Despite recent major improvements of water vapour databases, the insufficient quality or consistency of the H2O spectroscopic parameters has been reported many times and line parameters are often manually adjusted to minimize residuals and improve the quality of the fits. Atmospheric observations allow assessing the quality of databases through their simulation using the different line parameters reported in those databases. This work presents four concrete examples of the spectroscopic problems and proposed improvements in various spectral regions. [less ▲]

A dynamic model has been developed to represent biogeochemical variables and processes observed during a bloom of Emiliania huxleyi coccolithophore. This bloom was induced in a mesocosm experiment during which the ecosystem development was followed over a period of 23-days through changes in various biogeochemical parameters such as inorganic nutrients (nitrate, ammonium and phosphate), total alkalinity (TA), dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2), dissolved oxygen (O2), photosynthetic pigments, particulate organic carbon (POC), dissolved organic carbon (DOC), Transparent Exopolymer Particles (TEP), primary production, and calcification. This dynamic model is based on unbalanced algal growth and balanced bacterial growth. In order to adequately reproduce the observations, the model includes an explicit description of phosphorus cycling, calcification, TEP production and an enhanced mortality due to viral lysis. The model represented carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus fluxes observed in the mesocosms. Modelled profiles of algal biomass and final concentrations of DIC and nutrients are in agreement with the experimental observations. [less ▲]

This paper reports a new concept of micromechanical sensors of temperature. The sensors consist of a micro-cantilever transducer and optical readout means for monitoring cantilever mechanical response using the surface plasmons resonance (SPR) phenomenon. This solution has the advantage of reducing the cantilever length due to an ultrahigh resolution of the optical readout means and, therefore a high signal-to-noise ratio can be achieved. [less ▲]

We present how it is achieved to mount a double prism in the filter wheel of MIRIM - the imager of JWST’s Mid Infrared Instrument. In order to cope with the extreme conditions of the prisms’ surroundings, the low resolution double prism assembly (LRSDPA) design makes high demands on manufacturing accuracy. The design and the manufacturing of the mechanical parts are presented here, while ’Manufacturing and verification of ZnS and Ge prisms for the JWST MIRI imager’ are described in a second paper [1]. We also give insights on the astronomical possibilities of a sensitive MIR spectrometer. Low resolution prism spectroscopy in the wavelength range from 5-10 microns will allow to spectroscopically determine redshifts of objects close to/at the re-ionization phase of the universe.

Chordal graphs can be used to encode dependency models that are representable by both directed acyclic and undirected graphs. This paper discusses a very simple and efficient algorithm to learn the chordal structure of a probabilistic model from data. The algorithm is a greedy hill-climbing search algorithm that uses the inclusion boundary neighborhood over chordal graphs. In the limit of a large sample size and under appropriate hypotheses on the scoring criterion, we prove that the algorithm will find a structure that is inclusion-optimal when the dependency model of the data-generating distribution can be represented exactly by an undirected graph. The algorithm is evaluated on simulated datasets. [less ▲]

Given their multidimensional missions, combining economic, social and sometimes political dimensions, FTOs have been proposed quite early as examples of “social enterprise” (SE). Such link has been made in a particularly explicit way in the United Kingdom, by both academics (e.g. Martin and Osberg, 2007; Nicholls, 2006) and practitioners. Following Dart (2004), the trend for FTOs to depict themselves (and to be depicted) as SEs probably stems from a research of legitimacy towards an environment that promotes values of entrepreneurship and innovation. However, if FTOs are considered as obvious examples of SE, there still needs to be explained carefully why this is the case, and to what extent. Is it the involvement in FT that makes the enterprises “social”, or is it a set of particular organisational characteristics shared by most FTOs, or is it a combination of both? If the fact of “doing Fair Trade” is not a sufficient criterion to generate a SE dynamics – as we believe it –, then what is it in FTOs that makes these organisations eligible as SEs? The answers to these questions are closely linked to the framework used to define SE. While we try to consider different conceptualisations of SE in our analysis (part 1), we pay a special attention to the “multiple goal” and “multiple stakeholders” features put forward by the authors of the “EMES network”. In part 2, we recall the basics of the FT concept and the historical evolution of the movement. We then present our empirical data on FTOs in four European regions. Finally, we confront these data to some of the SE features identified in the literature (part 3). In this analysis, we particularly try to examine to what extent FTOs pursue multiple goals and involve multiple stakeholders, and how such organisational characteristics could be linked to each other and to other features such as resources, age and size.
