Introduction : Le diabète atteint environ 3% de la population française. Or, cette maladie expose à l'apparition précoce de complications cardiovasculaires. Les troponines de nouvelles générations hautement sensibles pourraient être un bon outil diagnostic pour mettre en évidence des macroou micro-angiopathies non diagnostiquée chez ces patients. Le but de notre étude était de comparer la performance de la troponine T ultrasensible (hsTnT) (Roche Diagnostic) avec la troponine I ultrasensible (TnI II) (Abbott Diagnostic) chez le sujet diabétique. Matériel et méthodes : Vingt patients diabétiques (âge moyen : 52.6 ± 8.4 ans) ont été sélectionnés sur le critère d’un taux d’hémoglobine glyquée (HbA1c) élevé. Ces sujets ont été comparés à vingt sujets contrôles d’âge moyen : 60.05 ± 2.86 ans. Les patients atteints d’insuffisance rénale et d’affections cardiovasculaires ont été exclus. Les analyses ont été réalisées sur du plasma hépariné lithium. La hsTnT a été dosée par électrochemiluminescence sur le Modular E (Roche Diagnostic). Abbott utilise des microparticules chemiluminescentes pour le dosage de la TnI II sur l’ARCHITECT i. Résultats : Les sujets diabétiques ont un taux plasmatique de hsTnT représenté par les valeurs suivantes [médiane (1er quartile, 3ème quartile)] : 0,007 (0,03 ; 0,018) ng/mL ; alors que les sujets contrôles négatifs présentent les valeurs suivantes : 0,003 (0,003 ; 0,004) ng/mL. La différence de taux de hsTnT observée entre ces 2 populations est statistiquement significative (p = 0,000922). Pour la TnI II, on observe un taux plasmatique de: 0,004 (0,003 ; 0,075) ng/mL chez les sujets diabétiques et 0,002 (0,001 ; 0,005) ng/mL chez les sujets contrôles. La différence de taux de TnI II observée entre ces 2 populations n’est pas statistiquement significative (p > 0,005). Discussion-conclusion : Au décours d’un diabète, il apparait que les taux de hsTnT sont augmentés de façon significative par rapport au groupe des contrôles négatifs. Si les taux hsTnT augmentent chez le diabétique, il semblerait normal qu’il en soit de même pour la TnI II, vu que ces deux marqueurs sont intimement liés. Nous ne l’avons pas observé mais ceci peut être du à la plus faible performance analytique du dosage de la TnI II utilisé. Cette libération de hsTnT dans le sang peut être due aux micro- et macro-angiopathies au niveau des coronaires induites au cours d’un diabète. [less ▲]

This paper describes recent advances in prediction software using advanced data-mining tools, and shows how this can significantly increase the operational value of the data gathered. These new tools allow for new operational procedures to be defined that increase the usages of the network without decreasing security of supply. We will use the example of dynamic line rating, i.e. determining the thermal rating of an overhead line based on real-time environmental parameters (temperature, wind speed & direction and solar radiation) to highlight how the use of numerical data-mining tools can help us reliably predict future behavior of power networks.

Among all the new memories concepts, Phase Change Memories (PCM) is one of the most promising. However, various challenges remain. This paper reviews the materials and processes required to face these challenges. As an example, attention will be made on the effect of Phase change material composition on stability of the amorphous phase i.e. on the retention of the information. Additionally, it is showed how specific processes such as CVD or ALD can be developed in order to minimize the current required to amorphize the phase change material i.e. to reset the device. Finally, with the perspectives of the advanced integration nodes, experimental results on the effect of scaling on phase transformation are presented and discussed. © 2012 IEEE. [less ▲]

The European Space Agency (ESA) is planning a Lunar Lander mission in the 2018 timeframe that will demonstrate precise soft landing at the polar regions of the Moon. To ensure a safe and successful landing a careful risk analysis has to be carried out. This is comprised of identifying favorable target areas and evaluating the surface conditions in these areas. Features like craters, boulders, steep slopes, rough surfaces and shadow areas have to be identified in order to assess the risk associated to a landing site in terms of a successful touchdown and subsequent surface operation of the lander. In addition, global illumination conditions at the landing site have to be simulated and analyzed. The Landing Site Risk Analysis software framework (LandSAfe) is a system for the analysis, selection and certification of safe landing sites on the lunar surface. LandSAfe generates several data products including high resolution digital terrain models (DTMs), hazard maps, illumination maps, temperature maps and surface reflectance maps which assist the user in evaluating potential landing site candidates. This paper presents the LandSAfe system and describes the methods and products of the different modules. For one candidate landing site on the rim of Shackleton crater at the south pole of the Moon a high resolution DTM is showcased. * Corresponding [less ▲]

