  1. 222 Rn exposure assessment in the caves of Parque Estadual Turistico do Alto Ribeira (PETAR)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the present work, radon concentrations in six caves of PETAR - Parque Estadual Turistico do Alto Ribeira (High Ribeira River Touristic State Park) were carried out with Makrofol E solid state nuclear track detectors (SSNTD) and used to assess the annual effective dose received by regional tour guides. The park has four visitation centers: Santana, Ouro Grosso, Caboclos e Casa de Pedra and receives nearly 40,000 people annually. The caves evaluated were Couto, Agua Suja, Laje Branca, Morro Preto and Santana, from Santana center and Alambari de Baixo from Ouro Grosso center, for being the most frequently visited caves. The exposure period of the SSNTD was, at least, three months, over a period of 26 months, from October 2003 to November 2005.The 222Rn concentrations lay in a range from 153 Bq.m-3 to 6607 Bq.m-3 and we observed that, in general, for chilly weather, the radon levels decrease. The annual effective dose, considering the most realistic scenario, with geometric mean concentrations, an equilibrium factor of 0.5 and annual exposure time for each cave, varied from 0.2 mSv.a-1 for the Couto cave, strongly ventilated, to 4.0 mSv.a-1 for the Santana cave, the most frequently visited and no external communication. For the worst scenario, with arithmetic mean concentrations, equilibrium factor 1 and annual exposure time for all caves, the annual effective dose was 16.1 mSv.a-1. All assessed effective doses received by the tour guides are bellow 20 mSv.a-1 suggested as an annual effective dose limit for occupational exposure by the International Commission of Radiological Protection (ICRP 60, 1990).

El análisis de datos y los resultados de la investigación de campo nos lleva a la conclusión de que PETAR está experimentando un proceso de deterioro de sus cuevas abiertas al público y sus alrededores por razón de un turismo no regulado, creando así el efecto de la tragedia de los comunes. En el caso de PEI se encontró una visita más controlada y limitada, y por lo tanto un grado de preservación del parque mucho más alto.

    This paper deals with a critical and reflexive that the issue involving the possibility of construction and operation of Hydroelectric Power (HEP) Tijuco Alto, the upper course of the Ribeira Valley between Sao Paulo and Parana, in the Vale do Ribeira. This project will directly affect the towns of Ribeira-SP, Itapirapua Paulista-SP, Cerro Azul-PR, Dr. Ulysses-PR and Adrianopolis-PR. Thus, we defined the main objective of the research examines the quality of life in the city of Ribeira-SP, at the possibility of deployment of the dam. Thus, field research was conducted in the city and interviews with residents, where it was possible to observe, among other things the precarious economic conditions, social, urban and cultural community. Another aspect noted was the fact that most respondents to position themselves for the construction of the HPP Tijuco Alto, citing primarily the need for local development and increased job opportunities. Those opposing the plant, highlighted environmental issues, mainly, reasons related to loss of peace and security site. Regardless of those who are for or against, a technical opinion issued by IBAMA in 2008 points to the likely deployment of the HPP Tijuco Alto. (author)

    This work has as its main objective the geomechanical characterization on the future rocky mass foundation of the Tijuco Alto dam, sited at the Ribeira river, in the cities of Ribeirao, Sao Paulo state and Adrianopolis, Parana state, Brazil, owned by the Companhia Brasileira de Aluminio (Brazilian company of Aluminium). To reach that target, field studies were made to qualify the geotechnical parameters of the rocky mass, in the axis area open galleries. It was also used in situ deformability and stress test results performed in those galleries, that were reinterpreted for a better adaptation of the mass values. The knowledge of the mass inherent characteristics together with the laboratories test results, allowed for the geomechanical classification applications in several different gallery sectors. The geomechanical data obtained allowed through mathematical expressions, to reach the rocky mass values correlations of interest to the work (deformability and strength), that could be compared to the in situ test results. That analysis permitted, besides the classification critical system evaluation, the geomechanical characterization of the rocky mass, focusing its ability to the dam arch construction. (author)

  10. The Alto Ribeira magmatic arc (Parana State-Southern Brazil): Geochemical and isotopic evidence of magmatic focus migration and its tectonic implications

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The present location of the geological units which comprise the Precambrian of the south-southeastern part of the Ribeira fold belt in Parana State, Brazil, is the result of a series of superposed tectono-metamorphic events. During this evolution, and especially at the end of the Neoproterozoic, between 640 and 550 Ma, an important crustal accretion event within the Brasiliano Megacycle was responsible for the generation of the Alto Ribeira magmatic arc (ARMA). This arc is now represented by a large volume of granitic rocks amongst which the Cunhaporanga (CPB) and Tres Corregos (TCB) granitic batholiths stand out. The SSE part of the Ribeira belt forms an long, NE strip with a mainly NE trend, formed by deformed middle to upper crustal rocks, metamorphosed in greenschist to amphibolite facies (Basei et.al.1992; Fiori, 1993; Hackspacher et.al. 1997; Campanha and Sadowski 1999). These rocks are intruded by the Neoproterozoic CPB, TCB and the Agudos Grandes batholith, and many granite stocks. The CPB and TCB are elongated bodies with NE-SW major axes which occur north and south, respectively, of the Itaiacoca metavolcano-sedimentary sequence. Together, they occupy about 6,500 km2. The southeastern contact between the CPB and the Itaiacoca country rocks is intrusive, while the northwestern contact of the BCT with this group is tectonic, represented by the Itapirapua shear zone. Its contact with rocks of the Agua Clara Formation of the Acungui Group is intrusive. The mineral assemblages in the rocks of the two main batholiths are typically calc-alkaline. The CPB is more homogeneous, being mainly composed of porphyritic to inequigranular, isotropic monzogranite which are accompanied by rare granodiorite. The TCB is more heterogeneous, and includes undeformed or deformed quartz monzonite, granodiorite and monzogranite, as well as rare tonalite and syenogranite. The rocks of the CPB (with 65 - 73% SiO2) and the TCB (60-76% SiO2) are meta- to weakly per-aluminous in the

    Full Text Available Show caves provide tourists with the opportunity to have close contact with natural underground spaces. However, visitation to these places also creates a need for management measures, mainly the definition of tourist carrying capacity. The present work describes the results of climate monitoring and atmospheric profiling performed in Santana Cave (Alto Ribeira State and Tourist Park – PETAR, Brazil between 2008 and 2011. Based on the results, distinct preliminary zones with different levels of thermal variation were identified, which classify Santana Cave as a warm trap. Two critical points along the tourist route (Cristo and Encontro Halls were identified where the temperature of the locality increased by 1.3 °C when tourists were present. Air flow from the inner cave to the outside occurs during the austral summer, and the opposite flow occurs when the outside environment is colder than the air inside the cave during the austral winter. The temperature was used to establish thresholds to the tourist carrying capacity by computing the recovery time of the atmospheric conditions after the changes caused by the presence of tourists. This method suggests a maximum limit of approximately 350 visits per day to Santana Cave. The conclusion of the study is that Santana Cave has an atmosphere that is highly connected with the outside; daily variations in temperature and, to a lesser extent, in the relative humidity occur throughout the entire studied area of the cave. Therefore, the tourist carrying capacity in Santana Cave can be flexible and can be implemented based on the climate seasonality, the tourism demand and other management strategies.

  12. 14 C dating and isotopic composition of lacustrine sediment in the Vale do Ribeira, south-western Sao Paulo State

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This work is part of a multi and interdisciplinary study involving paleoenvironmental records based on systematic and joint actions of pollen, isotopic composition (12C, 13C and 14N, 15N) and 14C dating of lacustrine sediment. Samplings have been made in the Lagoa Grande located at Parque Estadual de Turismo do Alto Ribeira - PETAR, in the Vale do Ribeira, south-western Sao Paulo state. This integration must improve significantly the studies of vegetation and climate changes that occurred during the Late Pleistocene in the southeastern region of Brazil. The δ13C results of lacustrine sediment presented values from -23 to -30 per mille with isotopic tendencies of enrichment-depletion in the whole profile. The highest values of total organic carbon (TOC) and C/N associated with depleted δ13C values, were linked to organic matter from C3 land plant and interpreted as the presence of denser arboreal vegetation around the lake. The smallest values of TOC and C/N associated with enriched δ13C values were linked to phytoplanktonic influence and/or the presence of less dense arboreal vegetation around the lake. These fluctuations reflect changes in quality and quantity of sedimentary organic matter linked to vegetation changes and the production of organic matter within the sedimentation basin connected with lake level variations. The combination of C/N and δ13C data on a cross-plot diagram shows a general distribution of points lying close to the planktonic (algal) organic matter. However, the scattering of certain points indicates a slight contribution from C3 land plants. The variations in arboreal pollen (%AP) along the core are characterized by AP values between 40 and 80%. The 14C dating indicated Modern age at the shallow horizons to 1,030 years BP for the deeper horizon. (author)

    freshwater/saltwater mixing). Thus, the Ra isotopes provide fundamental information on the interaction of sediments, groundwater and estuarine waters. In this project, the distribution of natural Ra isotopes was studied in ix surface, groundwater and estuarine water samples collected from dry and wet seasons (2009 - 2010) campaigns performed in Ribeira Valley, Southern Sao Paulo State. The inventory allowed the application of Ra isotopes as tracers of fluvial and groundwater discharges to the Cananeia-Iguape estuarine complex. The exchange of groundwater/surface water in Ribeira do Iguape River basin and related fluxes of several constituents for the Cananeia-Iguape estuarine complex mass balance is still not very well known. The results obtained in this research work evidenced that there is a prevalence of {sup 228}Ra isotope in all the set of samples analyzed. However, the activity concentrations of Ra isotopes determined from Higher Ribeira Valley through the Southern Coastal Plain of Sao Paulo are representative of natural background levels, showing low or minimal human intervention. In the set of samples collected along Ribeira do Iguape River, Cananeia and Iguape outlets, the higher concentrations of Ra were observed in bottom waters, indicating the diffusion of {sup 228}Ra from sediments recently deposited as a potential source of the increased concentrations of this isotope when compared with others. The activity concentrations of the short-lived Ra isotopes were negligible, lower than the limit of the detection. Fluxes of Ra for Cananeia outlet are strongly influenced by tidal oscillations, which modulate the increase and decrease of Ra concentrations in response of the respective increase and decrease of waters salinity. In Iguape outlet and in hydrochemical stations performed along Ribeira do Iguape River it was observed a linear relationship between the amount of suspended matter and the increase of {sup 228}Ra activity concentration.

    In the central-northern Ribeira belt there are many granitic to granodioritic bodies showing varied shape and size, characterizing a late- to post-collisional Ca-alkaline, cordilleran I-type province. The Sao Pedro Granite occurs in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro State as small post-collisional bodies. It presents isotropic fabric, equigranular to seriate inequigranular texture, as well as local concentration of allanite, which gives discrete composition and texture variation to the rock. The granite has a high-K calcalkaline to alkali-calcic character and weakly peraluminous nature. Despite its short geochemical variation, high Ba, Zr and Th contents besides low concentrations of MgO and CaO are noticeable. High REE contents are associated with fractionated REE patterns showing strong negative Eu anomalies. A crustal origin for the granite can be assumed by its very negative and positive .Nd and .Sr values, respectively, as well as by 87Sr/86Sr initial ratios ranging from 0,718 to 0,740. TDM ages point to paleoproterozoic source, which agrees with geological time of intensive crust generation. (author)

  15. On the influence of environmental factors on radon levels in caves of Ribeira valley state parks, SP and evaluation of radioactive equilibrium and equilibrium factor between radon and its progeny

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the present study it was carried out the monitoring of radon in caves distributed among three state parks of Sao Paulo. The radon concentration were determinate in Morro Preto and Santana caves, located at PETAR - Parque Estadual Turistico do Alto Ribeira (High Ribeira River Tourist State Park), Diabo cave, situated in PEJ - Parque Estadual de Jacupiranga (Jacupiranga State Park) and Colorida cave located in PEI - Parque Estadual Intervales (Intervales State Park PEI). The monitoring covered measurements between April 2009 and June 2010. Radon concentrations were carried out by using the technique of passive detection with CR-39 solid state nuclear track detectors and NRPB diffusion chambers. The detectors were exposed in periods ranging from 30 to 150 days. Radon concentrations varied from 132 Bq/m3 to 9456 Bq/m3. The values of radon concentrations were analyzed together with information about rainfall and internal and external temperature values of the Santana cave environment and regional literature values for a possible relationship between radon variations and weather information. Both the determinations of 22'6Ra in water samples collected in some caves and rivers and radon emanation from a stalactite collected at Santana cave allowed to verify that the radon in the caves comes from the walls rocks. The verification of the radioactive equilibrium between 222Rn, 218Po and '214Po in the exposed detectors was prejudiced by the high tracks densities, committing the methodology effectiveness. The annual effective dose was calculated for three values obtained from the literature for the equilibrium factor. Considering the most realistic scenario, with equilibrium factor of 0.5 and 52 working weeks, the annual effective dose was 5.1 mSv/y. Concerning the worst scenario, which simulates an extreme case, adopting an equilibrium factor equal to 1 and 52 weeks of work per year, the annual effective dose is 10.2 mSv/y.

  18. Chemical characterization of bottom sediments from Ribeira de Iguape river, Parana and Sao Paulo states, Brazil, by instrumental neutron activation analysis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During several decades the Alto Vale of Ribeira region (SP-PR) suffered under lead mining activities in the region. Although in 1996 all such activities ceased, the mining activities left behind a huge amount of environmental liabilities mainly in the hydrographic basin of Ribeira de Iguape river. In the present study the chemical characterization of bottom sediments was undertaken and the concentration of the major (Ca, Fe, K and Na), trace (As, Ba, Br, Co, Cs, Hf, Rb, Sb, Ta, Th, U, Zn) and rare earth elements (La, Ce, Eu, Nd, Sm, Lu, Tb, Yb and Sc) by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) were determined. The validation of the analytical methodology was performed by means of certified reference materials analyses and Z-score criterion was used. Eight points were sampled at the Ribeira de Iguape river and its majorities from Adrianopolis (Pr) (site 01) to Registro (SP) (site 08). Granulometric analyses and textural classification were undertaken in the sediment samples. The results obtained by using INAA were compared to UCC (Upper Continental Crust) reference values. The environmental tools of Enrichment Factor (EF) and Geochemical Index (GI) were used to assess the degree of metal contamination in the sediment samples. Samples from site 5 (Betari river - Iporanga, SP) presented high values for As, Sb and Zn and greater IGeo (3.1 - 5.5) and EF (>7.0) values for these elements classifying this point as highly polluted for these elements as well as a strong anthropogenic contribution. Site 7 (Ribeira river - Eldorado, SP) was considered moderately polluted for As, Br and Sb. The high concentration levels of some metals and metalloids reflect the contribution of mining activities from the past in the region. From the results it can be seen that although mining activities no longer exist since 1996, the deleterious effects in the environment are still present and strong. (author)

    Full Text Available Cet article a pour objectif de mettre en valeur la contribution de Charles Bally à la diversité linguistique contemporaine et en particulier son influence sur la linguistique de la parole de Petar Guberina. L’affectivité dans la cognition et dans l’expression est le sujet central des deux chercheurs. Nous parlerons d’abord du cadre théorique saussurien qui est le point de départ des deux linguistes. Ensuite nous suivrons le parcours de la linguistique stylistique à la théorie de l’énonciation et à la linguistique de la parole, ainsi que le passage théorique du sujet parlant au sujet communiquant. Autrement dit, dans la langue parlée et dans le discours, tout dépend du choix de l’Homme, être communiquant. La cognition et l’énonciation de l’être communiquant intègrent l’affectivité. Il n’y a ni pensée ni énonciation sans affectivité de l’être communiquant. C’est pourquoi il faut observer et expliquer la vraie valeur logique et affective des procédés humains de communication dans leur unité découlant d’une structuration dynamique permanente.

    This report documents current (2005-06) baseline ground-water conditions in three basins within the West African Republic of Cape Verde (Mosteiros on Fogo, Ribeira Paul on Santo Ant?o, and Ribeira Faj? on S?o Nicolau) based on existing data and additional data collected during this study. Ground-water conditions (indicators) include ground-water levels, ground-water recharge altitude, ground-water discharge amounts, ground-water age (residence time), and ground-water quality. These indicators are needed to evaluate (1) long-term changes in ground-water resources or water quality caused by planned ground-water development associated with agricultural projects in these basins, and (2) the feasibility of artificial recharge as a mitigation strategy to offset the potentially declining water levels associated with increased ground-water development. Ground-water levels in all three basins vary from less than a few meters to more than 170 meters below land surface. Continuous recorder and electric tape measurements at three monitoring wells (one per basin) showed variations between August 2005 and June 2006 of as much as 1.8 meters. Few historical water-level data were available for the Mosteiros or Ribeira Paul Basins. Historical records from Ribeira Faj? indicate very large ground-water declines during the 1980s and early 1990s, associated with dewatering of the Galleria Faj? tunnel. More-recent data indicate that ground-water levels in Ribeira Faj? have reached a new equilibrium, remaining fairly constant since the late 1990s. Because of the scarcity of observation wells within each basin, water-level data were combined with other techniques to evaluate ground-water conditions. These techniques include the quantification of ground-water discharge (well withdrawals, spring discharge, seepage to springs, and gallery drainage), field water-quality measurements, and the use of environmental tracers to evaluate sources of aquifer recharge, flow paths, and ground

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This thesis presents a research focused on technology management applied to technical and economic viability study for the installation of a multi propose irradiator in Vale do Ribeira. First, the work presents the regional characteristics that shows Vale do Ribeira as the less economically developed region of Sao Paulo state. On the other side, it shows the emergence of irradiation techniques applied to the food industry, with accepted and recommended results by international authorities. Technology management, from the conceptual basis here presented, links regional environment reality to available technical knowledge, in search of regional development. The methodology was composed by the use of bibliographical, qualitative and quantitative research, and the analysis was supported by the use of statistical techniques and economic viability analysis. The present research concludes that there is technical and economic viability of the venture here analyzed, although it should be recommended more studies about banana irradiation and about Brazilian consumer acceptance to irradiated food products.

    The presence of IgM antibodies to Rocio in sera of two children from rural area of Ribeira Valley, Brazil, was detected by MAC-ELISA. This new arbovirus of the Flaviviridae family was responsible for an extensive encephalitis epidemic that occurred in the region in 1975-1977. Since 1980 no human disease caused by this virus has been diagnosed. An improvement on surveillance of Rocio infections and on the researches for virus identification in suspected vectors and reservoirs is necessary.

    Described half a century ago, the Galiléia tonalite represents a milestone in the discovery of plate margin magmatic arcs in the Araçuaí-Ribeira orogenic system (southeastern Brazil). In the 1990's, analytical studies on the Galiléia tonalite finally revealed the existence of a Late Neoproterozoic calc-alkaline magmatic arc in the Araçuaí orogen. Meanwhile, the name Rio Doce magmatic arc was applied to calc-alkaline plutons found in the Araçuaí-Ribeira boundary. After those pioneer studies, the calc-alkaline plutons showing a pre-collisional volcanic arc signature and age between 630 Ma and 585 Ma have been grouped in the G1 supersuite, corresponding to the Rio Doce arc infrastructure. Here, we revisit the Rio Doce arc with our solid field knowledge of the region and a robust analytical database (277 lithochemical analyses, and 47 U-Pb, 53 Sm-Nd, 25 87Sr/86Sr and 7 Lu-Hf datasets). The G1 supersuite consists of regionally deformed, tonalitic to granodioritic batholiths and stocks, generally rich in melanocratic to mesocratic enclaves and minor gabbroic to dioritic plutons. Gabbroic to dioritic enclaves show evidence of magma mixing processes. The lithochemical and isotopic signatures clearly reveal a volcanic arc formed on a continental margin setting. Melts from a Rhyacian basement form the bulk of the magma produced, whilst gabbroic plutons and enclaves record involvement of mantle magmas in the arc development. Tonalitic stocks (U-Pb age: 618-575 Ma, εNd(t): -5.7 to -7.8, Nd TDM ages: 1.28-1.68 Ga, 87Sr/86Sr(t): 0.7059-0.7118, and εHf(t): -5.2 to -11.7) form the northernmost segment of the Rio Doce arc, which dies out in the ensialic sector of the Araçuaí orogen. At arc eastern and central zones, several batholiths (e.g., Alto Capim, Baixo Guandu, Galiléia, Muniz Freire, São Vítor) record a long-lasting magmatic history (632-580 Ma; εNd(t): -5.6 to -13.3; Nd TDM age: 1.35-1.80 Ga; 87Sr/86Sr(t): 0.7091-0.7123).

    The watershed region of the Ribeira do Iguape River and the estuarine complex of the Paranagua-Iguape- Cananeia and the various river basins located between this region and the Atlantic Ocean, is known as the Ribeira Valley. The Ribeira do Iguape River runs a total length of approximately 470 km, being the main source of fresh water in the Estuarine Complex of the Iguape-Cananeia-Paranagua (Lagamar). The Ribeira do Iguape River is the last major river in the State of Sao Paulo that has not been altered by dams. During virtually the entire 20th century, the region of the Ribeira Valley was the scene of constant environmental degradation resulting from the intense exploration and refining of lead, zinc and silver ores that were processed in the mines of the region, in a rudimentary way and without any control over environmental impacts. Since 1996, all such activities ceased, however, leaving behind a huge amount of environmental liabilities. This study aims to investigate the presence and concentration levels of metals and semi-metals arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) in the sediment and water of aquatic systems of Ribeira do Iguape River and its tributaries, for an environmental assessment and monitoring of the region. The determination of these elements was carried out by GF AAS technique for water samples and ICP OES for the sediment samples. This study also assessed the occurrence of some major (Ca, Fe, K and Na), trace (As, Ba, Br, Co, Cs, Hf, Rb, Sb, Sc, Se, Ta, Th, U, Zn) and rare earth elements (La, Ce, Eu, Nd, Sm, Lu, Tb and Yb) by Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA). Validation of both methodologies, according to precision and accuracy, was done by reference material analyses. The results obtained for As, Cd and Pb were compared to the Canadian Environmental oriented values (TEL and PEL). The results obtained for multielemental analyses in the sediment samples were compared to UCC values (Upper Continental Crust). (author)

    Ribeira do Iguape Basin, located in the Southeast region of Sao Paulo state, is the largest remaining area of Mata Atlantica which biodiversity as rich as Amazon forest , where the readiness of water versus demand is extremely positive. With sparse population density and economy almost dependent on banana agriculture, the region is still well preserved. To water supply SABESP (Sao Paulo State Basic Sanitation Company). Ribeira do Iguape Businesses Unit - RR, uses different types of water supplies. In the present work, in order to ascertain water quality for human consumption, major and minor elements were evaluated in various types of water supply (surface and groundwater's as well as the drinking water supplied). Forty three producing systems were monitored: 18 points of surface waters and treated distributed water, 10 points of groundwater and 15 points of surface water in preserved areas, analyzing 30 elements. Bottom sediments (fraction < 63 {mu}m) were also evaluated. The sampling period covered dry and wet seasons from March 2002 to February 2003. The descriptive analysis showed that Al, Fe and Mn, exceeding CONAMA 357 quality guideline. A comparison of the elemental concentrations with the Brazilian Drinking Water Legislation (Portaria 518/04) showed that with the exception of some violations, the levels of all the elements investigated were below the Brazilian Legislation maximum allowed concentrations. This study examined the relationship between the type of water supply and the quality of water used, showed different characteristics on Ca, Fe, Mn concentration. In bottom sediments (fraction <63 {mu}m), Al, Fe and Mg largest concentrations were found. Pb and Zn presents concentrations up to 142,0 {mu}g.g{sup -1} and 172 {mu}g.g{sup -1}, respectively. Data revealed that trace elements concentration in the sediment were below PEL (Probable Effect Level - probable level of adverse effect to the biological community), exception for Pb in Sete Barras and

    The aim of this paper is to analyze the occurrence of floods facing the rate of urbanization in the Ribeira Valley. The Ribeira Valley is located on the basin of Ribeira de Iguape River in eastern Paraná and southeastern São Paulo state in Brazil. The region has been considered one of the most important international conservation priorities by agencies such as the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the UNESCO/MAB Program. This region has a history of recurrent floods, causing huge financial losses particularly to the poorest people, including casualties as well as material losses. This study analyzed three flood events that occurred in January 1995, January 1997 and February-March 1998, reaching the towns of Eldorado, Ribeira and Sete Barras. To determine the affected areas, the researchers used the shapes (digital data) obtained from the Geographic Information System of Ribeira de Iguape River Basin which is maintained by the Ribeira de Iguape River Basin and South Seashore Committee. The SPRING was the processing tool used for data manipulation. Additionally we used rainfall data, flow and water level elevation for the years 1983, 1995, 1997, 1998 and 2011. The results show that in January 1997 there happened the largest flood area across the three cities and this effect coincides with the highest levels of rainfall and flow. The second largest flood happened in January 1995 and the smallest one was in February-March 1998. Another important aspect to be noted is that all floods affected a large floodplain in both rural and urban areas. It was also found a direct relationship between the rate of urbanization and the area affected by the floods. The results show that the larger the area of urbanization, the larger the flooded area. It was also verified in the precipitation climatology that most extreme events occurred in 1983 and 2011. Specifically the 2011 event occurred during dry season bringing the whole region to a state of

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ribeira Bay is located approximately 130 km south of the city of Rio de Janeiro and receives discharges of liquid effluent from the Angra dos Reis nuclear power plant (NPP) site, where two pressurized water reactors are located. To test whether the presence of anthropogenic radionuclides in sediments in Ribeira Bay could be correlated to the NPP operations, we sampled seven sediment cores and determined accumulation rates and chronologies. Only one sediment core did not exhibit a superficial mixing layer; this sample was used for dating purposes. Cesium-137 and 207Bi were observed in this sediment profile, but their presence was associated with atmospheric fall-out rather than the nearby NPP. The exponential decay of 210Pb concentration with sediment layer depth was verified below a superficial mixing layer for all other sediment cores. Calculated accumulation rates ranged from 1.2 mm y-1 in the inner bay to 6.2 mm y-1 close to its entrance. - Graphical abstract: Display Omitted Highlights: → We have dated seven sediment cores on the region close to the Angra dos Reis nuclear power plant site. → Cs-137 and Bi-207 were detected and were used as a tool to validate the Pb-210 dating results. → The spatial variation of the Pb-210 flux indicates two main sources of sediments: the channel between Ilha Grande (Grande Island), and the continental and soil runoff from the adjacent hills.

