizes and in different sexual status (juvenile, male and female). The existent relationship between fish size and swimbladder size also implied to seek the swimbladder role in the sound production. Sound analyses showed that juveniles, males and females had distinct sounds in the dominant frequency and pulse duration. These differences were however not in relation to the sexual state; influence of sex on sonic features being mainly the result of a size dimorphism between sexes. Differences in calls were therefore due to the respective size of the emitter. This observation highlighted the role of the swimbladder as a resonance chamber. This role was also reinforced because the experimental filling of the swimbladder with physiological liquid significantly modified the acoustic features. In A. akallopisos, frequency and pulse duration are directly related to swimbladder size, and thus to fish size. This relationship provides strong evidence that the emitter could be identified by its calls. [less ▲]