We briefly describe the 1/Nc expansion method for studying baryon masses. Two approaches of the large Nc excited baryons have been proposed so far. The first one, based on the Hartree picture, treats the baryon as a ground state core and an excited quark and the second one, suggested recently, considers the baryon globally, without decoupling the system. The masses of excited states of mixed orbital symmetry of nonstrange and strange baryons belonging to the lowest [70, −] multiplet are calculated in the 1/Nc expansion to order 1/Nc with the new method which allows to considerably reduce the number of linearly independent operators entering the mass formula. The status of the resonance Λ(1405) is discussed. [less ▲]

Wireworms are the soil dwelling larvae of click beetles (Coleoptera: Elateridae). Their importance as crop pests increases since the efficient chemical means to control them cannot be considered anymore. Therefore, many integrated pest management strategies have been investigated in the past few years. Most of them rely on the understanding of the ecology of the click beetles during their whole life cycle. We focus our work on the chemical ecology of wireworms, more precisely on the root-emitted volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that might intervene in the food-searching process of the larvae by helping them to find a suitable host-plant or by acting as key factors in the belowground defence mechanism of the plant. Here, we present our first results of dual-choice orientation tests in olfactometric pipes. Wireworms (Agriotes sordidus Illiger) were submitted individually to a variety of olfactory baits ranging from entire barley roots (Hordeum vulgare L. var. Quench) to isolated VOCs identified as part of the emitting profile. The latter was described thanks to HS-SPME samplings and GC-MS analysis, for roots grown in the exact same conditions as for the olfactometric experimentations with entire roots. Most of the experimentations gave significant results. When confronted to volatiles emitted by entire roots, wireworms significantly orientated towards the bait (χ²-goodness-of-fit test, χ²=8, P-value=0.005). This result allowed us to follow up with the same device and to progressively vary the nature of the baits. Our protocol should be used for other plant-wireworm species combinations. Our results should be taken into account in varietal selection, in crop rotation, or in trapping systems aiming at the reduction of the populations of wireworms. [less ▲]

Cet article s'intéresse à la relation entre narration et communication. Il suggère que la frontière réel/fiction serait non pertinente relativement à une « efficacité » ou à une « réussite » de la communication. Plus précisément, il suppose que la non pertinence de l’opposition réel/fiction est au cœur de la réussite de la communication elle-même : telle est la seconde thèse. Encore faudra-t-il auparavant s’être entendu sur ce qu’est une communication « réussie », et pour ce faire reconsidérer cette question, en établissant une relation de dépendance réciproque entre ses « rites », qui cadrent et limitent l’interaction ainsi que l’a montré Goffman, et ses « risques » que sont la possibilité du dérapage, de la sortie du cadre, voire la difficulté à établir un cadre. C'est là la première thèse : pas de rites sans risques, et ce non pas parce l’échec ou l’accident pourraient toujours survenir, mais parce qu’ils sont constitutifs du rite lui-même. En définitive, cet article s'attache à montrer que l’échec de la communication est l’une des conditions de sa réussite, et qu’il est au cœur de la possibilité de la narration ainsi que de sa lecture.

Over the last decade ground-based remote sensing measurements of CO2 have been established as an important component in the global observing system for greenhouse gases. Since 2004 the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON) sites have provided CO2 retrievals in the near-IR region. CO2 can also be retrieved in the mid-IR spectral region and it would be of great benefit to use these spectra to produce CO2-data of sufficient precision. With this, 20 years of additional observations obtained in the mid-IR at a suite of FT-IR sites of the Network Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) will be accessible. We investigated a series of different CO2 microwindows in the mid-IR spectral region and present results from the most promising candidates for a showcase FT-IR site (Ny Alesund). Limitations of the approach are outlined and the feasibility of a future Mid-IR CO2-product of sufficient precision is discussed. [less ▲]