Em se tratando de comunidades tropicamente relacionadas, os índices de diversidade e o quociente de similaridade podem fornecer esclarecimentos sobre a relação entre os recursos alimentares e sua distribuição, considerados como importantes na avaliação de possível endofilia. Os dados obtidos sugerem a possível existência de comportamento endófilo em evolução, por parte de Ae. scapularis, Cx. ribeirensis e Cx. sacchettae. Todavia as evidências indicam a influência exercida pela presença de hospedeiros domésticos de grande porte e do comportamento humano nos ambientes domiciliar e alterado. Conclui-se pela possível existência de variações desse comportamento nas três citadas espécies.Results of mosquito collections in two Ribeira Valley localities are presented. These places represents environments highly modified by agrarian and cattle raising activities. The collections were made by the aspiration method, in the search for resting mosquitoes, in all the domiciliary and peridomiciliary compounds, in the early morning. The use of the diversity index and similarity quotient on communities such as these that are tropically related gives some insight into resources and their distribution. So they are considered of great value for the endophily studies. Data obtained suggest that there is some degree of endophilic evolution in Ae. scapularis, Cx. ribeirensis and Cx. sacchettae. This behavior is subject to the influence of some extrinsic factors such as the density of cattle or other large domestic animals, and human behaviour in the management of the environment.

  19. Availability of metals Cd and Pb and metalloid As in the Ribeira do Iguape River hydrographic basin and its tributaries: an environmental contamination assessment'

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During several decades the Alto Vale of Ribeira region (SP-PR) was under influence of lead mining activities, refined and processed in the mines of the region. Since 1996, all such activities ceased, however, leaving behind a huge amount of environmental liabilities. This study aimed to investigate the presence and concentration levels of metals cadmium (Cd) and lead (Pb) and metalloid arsenic (As) in the water, sediment and biota (fish blood) in the aquatic systems of Ribeira do Iguape River and its tributaries, for an environmental assessment and monitoring of the region. The sampling collection occurred in 8 sites and fish samples were caught by fishing nets and blood sampling was done in the site. The determination of these elements was carried out by atomic absorption spectrometry with graphite furnace electro thermal heating (GF AAS). This study also assessed the occurrence of some major (Ca, Fe, K and Na), trace (As, Ba, Br, Co, Cs, Hf, Rb, Sb, Sc, Se, Ta, Th, U, Zn) and rare earth elements (La, Ce, Eu, Nd, Sm, Lu, Tb and Yb) by Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA). Validation of both methodologies, regarding precision and accuracy, was done by reference material analyses. The results obtained for As, Cd and Pb in the sediment were compared to the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME), TEL (Threshold Effect Level) e PEL (Probable Effect Level) adopted by CETESB and CONAMA 454/2012 Resolution. The results for As, Cd and Pb in water samples were below the QL of the analytical technique used, indicating that these elements are in concentration levels that do not affect the water quality standard established by CONAMA 357/2005.

  2. Regional elevation history from Ribeira belt based in K-Ar dating

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Ribeira orogenic belt, Brazilian cycle in metamorphism, has biotite K-Ar ages becoming young from the border (600 Ma) to the central axis (450 Ma), these ages are not related to rock type nor intrusive phase, but to occurrence area. The fact suggests that this wide-ranging age distribution is not due to later thermal events, e.g. post tectonic intrusion, but to slow cooling on the axis zone. The climax metamorphic condition have been estimated as 675 sup(0)C and 4 to 5 kb (18 km's depth). This temperature is much higher than that of biotite argon retention (310 sup(0)C). These data indicate that the biotite K-Ar clock have been set fairly after the climax during regional uplift at a depth much shallower that the metamorphism. Biotite clock setting depth (310 sup(0)C) is calculated as 7.5 km, using geothermal gradient of 30 sup(0)C/km. In this connection, uplift of 11.5 km from 600 Ma to 450 Ma (rate of 77 m/m.y.) is estimated. Fission track datings in apatite (110 Ma), combined with a present geothermal gradient (25 sup(0)C/km) indicate uplift of 3.5 km from 450 Ma to 110 Ma (16 m/m.y.) and 4 km from 110 Ma to the present (35 m/m.y.).

  3. Proposal for the further development of the 'Ribeira Grande' agricultural geothermal project

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Geothermal project Ribeira Grande has been the first trial to introduce the possibilities of direct application of geothermal energy at Azores. As all the first experiences, it's development has been escorted with a list of difficulties and problems, resulting with non proper completion of some systems and installations. However, even not complete, the reached results justified both technically and economically the indigenous resource door for further activities and development. Presented proposal for the second phase of project development consists two very important advantages: 1) Enables development of new demonstration and productive projects, without engaging new import of fuels or other energents; 2) Enables development based on the already existing economy sectors at the islands and makes them more profitable and accommodated to the requests of the national and international market. However, influencing national and international preconditions for the realization of the proposed activities are not very convenient and are requesting a concentrate engagement of the Institute for Innovative Technologies of Azores INOVA during the period of next 5 years. The final success of this engagement shall open very wide possibilities for direct application of geothermal energy development in this isolated EC community, presently mainly orientated towards import both of energy and food.

    Full Text Available Este estudo sobre as parteiras, o partejar e a noção de pessoa em Ribeira da Barca visa analisar como as técnicas utilizadas no parto se relacionam com a constituição da pessoa. Essa reflexão passa necessariamente por uma discussão da noção de pessoa como indivíduo total, onde não existe uma fronteira visível entre a natureza e a cultura. Essa forma como se constrói a noção de pessoa é verificável na maneira como se molda o corpo na gravidez, no parto e no pós-parto. Neste estudo é usado o método etnográfico de pesquisa pela ênfase conferida às práticas sociais. Nessa ótica, é analisada como se dá forma ao corpo, partindo do princípio que este é passível de ser moldado, dinâmico e com fluxos vitais, integrado nos ciclos da vida e do ambiente (onde não existe uma fronteira visível entre natureza e cultura. É importante concluir que em Ribeira da Barca a pessoa é relacional, que se dá através da relação com os outros e consigo mesma

    Full Text Available From 1986 to 1992, I surveyed the invertebrate fauna of twelve limestone caves from South Ribeira Valley (State of Paraná, Brazil. Associated to walls in the entrace zone live Enoploctenus and Blechroscelis spiders, Goniosoma opilionids, Strinalia crickets, Latebraria amphipyroides moths, and Culicidae and Sciaridae dipterans. In aphotic zone, occur Plato spiders, Daguerreia inermis opilionids, Pseudonannolene strinatii diplopods, Smicridea caddisflies and the aquatic crustacean Aegla paulensis. I found in both zones Ctenus fasciatus spiders. Paronella collembolans, Zelurus travassosi heteropterans, Cholevidae and Anthribidae beetles, Phoridae dipterans and Braconidae wasps. One of the most important energy sources in these caves is the hematophagous bat guano. Associated to the guano piles there is a fauna composed by psedoscorpiones, acarians, Katantodesmus diplopods, Acherontides and Paronella collembolans, Dissochaetus beetles and Phoridae dipterans. The cave fauna studied is similar to that Ribeira Valley of the State of São Paulo. The most expressive difference is the absence of some taxa very common in São Paulo caves, such as the Oniscidae and Styloniscidae isopods, Cryptodesmidae and Chelodesmidae diplopods. Endecous crickets, Tricommatidae harvestmen, Calamoceratidae caddisflies and Neoditomyia Keroplatidae dipterans.

    The central segment of Ribeira Belt, southeastern brazil, comprises several tectonic domains where, during the Proterozoic, extensive detritic material was deposited over pre-1.8 Ga basement rocks. This paper presents Sm-Nd isotopic data on the high-grade metasedimentary rocks of this belt and discusses some possible implications on their sedimentary provenance. The pre-1.8 Ga basement rocks display different Nd isotopic evolution and thus can be promptly discriminated as sources of different Nd model ages (T{sub DM}) and isotopic characteristics such as: Mantiqueira such as: Mantiqueira Complex, 3.0 and 2.6 Ga T{sub DM} isochrons ages; Juiz de Fora Complex, 2.2 Ga T{sub DM} isochron age and Quirino Complex, 2.0 Ga and 3.2 Ga T{sub DM} ages. At the Juiz de Fora Domain, metapelites from the Andrelandia Depositional Cycle display a very narrow range of Sm/Nd values (0.15 to 0.17) and T{sub DM} ages between 1.8 and 2.0 Ga. The corresponding measured {epsilon}{sub Nd} values [{epsilon}{sub Nd} (0)] vary between -20.8 and -29.1. The metapsammopelites of the Jardim Gloria Unit, in the same geologic domain, display very different isotopic characteristics: higher Sm/Nd ratios (0.22 and 0.24), lower {epsilon}{sub Nd} (0) values (-15.3 and -18.3) and Neoarchean T{sub DM} ages (2.5 and 2.6 Ga). At the Paraiba do Sul Klippe, the analyzed metapelites from the middle unit of Paraiba do Sul group show T{sub DM} ages close to 1.7 Ga with e{sub ND} (0) values of -14.10 and -17.34. The metapsammopelites from the basal and uppermost units plot the 2.0 Ga T{sub DM} isochron and display {epsilon}{sub Nd} (0) values vary between-21 and -32. An isolated T{sub DM} of an amphibolitic body, probably intrusive in the metasedimentary rocks of Paraiba do Sul Group, yields 1.0 Ga T{sub DM} age, with a {sup 147} Sm/{sup 144} Nd value of 0.1428.

    Full Text Available Petar Konjović (Čurug, May 5, 1883 - Belgrade, October 1, 1970 stands out among Serbian composers as an author of instrumental and vocal compositions. Studies at the Prague Conservatory (1904-1906 acquainted Konjović with Czech music, Wagner's opus, and the Russian national-romantic school, which contributed to the evolution of his talent for both music and stage, enabling him to express his ideas more explicitly in operatic works. It was in the Prague that the second opera - Prince of Zeta - was conceived, with new musical vividness and dramatic appeal (first version composed 1906-1926, the second and final 1929-1939, followed by Koštana (1928, Peasants (1951 and Fatherland (1960. Konjović's mature operas are characterized by his masterful handling of form, both in close-ups and in detail, as well as his deeply individual assimilation of musical folklore into his work. The Prince of Zeta is not to be understood as a folk opera, but some main themes are directly derived from folk music, precisely from the Montenegrin folk songs quoted in the Mokranjac's Ninth Garland and treated in Konjović's post-romantic, almost expressionistic way, interwoven with some Italianate leitmotifs, so as to present the opera's two worlds, Montenegrin and Venetian. In the process of forming Konjović's operatic style, with vocal parts based mainly on the principle of declamation, the opera Prince of Zeta (first performed in Belgrade, 1929, conducted by Lovro von Matačić proved to be a work of great impact. Hardly anyone grasped then the wide sweep of inspiration which allowed the composer to set and to solve several important problems connected with music drama, essential also in his subsequent stage works. First of all, Konjović had to handle in his own way the verbal drama the prototype of his opera, Maxim Crnojević by the Serbian poet Laza Kostić (1841-1910. Permission came from the playwright in the first decade of the 1900, Prince of Zeta being partly

    2001-03-01

    Full Text Available At the end of the geotectonic cycle that shaped the northern segment of the Ribeira Mobile Belt (Upper Proterozoic to Paleozoic age, a late to post-collisional set of plutonic complexes, consisting of a wide range of lithotypes, intruded all metamorphic units. The Várzea Alegre Intrusive Complex is a post-collisional complex. The younger intrusion consists of an inversely zoned multistage structure envolved by a large early emplaced ring of megaporphyritic charnoenderbitic rocks. The combination of field, petrographic and geochemical data reveals the presence of at least two different series of igneous rocks. The first originated from the partial melting of the mantle. This was previously enriched in incompatible elements, low and intermediate REE and some HFS-elements. A second enrichment in LREE and incompatible elements in this series was due to the mingling with a crustal granitic magma. This mingling process changed the composition of the original tholeiitic magma towards a medium-K calc-alkalic magma to produce a suite of basic to intermediate rock types. The granitic magma from the second high-K, calc-alkalic suite originated from the partial melting of the continental crust, but with strong influence of mantle-derived melts.No final do ciclo tectônico que originou o segmento norte do Cinturão Móvel Ribeira (de idade Proterozóica Superior a Paleozóica, uma série de complexos plutônicos tardi- a pós-colisionais, consistindo de larga gama de litotipos, intrudiu todas as unidades metamórficas.

  16. Neoproterozoic Western Gondwana assembly and subduction-related plutonism: the role of the Rio Negro Complex in the Ribeira Belt, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The assembly of Western Gondwana, during the Neoproterozoic, involved the Sao Francisco/West Congo Craton and its passive margins. The Ribeira Belt lies along the Brazilian Atlantic Coast and is one of the products of the super continent amalgamation. Collisional processes were preceded by subduction, recorded by the Rio Negro Complex orthogneisses at the Ribeira Belt. Its plutonites represent a gabbro-diorite-tonalite-throndhjemite plutonic series that evolved from 637 Ma (U-Pb zircon age of the tonalite gneiss) to nearly 600 Ma, at the beginning of the collisional event. Field, petrographic, litogeochemical, and isotopic characteristics of the Rio Negro Complex point to magmatism at a very mature oceanic arc or an immature continental crust as seen along attenuated passive margins. in the latter hypothesis, the margin could be related to a microplate or to the Congo/Angola Craton.

  19. Assessment of natural radioactivity levels in waters from the higher Ribeira Valley to the southern Sao Paulo state coastal plain

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    information on the interaction of sediments, groundwater and estuarine waters. In this project, the distribution of natural Ra isotopes was studied in ix surface, groundwater and estuarine water samples collected from dry and wet seasons (2009 - 2010) campaigns performed in Ribeira Valley, Southern Sao Paulo State. The inventory allowed the application of Ra isotopes as tracers of fluvial and groundwater discharges to the Cananeia-Iguape estuarine complex. The exchange of groundwater/surface water in Ribeira do Iguape River basin and related fluxes of several constituents for the Cananeia-Iguape estuarine complex mass balance is still not very well known. The results obtained in this research work evidenced that there is a prevalence of 228Ra isotope in all the set of samples analyzed. However, the activity concentrations of Ra isotopes determined from Higher Ribeira Valley through the Southern Coastal Plain of Sao Paulo are representative of natural background levels, showing low or minimal human intervention. In the set of samples collected along Ribeira do Iguape River, Cananeia and Iguape outlets, the higher concentrations of Ra were observed in bottom waters, indicating the diffusion of 228Ra from sediments recently deposited as a potential source of the increased concentrations of this isotope when compared with others. The activity concentrations of the short-lived Ra isotopes were negligible, lower than the limit of the detection. Fluxes of Ra for Cananeia outlet are strongly influenced by tidal oscillations, which modulate the increase and decrease of Ra concentrations in response of the respective increase and decrease of waters salinity. In Iguape outlet and in hydrochemical stations performed along Ribeira do Iguape River it was observed a linear relationship between the amount of suspended matter and the increase of 228Ra activity concentration. When we evaluate qualitatively the differences in behavior of both long-lived Ra isotopes, the concentrations of 226Ra

    Full Text Available In April 1998 urine samples from adult female buffaloes were collected in a farm located in Registro, Vale do Ribeira, São Paulo State, Brazil. The urine samples obtained after furosemide injection were immediately transported to the laboratory in liquid modified EMJH medium and seeded, by the serial dilution technique, into Fletcher's or modified EMJH-0.2% agar, both of them with 5-fluorouracil 100mg/mL. The intraperitoneoum inoculation of 0.5 mL was also performed with each urine sample in young, adult hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus. All samples seeded directly in culture medium were contaminated. The hamsters did not show any sign of disease and were killed at the 21st post inoculation day. At this time kidney cultures of these animals were performed and from one of them, one leptospira strain (M04-98 was isolated, identified as belonging to serogroup Sejroe by Microscopic Agglutination Test (MAT with a panel of 36 rabbit sera against serovars representative for the pathogenic serogroups. Subsequently, MAT was carried out with antisera against the 19 reference strains of serogroup Sejroe, revealing a close relationship with serovar guaricura. Afterwards the MAT was done with a panel of 18 monoclonal antibodies representative for serovars of serogroup Sejroe. The histogram closely resembled that of serovar guaricura. So Cross Agglutination Absorption Test (CAAT was carried out with the buffalo isolate and serovar guaricura, supporting the relationship between the buffalo isolate and serovar guaricura.

    Full Text Available Regarding the lack of studies about lotic eutrophication, mainly for tropical rivers, this research aimed to assess the density of phytoplanktonic community of two tropical rivers located in Ribeira do Iguape Watershed (São Paulo state, Brazil, Canha and Pariquera-Açu Rivers, based on sampling campaigns in January and April, 2007. These results were compared to the mTSI (mean Trophic State Index values. This index was originally developed for lentic aquatic systems and its calculus depends on total phosphorous, orthophosphate and chlorophyll-a concentrations in water samples. Comparing mTSI values in all sampling stations with the phytoplankton quantitative results, it was possible to verify that mTSI may overestimate the trophic state of lotic ecosystems, since the phosphorus species that integrate its calculus contributed to an improper augmentation on mTSI, which were incompatible with the real associated biological response. Thus, for April sampling, although mTSI values were higher, in general, phytoplankton density were lower (minimum of 83 indmL-1 for Canha River and of 66 indmL-1 for Pariquera-Açu River. In this case, the high total phosphorous concentrations by themselves were not enough to promote proportional phytoplanktonic growth, which was probably limited by other factors, like water temperature, suspended solids concentration, river discharge and zooplanktonic predation. In January, on the other hand, mTSI values were lower, but total phytoplankton density was higher. For this sampling, the lower orthophosphate concentrations in water pointed phytoplankton assimilation of this nutrient.

  8. Growth rates in modern speleothems from Santana Cave, Brazil, by the 210Pb-method

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Santana Cave is located at the Upper Ribeira Touristic State Park (PETAR-Parque Estadual Turístico do Alto Ribeira) in southern São Paulo State, Brazil. This paper describes 210Pb activity concentration data in soda straw stalactites samples collected at Salão das Flores in Santana Cave that is a fossil tributary of the cave river. Non-expensive alpha counting following some analytical steps for extracting and depositing 210Po were used for providing the 210Pb data. In the analyzed samples, 210Pb values of increasingly older samples fitted an exponential curve, thus suggesting that the production of 210Pb has been constant with time. Also, the near-ideal fit indicated that the growth was uniform and there was no break in the continuous growth. The soda straw growth rates were determined from the best fit to the exponential curve through the 210Pb activity concentration. The results of the measurements allowed estimate a longitudinal rate corresponding to 1.3 mm/yr and a lateral rate of 0.01 mm/yr, which permitted calculate times of 70 years and 317–498 years for their formation, respectively. The lateral growth rate is compatible with values from studies of chemical weathering rates held under laboratory and natural conditions.

  10. Post-collisional multistage magmatism in the Ribeira mobile belt: geochemical and isotopic study of the Varzea Alegre intrusive complex, Espirito Santo, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Varzea Alegre Intrusive Complex (VAIC) corresponds to a post-collisional (late orogenic) pluton, related to the Brasiliano cycle, situated in the central part of the Espirito Santo State. It intrudes amphibolite to granulite facies metamorphic rocks of the Ribeira Belt. Two distinct domains were recognised in this zoned pluton: an inner domain with opx-gabbro, monzogabbro, diorite, quartz-diorite and megaporphyritic granite, and an outer one comprising an irregular and large ring of charnockitic rocks. Geochemical data from the former reveal medium to high-K calc-alkalic rocks, enriched in incompatible elements, mainly Ba, Sr, La, Ce and Pb and partially depleted in HFS elements. The charnockitic rocks show a high-K alkali-calcic signature; they are rich in Ba, K and some HFS elements, such a Zr, P and Nb. The incompatible element enrichment detected in the rocks of the VAIC has been reported for several intrusions from this part of the Ribeira Belt. A Rb-Sr isochronic age of 508± 12 Ma was determined for the megaporphyritic granite. The TDM model age varies from 1.3 Ga (opx-gabbro) to ca. 1.67 Ga (charnockitic rocks), which can be related to an important Mesoproterozoic crustal event. The calculated TCHUR model ages of the cogenetic opx-gabbros and intermediary rocks is ca. 1.0 Ga, interpreted as the time when the basic magma was extracted from the source. (author)

    Fluid inclusion microthermometry and structural data are presented for quartz vein systems of a major dextral transcurrent shear zone of Neoproterozoic-Cambrian age in the Ribeira River Valley area, southeastern Brazil. Geometric and microstructural constraints indicate that foliation-parallel and extensional veins were formed during dextral strike-slip faulting. Both vein systems are formed essentially by quartz and lesser contents of sulfides and carbonates, and were crystallized in the presence of CO 2-CH 4 and H 2O-CO 2-CH 4-NaCl immiscible fluids following unmixing from a homogeneous parental fluid. Contrasting fluid entrapment conditions indicate that the two vein systems were formed in different structural levels. Foliation-parallel veins were precipitated beneath the seismogenic zone under pressure fluctuating from moderately sublithostatic to moderately subhydrostatic values (319-397 °C and 47-215 MPa), which is compatible with predicted fluid pressure cycle curves derived from fault-valve action. Growth of extensional veins occurred in shallower structural levels, under pressure fluctuating from near hydrostatic to moderately subhydrostatic values (207-218 °C and 18-74 MPa), which indicate that precipitation occurred within the near surface hydrostatically pressured seismogenic zone. Fluid immiscibility and precipitation of quartz in foliation-parallel veins resulted from fluid pressure drop immediately after earthquake rupture. Fluid immiscibility following a local pressure drop during extensional veining occurred in pre-seismic stages in response to the development of fracture porosity in the dilatant zone. Late stages of fluid circulation within the fault zone are represented dominantly by low to high salinity (0.2 to 44 wt.% equivalent NaCl) H 2O-NaCl-CaCl 2 fluid inclusions trapped in healed fractures mainly in foliation-parallel veins, which also exhibit subordinate H 2O-NaCl-CaCl 2, CO 2-(CH 4) and H 2O-CO 2-(CH 4)-NaCl fluid inclusions trapped

    Franchoo, Serge

    Alto is an infrastructure for experimental nuclear physics in France that comprises both an on-line isotope-separation facility based on the photofission of uranium and a stable-ion beam facility based on a 14.5-MV tandem accelerator. The isotope-separation on-line section of Alto is dedicated to the production of neutron-rich radioactive ion beams (RIB) from the interaction of the γ-flux induced by a 50-MeV 10-µA electron beam in a uranium-carbide target. It is dimensioned for 1011 fissions per second. The RIB facility is exploited in alternating mode with the tandem-based section of Alto, capable of accelerating both light ions for nuclear astrophysics and heavy ions for γ-spectroscopy. The facility thereby offers the opportunity to deliver beams to a large range of physics programmes from nuclear to interdisciplinary physics. In this article, we present the Alto facility as well as some of the highlights and prospects of the experimental programme.

  16. The utilization of geochemical parameters for the environmental monitoring of the Nuclear Power Center of Angra I, Ribeira Bay, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order that a geochemical balance be as complete as possible and thus, reach predictive values for toxic chemical dispersion, an understanding of the hydrological, sedimentological and geological contexts is fundamental. The dispersion of a polluent (in this case radionuclides) is dependent, in part, on its chemical properties and its interaction by sorption and desorption from solid particles (in particular, sediments). This interaction needs to be incorporated in dispersion models and can influence the passage of a pollutant along the food chain. In the case of Ribeira Bay, near the nuclear power center of Angra I, it was observed, through the analysis of sedimentological and geochemical parameters (TOC, TSS, chemical and mineralogical compositions, and granularity): an increase in absorption capacity of surface sediments owing to a homogeneous grain size distribution and a varying clay composition; a possibility of remobilization and transfer of particulate material to areas outside the bay.

  18. Metal partitioning in sediments and mineralogical controls on the acid mine drainage in Ribeira da Água Forte (Aljustrel, Iberian Pyrite Belt, Southern Portugal)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This work focuses on the geochemical processes taking place in the acid drainage in the Ribeira da Água Forte, located in the Aljustrel mining area in the Iberian Pyrite Belt. The approach involved water and stream sediment geochemical analyses, as well as other techniques such as sequential extraction, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Ribeira da Água Forte is a stream that drains the area of the old mine dumps of the Aljustrel mine, which have for decades been a source of acid waters. This stream flows to the north for a little over than 10 km, but mixes with a reduced, organic-rich, high pH waste water from the municipal waste water pools of the village. This water input produces two different results in the chemistry of the stream depending upon the season: (i) in the winter season, effective water mixing takes place, and the flux of acid water from the mine dumps is continuous, resulting in the immediate precipitation of the Fe from the acid waters; (ii) during the summer season, acid drainage is interrupted and only the waste water feeds the stream, resulting in the reductive dissolution of Fe hydroxides and hydroxysulfates in the stream sediments, releasing significant quantities of metals into solution. Throughout the year, water pH stays invariably within 4.0–4.5 for several meters downstream of this mixing zone even when the source waters come from the waste water pools, which have a pH around 8.4. The coupled interplay of dissolution and precipitation of the secondary minerals (hydroxides and sulfates), keeps the system pH between 3.9 and 4.5 all along the stream. In particular, evidence suggests that schwertmannite may be precipitating and later decomposing into Fe hydroxides to sustain the stream water pH at those levels. While Fe content decreases by 50% from solution, the most important trace metals are only slightly attenuated before the solution mixes with the Ribeira do Rôxo stream waters. Concentrations of As are the only ones

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The geochemistry dispersion of the metals in aquatic environment is related to the physical chemistry proprieties of these elements as to their interaction by sorption on and desorption from solid particles. These interaction must be understood within the environmental dynamic, with its hydrological, sedimentological, chemical, physical and biological processes that may take the toxic elements (stables metals and radionuclides) to the bio alimentary chain. It was observed at the Ribeira Bay, its hydrodynamic behaviour through the suspension material and particulate organic carbon dispersion. And, through the textural, mineralogical and chemical parameters it was observed the behaviour of the geochemistry processes of the sedimentary materials and the influence that they may submit to the metals dispersion.

    The ALTOS campaign focuses on operating a tethered observing system for routine in situ sampling of low-level (< 2 km) Arctic clouds. It has been a long-term hope to fly tethered systems at Barrow, Alaska, but it is clear that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will not permit in-cloud tether systems at Barrow, even if unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operations are allowed in the future. We have provided the scientific rationale for long-term, routine in situ measurements of cloud and aerosol properties in the Arctic. The existing restricted air space at Oliktok offers an opportunity to do so.

    Whole rock elemental and Sr-Nd isotope geochemistry and in situ K-feldspar Pb isotope geochemistry were used to identify the sources involved in the genesis of Neoproterozoic granites from the Embu Terrane, Ribeira Belt, SE Brazil. Granite magmatism spanned over 200 Ma (810-580 Ma), and is dominated by crust-derived relatively low-T (850-750 °C, zircon saturation) biotite granites to biotite-muscovite granites. Two Cryogenian plutons show the least negative εNdt (-8 to -10) and highest mg# (30-40) of the whole set. Their compositions are strongly contrasted, implying distinct sources for the peraluminous (ASI ∼ 1.2) ∼660 Ma Serra do Quebra-Cangalha batholith (metasedimentary rocks from relatively young upper crust with high Rb/Sr and low Th/U) and the metaluminous (ASI = 0.96-1.00) ∼ 630 Ma Santa Catarina Granite. Although not typical, the geochemical signature of these granites may reflect a continental margin arc environment, and they could be products of a prolonged period of oceanic plate consumption started at ∼810 Ma. The predominant Ediacaran (595-580 Ma) plutons have a spread of compositions from biotite granites with SiO2 as low as ∼65% (e.g., Itapeti, Mauá, Sabaúna and Lagoinha granites) to fractionated muscovite granites (Mogi das Cruzes, Santa Branca and Guacuri granites; up to ∼75% SiO2). εNdT are characteristically negative (-12 to -18), with corresponding Nd TDM indicating sources with Paleoproterozoic mean crustal ages (2.0-2.5 Ga). The Guacuri and Santa Branca muscovite granites have the more negative εNdt, highest 87Sr/86Srt (0.714-0.717) and lowest 208Pb/206Pb and 207Pb/206Pb, consistent with an old metasedimentary source with low time-integrated Rb/Sr. However, a positive Nd-Sr isotope correlation is suggested by data from the other granites, and would be consistent with mixing between an older source predominant in the Mauá granite and a younger, high Rb/Sr source that is more abundant in the Lagoinha granite sample.

  9. Production and study of fission fragments, from Lohengrin to Alto

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The study of nuclei far from stability is constitutive of the history of nuclear physics at its very beginning and has been making considerable great strides since then. The study of these nuclei give the opportunity to reach new information on the nuclear structure and thus to measure the solidity of our knowledge on nuclear matter and its validity when it is pushed to its limits. The reaction selected for the production of exotic nuclei in the framework of the PARRNe program is the fission of uranium 238. The nuclei produced have an intermediate mass and are very rich in neutrons. The technique to recover them in order to accelerate them is the thick target method called also the Isol technique. The installation of the ancient Lep injector at the Tandem line in Orsay (IPN) is expected to increase by a factor 100 the production rate of exotic nuclei in the PARRNe program, it is the Alto project. The work presented here concerns studies carried out at the Lohengrin spectrometer installed at the ILL in Grenoble, and at the Tandem installation in Orsay. This document is divided into 4 parts: 1) in flight techniques at Lohengrin, 2) the Isol technique, 3) magic numbers in the domain N=50, and 4) the Alto project

  11. Evidence of Neoproterozoic back arc basin development in the Central Ribeira Belt, southeastern Brazil: new geochronological and geochemical constraints from the Sao Roque - Acungui Groups

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Ribeira Belt (RB) of southeastern Brazil represents an important manifestation of the Brasiliano Orogeny formed during the assembly of West Gondwana. Contemporaneous sedimentation and volcanism within the RB provide a basis for helping understand its tectonic evolution and paleogeography. U-Pb monazite data from the basal metavolcanic rocks of the Sao Roque Group indicate a crystallization age of 628 Ma and the upper sequence is cut by a 605 Ma (U-Pb zircon) rhyolite intrusion. Zircon and monazite analyses of metavolcanic (mafic) rocks and from metagabbros of the lower Acungui supergroup yield crystallization ages of 614 and 617 ma, respectively. This supergroup is intruded by a 607 ma granite. Geochemical signatures of basal mafic units in both sequences are characteristic of E-MORB subalkaline tholeitic basaltic rocks. Nd isotopic signatures of the metamafic rocks indicate that they were derived in part from the asthenospheric mantle (consistent with emplacement in an extensional setting), whereas the felsic bodies appear to have come from the melting of paleoproterozoic lithosphere. The paleogeographic reconstruction of part of the RB suggests that the Sao Roque/Acungui groups represent extensional sequences, with features of backarc basins, which evolved during the syn-collisional phase of the Brasiliano Orogeny. These data support the hypothesis that we have a rapid evolution (10-20 ma) between extensional and compressional tectonics during the geological history of the Sao Roque/Acungui Backarc. (author)

    Full Text Available Developed in Ribeira do Iguape Watershed, one of the poorest regions in São Paulo state, Southeast Brazil, this research aimed to characterize the sediment of Jacupiranguinha and Pariquera-Açu Rivers. Eight sampling stations were demarcated on each river, covering strategic places. In all samples, organic matter content, total phosphorus and nitrogen, cadmium, lead, copper, manganese and mercury concentrations were determined. The results showed that the sediment of both rivers could be considered mineral, since the organic matter contents were all lower than 10%. There was evident increment on total phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations after the discharge of a fertilizers’ factory effluent, in Jacupiranguinha River, and after the effluent of a stabilization pound in Pariquera-Açu River. The highest copper, manganese and mercury concentrations were detected in Jacupiranguinha River sediment: 22.0 mg kg-1, 551.0 mg kg-1 e 0.15 mg kg-1 (Sampling Station 6, which corresponds to the discharge of the industrial effluent. The highest lead concentration was found in Pariquera-Açu River, 26.0 mg kg-1, in Sampling Station 8. Igeo (Geoaccumulation Index calculus revealed that the sediments of both rivers were not polluted by the metals that were quantified.

    Full Text Available Regarding the lack of studies about lotic eutrophication, mainly for tropical rivers, thisresearch aimed to assess the density of phytoplanktonic community of two tropical riverslocated in Ribeira do Iguape Watershed (São Paulo state, Brazil, Canha and Pariquera-AçuRivers, based on sampling campaigns in January and April, 2007. These results werecompared to the mTSI (mean Trophic State Index values. This index was originallydeveloped for lentic aquatic systems and its calculus depends on total phosphorous,orthophosphate and chlorophyll-a concentrations in water samples. Comparing mTSI valuesin all sampling stations with the phytoplankton quantitative results, it was possible to verifythat mTSI may overestimate the trophic state of lotic ecosystems, since the phosphorusspecies that integrate its calculus contributed to an improper augmentation on mTSI, whichwere incompatible with the real associated biological response. Thus, for April sampling,although mTSI values were higher, in general, phytoplankton density were lower (minimumof 83 indmL-1 for Canha River and of 66 indmL-1 for Pariquera-Açu River. In this case, thehigh total phosphorous concentrations by themselves were not enough to promoteproportional phytoplanktonic growth, which was probably limited by other factors, like watertemperature, suspended solids concentration, river discharge and zooplanktonic predation. InJanuary, on the other hand, mTSI values were lower, but total phytoplankton density washigher. For this sampling, the lower orthophosphate concentrations in water pointedphytoplankton assimilation of this nutrient.

    Full Text Available Severe land degradation has strongly affected both people’s livelihood and the environment in Cape Verde (Cabo Verde in Portuguese, a natural resource poor country. Despite the enormous investment in soil and water conservation measures (SWC or SLM, which are visible throughout the landscape, and the recognition of their benefits, their biophysical and socioeconomic impacts have been poorly assessed and scientifically documented. This paper contributes to filling this gap, by bringing together insights from literature and policy review, field survey and participatory assessment in the Ribeira Seca Watershed through a concerted approach devised by the DESIRE project (the “Desire approach”. Specifically, we analyze government strategies towards building resilience against the harsh conditions, analyze the state of land degradation and its drivers, survey and map the existing SWC measures, and assess their effectiveness against land degradation, on crop yield and people’s livelihood. We infer that the relative success of Cape Verde in tackling desertification and rural poverty owes to an integrated governance strategy that comprises raising awareness, institutional framework development, financial resource allocation, capacity building, and active participation of rural communities. We recommend that specific, scientific-based monitoring and assessment studies be carried out on the biophysical and socioeconomic impact of SLM and that the “Desire approach” be scaled-up to other watersheds in the country.

  15. Use of Pb and Sr isotopes on the determination of lead mineralization sources from Ribeira valley - Sao Paulo and Parana states

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A lead and strontium isotope study was carried out on galena, barite and calcite from Pb-Ag syngenetic stratiform (Perau type) and hydrothermal veins (Panela type) deposits from Vale do Ribeira region (Sao Paulo and Parana states). The leads from the Perau and Panelas type deposits have respectively isotope ratios (sup(206)Pb/ sup(204)Pb 16.157 to 16.505 amd 16.520 to 17.273; sup(207)Pb/ sup(204)Pb = 15.466 to 15.720 and 15.470 to 15.780 and sup(208)Pb/ sup(204)Pb = 36.370 to 36.763 and 37.043 to 38.243), that defined a Stacey and Kramers model ages mainly concentrate within 1.7-1.5Ga. A review of published Pb isotopic compositions for these deposits and considerations of new Sr isotope data and Pb results using plumbotectonics model, indicate that the Perau type mineralizations are related to the syngenetic process and the Pb are derived from upper crust with a short crustal residence time. For the Panelas type deposits the Pb and Sr isotope studies support the conclusion that the ores were emplaced during regional metamorphism and the Pb were derived from lithologically complex source which may include metasedimentary and basement rocks.

    Tavares, J.

    2012-04-01

    The aim of this study is to present the assessment and mapping of the environmental areas sensitive to desertification in an insular sahelian mountain region, in the catchment area of Ribeira Seca, island of Santiago, Cape Verde. Desertification is a threat for the global environment and it represents a serious ecological problem in Cape Verde. To fight both successfully, it requires an evaluation of its consequences and the building of cartography of the sensitivity for arid and semi-arid ecosystems. The model MEDALUS was the basis for this study with the use of six indicators of quality: climate, soil, vegetation, management, water runoff and social. Several sub-indicators were assigned to each indicator with weights variable between 1 (low) and 2 (high) according to the DESIRE Project (WB2). The geometric mean of each of the six indicators of quality was employed to produce the map of environmental sensitivity areas to desertification. The results of this study show that more than 50% of the watershed present obvious evidence of becoming a desertification area. Key words: Cape Verde, desertification, indicators, MEDALUS model, DESIRE project.

    Full Text Available Introduction The aim of this study was to identify the blood feeding sources of Nyssomyia intermedia (Ny. intermedia and Nyssomyia neivai (Ny. neivai, which are Leishmania vectors and the predominant sandfly species in the Ribeira Valley, State of São Paulo, Brazil, an endemic area for cutaneous leishmaniasis. Methods Specimens were captured monthly between February 2001 and December 2003 on a smallholding and a small farm situated in the Serra district in the Iporanga municipality. The blood meals of 988 engorged females were tested using the avidin-biotin immunoenzymatic enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA. Seven blood meal sources were investigated: human, dog, chicken, bovine, pig, horse and rat. Results The results showed that among the females that fed on one or more blood sources, the respective percentages for Ny. intermedia and Ny. neivai, respectively, were as follows: human (23% and 36.8%, pig (47.4% and 26.4%, chicken (25.7% and 36.8% and dog (3.9% and 0%, and the differences in the blood sources between the two species were statistically significant (p = 0.043. Conclusions Both species had predominant reactivity for one or two blood sources, and few showed reactivity indicating three or four sources. Many different combinations were observed among the females that showed reactivity for more than one source, which indicated their opportunistic habits and eclecticism regarding anthropic environmental conditions.

  18. Sr and Nd isotopic signature of the high-K calc-alkaline magmatism of the central Ribeira belt: the Sao Pedro Granite in Lumiar, RJ

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the central-northern Ribeira belt there are many granitic to granodioritic bodies showing varied shape and size, characterizing a late- to post-collisional Ca-alkaline, cordilleran I-type province. The Sao Pedro Granite occurs in the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro State as small post-collisional bodies. It presents isotropic fabric, equigranular to seriate inequigranular texture, as well as local concentration of allanite, which gives discrete composition and texture variation to the rock. The granite has a high-K calcalkaline to alkali-calcic character and weakly peraluminous nature. Despite its short geochemical variation, high Ba, Zr and Th contents besides low concentrations of MgO and CaO are noticeable. High REE contents are associated with fractionated REE patterns showing strong negative Eu anomalies. A crustal origin for the granite can be assumed by its very negative and positive .Nd and .Sr values, respectively, as well as by 87Sr/86Sr initial ratios ranging from 0,718 to 0,740. TDM ages point to paleoproterozoic source, which agrees with geological time of intensive crust generation. (author)

  19. 40Ar/39Ar ages (600-570 Ma of the Serra do Azeite transtensional shear zone: evidence for syncontractional extension in the Cajati area, southern Ribeira belt

    Full Text Available This paper presents 40Ar/39Ar ages of the rocks from the Serra do Azeite transtensional shear zone in the southern part of the Ribeira belt, between the States of São Paulo and Paraná, and also discusses the regional correlations and the tectonic implications for other parts of the belt. The geochronological data suggest that transtensional deformation was active between 600 and 580 Ma (hornblende and muscovite apparent ages, respectively. This time span is considerably older than previous proposals for the period of activity of these structures (520-480 Ma in the northern segment of this belt and in the Araçuaí belt. Kinematic analysis of the dated mylonites shows extensional structures with top-down movement to ESE compatible with structures found in other tectonic segments in the eastern portion of the Quadrilátero Ferrífero and in the Rio Doce Valley region. Our ages are situated in the same time interval defined for the alkaline magmatism of the Serra do Mar suite. We suggest that the regional tectonic framework was developed during continental-scale extension. This process has been coeval with convergent strain in the adjacent Neoproterozoic shear zones of the Apiaí/Ribeira and Araçuaí belts, which make up significant segments of these belts. The available data show that these structures may not be simply related to post-orogenic gravitational collapse, but must involve a more complex process probably related to dynamic balance between crustal thickening and thinning during tectonic convergence, basin formation and exhumation processes.Este trabalho apresenta idades 40Ar/39Ar de rochas da Zona de Cisalhamento Transtrativa Sinistral da Serra do Azeite, situada na parte sul do cinturão Ribeira, entre os Estados de São Paulo e Paraná, bem como discute a correlação regional e as implicações tectônicas com outras partes do cinturão. Os dados geocronológicos sugerem que a deformação extensional foi ativa entre 600 e 580 Ma

  20. The tectono-magmatic evolution of the occidental terrane and the Paraiba do Sul Klippe within the Neoproterozoic Ribeira orogenic Belt, Southeastern Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The occidental Terrane is envisaged as the eastern/southeastern reworked margin of the Sao Francisco/Rio de la Plata plate associated with and E-trending subduction under the Congo plate. The Paraiba do Sul Klippe is part of the Oriental Terrane, envisaged as a portion of the Congo plate. A collisional-stage resulted in intense westward deformation of the Occidental Terrane under intermediate pressure metamorphism (syn-D1+D2 events). A late-collisional stage resulted in subvertical folding and steep shear zones (D3 event). Both stages were associated with voluminous crustal-derived granites. U-Pb and Sm-Nd geochronology as well as geochemical and structural data point to three magmatic episodes: a syn-collisional stage 1; a syn-collisional stage 2; and a late-collisional stage. This paper presents a magmatic evolutionary model for this crustal segment of the Ribeira orogenic belt based on new geological data of Brasiliano granites and data available in the literature.

  1. Evidence of mingling between contrasting magmas in a deep plutonic environment: the example of Varzea Alegre, in the Ribeira Mobile Belt, Espirito Santo, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    At the end the geotectonic cycle that shaped the northern segment of the Ribeira Mobile Belt (Upper Proterozoic to Paleozoic age), a late to post-collisional set of plutonic complexes, consisting of a wide range of lithotypes, intruded all metamorphic units. The Varzea Alegre intrusive Complex is a post-collisional complex. The younger intrusion consists of an inversely zoned multistage structure envolved by a large early emplaced ring of megaporphyritic charnoenderbitic rocks. The combination if field, petrographic and geochemical data reveals the presence of at least two different series of igneous rocks. The first originated from the partial melting of the mantle. this was previously enriched in incompatible elements, low and intermediate REE and some HFS-elements. A second enrichment in LREE and incompatible elements in this series was due to the mingling with a crustal granitic magma. This mingling process changed the composition of the original tholeiitic magma towards a medium-K calc-alkalic magma to produce a suite of basic to intermediate rock types. The granitic magma from the second high-K, calc-alkalic suite originated from the partial melting of the continental crust, with strong influence of mantle-derived melts. (author)

    The Alto project means the installation of an electron linear accelerator inside the experimental area of the tandem accelerator of the nuclear physics institute of Orsay (IPNO, France). This linear accelerator comes from CERN where it was operating as a pre-injector for LEP. This equipment will allow IPNO'teams to perform fast kinetics studies in a domain different from that of ELYSE accelerator. The time resolution will not be as high as that of ELYSE (picosecond) but will be sufficient (microsecond) to produce free radicals in aqueous and gaseous media. The main expectations of this installation can be classified according 3 axis: 1) basic research (mainly the study of nuclear matter through photo-fission, 2) research and development of accelerators (by providing a test bench for new high frequency systems and superconducting components), and 3) applied research for industry concerning: biochemistry under irradiation, radiation sensibility, DNA breaking, food and drug sterilization and behaviour of electro...

  5. The Alto Paraguay Alkaline Province: petrographic, geochemical and geochronological characteristics

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Alto Paraguay Province is located at the border of the State of Mato Grosso do Sul and Paraguay, between the coordinates 21 deg 10'to 23 deg 25'of Southern latitude and 57 deg 10' to 58 deg 00', having the city of Porto Murtinho as the main reference point. The geotectonic domain of the area is governed by the precambric units of the Southern extreme of the Amazonic craton which developed a long and accentuated activity, giving rise to folds and important faults, that in several cases seem to have exerted an effective control of the magmatic manifestations. Radiometric data indicate that the emplacement of the syenitic bodies took place in the Permo-Triassic period, with a major incidence in the interval 260-240 Ma, representing thus, an important phase of alkaline magmatic affinity associated to the Parana Basin which is believed is to be unique, since the other known areas (Central, Amambay and Rio Apa Provinces, Paraguay, Velasco Province, Bolivia) are considerably younger (140-120 Ma). Syenitic rocks from the Alto Paraguay Province show wide variation in the ratio 87 Sr/86 Sr (0.703361 - 0.707734). Excluding the Cerro Boggiani rocks (0.703837-0.707734), values for the nepheline syenites (0.703361-0.703672) general lower than those of the other syenites types. Alkaline syenites cover the interval 0.703510- 0.703872, while quartz syenites and syenogranites are 0.704562 and 0.707076, respectively. geologic evidence, in addition to petrographic, geochemical and isotopic (Sr) data, suggest that the syenitic rocks have been derived from an unique mantelic parental liquid, by fractional crystallization and assimilation processes, which are assumed to be occurred during the emplacement of the magma in the crust.

    We present here CAFE, the Calar Alto Fiber-fed Échelle spectrograph, a new instrument built at the Centro Astronomico Hispano Alemán (CAHA). CAFE is a single-fiber, high-resolution (R ~ 70 000) spectrograph, covering the wavelength range between 3650-9800 Å. It was built on the basis of the common design for Échelle spectrographs. Its main aim is to measure radial velocities of stellar objects up to V ~ 13-14 mag with a precision as good as a few tens of m s-1. To achieve this goal the design was simplified at maximum, removing all possible movable components, the central wavelength is fixed, as is the wavelength coverage; there is no filter wheel, etc. Particular care was taken with the thermal and mechanical stability. The instrument is fully operational and publically accessible at the 2.2 m telescope of the Calar Alto Observatory. In this article we describe (i) the design, summarizing its manufacturing phase; (ii) characterize the main properties of the instrument; (iii) describe the reduction pipeline; and (iv) show the results from the first light and commissioning runs. The preliminar results indicate that the instrument fulfills the specifications and can achieve the planned goals. In particular, the results show that the instrument is more efficient than anticipated, reaching a signal-to-noise of ~20 for a stellar object as faint as V ~ 14.5 mag in ~2700 s integration time. The instrument is a wonderful machine for exoplanetary research (by studying large samples of possible systems cotaining massive planets), galactic dynamics (highly precise radial velocities in moving groups or stellar associations), or astrochemistry.

    Full Text Available The availability of multidisciplinary and high-resolution data is a fundamental requirement to understand the physics of earthquakes and faulting. We present the Alto Tiberina Near Fault Observatory (TABOO, a research infrastructure devoted to studying preparatory processes, slow and fast deformation along a fault system located in the upper Tiber Valley (northern Apennines, dominated by a 60 km long low-angle normal fault (Alto Tiberina, ATF active since the Quaternary. TABOO consists of 50 permanent seismic stations covering an area of 120 × 120 km2. The surface seismic stations are equipped with 3-components seismometers, one third of them hosting accelerometers. We instrumented three shallow (250 m boreholes with seismometers, creating a 3-dimensional antenna for studying micro-earthquakes sources (detection threshold is ML 0.5 and detecting transient signals. 24 of these sites are equipped with continuous geodetic GPS, forming two transects across the fault system. Geochemical and electromagnetic stations have been also deployed in the study area. In 36 months TABOO recorded 19,422 events with ML ≤ 3.8 corresponding to 23.36e-04 events per day per squared kilometres; one of the highest seismicity rate value observed in Italy. Seismicity distribution images the geometry of the ATF and its antithetic/synthetic structures located in the hanging-wall. TABOO can allow us to understand the seismogenic potential of the ATF and therefore contribute to the seismic hazard assessment of the area. The collected information on the geometry and deformation style of the fault will be used to elaborate ground shaking scenarios adopting diverse slip distributions and rupture directivity models.