Molecular evolution of the CYTH superfamily of proteins L. Bettendorff, D. Delvaux, G. Kohn, P. Wins, B. Lakaye GIGA-Neurosciences, University of Liège, Belgium The CYTH superfamily of proteins was named after the two founding members, the CYaB adenylyl cyclase from Aeromonas hydrophila and the human 25-kDa THiamine triphosphatase (ThTPase). Members of this superfamily of proteins exist in all organisms including bacteria, archaea, plants and animals (except in birds) and can be traced back to the Last Universal Common Ancestor. They are characterized by a consensus sequence including several charged residues involved in divalent cation and triphosphate binding. Indeed, all members of the CYTH family that are characterized act on triphosphate derivatives and require at least one divalent cation for catalysis. The Nitrosomonas europaea (1) and E.coli CYTH proteins are specific inorganic triphosphatases. We propose that inorganic triphosphate (PPPi), the most simple triphosphate compound that can be imagined, is the primitive substrate of CYTH proteins. Other enzyme activities such as adenylate cyclase (in A. hydrophila), mRNA triphosphatase (in fungi and protozoans) and ThTPase (in metazoans) activities are secondary acquisitions. We show that ThTPase activity is not limited to mammals, but Sea anemone and Zebrafish CYTH proteins are already specific ThTPases and the acquisition of this enzyme activity is linked to the presence of a Trp (W53 in mammalian ThTPases) residue involved in the binding of the thiazole heterocycle of the thiamine molecule. The importance of W53 for the specificity of mammalian ThTPases is confirmed by site-directed mutagenesis. Furthermore, we propose a conserved catalytic mechanism between inorganic triphosphatases and ThTPases, based on a catalytic dyad comprising a Lys and a Tyr residue, explaining the alkaline pH optimum of CYTH proteins.

The saddle gall midge, Haplodiplosis marginata (von Roser), has been detected in Belgium since 2010, after several decades without any reporting. It had indeed caused serious damages between 1965 and 1970. This insect is a European cereal pest whose larvae feed on stems and engender saddle-shaped depressions, resulting in yield losses. Face with the resurgence of this pest, it was decided to study its spatial distribution and, because serious damages were observed in some regions, to develop effective curative control. To date, chemical protection seems to be the only immediate solution in case of heavy emergences. Experimentation was conducted in a highly infested field (Meetkerke, Belgian Polders), according to a randomized complete blocks arrangement with four replications. Foremost, a lambdacyhalothrin-based insecticide was used to evaluate efficiency of several protection schemes, ranging between one and four spray(s). The large spread of flights observed during the 2011 spring allowed to highlight the effect of treatment date on the attack intensity and also on the galls distribution along the stem, on the different internodes: the lower internodes were protected by the early sprayings, while last sprayings induced reduction of galls number on the upper internodes. Moreover, several insecticides already registrated in cereals against aphids were compared for their efficacy against saddle gall midge. Studied pyrethroids have shown a very good efficacy, ranging between 75 % and 87 %, when applied twice with a 2 weeks interval. To be efficient, insecticide applications must thus be synchronized with the flights and egg-laying periods. Monitoring the phenology of flights is thus essential as part of integrated pest management against saddle gall midge. [less ▲]

The aggregative behaviour of the multicoloured Asian ladybeetle, Harmonia axyridis Pallas, during winters, is still misunderstood. Our study was focused on the chemical and physical factors involved in the selection of its aggregation sites. Chemical and behavioural analyses highlighted that long-chain hydrocarbons lead congeners towards aggregations and ensure the cohesion of the cluster. On the other hand, we investigated the influence of (1) the density of individuals and (2) the quality of available shelters on H. axyridis decision to settle and aggregate under shelters. A binary choice experiment conducted in laboratory highlighted a permanent aggregative behaviour of H. axyridis, even during non-wintering conditions, and the existence of social interactions between individuals.

Substrate limitation responsive biosensors have been used in order to detect spatial substrate heterogeneities, , inside industrial bioreactors (whole-cell biosensor). Three green fluorescent protein (GFP) transcriptional reporters have been chosen in E.coli, i.e. uspA::gfp, csiE::gfp and yciG::gfp. The promoter uspA is induced in response to a variety of stresses whereas the two other promoters, csiE and yciG, are supposed to be more specific in front of a substrate limitation. The responsiveness of these biosensors has been assessed in chemostat reactor. Secondly, the same biosensors have been tested in well-mixed laboratory reactors and in scale-down reactors able to reproduce industrial conditions. Finally, a mini scale-down platform has been proposed as a high throughput tool to investigate rapidly the usefulness of a given microbial biosensor. Local heterogeneities in mini-bioreactor have caused a decrease of GFP expression, as in scale-down reactor. The presence of GFP in supernatants was noticed and this leakage seems to be correlated with the membrane permeability. [less ▲]