Excluding the Cerro Boggiani rocks (0.703837-0.707734), values for the nepheline syenites (0.703361-0.703672) general lower than those of the other syenites types. Alkaline syenites cover the interval 0.703510- 0.703872, while quartz syenites and syenogranites are 0.704562 and 0.707076, respectively. geologic evidence, in addition to petrographic, geochemical and isotopic (Sr) data, suggest that the syenitic rocks have been derived from an unique mantelic parental liquid, by fractional crystallization and assimilation processes, which are assumed to be occurred during the emplacement of the magma in the crust.

  10. New Sm/Nd and U/Pb geochronological constraints of the Archean to neoproterozoic evolution of the Amparo basement complex of the Central Ribeira Belt, Southeastern Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Amparo Basement Complex is a distinctive collage of migmatitic tronjhemitetonalite- granodiorite (TTG) orthogneisses that represents the older basement exposures within the Central Ribeira Belt, a Late Neoproterozoic (ca. 600 Ma) collisional belt in southeastern Brazil. These basement gneisses are overlain by Mesoproterozoic to Neoproterozoic supracrustal sequences, and intruded by Neoproterozoic collisional granitoids. Pioneering Rb/Sr, Pb/Pb and K/Ar geochronological studies of the Amparo Complex, e.g. (Wernick et al., 1981; Wernick and Oliveira, 1986; Arthur, 1988; Tassinari, 1988; Campos Neto, 1991) provided some initial insights into the antiquity and geologic evolution of the complex, but little about the crustal evolution of the constituent gneisses. Furthermore, the susceptibility of these systems to partial isotopic resetting, left some doubt about the timing and true number of geologic events recorded by these polydeformed rocks. Recent Sm/Nd whole rock (Dantas et al., 2000) and new U/Pb single crystal zircon and monazite data obtained from the Amparo Complex, however, now furnish information on the crustal growth history of the basement and provide precise age constraints on the timing of events related to the geologic evolution of the complex. Based on these new data, it appears that the oldest rocks within the complex are polymigmatized tronjhemitic gneisses located near the town of Amparo. The oldest phase of this migmatite yields a U/Pb zircon age of 3,024 +/- 9 Ma. Sm/Nd data from this locale yields a Nd T(DM) model age of 3.28 Ga suggesting that the genesis of this crustal unit involved some input from yet older crust. Data from banded tonalitic gneisses collected ca. 50 km south of Amparo indicate that subsequent Archean crustal growth around the older core occurred around 2.77 Ga (U/Pb zircon age of 2,772 +/- 26 Ma. A Nd T(DM) model age of 3.02 Ga obtained from these tonalites also indicate enrichment from older crustal sources during their

    Full Text Available Abstract Aim: Current study assessed the influence of hydrometric levels on the limnological characteristics of two river floodplain systems in the Ribeira do Iguape Basin (state of São Paulo, Brazil. Methods: Rainfall data were collected dailyfrom an automatic weather station in Jacupiranga SP Brazil and daily hydrometric level records were obtained from automatic linigraphs installed on the two adjacent rivers. Moreover, pH, electrical conductivity and dissolved oxygen were measured by a multiparametric probe. Water samples were collected to analyze nitrate, ammoniac nitrogen, total nitrogen and phosphorus, total alkalinity and suspended material. The samplings were carried out in April and July, representative months for low and high water periods, respectively. Results and Conclusions: Statistical analysis highlighted the “effect of homogenization”, attributed to the hydrological pulses in several studies carried out in river-floodplain systems. This effect in current study was more underscored at Lagoon 2, which remained connected for a longer period with the adjacent river, when compared to Lagoon 1- River Jacupiranguinha system. Higher dissolved oxygen concentrations at Lagoon 2, in contrast with the Lagoon 1 featuring anoxia during the whole period under analysis, were also attributed to the above-mentioned greater hydrological connectivity. Current study highlights that the water-mediated transferences during the high water period may contribute not only towards the fertilization of marginal lagoons (inputs of nutrients and organic matter but also to significant pollutant loads, according to land use along the watersheds. In the case of Lagoon 1- River Jacupiranguinha system, even though further studies are needed and strongly recommended, it is reasonable to assume that the discharges of mining effluents into the river may result in ecological damage not only to the receiving water body but also to the connected ecosystems.

  12. Geologic evolution of the Paraiba do Sul complex, in the central part of the Ribeira belt, based on the geochemistry and U-Pb geochronology studies

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Aiming the definition of the Complexo Paraiba do Sul evolution, the work presents a geochronological approach by the U-Pb method, considered appropriate to study polideformed terrains. The minerals used to the U-Pb dating (zircon, titanite and monazite) provides information about the ages of rock generation and the successive geological events the rocks were submitted. The U-Pb geochronological approach is pioneer in the investigated area and two questions referent to the Complexo Paraiba do Sul evolution in the central part of the Ribeira belt, were the aim of this approach. The first of them refers to the crystallization epoch and the gneisses metamorphism, interpreted here like orthogneisses, called Unidade Quirino of the Complexo Paraiba do Sul. The second refers to the metamorphism ages and meta sedimentary unit deformation. Looking for the contribution to the Complexo Paraiba do Sul evolution understanding, this work presents the data based on the geologic map of this area, comprising part of the Folha Volta Redonda (1:50.000), including petrographic, structural and microtectonic studies. It also presents and discusses the results of: 17 U-Pb analysis in zircon and titanite of the Complexo Paraiba do Sul orthogneisses collection; 24 geochemical analysis of major, minor, trace elements and ETR of the same collection; an U-Pb analysis in titanite of the Unidade Sao Joao, 5 U-Pb analysis in titanites and/or monazites of granites and granitoids; 12 geochemical analysis including major, minor and trace elements and ETR, in granites and sills of leucogranites. Finally, the data achieved were integrated with the objective to elaborate an evolutive view of the Complexo Paraiba do Sul

  13. Technical and scientific report of the Alto project

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Alto project means the installation of an electron linear accelerator inside the experimental area of the tandem accelerator of the nuclear physics institute of Orsay (IPNO, France). This linear accelerator comes from CERN where it was operating as a pre-injector for LEP. This equipment will allow IPNO'teams to perform fast kinetics studies in a domain different from that of ELYSE accelerator. The time resolution will not be as high as that of ELYSE (picosecond) but will be sufficient (microsecond) to produce free radicals in aqueous and gaseous media. The main expectations of this installation can be classified according 3 axis: 1) basic research (mainly the study of nuclear matter through photo-fission, 2) research and development of accelerators (by providing a test bench for new high frequency systems and superconducting components), and 3) applied research for industry concerning: biochemistry under irradiation, radiation sensibility, DNA breaking, food and drug sterilization and behaviour of electronic components under irradiation. This rapport details the research program that could be achieved with this equipment, describes its contributions in terms of economic development, cooperation with industry, student training, and specifies the needed investment and the operating and maintenance costs.

  14. Production of exotic nuclei by photofission. ALTO Project: First results

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This PhD thesis has been carried out in the framework of ALTO Project (Accelerateur Lineaire Aupres du Tandem d'Orsay). a project exploiting photofission mode of neutron-rich nuclei for ISOL facilities. Our work deals with adaptation modes of the production environment represented by the target-ion source unit. We undertook an exhaustive radioprotection study in order to design and define the kinds of shielding necessary to face intense flux of photons and neutrons generated in the production target. Monte Carlo simulation with FLUKA code allowed to calculate the simultaneous transport of photons and neutrons with an entire modelling of very complicated geometrical structures. For the target-source unit and the critical points of beam loss, we propose an optimized shielding based mainly on the segmented structure. We have studied the adequacy of a thick carbide uranium target to produce neutron-rich nuclei by photofission. In particular, comparing the results of simulation with the experimental data, we have benchmarked FLUKA code for photofission with a 50 MeV electron beam. Finally, we present our works on the design and development of a FEBIAD-type-ion-source prototype: IRENA ion source, designed for next generation facilities. This work shows how important radioprotection considerations are also involved in the design of the ion source. (author)

    PANIC is a wide-field NIR camera, which is currently under development for the Calar Alto observatory (CAHA) in Spain. It uses a mosaic of four Hawaii-2RG detectors and covers the spectral range from 0.8-2.5 micron(z to K-band). The field-of-view is 30x30 arcmin. This instrument can be used at the 2.2m telescope (0.45arcsec/pixel, 0.5x0.5 degree FOV) and at the 3.5m telescope (0.23arcsec/pixel, 0.25x0.25 degree FOV). The operating temperature is about 77K, achieved by liquid Nitrogen cooling. The cryogenic optics has three flat folding mirrors with diameters up to 282 mm and nine lenses with diameters between 130 mm and 255 mm. A compact filter unit can carry up to 19 filters distributed over four filter wheels. Narrow band (1%) filters can be used. The instrument has a diameter of 1.1 m and it is about 1 m long. The weight limit of 400 kg at the 2.2m telescope requires a light-weight cryostat design. The aluminium vacuum vessel and radiation shield have wall thicknesses of only 6 mm and 3 mm respectively.

    The Baryon Acoustic Oscillation (BAO) feature in the power spectrum of galaxies provides a standard ruler to measure the accelerated expansion of the Universe. To extract all available information about dark energy, it is necessary to measure a standard ruler in the local, z < 0.2, universe where dark energy dominates most the energy density of the Universe. Though the volume available in the local universe is limited, it is just big enough to measure accurately the long 100 h-1 Mpc wave-mode of the BAO. Using cosmological N-body simulations and approximate methods based on Lagrangian perturbation theory, we construct a suite of a thousand light-cones to evaluate the precision at which one can measure the BAO standard ruler in the local universe. We find that using the most massive galaxies on the full sky (34 000 deg2), i.e. a K2MASS < 14 magnitude-limited sample, one can measure the BAO scale up to a precision of 4 per cent (˜1.2 per cent using reconstruction). We also find that such a survey would help to detect the dynamics of dark energy. Therefore, we propose a 3-year long observational project, named the Low Redshift survey at Calar Alto, to observe spectroscopically about 200 000 galaxies in the northern sky to contribute to the construction of aforementioned galaxy sample. The suite of light-cones is made available to the public.

    This paper deals with metallogenic aspects concerning the huge Alto Ligonha pegmatite Province. The geological setting of the pegmatites is briefly reviewed and the metamorphic grade of the country rocks of the pegmatites, ranging from granulitic to greenschist facies, has been considered. The economically most interesting pegmatites are those emplaced within rocks with lighter metamorphism. The available geochronological data allow us to link, the most interesting pegmatites from Alto Ligonha, to the Pan-African granitoid magmatism, about 500 Ma ago. (author)

    Full Text Available Actualmente la pesquería del camarón en el Alto Golfo de California genera preocupaciones referentes a su impacto sobre el medio ambiente, su viabilidad biológica y rentabilidad. Con el propósito de entender el manejo de esta pesquería y su productividad física, hemos examinado el comportamiento productivo de los barcos camaroneros de San Felipe, B.C. durante el periodo 1990-1993. Para ello usamos una función de producción frontera, flexible y no restringida, respecto a la cual estimamos la eficiencia técnica de cada una de las naves observadas. Nuestros resultados indican que la eficiencia promedio de la flota observada es del 80%, un valor de eficiencia cercano al mejor uso de la tecnología productiva y de los factores de la producción. Las naves más viejas resultaron menos eficientes, un resultado esperado; sin embargo, el tamaño de la cooperativa y calidad de su administración afectó positivamente los valores de eficiencia de las naves asociadas enmascarando con ello el efecto antes mencionado y favoreciendo el desarrollo de economías de escala. Los resultados indican también que el conocimiento acumulativo sobre la pesquería del camarón entre los productores es una variable importante, en términos de su efecto sobre la eficiencia productiva de las naves, mientras que la innovación tecnológica ha sido escasa, excepto por los excluidores de tortugas incorporados a su tecnología de captura durante 1996. Concluimos de nuestro análisis que la divulgación del conocimiento sobre la pesquería, como una variable social de cambio desincorporada a la función de producción, y el fortalecimiento de la calidad de los servicios administrativos, son dos aspectos fundamentales a promover para el desarrollo de esta pesquería. También argumentamos que la semejanza tecnológica y operativa entre ambas flotas, la de San Felipe, B.C. y el resto de la flota del camarón que pesca en el Golfo de California permite que nuestro an

    Full Text Available A região do Vale do Ribeira, situada no sul do Estado de São Paulo, detém 20% dos remanescentes florestais de Mata Atlântica do Brasil e apresenta os menores índices de desenvolvimento humano do estado de maior densidade técnico-científico-informacional e de capital do país. A atual configuração socioespacial dessa região é produto de um processo histórico marcado pela ação e inação do Estado, o qual desempenha seu papel na produção do espaço de forma diferenciada conforme o movimento da história. Ao analisar as políticas públicas de desenvolvimento regional direcionadas ao Vale, dos anos 60 até o início dos anos 80, nota-se a forma centralizada e ineficiente da ação do Estado, sem o envolvimento da sociedade civil no processo de produção de suas políticas, período que denominamos de “presença ausente do Estado no Vale do Ribeira”. A partir da década de 80, um conjunto de fatores leva a região a se deparar com novos problemas e desafios. A redemocratização política, o avanço do neoliberalismo, a crescente preocupação com as chamadas questões ambientais, o aumento do número de organizações do terceiro setor e a descentralização da produção de políticas públicas desencadeiam uma nova forma de o Estado desempenhar seu papel na produção do espaço. Neste contexto, é nítida a mudança de foco das ações estatais direcionadas ao Vale do Ribeira, influenciada, sobretudo, pelas ONGs ambientalistas, que passam a atuar ativamente na arena política. A partir de então, inicia-se o discurso, pronunciado pelos órgãos públicos e ONGs, de que o ecoturismo é uma alternativa para o Vale, capaz de conciliar conservação ambiental e desenvolvimento social. Entretanto, o Estado passa a delegar às organizações do terceiro setor a incumbência de planejar o desenvolvimento regional do Vale do Ribeira, tornando-se o ente financiador dos projetos.

    Full Text Available To observe the effects of the parasitic infection on the biology of B. tenagophila, field and laboratory populations of this mollusk from Itariri, in Vale do Ribeira, Brazil, were experimentally infected. Each mollusk received 10 miracidia of Schistosoma mansoni (SJ lineage and was observed throughout the parasite's development. The biological variables were compared according to the criteria "group" and "infectious phase". The main damage caused by the parasitic infection manifested itself in reproduction, longevity and lesions on the shell of the mollusks in the patent phase. An infection rate of 58.8% was observed. Microanatomical study of the mollusk's digestive gland and ovotestis revealed the presence of evolving larval forms and cercariae. It was concluded that the effects of the parasitic infection on both populations were moderate, despite the low survival rate of the infected mollusks, the damage did not prevent either reproduction or the elimination of cercariae, which continued for a long time.Com objetivo de observar os efeitos da infecção parasitária na biologia de B. tenagophila, foram realizadas infecções experimentais em populações de campo e laboratório, ambas procedentes de Itariri, Vale do Ribeira, Brasil.

    The study of nuclei far from stability is constitutive of the history of nuclear physics at its very beginning and has been making considerable great strides since then. The study of these nuclei give the opportunity to reach new information on the nuclear structure and thus to measure the solidity of our knowledge on nuclear matter and its validity when it is pushed to its limits. The reaction selected for the production of exotic nuclei in the framework of the PARRNe program is the fission of uranium 238. The nuclei produced have an intermediate mass and are very rich in neutrons. The technique to recover them in order to accelerate them is the thick target method called also the Isol technique. The installation of the ancient Lep injector at the Tandem line in Orsay (IPN) is expected to increase by a factor 100 the production rate of exotic nuclei in the PARRNe program, it is the Alto project. The work presented here concerns studies carried out at the Lohengrin spectrometer installed at the ILL in Grenoble, and at the Tandem installation in Orsay. This document is divided into 4 parts: 1) in flight techniques at Lohengrin, 2) the Isol technique, 3) magic numbers in the domain N=50, and 4) the Alto project.

    The aim of this work was to assess the sporulation and diversity of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) at different forest sites with Araucaria angustifolia (Bert.) O. Ktze. (Brazil Pine). In addition, a greenhouse experiment was carried out to test the use of traditional trap plants (maize + peanut) or A. angustifolia to estimate the diversity of AMF at each site. Soil samples were taken in two State Parks at southwestern Brazil: Campos do Jordão (Parque Estadual de Campos do Jordão [PECJ]) and Apiaí (Parque Estadual Turístico do Alto Ribeira [PETAR]), São Paulo State, in sites of either native or replanted forest. In PECJ, an extra site of replanted forest that was impacted by accidental fire and is now in a state of recuperation was also sampled. The spore densities and their morphological identification were compiled at each site. In the greenhouse, soil samples from each site were used as inoculum to promote spore multiplication on maize + peanut or A. angustifolia grown on a sandy, low-fertility substrate. Plants were harvested, respectively, after 4 months or 1 year of growth and assessed for mycorrhizal root colonization. Spore counts and identification were also performed in the substrate, after the harvest of plants. Twenty-five taxa were identified considering all sites. Species richness and diversity were greater in native forest areas, being Acaulospora, the genus with the most species. Differences in number of spores, diversity, and richness were found at the different sites of each State Park. Differences were also found when maize + peanut or A. angustifolia were used as trap plants. The traditional methodology using trap plants seems to underestimate the diversity of the AMF. The use of A. angustifolia as trap plant showed similar species richness to the field in PECJ, but the identified species were not necessarily the same. Nevertheless, for PETAR, both A. angustifolia and maize + peanut underestimated the species richness. Because the AMF

MÉTODOS: Estudio observacional descriptivo con los datos obtenidos de la inspección sanitaria en 44 comedores colectivos de alto riesgo, que incluyó el análisis microbiológico de 90 alimentos, así como la inspección sanitaria de los establecimientos. RESULTADOS: En los colegios los microorganismos mesófilos fueron los contaminantes más frecuentes; en las guarderías y residencias de ancianos predominaron los indicadores de higiene deficiente en la manipulación de alimentos. Los microorganismos mesófilos se encontraron durante los meses fríos en mayor proporción que durante los meses cálidos. Los indicadores de higiene deficiente aparecieron generalmente en los alimentos preparados en establecimientos en los que se observaron deficiencias. Los microorganismos psicrótrofos no se encontraron en ninguno de los alimentos recogidos en guarderías y sí en colegios y residencias de ancianos. CONCLUSIONES: Este estudio indica qué problemas predominan en cada tipo de comedor colectivo de alto riesgo. Los mesófilos aparecen en los alimentos elaborados en cocinas de tamaño grande, los indicadores de higiene deficiente se encontraron asociados a una manipulación de alimentos por personal no profesional y a establecimientos con deficiencias, y los psicrótrofos se detectaron en aquellos establecimientos que guardan la comida sobrante.

    Full Text Available After a brief review of the coking technology at the beginning of the new millennium, blast furnace coke quality criteria of most of EU countries, presented by the European Blast Furnace Committee in the 4th European Coke and Ironmaking Congress, are compared with those used by the Spanish Steel Industry at Aceralia. Blast furnace coke quality is very high in EU's countries in order to meet the requirements of bigger blast furnaces commissioned in the last years. CSR index is the most important parameter in the control of coke quality in Europe.

    En el presente trabajo se ha llevado a cabo una breve revisión de las tecnologías de coquización existentes al comienzo del nuevo milenio. Los criterios de calidad del coque de Horno Alto de la mayoría de los países de la Unión Europea, recogidos por el European Blast Furnace Committee, y que fueron presentados en el 4th European Coke and Ironmaking Congress en París durante el año 2000, se comparan con los utilizados por la industria siderúrgica española Aceralia. Como consecuencia del sensible aumento experimentado en el tamaño de los modernos Hornos Altos durante los últimos años, se ha podido comprobar que, en la UE, los valores de los diversos parámetros de control de calidad del coque son bastante similares y con unos requerimientos muy elevados. Asimismo, en la UE el parámetro CSR se ha convertido en el más importante para el control de la calidad del coque de Horno Alto.

  11. Rb-Sr measurements on metamorphic rocks from the Barro Alto Complex, Goias, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Barro Alto Complex comprises a highly deformed and metamorphosed association of plutonic, volcanic, and sedimentary rocks exposed in a 150 x 25 Km boomerang-like strip in Central Goias, Brazil. It is the southernmost tip of an extensive yet discontinuous belt of granulite and amphibolite facies metamorphic rocks which include the Niquelandia and Cana Brava complexes to the north. Two rock associations are distinguished within the granulite belt. The first one comprises a sequence of fine-grained mafic granulite, hypersthene-quartz-feldspar granulite, garnet quartzite, sillimanite-garnet-cordierite gneiss, calc-silicate rock, and magnetite-rich iron formation. The second association comprises medium-to coarse-grained mafic rocks. The medium-grade rocks of the western/northern portion (Barro Alto Complex) comprise both layered mafic rocks and a volcanic-sedimentary sequence, deformed and metamorphosed under amphibolite facies conditions. The fine-grained amphibolite form the basal part of the Juscelandia meta volcanic-sedimentary sequence. A geochronologic investigation by the Rb-Sr method has been carried out mainly on felsic rocks from the granulite belt and gneisses of the Juscelandia sequence. The analytical results for the Juscelandia sequence are presented. Isotope results for rocks from different outcrops along the gneiss layer near Juscelandia are also presented. In conclusion, Rb-Sr isotope measurements suggest that the Barro Alto rocks have undergone at least one important metamorphic event during Middle Proterozoic times, around 1300 Ma ago. During that event volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Juscelandia sequence, as well as the underlying gabbro-anorthosite layered complex, underwent deformation and recrystallization under amphibolite facies conditions.

    Full Text Available ResumoThe sediment is an integrator site of many processes that take place in the water column. Its study is extremely important for the assessment of environmental impacts to which aquatic ecosystems are subordinated, since the sediments are able to accumulate nutrients and pollutants. The aim of this research was to compare copper, lead, manganese and mercury concentrations in the sediments of Jacupiranguinha River and of a natural wetland, observing the spatial-temporal variation of these concentrations in two sampling periods: October, 2004 and January, 2005. The study area is located in one of the most miserable regions in Brazil, Ribeira do Iguape Basin, whose economy is based on banana cultivation and mining activities. The obtained results contributed to better understand the differences in contaminants´ dynamic for lotic and lentic biological systems. Copper, lead and manganese concentrations were higher in the natural wetland sediment when compared to the river, probably due to the variability of processes in one and other ecosystem. It was possible to observe temporal variation, since the highest concentrations of these three metals were obtained in the sampling during the rainy period. Mercury, however, presented a different behavior. The highest concentrations were obtained in Jacupiranguinha River, reaching 0.8 mg kg-1, painting a deep and serious public health problem. Besides, mercury concentrations during the rainy period were lower in comparison with the period with less intense precipitation, pointing the possibility of this metal’s transportation from Jacupiranguinha river to the other rivers located in the basin.

    Full Text Available Pretendemos analizar cómo son considerados los denominados chilenos que habitan el lado occidental de los Andes por los grupos denominados crianceros (pastores trashumantes que habitan una serie de localidades y parajes rurales del Alto Neuquén, patagonia argentina. Veremos que en el sistema clasificatorio y autoclasi- ficatorio de estos grupos opera el principio de los indiscernibles: las categorías adscriptivas se multiplican sin solución de continuidad. Se manifiesta así una superposición y continuidad de identidades más que oposiciones entre el argentino, el chileno, el mapuche, etc. Esto es lo que observamos cuando empezamos a analizar las categorías de adscripción en acto y no como modelo. Nos proponemos señalar cómo esta ambigüedad y superposición de identidades se hace también manifiesto en valoraciones ambiguas y superpuestas respecto a cómo los crianceros argentinos valoran moralmente a los crianceros chilenos. Para ello analizaré ciertas situaciones de intercambio que se caracterizan por ser poco claras, tales como el comercio, el robo y el contrabando de ganado que ocurre a ambos lados de la frontera internacional.This article examines how Chileans living in the Western Andes are thought of by the crianceros (transhumanance shepherds who live in the Alto Neuquén, (Argentinean Patagonian. It is observed that the principle of indiscernible operates in the classificatory and self-classificatory systems of these groups: the ascriptive categories cannot be discerned or distinguished from one another and multiply ad infinitum. A superposition and continuity of identities is manifested rather than an opposition between Argentineans, Chileans, Mapuche, and so on. These forms appear when ascriptive categories are analyzed in action rather than in models. It is shown that such ambiguity and superposition of identities is also made manifest in ambiguous and superposed moral judgments of Chilean shepherds by Argentinean

Esses cuidados eram oferecidos através de visitas domiciliares a todas crianças nessa faixa etária, residentes na área de abrangência do ACS. Ao longo de três anos, foram visitadas semanalmente, em média, 409 (396-417 crianças. Nesse período, a taxa de hospitalização entre menores de cinco anos foi drasticamente reduzida, e a utilização de soro reidratante oral e a cobertura vacinal básica sensivelmente aumentadas. A prevalência de déficit altura/idade e incidência de baixo peso ao nascer praticamente não se modificaram. Os indicadores de saúde infantil nesse município, foram sistematicamente melhores que os indicadores de um município tomado como controle. É bastante provável que os ACS tenham contribuído para essas melhorias. No entanto, há que considerar o fato de os indicadores de saúde infantil estarem melhorando no Brasil, e que este é um programa de pequena escala implementado em um área com elevados índices de morbimortalidade infantil e baixa oferta de cuidados em saúde.Twelve community health workers (CHWs were trained to offer basic health care for children under five years of age through household visits in Itapirapuã Paulista, a municipality in Vale do Ribeira, São Paulo State, Brazil.

    Full Text Available Solar radiation is a meteorological component of great importance to soil-plant-atmosphere processes, and the majority of weather stations do not register this component since they do not have the equipment for its quantification. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of models to estimate solar radiation for the annual, rainy and dry periods in Aquidauana “Alto Pantanal” region of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. This study was conducted using meteorological data obtained from January 2008 to December 201. The automatic meteorological station was located in Aquidauana, and belongs to the network of the Instituto Nacional de Meteorologia (INMET. The data collected included maximum and minimum temperatures, and solar radiation. The Annandale, Bristow-Campbell, Hargreaves-Samani and Weiss empirical models were evaluated, and all were compared with the solar radiation value measured by the meteorological station. In Aquidauana, the Alto Pantanal region of Mato Grosso do Sul, regardless of the time of year, the Bristow-Campbell model is recommended to estimate solar radiation.

    For over 25 years, personal assistant robots for severely disabled individuals have been in development. More recently, using robots to deliver rehabilitation therapy has been proposed. This paper summarizes the development and clinical testing of three mechatronic systems for post-stroke therapy conducted at the VA Palo Alto in collaboration with Stanford University. We describe the philosophy and experiences that guided their evolution. Unique to the Palo Alto approach is provision for bimanual, mirror-image, patient-controlled therapeutic exercise. Proof-of-concept was established with a 2-degree-of-freedom (DOF) elbow/forearm manipulator. Tests of a second-generation therapy robot producing planar forearm movements in 19 hemiplegic and control subjects confirmed the validity and reliability of interaction forces during mechanically assisted upper-limb movements. Clinical trials comparing 3-D robot-assisted therapy to traditional therapy in 21 chronic stroke subjects showed significant improvement in the Fugl-Meyer (FM) measure of motor recovery in the robot group, which exceeded improvements in the control group.

  12. Litho-structural and geophysics features of the Alto Paranaiba Uplift

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Alto Paranaiba Uplift (APU) is an almost elliptical tectonic feature of the Western Minas Gerais/Southern Goias region, which was active mostly during the Cretaceous. It separated the Parana Basin, during the formation of the Sao Bento, Uberaba and Bauru sequences, from the Alto-Sanfranciscana Basin, at the time of formation of the Areado, Patos, Capacete and Urucuia sequences. The Bouguer anomaly data indicate that the APU developed at the southwestern border of the ancient Brasilia crustal block and is represented by an almost elliptical gravity high of 15 mgal, locally disturbed by positive and negative the presence of important lineaments of a NW-SE set, mostly crossing the southwestern half of the APU. The APU development, the magmatism and the lateral basin formation involved reactivation of preexisting discontinuities and are related to a mantle plume. The tectonic development was aborted at the uplift stage during Cretaceous, after the deposition of the Bauru and Urucuia sequences, as is indicated by the Pratinha peneplane, now elevated at about 1.100 m altitude, which sculpture ended at the beginning of the Tertiary. The APU is one tectonic feature like other similar anomalies also aborted in the uplift stage or in the rift stage, which developed in Southern Brazil during the time of Atlantic Ocean opening.

Tal condición requiere de directivos que optimicen sus habilidades para liderar equipos, considerando unas características que antes parecían irrelevantes. El propósito de éste estudio es delimitar conceptualmente el liderazgo en relación con los equipos de alto desempeño y discutir entorno al rol que este debe tener en su conformación y mantenimiento. Se puntualiza sobre la necesidad de que el líder se convierta en un facilitador para la transformación no solo de las personas que componen los equipos, sino dela organización, a través de desarrollo y crecimiento. Se plantea la necesidad de incluir en los procesos de dirección exitosa de equipos de alto desempeño factores como la estrategia organizacional, la gestión humana y la estructura organizacional, todos ellos permeados necesariamente por los estilos de liderazgo y la actitud del líder hacia el cambio.

    Full Text Available The architectural restoration and functional redevelopment of Boccacio’s house in Certaldo Alto (Florence, has been carried out between 2006 and 2007 and finalized in 2011, including the reconstruction of the garden next to the house. The program which has been characterized by a strong civic, social and cultural involvement, is lead by the Ente Nazionale G. Boccaccio in partnership whit the local administration and aims at contributing to the valorization of the historical, architectural and cultural heritage of the historic center of Certaldo Alto. Valorization here is intended as a functional integration and synergy between predominantly cultural activities. The aim is to achieve the best results in terms of social development as well as intellectual growth within a virtuous economy, and therefore the construction of a complementary model for cultural assets in general. A model where the single cultural elements (museums, libraries, workrooms, exhibitions, auditorium, etc.. represent only the intersections of a wider net system established through the process of communication and exchange with the institutions, publics or privates, that operate in the sectors of research, experimentation, education and information. This means that the management of cultural assets will now aim mainly at the interaction between its components and nationals as well as international structures of education and research, institutes for the social and economical development and innovative business structures in the fields of communication and cultural and sustainable tourism. This establishes an additional value of his still underestimated significance.

Es por eso que el revisar el libro Alto Purús: Biodiversidad, Conservación y Manejo constituye un verdadero placer y satisfacción pues permite conocer sobre la naturaleza y las actividades humanas que se realizan en esa región. En primer lugar podemos resaltar que el trabajo de campo y la recopilación de información fueron realizadas por un equipo de 40 biólogos, geógrafos, conservacionistas y sociólogos, y que recorrieron la zona realizando trabajos puntuales, porque es un área tan extensa que sólo se podría cubrir por completo en varios años. Los editores de la obra califican a la región del Alto Purús como de importancia estratégica por su función de corredor ecológico, al conectar otras áreas protegidas del Perú, además de ser el hogar de grupos humanos poco conocidos y en contacto incipiente.

  16. Structure of neutron rich nuclei of Germanium and Gallium beyond N equals 50 at Alto

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The gamma rays following the beta decay of the following very neutron-rich isotopes: 82,83,84Ga produced by photo-fission, have been studied at the newly built ISOL facility in Orsay: ALTO. In ALTO the interaction of an electron beam with U238 target generates a continuous spectra of Bremsstrahlung gamma radiation that triggers U238 fission. The fission fragments are then ionized, extracted and mass-separated. The analysis of the data has shown the existence of an isomer in 3184Ga53 and has enabled us to confirm known results on 3283Ge51 energy levels including the gamma transition between the 1/2+ state at 247,7 KeV and the fundamental state. We have also proposed the first energy level scheme for 3384As51. In order to understand the structure of the nucleus we have used the Thankappan and True model that gives a description of the coupling between the pair-pair core (half-magical) and the single nucleon. This model applied to the N=51 chain (3889Sr51, 3687Kr51, 3485Se51, 3283Ge51 and 3081Zn51) has allowed us to see the main features of odd isotope structure. We have also confirmed previous results concerning the nature of the states in the following decay 3183Ga52 → 3283Ge51

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se busca caracterizar, desde un punto de vista geomorfológico y geológico, el deslizamiento de Palo Alto, en el contexto de los megaprocesos de inestabilidad de laderas presentes en las laderas del río Reventazón. El corredor del río Reventazón, entre Turrialba y Siquirres, muestra una serie de procesos complejos de remoción en masa, que generan morfologías típicas de procesos de deslizamiento, tan continuas que dan una apariencia morfológica caótica, donde es difícil definir patrones de movimiento del terreno. El área de inestabilidad de Palo Alto se reconoce fácilmente incluso en el mapa topográfico correspondiente a escala 1:50 000, pues muestra una típica forma en herradura. Los límites del deslizamiento están bien marcados mediante escarpes bien definidos en campo, pero los extremos de las coronas laterales hacia el oeste se desdibujan debido, entre otras cosas, a que en esos sectores queda indefinido el límite al norte con el área de inestabilidad compleja de Bonilla y al sur con el área similar de Guayabo - Lajas. Se efectuó una fotointerpretación del área de estudio, mediante la revisión de fotos aéreas de la línea de vuelo Orosi-Pejibaye, escala 1:20 000 del año 1988, así como fotografías aéreas del proyecto Terra 1998, con el fin de observar posibles cambios en los procesos erosivos, así como en la forma del deslizamiento. Posteriormente, se realizó trabajo de campo para revisar la morfología fotointerpretada, analizar la conformación geológica a nivel de litología y estructura y así afinar la interpretación final de la geomorfología del área inestable de Palo Alto. Desde un punto de vista geológico, el área de estudio está compuesta por rocas sedimentarias del Neógeno, tales como la Fm. Uscari (Mioceno y las formaciones Suretka y Fm.

    Full Text Available Environmental concerns have influenced the political projects of family farmers’ organizations. The present paper aims to examine how these concerns were assimilated by the Federação dos Trabalhadores na Agricultura Familiar da região Sul (FETRAF-Sul in the Alto Uruguai in Rio Grande do Sul, mainly in setting the agenda of agroecology. A review about the process of building this agenda in the trade unionism was based on the consultation of documents produced by trade unions and their press offices, newspapers and interviews with farmers’ leaders. We decided to do a study about the town of Constantina-RS, where experiments have been carried out since the 1980s to assess how environmental issues have been internalized by unions in different periods.

  12. Photo-fission for the production of radioactive beams ALTO project

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In order to probe neutron rich radioactive noble gases produced by photo-fission, a PARRNe-1 experiment (Production d'Atomes Radioactifs Riches en Neutrons) has been carried out at CERN. The incident electron beam of 50 MeV was delivered by the LIL machine: LEP Injector Linac. The experiment allowed us to compare under the same conditions two production methods of radioactive noble gases: fission induced by fast neutrons and photo-fission. The obtained results show that the use of the electrons is a promising mode to get intense neutron rich ion beams. After the success of this photo-fission experiment, a conceptual design for the installation at IPN Orsay of a 50 MeV electron accelerator close to the PARRNe-2 device has been worked out: ALTO Project. This work has started within a collaboration between IPNO, LAL (Laboratoire de l'Accelerateur Lineaire) and CERN groups

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Dermatological remedies make up at least one-third of the traditional pharmacopoeia in southern Italy. The identification of folk remedies for the skin is important both for the preservation of traditional medical knowledge and in the search for novel antimicrobial agents in the treatment of skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI. Our goal is to document traditional remedies from botanical, animal, mineral and industrial sources for the topical treatment of skin ailments. In addition to SSTI remedies for humans, we also discuss certain ethnoveterinary applications. Methods Field research was conducted in ten communities in the Vulture-Alto Bradano area of the Basilicata province, southern Italy. We randomly sampled 112 interviewees, stratified by age and gender. After obtaining prior informed consent, we collected data through semi-structured interviews, participant-observation, and small focus groups techniques. Voucher specimens of all cited botanic species were deposited at FTG and HLUC herbaria located in the US and Italy. Results We report the preparation and topical application of 116 remedies derived from 38 plant species. Remedies are used to treat laceration, burn wound, wart, inflammation, rash, dental abscess, furuncle, dermatitis, and other conditions. The pharmacopoeia also includes 49 animal remedies derived from sources such as pigs, slugs, and humans. Ethnoveterinary medicine, which incorporates both animal and plant derived remedies, is addressed. We also examine the recent decline in knowledge regarding the dermatological pharmacopoeia. Conclusion The traditional dermatological pharmacopoeia of Vulture-Alto Bradano is based on a dynamic folk medical construct of natural and spiritual illness and healing. Remedies are used to treat more than 45 skin and soft tissue conditions of both humans and animals. Of the total 165 remedies reported, 110 have never before been published in the mainland southern Italian

    Full Text Available The Demarcated Douro Region is one of the oldest demarcated wine regions, and the largest and the most heterogeneous mountainous wine region in the world. Viticulture covers 44,000 ha, and since 2001 an area covering 24,600 ha has been designated as the most representative territory of the Demarcated Douro Region, the Alto Douro Wine Region. This region is included in the list of World Heritage Sites as an evolving and living cultural landscape. The Demarcated Douro Region fits the terroir model, as its economy is based on wine (Porto wine and Douro still wines, supplemented by tourism. During recent decades, both activities have witnessed deep and structural changes, with consequences for the maintenance of the traditional characteristics of the cultural landscape that drove the UNESCO classification. With this issue in mind, the goal of this paper is to describe the recent evolution of the main economic activities of the Demarcated Douro Region. In particular, we aim to deepen the knowledge about the preferences of Portuguese visitors towards the Alto Douro Wine Region and its attributes, thus determining those that deserve preservation and, consequently, public attention. The results of a mixed logit model show that visitors assign highest utility to the preservation of vineyards supported by schist walls, followed by the agglomerations and the characteristic mosaic nature of the landscape. Additionally, respondents who are richer, employed, better educated, better informed regarding the culture of the site and more influenced by the listing are more willing to participate in preserving the cultural heritage of the region.

    Full Text Available A series of sinters are manufactured in the pilot plant, using a mineral mixture, like that blast furnace. The sinters are characterised, by chemical and granulometric analysis and by determining the softening and melting temperatures. In the blast furnace temperatures are determined by using a series of probes in the furnace which make it possible to locate the position of the isotherm of higher temperature of 950°C, which correspond to the reserve thermic zone. A model has been developed, proposing and indirect estimation of the shape of the cohesive zone through the determination of the isotherm with the highest temperature in the thermic reserve zone. The values of the softening and melting temperatures of sinters can be used to estimate the isotherms limiting the cohesive zone in the 1300-1400 °C range.

    En planta piloto se fabrica una serie de sinterizados a partir de mezclas minerales como las utilizadas en el horno alto. Se caracterizan los sinterizados mediante análisis químico y granulométrico y determinación de las temperaturas de reblandecimiento y fusión. En el horno alto, mediante una serie de sondas, se determinan las temperaturas en el horno, lo que permite situar la posición de la isoterma de mayor temperatura de 950 °C, que corresponde a la zona de reserva térmica. Se ha desarrollado un modelo que propone una estimación indirecta de la forma de la zona cohesiva a través de la determinación de la isoterma de mayor temperatura de la zona de reserva térmica. Los valores de las temperaturas de reblandecimiento y fusión de los sinterizados permiten estimar las isotermas que limitan la zona cohesiva, en el intervalo de 1.300-1.400 °C.

  20. Timing and sources of granite magmatism in the Ribeira Belt, SE Brazil: Insights from zircon in situ U–Pb dating and Hf isotope geochemistry in granites from the São Roque Domain

    Eight new in situ U-Pb zircon age determinations by SHRIMP and LA-MC-ICPMS reveal that the main granitic magmatism in the São Roque Domain, which is largely dominated by metaluminous high-K calc-alkaline monzogranites with subordinate peraluminous leucogranites, occurred between 604 ± 3 and 590 ± 4 Ma. This small temporal range is ca. 20-30 Ma younger than previously admitted based on U-Pb TIMS dates from literature, some of which obtained in the same occurrences now dated. The observed discrepancy seems related to the presence of small Paleoproterozoic inherited cores in part of the zircon populations used for TIMS multigrain dating, which could also respond for the unusually high (up to 10 Ma) uncertainty associated with most of these dates. The younger age range now identified for the São Roque granite magmatism has important implications for the evolution of the Ribeira Fold Belt. Whilst previously admitted ages ca. 620-630 Ma substantiated correlations with the widespread and intensely foliated high-K calc-alkaline granitoid rocks of the neighbor Socorro-Guaxupé Nappe (potentially associated with an accretionary continental margin), the ∼600-590 Ma interval seems more consistent with a late deformation tectonic setting. Strongly negative εHf(t) characterize the magmatic zircons from the São Roque Domain granites. An eastward increase from -22 in the São Roque Granite to -11 in the Cantareira Granite and neighboring stocks suggests an across-domain shift in granite sources. Such eastward younging of sources, also indicated by Sm-Nd isotope data from granites and supracrustal sequences in neighboring domains, is suggestive that some of the first-order limits and discontinuities in this belt are not defined by the strike-slip fault systems traditionally taken to separate distinct domains. Although the negative εHf(t) and εNd(t) indicate sources with long crustal residence for all studied granite plutons, the observed range is more radiogenic than the

    Full Text Available Most of industrial liquid effluents have high contents of heavy metals. The recovery of these metals is environmental and economically interesting. In this work we study the use of sludge, a by-product of the steel industry, as an adsorbent for the removal of heavy metals from liquid effluents. The adsorption of Pb2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Cu2+ and Cr3+ on the sludge was investigated by determination of adsorption isotherms. The effect of time, equilibrium temperature and concentration of metal solution on sludge adsorption efficiency was evaluated. The adsorption process was analysed using the theories of Freundlich and Langmuir and the thermodynamic values ΔG, ΔH and ΔS corresponding to each adsorption process were calculated. Blast furnace sludge was found to be an effective sorbent for Pb, Zn, Cd, Cu and Cr-ions within the range of ion concentrations employed.

    Los efluentes líquidos de la mayoría de los procesos industriales contienen una carga importante de metales pesados que, por motivos tanto económicos como medioambientales interesa recuperar. En este trabajo, se estudia la utilización de lodos procedentes de la depuración por vía húmeda de los gases de horno alto como soporte para la retención de metales pesados contenidos en efluentes líquidos. La adsorción de Pb2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Cu2+ y Cr3+ sobre el lodo de horno alto se determina mediante la obtención de las isotermas de adsorción, variando la concentración de las soluciones metálicas y analizando la influencia del tiempo y de la temperatura de equilibrio en la capacidad de adsorción del lodo. Para describir el proceso de adsorción se consideraron las teorías de Freundlich y Langmuir y, posteriormente, se calcularon los valores termodinámicos ΔG, ΔH y ΔS, correspondientes a cada proceso de adsorción.

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available Our paper proposes to analyze from a semiotic perspective the process of communication as conceived within the Palo Alto Group. We will firstly show that, as a result of the Group's critiques and revisions of the linear or mechanistic theories of communication, new perspectives are brought about for the essential axes of transformation within communication: we do not communicate as from a distinct atom to another, through an isolated channel, but through parts which are equal to the whole, the whole itself being equal to the parts. This approach has been characterized as “organicist”, and communication is now studied and understood as a dynamic process where the relationship between the elements is of prime importance. Reciprocal inclusion replaces the discursive aspects of communication and expression replaces representation. The reference point is thus situated beyond the mechanical parts of a whole ready to be dis- and reassembled. We conclude that through this perspective on communication, the notion of interaction between partners and between codes becomes a capital one and that, in this point, semiotics intersects with disciplines such as conversational analysis and the ethnography of communication.

Inicialmente observando recién nacidos normales y luego aquellos que eran ingresados a las pocas horas o días de nacer por diferentes entidades clínicas. Se definió junto a los neonatólogos el concepto de alto riesgo, entendiendo dicho término como aquellos bebés que por sus alteraciones psiconeurológicas en el primer mes de vida tenían altas posibilidades de presentar un desarrollo psicológico disarmónico, enlentecido o deficitario. Progresivamente el concepto se amplió al incorporar criterios relacionales precoces, la capacidad materna y de la familia para hacer frente a la situación. Las primeras experiencias fueron de seguimiento de estos niños y sus familias y paulatinamente se fueron incorporando pautas de observación de la interacción, así como de estimulación temprana siempre desde un enfoque vincular y familiar.

    Full Text Available Forest ecosystems for their important multifunctional value, need a complex and increasing amount of descriptive information to support their management. Ecological and environmental related attributes have became nowadays important as traditional ones, such as wood growing stock and basal area. The correct application of Sustainable Forest Management criteria is boosted by spatial contiguous knowledge of such attributes. For such a reason in the last years a huge number of scientific experiences in the forest area have been concentrated to study the relationship between data acquired in the field and remotely sensed multispectral images. Models based on such relationships can be used to estimate and map forest attributes acquired in the field on the basis of a statistical sampling design. can be sucould not take in consideration spatially structured data. In last years many researches have focused on possible relationships between field data and remote sensed informations derived from multispectral imagery. Modeling these relationships allows to extend inventory data to not explored surfaces. In this paper were discussed results on spatializing forest biometrical attributes, tree heterogeneity and dimensional heterogeneity assessed during an inventory of Mountain Community “Alto Molise” (IS throw Spot 5 and Lansat TM 7 imagery. For this purpose a multilinear regression and a k-Nearest Neighbor classifier were used.

    Paramillos Altos Intrusive Belt (PAIB) (Ostera, 1996) is located in the thick skinned folded-thrust belt of Malargue, southwestern Mendoza, Argentina. Geochemical, geochronologic and isotopic studies were carried out in it (Ostera 1996, 1997, Ostera et al. 1999; Ostera et al. 2000) and these previous papers suggested a minor involvement of the crust in the genesis of the PAIB. According with Ostera et al. (2000) it is composed by stocks, laccoliths, dykes and sills which range in composition from diorites to granodiorites, and from andesites to rhyolites, and divided in five Members, which range in age from Middle Miocene to Early Miocene: a- Calle del Yeso Dyke Complex (CYDC), with sills and dykes of andesitic composition (age: 20±2 Ma). b- Puchenque-Atravesadas Intrusive Complex (PAIC), composed by dykes and stocks ranging from diorites to granodiorites (age: 12.5±1 Ma). c- Arroyo Serrucho Stock (SAS), an epizonal and zoned stock, with four facies, with K/Ar and Ar/Ar dates of 10±1 and 9.5±0.5 Ma. d- Portezuelo de los Cerros Bayos (PCB), that includes porphyritic rocks of rhyolitic composition, of 7.5±0.5 Ma. e- Cerro Bayo Vitrophyres (CBV), with andesitic sills and dykes (age: 4.8±0.2 Ma). We present in this paper new Sr and Pb isotopes data that constrain the evolution of the PAIB (au)

    Full Text Available The research was conducted in the geographical region of Alto Urubamba, province of La Convencion, Cusco - Peru. The objective was to identify types of farmers and evaluate crops sustainability on farms of high forest. Surveys were applied to a sample of 106 farmers in both biophysical and socio-economic terms in order to identify typology; this information was analyzed through descriptive statistics. Multivariate analysis using preselected variables was performed to identify types of farmers. In addition, sustainability of eight tropical crops was evaluated; for this purpose, three farms for each crop were selected from 24 evaluated farms. Practical indicators of soil quality and crop health with a valuation from 0 to 10 were used; farmers participated during this evaluation. The results show that there are three types of farmers according to their efficiency in resources management and their economic logic. The crops of tea (6.65 and mango (6.50 obtained the highest values of sustainability, followed by coffee (6.25, cocoa (6.25, citrus (5.50, banana (5.45 and coca (5.10. Papaya (4.60 shows a value less than five; therefore, is considered as unsustainable according to local conditions.

  20. Contribution for geochronological evolution study of the Pianco-Alto Brigida fold belt system

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Proterozoic Painco-Alto Fold Belt is situated in the central portion of the Borborema Province and it probably is just a segment of a longer structural development encompassed between the Patos (N) and Pernambuco (S) lineaments. The geochronological study was carried out along a cross section in the central part of the belt (Paraiba State) where biotite-muscovite quartz schists are the predominating rock types, including intercalations of bi-modal volcanics, marbles and quartzites. These rocks were metamorphosed in the amphibolite facies, and they display a complex history of folding. Zircons of the acid volcanics (meta-rhyolytes where analysed through U/Pb method and they plot in a discordia diagram with superior intercept indicating ages around 1100 Ma. Whole rocks Rb/Sr analyses on the same meta-volcanics are indicating isochrons of 950Ma. These data are being respectively interpreted as ages of sedimentation (and volcanism) and regional metamorphism associated to the main (D sub(2)) phase of folding. One of the main purpose of this paper is to stress the importance of the ages around 950Ma, in the central domain of the Borborema Province, as result of regional folding and metamorphism. Some other occurence of ages in the 1000-900Ma range will be discussed as support for this interpretation from now on adopted. (author)

  3. Design provisions related to fire control in the Alto Lazio nuclear power plant

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The licensing activities at the Alto Lazio nuclear power plant included systematic revision of the fire control provisions and definition of several technical aspects related to specific design. The design of the plant was reviewed according to the Italian laws for nuclear installations in order to issue a construction permit and subsequently to allow the construction or installation of each building or system. Since the first stage of the review (construction permit and licences for civil work), special attention has been given to: analysis of fire risk, definition of fire areas and selection of materials. Specifically oriented criteria were defined in order to provide effective tools for decision making as well as adequate fire prevention and passive fire protection. Some problems that arise in applying the most recent standards were caused by limitations in the conceptual design and general layout that were already 'frozen' in the earliest stages. During the successive licensing activities, e.g. licences for system installation, it was necessary to hold further discussions on aspects such as: the extent of seismic qualification of the detection and extinguishing systems; centralized and local fire supervision; the role of smoke control and ventilation systems in fire fighting; plant control requirements in the event of control room unavailability; physical separation of equipment inside the primary containment; and the required reliability of extinguishing systems, including those features necessary to ensure manual recovery of the systems.