Despite the great uncertainties regarding the future climatic context, lots of studies have focused on hydrological effects of climate change on the Meuse catchment. It appears that both winter high flows and summer low flows could be exacerbated. Climate change and its impacts on hydrology will thus affect various socio-economic sectors. High flows have been widely studied compared to low-flows. This poster will put the emphasis on a methodology developed in order to study impacts of droughts on agriculture. Agriculture is among the most impacted sectors due to climate change. The consequences could be both positive as negative in accordance with the range of predicted changes and the adaptation capacity of agricultural systems. Most of the existing studies related to climate change on agriculture focused on specific territory. Within the AMICE Interreg IVB project, a transnational approach has been developed to assess droughts impacts on agriculture through the Meuse basin. The project’s previous works gave us a common scenario of climate trends and of the evolution of the hydrology in the Meuse basin. The methodology is based on the use of a physically-based model able to simulate the water-soil-plant continuum (derived from EPIC model). In order to be transferable from one country to another, the methodology proposed used data available at the basin scale. The UE soil data base was complemented with local information on agricultural practices and statistics. Three crops have been studied: maize, wheat and barley. The basic cultural calendar is supposed to be the same for the different countries. The methodology developed permits to study the evolution of yields, leaf area index, crops stress due to excess or lack of water through time under different scenarios build up in the frame of the project. It appears that corn is negatively affected by climate change, and thus despite the CO2 fertilization effect. Wheat and barley have similar behavior and are positively affected by climate change and CO2 fertilization. Leaf Area Index study reveals that the different crops start earlier and reach earlier maturity. These first results will be completed with other economic sectors’analysis like drinkable water production, electricity production and navigation. Therefore, the project will progress towards a better understanding of economic effects of future droughts and low-flows. [less ▲]

Comet 8P/Tuttle was the target of an ESO multiwavelength observing campaign in 2008. Observations of the spatial distribution of C2 and C3 were obtained, as well as simultaneous direct detections of the C2 parent species C2H2 and C2H6. We combine these observations to investigate the origin of cometary C2. The observed C2 column densities are inconsistent with a production of C2 from C2H2, C2H6, and C3. Based on a photochemical model, we quantitatively discuss the influence of further potential C2 parent species. The assumption of C4H2 as an additional C2 parent species in comet 8P/Tuttle provides the best explanation for the observed C2 column densities. [less ▲]

Nowadays, tillage simplification is an increasing practice. Many advantages are cited in the literature, such as energy saving, soil conservation etc. Agricultural management practices influence soil structure, but consequent changes in soil hydrodynamic behaviour at the field scale are still not well understood. Many studies focus only on macroscopic measurements which do not provide mechanistic explanations. Moreover, research shows divergent conclusions over structure modification. The aim of this work is to fill this gap by quantifying soil structure modification depending on tillage intensity through both macroscopic and microscopic measurements, the latter improving our comprehension of the fundamental mechanisms involved.