    Henderson, Caroline Blythe

    The purpose of this study was to analyze six brands of cane reeds and five brands of synthetic reeds to determine the differences in tone quality produced by each. Spectral analysis was used to determine the individual reed which conformed most closely to the average profile of each brand. A panel of seven saxophone performers then presented their opinions of the each reed's tone quality upon hearing a live performance of an excerpt from Eugene Bozza's Aria for alto saxophone and piano performed on the reeds most representative of each brand. The evaluation form used by the judges included ten sets of bipolar adjectives: good-bad, harmonious-dissonant, clean-dirty, light-dark, pleasurable-painful, beautiful-ugly, strong-weak, complex -simple, masculine-feminine, and interesting-boring. The results indicated that the primary factors influencing the tone quality of a given reed were the strength of the overtones present regardless of their order and the dominance of either the fundamental or the first overtone. Although professional musicians normally hand-select their reeds for performance, this research based on both spectral and subjective analyses provides clear evidence for both musicians and music educators to refine and improve their reed selection process.

    A paleomagnetic studystudywork was carried out on the Alto Paraguay Province (APP), a belt of alkaline complexes that parallel the Paraguay river for more than 40 km at the border of Brazil and Paraguay. The province is well dated by 40Ar/39Ar method giving ages in the range 240-250 Ma with a preferred age of 241 Ma. Intrusive rocks are predominant but the stocks may be topped by lava flows and ignimbrites. Paleomagnetic work on stocks, dikes and flows of the APP identified normal and reversed magnetic components which are carried mainly by titanomagnetites. The calculated paleomagnetic pole located at 319ºE 78ºS (α95 = 6º; k = 23) is in agreement with other South American poles of Permo-Triassic age. Most of the sampling sites showed large variations in rock magnetization, but similar patterns in the variation of the within-site magnetizations, mainly in dikes, suggest geomagnetic polarity transition records. The magnetization data along with the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility determinations suggested that the South and North areas of the province have different evolution characteristics.

    Slope instability research and susceptibility mapping is a fundamental component of hazard assessment and is of extreme importance for risk mitigation, land-use management and emergency planning. Landslide susceptibility zonation has been actively pursued during the last two decades and several methodologies are still being improved. Among all the methods presented in the literature, indirect quantitative probabilistic methods have been extensively used. In this work different linear probabilistic methods, both bi-variate and multi-variate (Informative Value, Fuzzy Logic, Weights of Evidence and Logistic Regression), were used for the computation of the spatial probability of landslide occurrence, using the pixel as mapping unit. The methods used are based on linear relationships between landslides and 9 considered conditioning factors (altimetry, slope angle, exposition, curvature, distance to streams, wetness index, contribution area, lithology and land-use). It was assumed that future landslides will be conditioned by the same factors as past landslides in the study area. The presented work was developed for Ribeira Quente Valley (S. Miguel Island, Azores), a study area of 9,5 km2, mainly composed of volcanic deposits (ash and pumice lapilli) produced by explosive eruptions in Furnas Volcano. This materials associated to the steepness of the slopes (38,9% of the area has slope angles higher than 35°, reaching a maximum of 87,5°), make the area very prone to landslide activity. A total of 1.495 shallow landslides were mapped (at 1:5.000 scale) and included in a GIS database. The total affected area is 401.744 m2 (4,5% of the study area). Most slope movements are translational slides frequently evolving into debris-flows. The landslides are elongated, with maximum length generally equivalent to the slope extent, and their width normally does not exceed 25 m. The failure depth rarely exceeds 1,5 m and the volume is usually smaller than 700 m3. For modelling

Two main phasesof tourmaline formation were identified by mineral chemistry. The tourmalines from the schist-hosted tourmaline layers arecharacterized by relatively low MgO (from 4.7 to 6.5%, Na2O (1.5 to 2.1% and CaO (from 0.2 to 1.1% contents andhigh Al2O3 (from 32 to 35% and FeO (from 6.7 to 9.0% contents, and also by two (REECN patterns, one represented by(La/YbCN from 2.7 to 4.3 and positive Eu anomalies, and the other by (La/YbCN from 0.2 to 0.3 and practically no Euanomaly. The variations in major-element contents reflect the composition of the rock being metamorphosed and in whichtourmaline is crystallizing, whereas the (REECN patterns indicate the evolution of the metamorphic fluid in face of changingmetamorphic conditions. The tourmaline of the tourmalinite layers intercalated in quartzite is characterized by relatively highAl2O3 (from 32.3 to 33.92%, FeO (from 6.54 to 7.3% and Na2O (from 1.8 to 2.1% contents and very low total REE (3.5ppm contents, in particular of HREE. The (REECN pattern for this tourmaline is characterized by a positive Eu anomaly,indicating a high fluid/rock ratio. The δ11B values for this tourmaline fall in the -12.3 and -13.9‰ interval.

  12. Study of the nuclear structure of exotic nuclei at ALTO: developments and results of two new experimental setups

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    ALTO (Accelerateur Lineaire et Tandem d'Orsay) is a facility composed of two accelerators dedicated to research and industrial applications. There is a 15 MV tandem and a linear accelerator. My PhD work was to develop the instrumentation of the linear accelerator part of ALTO which provides radioactive beams for fundamental research. These radioactive beams are produced using the Isotope Separation On-Line method (ISOL). This technique allows three kinds of experiments: mass measurement, nuclear orientation and radioactivity experiments. Among those three types of experiments, I worked on the development of two new experimental platforms for the ALTO instrumentation. The first one, BEDO (Beta Decay studies in Orsay) is an ensemble of detectors dedicated to β-γ spectroscopy of β-decaying nuclei produced by ALTO. I present in this thesis, the commissioning of this new experimental set-up, its technical characteristics and the tools development leading to the first results. For this commissioning experiment a mass 82 radioactive beam was produced, taking this opportunity the 82Ge → 82As decay was re-investigated allowing to establish a new level scheme for 82As and giving the first evidences for the presence of intruder states in the N=49 odd-odd isotones. The second project, which is developed, is POLAREX (Polarization of Exotic nuclei), a new facility for nuclear orientation experiments. My thesis deals with the entire reconditioning of a 3He-4He dilution refrigerator (major and most complex element of the facility) and R and D and technical developments of the platform. These contributions allowed the successful commissioning of the new experimental platform with the first physical measurements on 54Mn, 56Co, 57Co created by activation of an iron foil with deuterons produced by the Tandem.

Research was carried out in Alto Tirreno Cosentino, a small area lying between the Tyrrhenian coast and the Pollino National Park. In the area studied medicinal plants still play a small role among farmers, shepherds and other people who live far from villages and built-up areas. Methods Information was collected by interviewing native people, mainly elderly – engaged in farming and stock-raising activities – and housewives. The plants collected, indicated by the locals, have been identified according to "Flora d'Italia". The exsiccata vouchers are preserved in the authors' own herbaria. Results 52 medicinal species belonging to 35 families are listed in this article. The family, botanical and vernacular name, part of the plant used and respective manipulation are reported there and, when present, similar or identical uses in different parts of Calabria or other Italian regions are also indicated. Conclusion Labiatae, Rosaceae and Leguminosae are the families most frequently present, whilst Compositae and Brassicaceae are almost absent. The uses of the recorded species relate to minor ailments, mainly those of the skin (15 species, respiratory apparatus diseases (11, toothache, decay etc. (10 and rheumatic pains (8. The easy availability of these remedies provides a quick way of curing various minor complaints such as tooth-ache, belly and rheumatic pain and headaches and can also serve as first aid as cicatrizing, lenitive, haemostatic agents etc. The role in veterinary medicine is, on the contrary, more important: sores, ulcers, tinea, dermatitis, gangrenous wounds of cattle, and even respiratory ailments are usually cured by resort to plants.

  17. Occupational safety and health practices among flower greenhouses workers from Alto Tietê region (Brazil)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this preliminary study the occupational safety and health practices among flower greenhouses workers were evaluated. The study was carried out in the alto Tietê region, located at the Sao Paulo State, Brazil. Inadequate welfare facilities; poor pesticide storage, use and disposal conditions; use of highly toxic pesticides; lack of adequate data regarding pesticide use; and incorrect use and maintenance of PPE were observed in most of the visited greenhouses. These results suggest that, in greenhouses, workers may be at higher risk of pesticide exposure, due to many factors that can intensify the exposure such as the lack of control on reentry intervals after pesticide application. Specific regulations are needed to ensure better OSH practices on pesticide use and to improve working conditions in greenhouses, in order to deal with the peculiarities of greenhouse working environment. Some of the special requirements for greenhouses workers' protection are the establishment of ventilation criteria for restricted entry interval; clear reentry restrictions; and EPI for workers other than applicators that need to enter the greenhouse before expiring REI interval. Another important way to improve OSH practices among workers includes the distribution of simple guidelines on the dos and don'ts regarding OSH practices in greenhouses and extensively training interventions to change the perception of hazards and the behavior towards risk. - Highlights: ► Occupational safety and health practices among flower greenhouses workers were evaluated. ► Lack of clear reentry restrictions can intensify the exposure in greenhouses. ► Specific regulations dealing with the peculiarities of greenhouse working environment are needed. ► Distribution of simple guidelines relying on greenhouse working can improve OSH practices. ► Training interventions are important to change the workers' perception of hazards and behavior towards risk.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho estima o transporte de carga de fundo no alto rio Paraná em Porto São José, PR (22º45’52”S e 53°10’34”W, num trecho de aproximadamente 2 km a jusante da Usina Hidrelétrica Engenheiro Sérgio Motta (Porto Primavera, onde o rio Paraná apresenta canal único com largura média de 1.200m e vazão média anual é de 8.912 m³/s. O cálculo da carga de fundo do canal foi baseado na determinação do tamanho das formas de leito e de sua velocidade de deslocamento linear, obtidos a partir de sucessivos levantamentos batimétricos. Foram realizadas três campanhas de levantamentos ecobatimétricos em diferentes momentos do ciclo hidrológico do rio, sendo cada campanha constituída por dois levantamentos separados em intervalos de 16 a 20 dias. O cálculo da carga de fundo baseou-se equação: Cf = (1-pH k Ud onde p é a porosidade (adimensional, H a altura média das formas de leito (m, k o coeficiente morfométrico das formas de leito (adimensional e Ud a velocidade de deslocamento das formas de leito (m/dia. As dunas são as formas de leito predominantes neste trecho do rio Paraná, com comprimento entre 50 e 100 m (média de 70,68 m e altura de 0,80 a 2,20 m (média de 1,30 m. A velocidade média de deslocamento linear das formas de fundo foi de 56,8 m/mês, para o período de maior vazão; e 45,0 m/mês para o período de menor vazão. O transporte médio de carga e fundo no rio Paraná foi estimado em 2.820,6 ton/dia, o que corresponde a 1.029.300 ton/ano. Comparando com dados anteriores, os autores sugerem que o transporte hidrossedimentar de fundo no trecho de canal estudado está sofrendo interferência da barragem de Porto Primavera.

    Alto Patache coastal fog oasis is a protected area located south of Iquique, Northern Chile, being presently in charge of the Atacama Desert Center (ADC) research group of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, since 1997. On 2007, the Chilean Government bestowed a piece of land stretch covering 1,114 hectares to ADC scientific group for scientific research, ecosystem protection and environmental education. This oasis has been recently studied from different points of view: climate, biogeography, fog collection, geomorphology, soil survey and land use planning, plant distribution, conservation and archaeology. During 2009, a study of the geographical basis to elaborate a general management plan was undertaken to collect information to fulfill our planned out objectives. Through this study, georreferenciated strategic information was compiled to evaluate future actions conducting to a sustainable development within the protected area. This information was translated into thematic maps showing the spatial distribution of variables like: climate, geology, geomorphology, soils, vegetation, fauna, archaeological sites and management zones. The methodology used is the analysis of satellite imagery, using GPS by creating a cartographic Data Base incorporated in GIS. Results show that the area starts at the littoral plain, ranging from 500 m to 2.000 m, being continued in parts by a piedmont intercepted by a very abrupt mega-cliff, or hectares of climbing sand dunes leading to a short high plateau limited by a soft hilly area to the East. Two soil types are characteristic: Entisols (Torriorthent) covering the coastal beach sediments, and Aridisols along the cliff and adjacent hills. Vegetation consists not only of a very rich lichen cover, but also of endangered vascular species associations constituting a very fragile sub-tropical coastal desert community, such as Eulychnia, Cumulopuntia, Eriosyce cacti, and Lycium - Nolana- Ephedra communities.

    The Alto Tiberina Fault (ATF) is an unique example of active low angle normal fault (dip ≈ 15°), detected in the Northern Apennines from the interpretation of passive and active seismic data. This NW-SE striking structure has been mapped for a about 50 km along dip and is thought to have accumulated a total of 2 km of displacement in the last 2 Ma. In the last years, a dense, high resolution seismic network has been deployed in the area surrounding the ATF, with the aim of better understanding the physical mechanisms of earthquakes nucleation of such geological feature and assessing the potentially associated seismic hazard. In this context, a good knowledge of the elastic properties of rocks at depth is the starting points for building accurate and consistent physical models of ATF's style of deformation. We carried out a teleseismic receiver functions (RF) study on the 42 broadband seismic stations, using about 800 events from teleseismic distances, recorded from January 2010 to December 2011. We selected an average of about 70 high S/N ratio RFs per station, achieving a good azimuthal coverage for most of the stations. We separated the isotropic and the anisotropic component of the RF data-set through the harmonic decomposition. For each station, we performed a Monte Carlo inversion (using a reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm) of the isotropic component of the RF data-set, obtaining 1-D Vs profiles from the surface to 60km depth. This kind of inversion does not suffer of the problems related to the choice of a particular starting model, and has the advantage of inferring the degree of complexity (i.e. the number of layers) of the resulting model, directly from the data themselves. Preliminary results show an increasing level of structural complexity moving from west to east across the target area. A clear and shallow (~25 km) Moho is observed from the velocity profiles in the westernmost part of the region. Along the easternmost part, crustal

    The crustal deformation nature during the Cenozoic in northern Chile forearc (Coastal Cordillera; CC) is complex due to the several tectonics process involved, such as plate convergence, a continental orocline (Arica bend) and great degree of coupling between Nazca and South America plates. Such deformation could be regionally explained by an EW-extension generally accommodated by trench parallel faults system (TPFS). Also between ca. 19°-22° S, a small but significant NS-shortening produce folds and faults scarps striking orthogonal to plate boundary denominated trench-orthogonal faults system (TOFS). The main goal of this study is to understand the recent deformation history of the rocks units making up this part of the CC and the structural controls exerted on them by this fault systems. To achieve this, geophysical surveys have been conducted in Iquique and Alto Hospicio cities, both located in northern Chile. The results obtained by Gravity and Electromagnetics Transient (TEM) surveys are consistent with the nature and geometry of geological units previously identified in the zone. Sedimentary and intrusive rocks shows high values of density and resistivity, whereas volcanic rocks are associated with high values of density but low values of resistivity. This difference could be explained by water hosted by the fractured volcanic unit. Moreover, the sedimentary units are related to low values of density and resistivity. A first-order feature shown by the gravity anomaly is the existence of a NS sedimentary basin filled with gravels. However, this basin presents several discrete depocentres coinciding with EW faults. This could be interpreted as Quaternary deformation of the CC. TEM data shows changes in resistivity of the subsurface suggesting different relative levels for the same lithological units. These variations can be explained by normal or inverse movements of NS and EW faults that cut and displace all the units. In conclusion, results obtained from

    The Alto Tiberina Fault (ATF) in the Northern Apennines of Italy is a low-angle normal fault dipping to the East and accommodating up to 10 km of extension. The fault is ~70 km long and is the detachment for the SW-dipping Gubbio normal fault. The ATF fault system has been dramatically exhumed and the ATF footwall has evolved in a horst bounded to the east by ATF synthetic faults and to the west by the Corciano west-dipping normal fault. The fault has been widely studied over the last years in order to understand its mechanical behaviour, its present-day deformation rate and its seismological role. By using a wide data-set including subsurface data (seismic reflection profiles and boreholes) and surface geological data (new maps of the CARG project of Italy), we have reconstructed the 3D geometry of both the fault and of the main lithostratigraphic boundaries at the fault hanging-wall and foot-wall. The CARG map data were integrated by local observations and mapping using mobile GIS software (BeeGIS) and Android app (Geopaparazzi). Surface data were combined with seismic reflection profiles and wells interpretation and other data from available literature. The large amount of information were combined in MOVE software (Midland Valley Exploration ltd). Our reconstruction allows to i) build up a three-dimensional geological model of the subsurface including the main faults and lithostratigraphic boundaries; ii) identify a set of east-west trending faults the role of which was previously underestimated; iii) test a 3D-restoration of extension for the visualization of the time evolution and for the validation of the structural reconstruction. The restored structures are the main normal faults in the region. The sequential restoration was performed by taking into account the timing of deformation as derived from the literature. The model was sequentially restored according to the following chronological order from the latest to the oldest: 1a) last deformational event

  6. Metal and trace element sediment assessment from Guarapiranga reservoir, Alto Tiete Basin, Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Guarapiranga Reservoir, located in Sao Paulo metropolitan region, Brazil, is responsible for supplying about 20% of the entire population's water needs of this region or approximately 3.7 million people. However, this system has shown significant degradation in water quality, due to untreated domestic sewage and industrial effluents. In this study sediment samples were collected at five points along the reservoir and total concentration of some major (Fe, K and Na), trace (As, Ba, Br, Co, Cr, Cs, Hf, Hg, Rb, Sb, Sc, Ta, Tb, Th, U, V and Zn) and rare earth (Ce, Eu, La, Lu, Nd, Sm, Tb and Yb) elements were determined by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA). By inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP OES) the concentrations of Al, Ba, Be, Ca, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Li, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb, Ti, V e Zn were determined after digestion procedure following US EPA 3051 methodology. The concentrations of metals Cd and Pb were determined by graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) and total Hg by cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry (CVAAS). Methodology validation according to precision and accuracy was performed by reference materials analyses for the three different analytical techniques used. Multielemental results obtained by INAA were compared to NASC (North American Shale Composite), Upper Continental Crust (UCC) and soil from Guarapiranga park values. The Enrichment Factor (EF) and Geo accumulation Index (Igeo) were also evaluated for these data. Metal concentration results by ICP OES and AAS in the samples were compared to the TEL and PEL oriented values established by the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment and also adopted by CETESB (Environmental Protection Agency of the Sao Paulo State). The results were also compared to regional reference values (VRR) of limnic sediments from the Alto Tiete Basin. From these data an assessment of metal and trace element accumulated in the sediments from the

    1. In foregoing Fog Conferences, some of us have made explicit the rich botanic and faunistic inventory to be found at this Chilean Fog site. This was specially apparent under strong ENSO conditions, as it happened in 1997/98 in the area. Among the mammal biggest species represented, the guanaco (Lama guanicoe Müller) merits special mention. Clear traces of their presence and eventual hunting and slaughtering by primitive populations have survived until present times. Among them, the myriads of guanaco trails still covering practically all the slopes along the foggy area, close to the sea, and their wollowing and defecating places are found. Also, although less studied, plant eating traces left behind by roaming camelids can be seen. 2. Guanaco hunting traces still visible at Alto Patache can be portrayed differently through : A) Analysis of lithic artifacts used as arms in hunting operations; B) Botanic response to animal attack; C) Examination of topographic traits used by primitive man in guanaco hunting strategies. A. Hundreds of lithic instruments made of stone, were abandoned by hunters in situ, some of them were intact, some fragmented, which would demonstrate a direct relationship with hunting and slaughtering, and also their elaboration in workshops at place. Lithic points, scrapers and knives were found at places specially apt for hunting or slaughtering activities. Total isolation of the mountain fog site previous to our arrival in 1996, favoured their conservation at place. B. Careful observation of some local plants showed clear traces of guanaco feeding habits. As a proof thereof, old cactus of the species Eulychnia iquiquensis show in their basal portions clear signals in the forms of scars, caused by the eating by guanacos. Guanaco faeces were found at the foot of Ephedra plants. Many dead Stipa ichu plants (Gramineae), in different areas of the oasis provide evidence of cutting close to their basis, caused by sharp guanaco tooth under severe food

Los datos procedieron de mediciones realizadas en 2002 y 2007 en poblaciones de 6 a 17 años de Susques (3500 m y Alto Comedero (1200 m. Se calcularon las categorías nutricionales de Waterlow y las diferencias entre talla y peso y categorías nutricionales se establecieron con ANOVA y prueba de comparación de proporciones (χ2 respectivamente. Para ambas poblaciones se observaron diferencias interanuales estadísticamente significativas de los promedios de talla y peso, siendo menores en Susques en el 2007, lo contrario sucede en Alto Comedero. Las diferencias interanuales de la categorías nutricionales no fueron estadísticamente significativas en Alto Comedero, pero si en Susques para normonutridos y obesos que disminuyeron y aumentaron respectivamente entre 2002 y 2007. En el contexto de las modificaciones socioeconómicas experimentadas por la población susqueña en los últimos años, debido a su mayor conexión e integración con poblaciones vecinas por la apertura del Paso de Jama, los resultados indicarían un empeoramiento de las condiciones nutricionales de su población infanto juvenil.

  9. Definition of reference safety standards for the licensing process of nuclear power plants: The Alto Lazio case

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    An overview of the regulatory experience gained in Italy through the licensing process of the Alto Lazio nuclear power plant is presented. The main structure of the reference standard for Alto Lazio is constituted by United States rules, because of the strong link between technology and standards. The implementation of this set of standards in the Italian context involved an adjustment process in order to take into account the specific legal and institutional framework, the social conditions and the experience of the Italian industrial system. Consistent with this approach, the regulatory authority was devoted to an activity of interpretation and integration of the US standards during all the steps of the licensing process. In performing this activity, the regulatory authority ensured that the international regulations, the experiences of other European countries and the previous Italian positions played a fundamental role. Examples of additional criteria, requirements and technical specifications set up in this framework are presented. They concern, for instance, the implementation of probabilistic techniques, the radiological protection objectives, with a link between estimated frequencies of the event sequences and allowed consequences in terms of doses to the public as well as protection against man-made events and the application of the new symptomatic emergency procedures. The paper also illustrates some specific aspects of Italian law which facilitate an ongoing, and then more effective, updating of the reference standards. Post-Three Mile Island anticipated transient without scram and hydrogen control requirements and a position recently developed by Comitato Nazionale per la Ricerca e per lo Sviluppo dell'Energia Nucleare e delle Energie Alternative (ENEA) on severe accident response capabilities are given as examples. Lastly some proposals regarding possible applications of the ''intrinsically safe'' concept to Alto Lazio are discussed. (author). 2 figs

    Full Text Available Introducción: El aumento de los títulos de revistas brasileñas indexadas por el Journal Citation Report desde 2008 no ha sido acompañado por un aumento de las citas a las mismas revistas. Es decir, las últimas ediciones de este informe revelan un bajo rendimiento de las revistas brasileñas en el Factor de Impacto. En este estudio tratamos de explicar por qué ocurre esto. Método: Aplicación de técnicas bibliométricas, utilizando software libre Bibexcel. El corpus compuesto por 797 artículos de investigación publicados en revistas indexadas en Scopus - en el período de 2009 a 2010 - por los investigadores en el campo de la Odontología, de la Universidad de São Paulo. Resultados: Se encontró en esta área, que los artículos de alto impacto brasileños se publican en revistas extranjeras, que también tienen un factor de impacto alto. Se puede decir que hay un círculo vicioso que impide el aumento de factor de impacto de los títulos de revistas brasileñas. Por un lado, los investigadores brasileños deciden publicar sus investigaciones a fin de obtener un mayor impacto en revistas extranjeras con alto factor de impacto (citando los mismos títulos. Por otro lado, las revistas brasileñas - que publican artículos de investigadores brasileños - también reciben citaciones, pero sobre todo de títulos investigadores / revistas brasileñas. Conclusión: La accesibilidad (acceso abierto y visibilidad (indexación por sí solas no son suficientes para aumentar el impacto de las revistas brasileñas de una manera globalizada, para que puedan competir con (impacto y alto títulos extranjeros.

    Full Text Available En 1994, con la Ley de Desarrollo Agrario, el Estado ecuatoriano otorgó 127.279,28 ha de tierras para uso colectivo a 37 comunidades afroecuatorianas campesinas en elnorte de Esmeraldas. Veinte años después, estas tierras sufren fuertes presiones por la penetración de capitales con fines extractivistas y agroindustriales. Este artículo realiza un examen de la situación de presión sobre dichos territorios y evidencia una pérdida sustancial de los mismos por parte de las comunidades. Esto ha generado graves consecuenciasque atentan contra la cultura, la seguridad alimentaria y el equilibrio entre prácticas sustentables de producción y la conservación de la naturaleza. De forma paradójica, la vulneración al derecho al territorio se produce en un contexto en el que el Ecuador cambia su modelo de Estado, pasando de monocultural a multiétnico, con la Constitución de 2008, y a plurinacional e intercultural, con la Constitución del 2008. Estos marcos normativos consagran a los afrodescendientes como pueblo y como titulares de veintiún derechos colectivos.La investigación se llevó a cabo en el norte de la provincia de Esmeraldas, en los cantones San Lorenzo y Eloy Alfaro. En concreto, en las comunas territoriales asociadas a la Federación de Comunas Negras del Alto San Lorenzo (Fecona, que hace parte de la Comarca Afroecuatoriana del Norte de Esmeraldas (Cane. Esta comarca es una red de organizaciones de base étnico-territoriales que defienden los derechos al territorio ancestral afrodescendiente en Ecuador. En el norte de Esmeraldas, precisamente, se desarrolla una importante experiencia de defensa del derecho al territorio ancestral afrodescendiente del Ecuador. Gracias a las luchas de las organizaciones campesinas afroecuatorianas, el Estado ha implementado una serie de derechos para la preservación y el fortalecimiento de su identidad, tradiciones y formas de organización social.

    The resistivity survey carried out at the upper valley of the Patía River, provided good information to define the sedimentary sequence of the area. A general sequence from top to base is described as follows: recent deposits with resistivity values between 20 and 400 Ohrn-m, fine to medium grain, sandstones with resistivity values between 20 and 70 Ohrn-m, fine grain sandstones and silstones with resistivity values between 8 and 20 Ohrn-rn, and clayli basement, with resistivity less than 20 Ohm-m. There are two kinds of aquifers; free, related to sands and gravels from alluvial fans and terraces (resistivity values between 70 and 400 Ohrn-m and thickness between 25 and 75, semi-confined related to tertiary sandstones (resistivities values between 20 and 30 Ohm-m, thickness between 35 and 150 m. The water quality of the upper aquifers is good enough with small amounts of salt content. Saline water is found at the lower aquifer.

    The resistivity method was useful to locate geological discontinuities; some of them found with surface expression associated with lineaments and faults. Some of these geological features have been mapped in previous geological works on the area. In general the interpretation based on the resistivity results shows a block tectonics environment affecting cretaceous and tertiary rocks and probably the quaternary deposit.

    The Alto Moxoto Terrane (TAM), at the east of Paraiba State is mostly composed of sheared ortho gneisses, porphyritic granodioritic gneisses and it bears an imbricated sheet of Al-rich (garnet-biotite-sillimanite) gneisses, deeply affected by migmatization phenomena. This litho-structural assemblage is drawing a regional asymmetric anti formal structure, with its axial zone running parallel to the B R-230 highway (E-W trending). It is limited in both, north (Alto Pajeu terrane) and south (Rio Capibaribe terrane) sides by important shear zones, which are feather faults connected with the development of the Pernambuco lineament, to the southwest. The adopted designation of 'terrane' is based upon its singular geological features, in terms of lithological and structural characteristics, Paleoproterozoic in age and sharp limits with the different confining terranes. TAM is here considered as a mega-fragment of the Atlantica Super continent, that was built up by the Paleoproterozoic Collage ('Transamazonian') and that was preserved in the framework of West Gondwana (Brasiliano/Pan African Collage) as a 'terrane'. This terrane shows conspicuous continuity to the far interior of the province, to the southwestern part of Pernambuco State, and so doing, it demonstrates that the former designation of 'Caldas Brandao Massif must be ruled out, as obsolete for many reasons. Geochronological determinations using Rb-Sr, Sm-Nd and U-Pb methods confirm the Paleoproterozoic age of this terrane, with the presence of some Archean protoliths as well as the various degrees of structural reworking and isotopic reseting promoted by the Brasiliano Cycle. This cycle was responsible for some intrusive granites, for most of the general geological features, like usual informal limits and even the present shape of the TAM, a typical reworked 'basement inlier'.

    Full Text Available Migrations and population outbreaks of millipedes are phenomena that, due to their unpredictability, have attracted the attention of researchers in order to obtain information for a better understanding of this occurrence and for the adoption of efficient control methods when these arthropods cause damage to urban and cultivated areas.Cloudsley-Thompson (1949 reported that individuals of Fontariavirginensis spread over an area of 75 acres in West Virginia (USA farms in such large numbers that cattle were unable to graze and workers were nauseated by the odor exhaled by dead diplopods. At night and on cloudy days they moved in large numbers; most of them (a number estimated at 65 million animals were killed by the heat of the sun. Niijima e Shinohara (1988, in turn, reported that in Hungary in 1878, in France in 1900, and in Germany in 1906 and 1938, railroad tracks had to be covered with sand for train wheels to be able to adhere to them. In the same article, they pointed out that in Japan the millipede Parafontaria laminata became known by interrupting railroad traffic and emphasized that the population explosions of this millipede occurred at 7 to 8 year intervals and that most of the animals found were adults or sub-adults. This fact has raised speculations about the fact that mating could be a probable cause of such explosions. In Brazil, since the beginning of the 90’s, a population expansion of the millipede Plusioporus setiger (Brolemann, 1901 (Spirostreptida: Spirostreptidae has been observed in coffee plantations in the Alto Paranaíba region, MG (18º37´-19º00´S; 46º52´-47º30´W – a "cerrado" region that was deforested in the 70’s for coffee culture. The infestations probably started in the coffee plantations of the Macaúbas Farm – Patrocínio, and today reach coffee plantations in Monte Carmelo, Iraí de Minas and Ibiá. The phenomenon has been attributed to organic fertilization and irrigation of the coffee plantations

    Full Text Available Cultural assets are increasingly being considered in the policies of social and economic development of territories due to spillover effects. However, since cultural assets are not transacted in the market, their use value should be calculated using indirect methods of evaluation or non market techniques. In this paper, the travel cost method was chosen to estimate the curve of demand in the Museum of Lamego which constitutes an important cultural item of the Alto Douro Wine Region, classified by UNESCO in 2001, as a world heritage site – a living and evolving cultural landscape. The results of the application of the Poisson model confirm the expected, that is, the probability of visiting the museum is positively influenced by the educational level, female gender and negatively by the travel cost.

    Full Text Available In this paper we analyse the strategies of use and management of firewood by the families in Pozuelos, a community of the municipality of Chamula, located in the Altos de Chiapas. We also explain the factors that promote or hinder the acceptance of alternative technologies that aim to reduce the consumption of firewood among rural families and thus decrease the female workload and increase the conservation of the woods. The analysis is focussed on the times and workloads of bio-fuel supply as well as on the complementarity of functions in the domestic nucleus for the collection of the resource and on the factors that interfere with technology appropriation, in this case wood-saving stoves. This work identifies the role of the women as administrators of the forestal resources for energy purposes and points out the factors that restrict the acceptance of technological changes as sociocultural, economical, climatic and technical.

    The object transiting the star Kepler-91 was recently assessed as being of planetary nature. The confirmation was achieved by analysing the light-curve modulations observed in the Kepler data. However, quasi-simultaneous studies claimed a self-luminous nature for this object, thus rejecting it as a planet. In this work, we apply an {independent} approach to confirm the planetary mass of Kepler-91b by using multi-epoch high-resolution spectroscopy obtained with the Calar Alto Fiber-fed Echelle spectrograph (CAFE). We obtain the physical and orbital parameters with the radial velocity technique. In particular, we derive a value of $1.09 \\pm 0.20\\,M_{\\mathrm{Jup}}$ for the mass of Kepler-91b, in excellent agreement with our previous estimate that was based on the orbital brightness modulation.

    The Kepler mission has provided high-accurate photometric data in a long time span for more than two hundred thousands stars, looking for planetary transits. Among the detected candidates, the planetary nature of around 15% has been established or validated by different techniques. But additional data is needed to characterize the rest of the candidates and reject other possible configurations. We started a follow-up program to validate, confirm, and characterize some of the planet candidates. In this paper we present the radial velocity analysis (RV) of those presenting large variations, compatible with being eclipsing binaries. We also study those showing large rotational velocities, which prevents us from obtaining the necessary precision to detect planetary-like objects. We present new RV results for 13 Kepler objects of interest (KOIs) obtained with the CAFE spectrograph at the Calar Alto Observatory, and analyze their high-spatial resolution images and the Kepler light curves of some interesting cases. ...

    Comet P/Brorsen-Metcalf was observed on 1989/07/28+30 and on 1989/08/04+12(+14) with the 3.5 m telescope and the 0.8 m Schmidt camera at Calar Alto/Spain. The images exhibit a narrow plasma tail pointing into anti-solar direction. On 1989/07/30 a triple tail was found which can be interpreted as tail ray event. The coma isophotes show prominent asymmetries with the nucleus located on the tailward side of the isophote foci and with a slightly higher brightness in the Northern Hemisphere of the coma. A strong curved jet feature was detected in the coma on 1989/07/30. The jet extended at least 30,000 km into the sunward coma hemisphere. The rotation period of about 1.3 days, estimated from the curvature of the coma jet, needs verification by other observations.

  1. Isotope hydrology to optimize the management of water resources in northern Peru: The Alto Piura aquifer - Peru

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During the period January 2001-December 2004, a study of the more productive areas of the Alto Piura aquifer, NW Peru, was carried out as part of the IAEA's regional project RLA8/0/31. The final objective of the project was to establish a numerical model of the aquifer that can be used for a sustainable management of water resources. The study was conducted by the University of Piura. Based on regional geology and hydrogeological information, isotope and hydrochemical techniques were applied to obtain a preliminary conceptual model of the aquifer, and set the premises to achieve the objectives of the study. The studies showed that the Alto Piura aquifer is an heterogeneous system, consisting of alluvial and fluvial sediments, constituting a semi-confined aquifer. A significant lateral recharge from the heavily weathered and fractured igneous metamorphic massifs was identified at the NE sector of the study area. The alluvial fans in the NE region represent a transition area from the tributaries of the Piura river to the local aquifers. The hydraulic connection between surface and groundwater is not evident in the SW area. In this area, groundwater is of the type sodiumchloride and sodium-sulphate, with electrical conductivity values higher than 1000 μS·cm-1. In the NE area, waters are of the type calcium to sodium bicarbonate, with electrical conductivity values lower than 1000 μS·cm-, derived from weathered rocks in the neighbouring massifs. A large isotope variability was observed in samples from precipitation, rivers and aquifers, and could not easily be explained as consequence of the altitude effect. As alternative, the analysis of the isotope contents of springs is proposed. (author)

    The wine production in Alto Douro Wine Region - one of the world's oldest regulated and demarcated wine region - is based on a slope system organized in agricultural terraces once supported exclusively by dry stone walls. It has been undergoing the necessary changes for the introduction of technological innovations partially associated to the mechanization of vineyards work. In this sense, different forms of terrain framing have been implemented, namely the substitution of stone walls by earth embankments. This evolution raises a group of problems related to the hydric soil erosion and landscape preservation, since Alto Douro Wine Region is classified as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001. The study area is mostly occupied by vineyards planted in the agriculture terraces without continuous vegetation, the flow proceeds superficially influenced by the weak infiltration capacity and hydraulic conductivity. So, because of this conditioning factor the erosive features present non-significant depth, and the length thereof is limited essentially by the slope of the land, where was registered 64 gullies and 78 rills This paper focuses on the evaluation of susceptibility to linear erosion, through the application of SIMWE (SIMulated Water Erosion), (Mitas and Mitasova, 1998), using a digital elevation model, with pixel of one square meter of spatial resolution, created through detail aerial photographs, (side pixel of 50 cm), submitted to automatic stereo-correlation procedures in Agisoft PhotoScan software. The results provided by the model are compared with hydrological characteristics of the soil, (infiltration capacity, and hydraulic conductivity), soil texture, and soil structure parameters (identified by electrical resistivity measurement) where obtained from field monitoring. This approach demonstrates an association between the spatial distribution of erosive features with high values of soil saturation, and reduced water discharge (10-110 cm3/s), that are

Los resultados permiten comprobar los buenos resultados de aleaciones hipo eutécticas con relaciones de Cr/C altas y a su vez altos contenidos de Cr y de aleaciones eutécticas para menores relaciones de Cr/C y menores contenidos de Cr, en ambos casos los carburos eutécticos son de forma simétrica, regulares y no forman redes continuas de carburos asimétricos bordeando los granos, que presentan peores comportamiento en el impacto repetido y que son el caso de las hipoeutécticas con bajas relaciones Cr/C y las hipereutécticas donde aparecen también grandes carburos primarios.High Chromium alloys are used to manufacture grinding balls for the Industry of Construction Materials. Customers and users need to improve their knowledge about the relationships between microstructure and the parts damage in these alloys to obtain better technical-economics results. In this paper the results of a research to obtain different microstructures of eutectics, hipoeutectics and hipereutectics alloys are presented, searching for the lesser damage in these alloys. These alloys are tested in a repeated impact testing machine that simulate its mechanical behaviour .The results show a good behaviour for hipoeutectic alloys with high relations of Cr/C and high

    Context. The Kepler mission has searched for planetary transits in more than two hundred thousand stars by obtaining very accurate photometric data over a long period of time. Among the thousands of detected candidates, the planetary nature of around 15% has been established or validated by different techniques. But additional data are needed to characterize the rest of the candidates and reject other possible configurations. Aims: We started a follow-up program to validate, confirm, and characterize some of the planet candidates. In this paper we present the radial velocity analysis of those that present large variations, which are compatible with being eclipsing binaries. We also study those showing high rotational velocities, which prevents us from reaching the necessary precision to detect planetary-like objects. Methods: We present new radial velocity results for 13 Kepler objects of interest (KOIs) obtained with the CAFE spectrograph at the Calar Alto Observatory and analyze their high-spatial resolution (lucky) images obtained with AstraLux and the Kepler light curves of some interesting cases. Results: We have found five spectroscopic and eclipsing binaries (group A). Among them, the case of KOI-3853 is of particular interest. This system is a new example of the so-called heartbeat stars, showing dynamic tidal distortions in the Kepler light curve. We have also detected duration and depth variations of the eclipse. We suggest possible scenarios to explain such an effect, including the presence of a third substellar body possibly detected in our radial velocity analysis. We also provide upper mass limits to the transiting companions of six other KOIs with high rotational velocities (group B). This property prevents the radial velocity method from achieving the necessary precision to detect planetary-like masses. Finally, we analyze the large radial velocity variations of two other KOIs, which are incompatible with the presence of planetary-mass objects

    Full Text Available A mathematical model for burden distribution in the blast furnace, has been developed. A set of operational variables related with the charging system (Paul Wurth plus other parameters related with the burden itself, such as ore and coke repose angles, weights discharged and the effect of the uprising gas, have been taken into account. These data are processed by modern computer tools. As a result, the burden distribution inside the blast furnace is obtained. Every time that a charge is added to the blast furnace, the model updates the burden distribution. The approach employed is based on considering each burden layer described by a set of interrelated polynomials. It has been tested comparing its results with burden layers obtained in a physical model of the blast furnace (scale 1/10. After installation in Aceralia blast furnace B control computers, the model is currently being employed as a tool for process control.

    El modelo matemático desarrollado describe la distribución de carga en el tragante de un horno alto. Se ha empleado un conjunto de variables operacionales relacionadas con el sistema de carga (Paul Wurth, junto con otras obtenidas de la carga, tales como el peso descargado, los ángulos de reposo de los materiales y el efecto del gas al atravesar el horno. Estos datos se procesan mediante herramientas informáticas. Como resultado, se obtiene la distribución de carga en el horno. Cada vez que se introduce una carga, el modelo actualiza la distribución. La aproximación empleada considera el perfil de cada capa de carga, el cual está descrito por un conjunto de polinomios interrelacionados. Los resultados se comparan con la distribución obtenida en un modelo físico del horno (escala 1/10. Tras su instalación en los ordenadores de proceso del horno alto B de Aceralia, el modelo se emplea actualmente para el control del mismo.

We evaluated nine clones from the UFVJM germplasm bank, using cultivars Brazlândia Branca, Brazlândia Roxa, and Princesa as controls. The experimental design was blocks at random, with four replications. Plants were harvested seven months after transplanting. We assessed the fresh mass yield of vines and roots, as well as root shape and resistance to soil insects. Genotypes did not differ from each other for the fresh mass yield of vines (ranging from 3.81 to 11.76 t ha-1. The total yield of roots ranged from 22.0 to 45.4 t ha-1 and clones BD-06, BD-113-TO, BD-15, BD-38, BD-25, BD-61, and cultivar Princesa had statistically the highest figures. However, only clone BD-06 significantly overcame the control cultivars Brazlândia Branca and Brazlândia Roxa. Clone BD-06 had also the highest commercial yield of roots (38.58 t ha-1, statically similar to most of the other clones and cultivar Princesa (25.87 t ha-1, but superior to cultivars Brazlândia Branca and Brazlândia Roxa. Most of the clones tested, including clone BD-06, produced good shaped roots and were resistant to soil insects.

  11. Rb-Sr geochronology from Barro Alto Complex, Goias: metamorphism evidence of high degree and continental collision around 1300 Ma ago in Central Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Rb-Sr geochronologic investigation carried out on rocks from the Barro Alto Complex, Goias, yielded iso chronic ages of 1266 +- 17 Ma, for felsic rocks from the granulite belt and 1330 +- 67 Ma, for gneisses belonging to the Juscelandia Sequence. Rb-Sr isotope measurements suggest that Barro Alto rocks have undergone an important metamorphic event during middle Proterozoic times, around 1300 Ma ago. During that event, volcanic and sedimentary rocks of Juscelandia Sequence, as well as the underlying gabbros-anorthosite layered complex, underwent deformation and recrystallization under amphibolite facies conditions. Deformation and metamorphism took place during the collision of two continental blocks, which resulted in a southeastward directed thrust complex, allowing the exposure of granulite slices from the middle-lower crust of the overthrusted block.

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve por objetivo avaliar o estado nutricional, incluindo a prevalência de anemia, de crianças Kamaiurá, povo indígena do Alto Xingu, Brasil Central. Foram estudadas 112 crianças menores de dez anos de idade em 2000/2001. O perfil do crescimento infantil foi descrito segundo a distribuição dos índices altura/idade e peso/altura expressos em escore-z da população de referência do National Center of Health Statistics - NCHS. Os diagnósticos de déficit de altura e da relação peso/altura e o diagnóstico de obesidade corresponderam, respectivamente, aos valores abaixo de -2 escores-z de altura/idade e peso/altura e aos valores acima de 2 escores-z de peso/altura. O diagnóstico de anemia foi determinado a partir de concentrações de hemoglobina sérica inferiores a 11 g/dl para crianças entre seis meses e cinco anos de idade e inferiores a 11,5 g/dl para as crianças com idade entre cinco e dez anos incompletos, conforme recomendação da OMS. Aproximadamente um terço das crianças apresentou déficit de crescimento, enquanto déficit de peso/altura e obesidade não foram diagnosticados entre elas. A anemia esteve presente em mais da metade das crianças índias estudadas, 15% delas apresentando anemia grave. Há necessidade de implementação de ações que visem a melhoria das condições socioambientais, de saúde e nutrição desse povo indígena.In order to evaluate nutritional and anemic status, 112 Indian children (Kamaiurá, aged from 0 to 119.9 months, from the Alto Xingu region of central Brazil were studied in 2000/2001. The international growth reference - NCHS was used to evaluate height and weight, according to the child's age and gender. Growth deficit (stunting and low weight status (wasting were determined when height-for-age and weight-for-height indices were below _2 z scores, respectively, and obesity status when the weight-for-height index was above 2 z scores.

    A Mining Feasibility Study in the Area of Alto San Jorge, Department of Cordoba, Colombia, was commissioned by CARBOCOL S.A. to the Consortium Geominas-NACI. An area of 800 Ka2 was explored to define surface mining possibilities within two subareas referred to as Alto San Jorge and San Pedro Ure. Rocks of Cretaceous, Tertiary and Quaternary age crop out in the zone. In the subarea Alto San Jorge the principal structure is a syncline with a south-north direction. The San Pedro Ure subarea is formed by undulations with flanks of low dip, the most important being the San Antonio Syncline because it contains the mining block. The geological study of the surface demonstrated the existence of coal in the Oligocene Cienaga de Oro Formation and the Niocene Cerrito Formation, with potential resources of 6.3 billion tons. The subsequent exploration of the subsoil, with 20.618 m of drilling, permitted determination of demonstrated reserves in the order of 2.9 billion tons within two areas. In the sector selected for the mine plan, in the area of San Pedro-Puerto Libertador, 7.791 m of drilling was accomplished to define a demonstrated reserve of 515 million tons of coal down to a depth of 200. The combustible type coal has 5.000 cal/g. Complete mining schedules were developed at the prefeasibility level for two surface mines with productions of 1.5 MMTY and 4 MMTY. 9 figs., 3 tabs., 28 refs.

    The analysis of the human remains from the megalithic tomb at Alto de Reinoso represents the widest integrative study of a Neolithic collective burial in Spain. Combining archaeology, osteology, molecular genetics and stable isotope analysis (87Sr/86Sr, δ15N, δ13C) it provides a wealth of information on the minimum number of individuals, age, sex, body height, pathologies, mitochondrial DNA profiles, kinship relations, mobility, and diet. The grave was in use for approximately one hundred years around 3700 cal BC, thus dating from the Late Neolithic of the Iberian chronology. At the bottom of the collective tomb, six complete and six partial skeletons lay in anatomically correct positions. Above them, further bodies represented a subsequent and different use of the tomb, with almost all of the skeletons exhibiting signs of manipulation such as missing skeletal parts, especially skulls. The megalithic monument comprised at least 47 individuals, including males, females, and subadults, although children aged 0-6 years were underrepresented. The skeletal remains exhibited a moderate number of pathologies, such as degenerative joint diseases, healed fractures, cranial trauma, and a low intensity of caries. The mitochondrial DNA profiles revealed a pattern pointing to a closely related local community with matrilineal kinship patterns. In some cases adjacent individuals in the bottom layer showed familial relationships. According to their strontium isotope ratios, only a few individuals were likely to have spent their early childhood in a different geological environment, whilst the majority of individuals grew up locally. Carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis, which was undertaken to reconstruct the dietary habits, indicated that this was a homogeneous group with egalitarian access to food. Cereals and small ruminants were the principal sources of nutrition. These data fit in well with a lifestyle typical of sedentary farming populations in the Spanish Meseta during

    Full Text Available El estudio de grupos funcionales de plantas es una herramienta útil en la identificación de características ecológicas de importancia en la regeneración de una comunidad. El objetivo de este estudio fue la identificación de grupos funcionales de plantas en bordes de avance de un bosque alto andino y la evaluación de su importancia en el curso de la sucesión secundaria en pastizales abandonados. Con base en levantamientos de vegetación de 10 x 10m y en la revisión de atributos vitales de las especies registradas, se realizó una clasificación multivariante de las especies en grupos emergentes de plantas. Los atributos más importantes para la clasificación de los grupos emergentes fueron el método de dispersión, la formación de un banco de semillas y la presencia de propagación vegetativa y asociada a esta la ramificación basal de tallo. Se definieron tres grupos para las especies de estrato herbáceo y tres para las del estrato arbustivo-arbóreo, los cuales reúnen especies con estrategias morfo-fisiológicas similares. Dentro de los grupos definidos, las especies herbáceas dispersadas por diversos medios abióticos y las especies arbustivas con ramificación basal dispersadas por viento y por aves parecen ser claves en la colonización del terreno dominado por H. lanatus y en la facilitación del establecimiento de especies de bosque secundario.

    Full Text Available A população de pessoas deficientes vem crescendo a cada dia, gerando problemáticas sociais que interferem diretamente na qualidade de vida deste segmento. O objetivo dessa pesquisa foi investigar o esporte de alto rendimento como contribuição para inclusão social de atletas cegos do Instituto Benjamin Constant. Observou-se que os alunos egressos do Instituto, até duas décadas atrás, não davam prosseguimento aos seus estudos, embora gozassem de oportunidade igualitária e constitucional como cidadão brasileiro. Foram entrevistados dez atletas cegos egressos do Instituto, que estudaram entre 1994 e 1998, tendo na época da pesquisa a condição de atletas de alto rendimento e ao mesmo tempo cidadãos, que trabalham, estudam e são independentes. A pesquisa utilizou o método qualitativo, empregando como instrumento de investigação a entrevista semi-estruturada (Flick, 2005; Ruquoy, 2005. Para tratamento dos dados utilizou-se a técnica de “Análise de Conteúdo” (Minayo, Deslandes, Neto, & Gomes, 2002. Os resultados foram organizados em torno de três categorias: a importância do esporte, orientação e mobilidade, e a vida antes e depois de ser atleta. A pesquisa concluiu que o esporte de alto rendimento contribuiu para a inclusão social de todos os entrevistados. Seus depoimentos responsabilizam o esporte como fator primordial para realização de parte de seus ideais, sugerindo esta prática em todas as instituições de ensino especial.