Ethane (C2H6) is the most abundant Non-Methane HydroCarbon (NMHC) in the Earth’s atmosphere, with a lifetime of approximately 2 months. C2H6 has both anthropogenic and natural emission sources such as biomass burning, natural gas loss and biofuel consumption. Oxidation by the hydroxyl radical is by far the major C2H6 sink as the seasonally changing OH concentration controls the strong modulation of the ethane abundance throughout the year. Ethane lowers Cl atom concentrations in the lower stratosphere and is a major source of peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) and carbon monoxide (by reaction with OH). Involved in the formation of tropospheric ozone and in the destruction of atmospheric methane through changes in OH, C2H6 is a non-direct greenhouse gas with a net-global warming potential (100-yr horizon) of 5.5. The retrieval of ethane from ground-based infrared (IR) spectra is challenging. Indeed, the fitting of the ethane features is complicated by numerous interferences by strong water vapor, ozone and methane absorptions. Moreover, ethane has a complicated spectrum with many interacting vibrational modes and the current state of ethane parameters in HITRAN (e.g. : Rothman et al., 2009, see http://www.hitran.com) was rather unsatisfactory in the 3 µm region. In fact, PQ branches outside the 2973–3001 cm-1 range are not included in HITRAN, and most P and R structures are missing. New ethane absorption cross sections recorded at the Molecular Spectroscopy Facility of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (Harrison et al., 2010) are used in our retrievals. They were calibrated in intensity by using reference low-resolution spectra from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) IR database. Pseudoline parameters fitted to these ethane spectra have been combined with HITRAN 2004 line parameters (including all the 2006 updates) for all other species encompassed in the selected microwindows. Also, the improvement brought by the update of the line positions and intensities of methyl chloride (CH3Cl) in the 3.4 m region (Bray et al., 2011) will be quantified. The ethane a priori volume mixing ratio (VMR) profile and associated covariance are based on synthetic data from the chemical transport model (CTM) of the University of Oslo. In this contribution, we will present updated ethane total and tropospheric column retrievals, using the SFIT-2 algorithm (v3.91) and high-resolution Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) solar absorption observations recorded with a Bruker 120HR instrument, at the high altitude research station of the Jungfraujoch (46.5°N, 8°E, 3580 m asl), within the framework of the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC, visit http://www.ndacc.org). We will characterize three microwindows encompassing the strongest ethane features after careful selection of a priori VMR profiles, spectroscopic parameters, accounting at best for all interfering species. We will then present the retrieval strategy representative of the best combination of those three characterized micro-windows in order to minimize the fitting residuals while maximizing the information content, the precision and the reliability of the retrieved product. The long-term C2H6 column time series will be produced using the Jungfraujoch observational database. Comparisons with synthetic data produced by two chemical transport model (CHASER and the one of the University of Oslo) will also be presented and analyzed, aiming at the determination and interpretation of long-term trends and interannual variations of ethane at Northern mid-latitudes.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterised by altered recollection function, with impaired controlled retrieval of associations. In contrast, familiarity-based memory for individual items may sometimes be preserved in the early stages of the disease. This is the first study that directly examines whole brain regional activity during one core aspect of the recollection function: associative controlled episodic retrieval (CER), contrasted to item familiarity in AD patients. Cerebral activity related to associative CER and item familiarity in AD patients and healthy controls (HC) was measured with functional magnetic resonance imaging during a word-pair recognition task to which the process dissociation procedure was applied. Some patients had null CER estimates (AD–), whereas others did show some CER abilities (AD+), although significantly less than HC. In contrast, familiarity estimates were equivalent in the three groups. In AD+, as in controls, associative CER activated the inferior precuneus/posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). However, during associative CER, functional connection between this region and the hippocampus, the inferior parietal and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) was significantly higher in HC than in AD+. In all three groups, item familiarity was related to activation along the intraparietal sulcus (IPS). In conclusion, whereas the preserved automatic detection of an old item (without retrieval of accurate word association) is related to parietal activation centred on the IPS, the inferior precuneus/PCC supports associative CER ability in AD patients, as in HC. However, AD patients have deficient functional connectivity during associative CER, suggesting that the residual recollection function in these patients might be impoverished by the lack of some recollection-related aspects such as autonoetic quality, episodic details and verification.

Water vapour is a crucial climate variable involved in many processes which widely determine the energy budget of our planet. In particular, water vapour is the dominant greenhouse gas in the Earth’s atmosphere and its radiative forcing is maximum in the middle and upper troposphere. Because of the extremely high variability of water vapour concentration in time and space, it is challenging for the available relevant measurement techniques to provide a consistent data set useful for trend analyses and climate studies. Schneider et al. (2006a) showed that ground-based Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, performed from mountain observatories, allows for the detection of H2O variabilities up to the tropopause. Furthermore, the FTIR measurements allow the retrieval of HDO amounts and therefore the monitoring of HDO/H2O ratio profiles whose variations act as markers for the source and history of the atmospheric water vapour. In the framework of the MUSICA European project (Multi-platform remote Sensing of Isotopologues for investigating the Cycle of Atmospheric water, http://www.imk-asf.kit.edu/english/musica.php), a new approach has been developed and optimized by M. Schneider and F. Hase, using the PROFFIT algorithm, to consistently retrieve tropospheric water vapour profiles from high-resolution ground-based infrared solar spectra and so taking benefit from available long-term data sets of ground-based observations. The retrieval of the water isotopologues is performed on a logarithmic scale from 14 micro-windows located in the 2600-3100 cm-1 region. Other important features of this new retrieval strategy are: a speed dependant Voigt line shape model, a joint temperature profile retrieval and an interspecies constraint for the HDO/H2O profiles. In this contribution, we will combine the quality of the MUSICA strategy and of our observations, which are recorded on a regular basis with FTIR spectrometers, under clear-sky conditions, at the NDACC site (Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change, http://www.ndacc.org) of the Jungfraujoch International Scientific Station (Swiss Alps, 46.5°N, 8.0°E, 3580m asl). Information content analysis of the retrieved H2O products allows us to produce a long-term trend from 1996 to 2011 for different tropospheric levels. We will compare the annual cycle of tropospheric HDO/H2O ratio profiles with those already produced at other sites (Schneider et al., 2010). We will also focus on the diurnal variability of water vapour to determine a time limit in the inter-comparison of different water vapour measurement techniques. [less ▲]

Implementation of European directives in the environmental field and, specially, in the water management field, generates a request from policy-makers for news tools able to evaluate impact of management measures aiming at reducing pressures on ecosystems. In Wallonia (Southern Region of Belgium), the Nitrate Directive (EEC/676/91) was transposed into the “Walloon action plan for nitrogen sustainable management in agriculture” (PGDA1) in 2002. In 2007, a second plan was launched to reinforce some topics (PGDA2). Furthermore, the goal of “good quality” of surface waters and groundwater imposed by the Water Framework Directive poses new challenges in water management. In this context, a “soil and vadose” hydrological model is used in order to evaluate diffuse pollutions and efficiency of mitigation measures. This model, called EPICgrid, has been developed at catchment scale with an original modular concept on the basis of the field scale “water-soil-plant” EPIC model (Williams J.R., Jones C.A., Dyke P.T. (1984). A modelling approach to determining the relationship between erosion and soil productivity. Transactions of the ASAE. 27, 129-144). The model estimates, for each HRU identified into a 1km2 grid, water and nutrients flows into the plant-soil-vadose zone system (Sohier C., Degré A., Dautrebande S. (2009). From root zone modelling to regional forecasting of nitrate concentration in recharge flows – The case of the Walloon Region (Belgium). Journal of Hydrology, Volume 369, Issues 3-4, 15 May 2009, Pages 350-359). The model is used to make prospective simulations in order to evaluate the impact of measures currently performed to reduce the effect of diffuse pollution on water surface quality and groundwater quality, at regional scale. Response of the soil-vadose zone to agricultural practices modification is analyzed for the deadlines of the Water Framework Directive: 2015, 2021 and 2027, taking into account two climatic scenarios. Simulations results showed that actual measures are not sufficient in some areas and that new actions are necessary. The EPICgrid model was also used to evaluate effectiveness of further measures that could be implemented in order to reduce agricultural diffuse pollution. The increasing of catch crops in vulnerable zones has shown a limited impact in theWalloon context. The modifications of agricultural practices such as crop rotations or mineral fertilizing amounts have shown a more significant impact on water quality. Furthermore, the farmers’ practices are evaluated each year by a measuring campaign of the soil nitrogen residue after harvest. These data allow us to improve the representativeness of the EPICgrid model in areas in which agricultural practices largely differs from regional statistics. [less ▲]

The determination of isotopic ratios in comets is of primary importance for a good understanding of their origin and the formation of solar system. The [SUP]14[/SUP]N/[SUP]15[/SUP]N ratio is an interesting tracer, because of its variability among various solar system bodies. So far it has only been measured in bright comets through optical observations of the CN radical (Arpigny et al., 2003; Manfroid et al., 2009) and millimeter observations of HCN (Bockelée-Morvan et al., 2005, 2008). The measurements give for both species the same non-terrestrial isotopic composition ([SUP]14[/SUP]N/[SUP]15[/SUP]N≈150 in comets versus 272 in the Earth atmosphere), but HCN and CN are minor species. In order to get a determination of this ratio in another molecule we have searched for [SUP]15[/SUP]NH[SUB]2[/SUB] lines in a high-resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio spectrum of comet C/2002 T7 (LINEAR) obtained with the UVES spectrometer at the VLT ESO 8-m telescope (Hutsemékers et al., 2008). This work is based on a new laboratory experiment conducted with the AILES beamline spectrometer at synchrotron SOLEIL to determine the [SUP]15[/SUP]NH[SUB]2[/SUB] wavelengths by Fourier transform spectroscopy. We will present the first results obtained from these data, which have allowed to search for the first time [SUP]15[/SUP]NH[SUB]2[/SUB] emission lines in a comet.

Precipitation traditionally observed using raingages or weather stations, is one of the main parameters that has direct impact on runoff production. This pPrecipitation data requires a preliminary spatial interpolation prior to hydrological modeling. The accuracy of modelling result is determined bydepends on the accuracy of the interpolated spatial rainfall which differs according to different interpolation methods. The accuracy of the interpolated spatial rainfall is usually determined by cross-validation method. The objective of this study is to assess the different interpolation methods of daily rainfall at the watershed scale through hydrological modelling and to explore the best methods that provides a good long term simulation. Four versions of geostatistics: Ordinary Kriging (ORK), Universal Kriging (UNK), Kriging with External Dridft (KED) and Ordinary Cokriging (OCK) and two types of deterministic methods: Thiessen polygon (THI) and Inverse Distance Weighting (IDW) are used to produce 30-year daily rainfall inputs for a distributed physically-based hydrological model (EPIC-GRID). This work is conducted in the Ourthe and Ambleve nested catchments, located in the Ardennes hilly landscape in the Walloon region, Belgium. The total catchment area is 2908 km², lies between 67 and 693 m in elevation. The multivariate geostatistics (KED and OCK) are also used by incorporating elevation as external data to improve the rainfall prediction. This work also aims at analysing the effect of different raingage densities and position used for interpolation, on the stream flow modelled to get insight in terms of the capability and limitation of the geostatistical methods. The number of raingage varies from 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 8 to 4 stations located in and surrounding the catchment area. In the latter case, we try to use different positions: around the catchment and only a part of the catchment. The result shows that the simple method like THI fails to capture the rainfall and to produce good flow simulation when using 4 raingages. The KED and UNK are comparable to other methods for a raingage case that in which stations are located around the catchment area, especially in the high elevation catchment but the worst methods for other raingage position cases where the rainfall stations are located only at a part and mostly outside of the catchment area. However, three methods (IDW, ORK and OCK) can overcome this problem since they are more robust and can provide good performance of simulation in all raingage densities. When using 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 8 raingages in the catchment area (2908 km²), no substantial differences in model performance are observed. [less ▲]

The verbal overshadowing effect (VO) (eg, Schooler and Engstler-Schooler, 1990 Cognitive Psychology 22(1) 36–71) suggests that the fact of generating a verbal description of a previously seen face may impair subsequent performance on a lineup identification task in adults. Previous research has examined whether descriptions also impaired children’s identification abilities but no evidence of VO was found (Memon and Rose, 2002 Psychology, Crime and Law 8(3), 229–242). However, the method might not have been appropriate to observe this effect as, for instance, a 24-hour delay between the description and the identification tasks (associated with a release of the VO effect in adults) was used. Hence, in this current experiment, groups of children (7–8, 10–11, 13–14 years old) and adults were presented with a short video and then assigned to a description or a no description condition before the identification task. Participants were also assigned either to a “no delay”, a “24-hour post encoding delay” or a “24-hour post description delay” condition to determine the influence of delay on the VO effect. Results indicated that, compared to the control condition, the description decreased correct identification performance in both children and adults and no release of VO was found with delay.

We investigated the antioxidant capacity of phenolic acid derivatives by measuring their capacity to prevent ABTS oxidation and evaluating their anti-inflammatory like-properties on the oxidant response of neutrophils, especially on superoxide anion production and the activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO), an oxidant enzyme present and released by the primary granules of neutrophils. The superoxide anion production by PMA-stimulated neutrophils was measured by lucigenin-enhanced chimiluminescence (CL) and the activity of MPO by SIEFED to study the potential interaction of a molecule with the enzyme without interferences due to medium. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of the phenolic compounds were correlated to their redox potentials measured by voltammetry method, and discussed in relation to their molecular structure. The ability of the phenolic molecules to decrease ABTS oxidation and CL production was inversely correlated to their redox potential increasing as follows: propyl gallate > gallic acid > caffeic acid > 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid > ferulic acid > syringic acid > 2,6-dihydroxybenzoic acid > salicylic acid > benzoic acid. The number of hydroxyl groups (3) and their position (catechol) were essential for the efficacy of the molecules as stoichiometric antioxidants or scavengers. On MPO activity, the inhibitory capacity of the molecules was not really correlated with their redox potential and increased as follows: gallic acid > caffeic acid > 2,6-dihydroxybenzoic acid > propyl gallate > ferulic acid = syringic acid > 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid = salicylic acid > benzoic acid. The number of OH groups and the elongation of the carboxyl group were essential for the inhibition of MPO activity, probably by facilitating the interaction with the MPO active site or structure. The redox potential measurement seems to be a good technique to select stoichiometric antioxidants, but not anti-catalytic ones. [less ▲]

The so-called "magnetic flux profile" AC inductive technique is a powerful method for determining the critical current density Jc of bulk superconductors. In this work we aim at reporting analytical expressions for magnetic flux profiles of superconducting rectangular samples exhibiting a critical current density anisotropy. The results are used for examining the error resulting from approximating a rectangular cross-section by an "infinite cylinder" or "infinite slab" geometry. It is found that such approximations can lead to an artificial curvature of the flux profiles and errors of 10%–20% in the determination of Jc. Next, the effects of how planar defects (cracks, platelet boundaries,...) affect the magnetic flux profile signal are discussed. It is found that the magnetic flux profiles are much sensitive to the lengthscale of shielding currents, thereby providing means of investigation of the typical size of induced current loops in bulk superconductors. Finally some illustrative flux profile data measured on a bulk, large grain melt-processed YBCO single domain exhibiting Jc anisotropy are presented and discussed in relation with theoretical predictions.

At the time when the significance of water becomes more than obvious, we realize the utility of models that describe hydrological phenomena and that permit the optimization of water management. The soil properties, as they have an influence both on hydrology and on plant development, are an element really essential in this type of model. But, as for tree characteristics, these properties are spatially and temporally variable. Therefore this research will specially focus on the case of forested slopes. The study will be divided into three parts. The first will characterize the vertical and the horizontal heterogeneity of the structural and hydrodynamic properties of soil. To do this, in addition to the analysis of the soil sampled along the slope, moisture sensors will be installed on different places on a slope and on different depths. For the greatest part it will be capacitive sensors whose values will be confirmed by TDR sensors. Each sensor will be inserted to cover the largest pedological and topographic variability. The second part of the study will permit to characterize the water flux repartition into the horizons down the slope. We will therefore apply a dye to surface on the top of the slope. The bottom of the slope will be equipped with an experimental system which collects water for each soil layer. The third parts will deal with the forest stand heterogeneity along the slope. We will measure characteristics such as tree height, roots repartition, stem circumference and also for different periods of the year, leaf area index (LAI). At the end of the research, we will measure tree rings for a dendrochronolocical study. The collected data will be analyzed to determine the slope effects on the soil properties, on the water flux distribution into the soil layer and on the tree characteristics. Afterwards the relations and the interactions can be conceptualized and introduced into a physical hydrological model. The studied slope is located on the Houille watershed in the West of the Belgian Ardenne. The site is situated under a Douglas fir cover (Pseudotsuga menziesii (MIRB.) FRANCO). It is about 170 meters long with an average slope of 25%. There are only few studies that attempt to connect physical models and the tree growth at the slope scale, leaving a vast untapped investigation area in the hydrological modelling. The study of this variability would afford possibility to improve hydrological models. From the point of view of the climate change, such a model would e.g. determine the best adapted species to each forest site. [less ▲]

We present recent developments on the role of the running coupling constant at the intersection of perturbative and nonperturbative QCD. A number of experiments show a smooth transition from small to large scales given by the four-momentum transfer in the reactions. This is at variance with perturbative QCD where the running coupling constant becomes infinite when the scale equals ΛQCD. Approaches using an effective coupling constant could help interpret the opposite trend of data as compared to standard perturbative QCD predictions. We give an overview of the role of the coupling constant in the procedure to match nonperturbative hadronic model to perturbative QCD and we propose an extraction of an effective coupling constant from inclusive electron proton scattering data at large Bjorken x.

We report on the extraction of dihadron fragmentation functions (DiFF) from the semiinclusive production of two hadron pairs in back-to-back jets in e+e- annihilation. A nonzero asymmetry in the correlation of azimuthal orientations of opposite π+π− pairs is related to the transverse polarization of fragmenting quarks through a significant polarized DiFF. A combined analysis of this asymmetry and the spin asymmetry in the SIDIS process ep↑→e′(π+π−)X has led to the first extraction of the u and d-flavor transversity parton distribution function in the framework of collinear factorization.

While disgust and fear are both negative emotions, they are characterized by different physiology and action tendencies, which might in turn lead to different attentional biases. However, the potential disgusting aspect of threatening stimuli has somehow been neglected which might contribute to discrepancies in the literature. The goal of this study was to examine whether fear- and disgust-evoking images produce different attentional disengagement patterns. We pre-selected IAPS images according to their disgusting, frightening, or neutral character and presented them as central cues while participants had to identify a target letter briefly appearing around them. To investigate the time course of disengagement from those central images, we used 4 different cue-target intervals (200, 500, 800 and 1100 ms). Reaction times were significantly longer with the disgust-evoking images than with neutral- and fear-evoking images at the 200 ms interval only. This suggests that only disgust- and not fear-related images hold participants'attention for longer. This might be related to the need to perform a more comprehensive risk-assessment of disgust-evoking pictures. These results have important implications for future emotion-attention research as they indicate that a more careful selection of stimulus materials that goes beyond the dimensions of valence and arousal is needed.

A herd of 45 Holstein dairy cows was milked with an automatic milking system (AMS) located on a permanent pasture. The cows grazed from 22.06.2010 until 20.10.2010 on a rotational system. They were fetched twice a day to the AMS but they could also reach it freely. The sward height was measured at the entry and exit of each paddock. Data about daily milk yield and milking number were analysed according to a GLM including the effect of animal, days in paddock, distance between AMS and paddock, rotation cycle number and complementation.