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Resumen El cómputo de alto rendimiento es una necesidad para el desarrollo de investigaciones con grandes volúmenes de datos. La creciente demanda de este tipo de resultados ha impulsado a varios centros de investigación a poner en funcionamiento recursos de cómputo de alto rendimiento. En Cuba no existe una solución definitiva que permita a todos los centros de investigación disponer de los recursos de cómputo necesarios para desarrollar sus proyectos. Este trabajo propone el empleo de un clúster de computadoras de la Universidad de Griffith a través de una interfaz basada en el correo electrónico. Esta solución permite disponer de recursos de cómputo de alto rendimiento sin necesidad de una alta conectividad. Como caso de estudio se analizan los resultados obtenidos en un proyecto de optimización global en grandes dimensiones desarrollado en la Universidad de La Habana. Para experimentos con un mes de duración (en una computadora estándar los resultados muestran que al utilizar el recurso de alto rendimiento es posible alcanzar un incremento en el rendimiento relativo superior al 1300%. Abstract: Research with large volumes of data usually require access to High Performance Computing. The increasing demand for this kind of research has led many institutions to develop their own computer clusters. However, in Cuba there is no definitive solution for the High Performance Computing requirements of institutions such as the University of Havana. The expenses of building a computer cluster disallows many institutions to have their own, while the low connectivity limits the use of international high performance computing services. This research presents an alternative solution based on the development of an email-based platform for accessing a computer cluster at Griffith University in Australia. This new communication interface has been successfully used on a Large Scale Optimization research project at the University of Havana

  10. Energy saving in the pig iron production in the blast furnace no. 5; Ahorro de energia en la produccion de arrabio en el alto horno No. 5

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gil Diaz, Ricardo A.; J Quiroz, Francisco; Rodriguez, Rita Patricia; Banuelos Garza, Yolanda [Altos Hornos de Mexico, S. A., Coahuila (Mexico)

    1993-12-31

    Altos Hornos de Mexico (AHMSA) is an iron and steel industry integrated to Grupo Acereros del Norte in Monclova, in the Coahuila state. With an a installed capacity of 3.1 millions of tons per annum o liquid steel. In its installations, AHMSA has the highest capacity blast furnace installed in Mexico, blast furnace No. 5, that has a useful volume of 2,163 cubic meters, designed to produce 4,800 tons of pig iron per day. The basic goal to achieve in the operations involved in the production of steel through the pig iron production in the blast furnace, is the hot metal production at the lowest attainable cost within the quality requirements specified by the steel makers. The most important criterion for the recognition of the attained success is the fuel consumption per ton of pig iron produced, with coke as the main fuel fed to the blast furnace and therefore of the greatest impact on the final product cost. AHMSA contemplated within its strategic plan, the reduction in the production of its coking plants derived from the natural aging of its furnaces, consequently it is pending the shortage of coke for productions higher than 2.6 MMT of liquid iron. In response to this, and faced to the true need of diminishing the production costs in the process of making pig iron, new practices have been implemented in the use of complementary fuels to partially substitute the metallurgical coke as an energy source for the blast furnace process. The use of natural gas, fuel oil and the gradual increase of the temperature of hot blow, have strongly impacted the metallurgical coke consumption, lowering it considerably and diminishing the costs per ton of pig iron in blast furnace No. 5. Another important issue, is the utilization of coke fines resulting form the sieving of the same, directly fed to the furnace load. This practice reduced the coke consumption, and most of all, the output of our coking plants was increased on being utilized at the maximum coke production

  17. Nuclear structure of neutron rich gallium, germanium and arsenic around N=50 and development of a laser ion source at ALTO

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    During this thesis, we have studied β decays of gallium's nuclei around N=50 and prepared a laser ionization source at ALTO.The production of exotic isotopes has brought new beam production challenges. The one addressed here relates to the elimination of isobar contaminants that create background for experiments. To address this issue a laser ionization source has been developed at ALTO. Copper has been chosen to be the first element to be ionized for physical interests and to compare the results of the laser ionization source with the ones at others facilities. A laser setup has been installed and optimized in order to ionize selectively the atoms of copper produced for experiments. After the optimization, a test of ionization of stable-copper was performed. This test has shown us that the laser system is able to successfully ionize atoms of copper.The studies of the region of the neutron-rich nuclei around N=50 are still to complete. 79,80,82,83,84,85Ga has been produced using photo-nuclear reactions at the experimental area of the on-line PARRNe mass-separator operating with the ALTO facility. The fission fragments are produced at the interaction of the 50 MeV electron beam delivered by the ALTO linear accelerator with a thick target of uranium in a standard UCx form. The oven is connected to a W ionizer heated up to 2000 C degrees that selectively ionizes alkalis but also elements with low ionization potentials such as Ga. The ions are accelerated through 30 kV and magnetically mass-separated before being implanted on a mylar tape close to the detection setup, so that this system allows us to study β and β-n decays of 79,80,82,83,84,85Ga.The data analysis have produced new results concerning the decays of 80Ga, 84Ga and 84Ge. For 80Ga, the existence of an isomeric state has been confirmed and two different half-lives were measured for the ground state and the isomer. Furthermore, the analysis of 84Ga decay confirmed two states and allowed us to propose an

    RESUMEN

    El objetivo de este estudio consistió en examinar el efecto de la localización del partido, el nivel del oponente y el marcador sobre la actividad física de los jugadores en el fútbol de alto nivel. Para ello fueron analizados 27 partidos disputados por un equipo de fútbol profesional en la temporada 2005-2006 de la Liga Española de Fútbol de Primera División utilizando un sistema computerizado de análisis del juego. La variable dependiente consistió en la distancia cubierta por los jugadores a diferentes intensidades. Los datos fueron analizados mediante un análisis de regresión lineal que incorporó cuatro variables independientes: el marcador del partido, la localización del encuentro (casa o fuera, el nivel del oponente y el puesto específico de los jugadores. Los resultados indican que la distancia cubierta por los jugadores a diferentes intensidades estuvo influida por una o más variables contextuales, con la localización del partido y, sobre todo, el marcador como aspectos más relevantes. Los futbolistas recorrieron menos distancia a alta intensidad (>19.1 km/h cuando tuvieron el marcador a favor que cuando iban perdiendo. Los jugadores que jugaron en casa cubrieron una distancia mayor que los visitantes a baja intensidad (< 14.1 km/h, pero no se apreciaron diferencias a media, submáxima o máxima intensidad .No hubo diferencias entre ningún puesto específico cuando se comparó la distancia cubierta a baja intensidad. Sin embargo, los delanteros y los interiores laterales cubrieron una distancia mayor que los defensas y los mediocentros a submáxima y máxima intensidad.

Describimos un caso de tromboembolismo pulmonar masivo de alto riesgo que recibió tratamiento quirúrgico en vez de trombolisis debido a que al momento del diagnóstico presentaba un trombo móvil a través de un foramen oval permeable con altísima posibilidad de embolismo paradójico arterial.High mortality rate associated with massive pulmonary embolism requires an aggressive invasive approach including surgical pulmonary embolectomy when thrombolytic therapy has failed or is contraindicated. We describe a case of high-risk massive pulmonary embolism who underwent surgical treatment due to the presence of a mobile intracardiac clot in a patent foramen ovale, and the possible risk of paradoxical arterial embolism.

    Altos Hornos de Mexico (AHMSA) is an iron and steel industry integrated to Grupo Acereros del Norte in Monclova, in the Coahuila state. With an a installed capacity of 3.1 millions of tons per annum o liquid steel. In its installations, AHMSA has the highest capacity blast furnace installed in Mexico, blast furnace No. 5, that has a useful volume of 2,163 cubic meters, designed to produce 4,800 tons of pig iron per day. The basic goal to achieve in the operations involved in the production of steel through the pig iron production in the blast furnace, is the hot metal production at the lowest attainable cost within the quality requirements specified by the steel makers. The most important criterion for the recognition of the attained success is the fuel consumption per ton of pig iron produced, with coke as the main fuel fed to the blast furnace and therefore of the greatest impact on the final product cost. AHMSA contemplated within its strategic plan, the reduction in the production of its coking plants derived from the natural aging of its furnaces, consequently it is pending the shortage of coke for productions higher than 2.6 MMT of liquid iron. In response to this, and faced to the true need of diminishing the production costs in the process of making pig iron, new practices have been implemented in the use of complementary fuels to partially substitute the metallurgical coke as an energy source for the blast furnace process. The use of natural gas, fuel oil and the gradual increase of the temperature of hot blow, have strongly impacted the metallurgical coke consumption, lowering it considerably and diminishing the costs per ton of pig iron in blast furnace No. 5. Another important issue, is the utilization of coke fines resulting form the sieving of the same, directly fed to the furnace load. This practice reduced the coke consumption, and most of all, the output of our coking plants was increased on being utilized at the maximum coke production

    The National Geology Directorate of Mozambique (DNG) and Maputo-based Eduardo-Mondlane University (UEM) entered a joint venture with the South African Council for Geoscience (CGS) to conduct a case study over the meso-Proterozoic Alto Ligonha pegmatite field in the Zambézia Province of northeastern Mozambique to support the local exploration and mining sectors. Rare-metal minerals, i.e. tantalum and niobium, as well as rare-earth minerals have been mined in the Alto Ligonha pegmatite field since decades, but due to the civil war (1977-1992) production nearly ceased. The Government now strives to promote mining in the region as contribution to poverty alleviation. This study was undertaken to facilitate the extraction of geological information from the high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric data sets recently acquired through a World Bank funded survey and mapping project. The aim was to generate a value-added map from the airborne geophysical data that is easier to read and use by the exploration and mining industries than mere airborne geophysical grid data or maps. As a first step towards clustering, thorium (Th) and potassium (K) concentrations were determined from the airborne geophysical data as well as apparent magnetic susceptibility and first vertical magnetic gradient data. These four datasets were projected onto a 100 m spaced regular grid to assemble 850,000 four-element (multivariate) sample vectors over the study area. Classification of the sample vectors using crisp clustering based upon the Euclidian distance between sample and class centre provided a (pseudo-) geology map or value-added map, respectively, displaying the spatial distribution of six different classes in the study area. To learn the quality of sample allocation, the degree of membership of each sample vector was determined using a-posterior discriminant analysis. Geophysical ground truth control was essential to allocate geology/geophysical attributes to the six classes

    Full Text Available Efficiency of pulverized coal injection (PCI at two blast furnaces (BFs in Spain and Ukraine which operate at different burden and blast conditions has been analyzed using statistical methods, calculation of material and heat balances and a mathematical model. Effect of PCI on the parameters of blast furnace operation, pig iron quality and also on interactions between process parameters has been studied. At high-grade burden and high parameters of the combined blast, dependence of coke consumption rate on PC amount is linear up to a high rate of PCI. At unfavorable burden and technological conditions dependence of the main furnace operating parameters on PC rate has extreme character. High efficiency of PC use can be achieved at the different conditions due to optimization of the technological regime.

    Se analiza la eficiencia de la inyección de carbón pulverizado (ICP en dos hornos altos (HAs, en España y Ucrania, que operan en condiciones diferentes de viento y carga, usando un modelo matemático, métodos estadísticos y cálculos de los balances de materias y térmico. Se estudia el efecto de la ICP sobre los parámetros de operación de alto homo, calidad del arrabio y, también, las interacciones entre los parámetros de proceso. Al operar con una carga de calidad y altos parámetros de viento combinado el consumo de coque disminuye linealmente al incrementar, hasta tasas elevadas, la ICP. La dependencia entre los principales índices de fusión y el caudal de CP adquiere un carácter extremo cuando se opera con carga de baja calidad y en condiciones tecnológicas poco favorables. La alta eficiencia en la utilización de la ICP puede lograrse en condiciones diferentes mediante la optimización del régimen tecnológico.

    Full Text Available En el presente ensayo se analizan los cambios que AHMSA realizó entre 1982-2002 para mantenerse en el mercado al abrirse las fronteras a las importaciones con el ingreso a la OMC y al TLCAN. Esta etapa se identifica con una creciente globalización de las economías y de competencia por los mercados mundiales. La modernización representó un alto costo financiero, lo que condujo a la empresa a declararse en suspensión de pagos en mayo de 1999. Las causas de esta insolvencia financiera fueron la sobreoferta de acero en el mundo y la contracción del consumo interno, que desvanecieron los esfuerzos competitivos de la empresa y deterioran el desarrollo regional de Monclova, Coahuila.

  10. Water and Energy Savings using Demand Hot Water Recirculating Systems in Residential Homes: A Case Study of Five Homes in Palo Alto, California

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Ally, M.R.

    2002-11-14

    This report summarizes a preliminary study aimed at estimating the potential of saving potable water, (and the electrical energy used to heat it), that is presently lost directly to the drain while occupants wait for hot water to arrive at the faucet (point of use). Data were collected from five single-family homes in Palo Alto, California. Despite the small sample size in this study, the results make a compelling case for retrofitting homes with hot water recirculation systems to eliminate unnecessary wastage of water at the point of use. Technical as well as behavioral and attitudinal changes towards water conservation are necessary for a fulfilling and successful conservation effort. This report focuses on the technical issues, but behavioral issues are also noted, which may be factored into future studies involving local and state governments and utility companies.

  11. The magmatic and metamorphic evolution of zircons from the Barro Alto Complex (Goias State, Central region, Brazil), using backscattered electrons and chemical analysis by electron microprobe

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Zircon is a mineral much used in U-Pb geochronology because it is considered a closed system and has fairly high quantities of U and Th. In this paper, we study Barro Alto Complex (Goias, Brazil) zircons by backscattered electrons (BSE) imaging and spatial scanning profiles by wavelength dispersive spectrometer of Hf, Y and U. The BSE images and the profiles show variations in the internal structures and composition of zircon crystals that reflect the magmatic and metamorphic processes in the host rocks. Magmatic features are still observed, but metamorphic processes are registered in different textures on the zircons crystals; some are less affected because they are more resistant. The medium to high grade regional metamorphism of the Brasiliano Cycle is registered in all studied crystals and it may indicate an open-system geochemistry, that consequently affected the U-Pb isotopic system.

    Full Text Available This work describes the development and further validation of a model devoted to blast furnace hot metal temperature forecast, based on Fuzzy logic principles. The model employs as input variables, the control variables of an actual blast furnace: Blast volume, moisture, coal injection, oxygen addition, etc. and it yields as a result the hot metal temperature with a forecast horizon of forty minutes. As far as the variables used to develop the model have been obtained from data supplied by an actual blast furnace sensors, it is necessary to properly analyze and handle such data. Especial attention was paid to data temporal correlation, fitting by interpolation the different sampling rates. In the training stage of the model the ANFIS (Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System and the Subtractive Clustering algorithms have been used.

Las variables empleadas para el desarrollo del modelo se obtuvieron de los datos suministrados por lo sensores de un horno alto real. Fue preciso analizar y tratar adecuadamente dichos datos antes de introducirlos en el modelo. Se prestó especial atención a la correlación temporal de los datos adecuando mediante interpolación los distintos períodos de muestreo. El modelo se entrenó utilizando dos tipos de algoritmos: un sistema de inferencia neuro-difuso adaptativo (ANFIS y el Agrupamiento Sustractivo.

    2016-03-01

    Alto de la Blenda is a ˜6.6-Ma intermediate-sulphidation epithermal vein system in the Farallón Negro Volcanic Complex, which also hosts the 7.1-Ma porphyry-Cu-Au deposit of Bajo de la Alumbrera. The epithermal vein system is characterised by a large extent and continuity (2 km × 400 m open to depth × 6 m maximum width) and an average gold grade of ˜8 g/t. The vein is best developed within an intrusion of a fine-grained equigranular monzonite, interpreted as the central conduit of a stratovolcano whose extrusive activity ended prior to porphyry-Cu-Au emplacement at Bajo de la Alumbrera, which is in turn cut by minor epithermal veins. The Alto de la Blenda vein consists predominantly of variably Mn-rich carbonates and quartz, with a few percent of pyrite, sphalerite, galena and other sulphide and sulphosalt minerals. Four phases of vein opening, hydrothermal mineralisation and repeated brecciation can be correlated between different vein segments. Stages 2 and 3 contain the greatest fraction of sulphide and gold. They are separated by the emplacement of a polymictic breccia containing clasts of quartz feldspar porphyry as well as basement rocks. Fluid inclusions in quartz related to stages 2 to 4 are liquid rich with 2-4 wt% NaCl(eq). They homogenise between 160 and 300 °C, with very consistent values within each assemblage. Vapour inclusions are practically absent in the epithermal vein. Quartz fragments in the polymictic breccia contain inclusions of intermediate to vapour-like density and similar low salinity (˜3 wt% NaCl(eq)), besides rare brine inclusions containing halite. Laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) analyses of epithermal inclusions indicate high concentrations of K, Fe, As, Sb, Cs, and Pb that significantly vary within and through subsequent vein stages. Careful consideration of detection limits for individual inclusions shows high gold concentrations of ˜0.5 to 3 ppm dissolved in the ore fluid, which

    Full Text Available Este artículo partirá de las acciones paramilitares en el sector urbano de Altos de Cazucá, comuna 4 del municipio de Soacha en Cundinamarca. Allí, grupos paramilitares a través del uso de la fuerza, la amenaza y también la persuasión sobre la comunidad han ganado el control territorial disputado a otros actores armados. En este contexto, la población civil de la periferia de Bogotá y los municipios aledaños han sido blanco de grupos armados que luego de su incursión pretenden imponer su orden en aquellos lugares. En estas disputas, la población joven ha sido uno de los sectores sociales más afectados. Este artículo pretende mostrar que el control territorial que ejercen los actores paramilitares está supeditado a la intención de establecer un orden social, con una percepción sobre los jóvenes en la que coinciden además las instituciones del Estado y algunos habitantes de la comunidad. No obstante, lo que varía son los actos para ubicarlos en el orden social propio de quien ejerce el control. Palabras clave: paramilitarismo en Bogotá, jóvenes, agentes criminales, control territorial y orden social. ABSTRACT The following article will focus on the actions of paramilitary groups in the urban zone called “Altos de Cazuca”, the 4th commune of Soacha, Cundinamarca. These groups have managed to control the whole area against other armed forces through the use of force and menacing. The population living in Bogota’s outskirts and in its surrounding towns have been the target of different armed groups, such as paramilitaries and guerrillas, which, after settling in the territory, seek to impose their order in those places. There, young people have been deeply wounded by this conflict. This paper intends to evidence how the authority exerted by armed groups on the territory is tied to the purpose of establishing a common social rule in which the perception of the young community –those who must be fitted into society– is

    Full Text Available Este trabajo busca abordar la relación entre el contexto urbano y las interacciones entre las personas, identificando las dimensiones sociales y espaciales de esa relación, las que son enfocadas en dos niveles de análisis: el barrio, como base de los hogares de la muestra estudiada; y el individuo, en el contexto de sus redes sociales personales. Este análisis se hace a partir de casos de estudio individuales. La investigación se basa en un marco teórico interdisciplinar y en datos empíricos recogidos en Concepción, Chile· Los resultados sugieren la existencia de un espacio de actividades delimitado por los lugares donde los individuos desarrollan sus actividades sociales cotidianas, su entorno cercano. A ello se suma el espacio de movimiento que se conforma por la ruta o trayecto entre el hogar y trabajo de los individuos, y los lugares de interacción social con sus redes personales. Los análisis revelan la dualidad existente entre el espacio de actividades de sectores de ingresos altos y el de sectores de bajos ingresos, sugiriendo que la integración socioespacial y problemas concomitantes tiene ribetes más complejos y multidimensionales que los generalmente abordados en la literatura.

    Full Text Available A characterization of the hygienic and sanitary quality of uncooked milk in the Alto de Chicamocha (Department of Boyacá was made. An analysis with laboratory tests was made in which the total count of Somatic Cells, Mesophiles, Staphylococcus, Coliforms and Listeria were evaluated in Petrifilm 3M® slides and the Brucella (milk ring test test was carried out in 34 herds registered in the Federación de Ganaderos de Boyacá, in two different periods of the year. Statistics differences were found between the time of recollection and total counts. In the raining season cows are exposed to environmental contamination (mud, dung, etc, and therefore the total count of Mesophiles, Coliforms and Somatic Cells increases. Furthermore, the actives related to milking routine are not being effective in the reduction of the microbiologic counts. As consequence, the increase of micro organisms in the mammary gland causes mastitis and therefore a decrease in the quality of milk, which is reflected in the sanitary and hygienic components of the product and so in the economic benefits received by the producer.

    The direct measurement of metal temperatures during operation in superheater, reheater, and water wall tubes in zones exposed to high thermal flows is of great interest for the operation and analysis of the correct functioning of a steam generator. The operation temperature measurement of these zones differs very much of the monitored temperature in headers in the dead chamber, since the temperature measured in this zone is the steam temperature that does not reflect the one detected in the gas zone. For this reason, the thermocouples implant in gas zones will detect the real metal temperature and the incidence that some operation variables might have on it (Martinez et al., (1990). [Espanol] La medicion directa de temperaturas de metal durante operacion en tubos de sobrecalentador, recalentador y pared de agua en zonas expuestas a altos flujos termicos es de gran interes para la operacion y analisis del buen funcionamiento de un generador de vapor. La medicion de la temperatura de operacion de estas zonas, difiere mucho de la temperatura monitoreada en cabezales en zona de camara muerta, ya que la temperatura registrada en esta zona es la de vapor que no es un reflejo de la detectada en zona de gases. Por esta razon, la implantacion de termopares en zona de gases detectara la temperatura de metal real y la incidencia que algunas variables de operacion tengan sobre esta (Martinez et al., 1990).

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo muestra las dificultades con las que se encuentran los Deportistas de Alto Rendimiento (DAR a la hora de poder compaginar sus carreras deportivas con su formación académica y profesional. Para ilustrar esta realidad, se ha analizado la situación de nueve DAR franceses en esgrima y tenis de mesa. Los resultados muestran cómo existen diferencias significativas entre los DAR de ambos deportes. Por un lado, los tiradores de esgrima compatibilizan la práctica deportiva con su formación, ya que son conscientes de la necesidad de desarrollarse profesionalmente una vez finalizada su carrera deportiva. Esta situación es favorecida, principalmente, por la federación y por el ejemplo de otros deportistas. Por el contrario, los jugadores de tenis de mesa siguen un modelo monodeportivo, el cual se focaliza desde muy temprano en la práctica deportiva y deja a un lado la formación. Tanto la federación, los técnicos como los propios compañeros de equipo crean un ambiente en donde "salirse de la norma" implica un rechazo. Esta situación es analizada detenidamente.

    Full Text Available O trabalho objetivou avaliar os efeitos de diferentes rações comerciais com alto nível energético na incidência de ascite em frangos de corte. Foram utilizadas 1.200 aves de uma mesma linhagem comercial (Hubbard, distribuídas em 12 boxes, segundo um delineamento inteiramente ao acaso, com quatro tratamentos e três repetições de 100 aves cada. Os tratamentos foram constituídos por três diferentes rações comerciais trituradas (B, C e D comparadas com o controle, uma ração farelada inicial (A, do primeiro ao 39º dia de idade. Não houve diferenças entre os tratamentos quanto ao consumo, peso e ganho de peso das aves. Em relação à conversão alimentar, o tratamento C apresentou resultado significativamente melhor; entretanto, foi observada neste mesmo tratamento, a maior taxa de mortalidade. O maior motivo dos óbitos registrados foi a síndrome ascítica. Conclui-se que existe um favorecimento de surto de ascite pelas rações com melhor conversão alimentar nas aves.

  2. Short- and long-term monitoring of radon, thoron and carbon dioxide in soil-gas at Altos de pipe, Venezuela

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Radon and thoron activities in soil-gases have been measured since July 9, 1997 Cariaco earthquake (Mw=6.9) until the end of 2000. Carbon dioxide concentrations were also monitored between 1998-2000. The soil-gas was collected between 50-55 cm depths at two sampling points at Altos de pipe (Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Cientificas-IVIC) near Caracas, Venezuela. The radon and thoron measurements were performed daily employing radiation monitors with scintillation cells and the carbon dioxide was monitored with portable gas analyzers. Average weekly and monthly values were calculated and plotted for this three-four year period. In general, both the radon and carbon dioxide values showed sinusoidal trends due to seasonal changes. During the dry season the radon and carbon dioxide values decreased, while the radon activity was relative constant (flat) during the rainy season at one of the sampling points. Only two monthly radon values were seen to be anomalous in the graphs in respect to seven anomalous periods for the average weekly values. No anomalous periods were clearly seen for carbon dioxide. Finally, it was difficult to try to relate these radon anomalous periods with specific earthquakes due to the large number of minor earthquakes during these years, but it seem that the minor earthquake (Mb=5.9) of October 4, 2000 could be associated with the radon anomalous period in September, when there were no other minor earthquakes (Mb≥4.0).

    Full Text Available The Brazilian Law stipulates that water is a limited natural resource doted of economic value, thus it is necessary to develop mechanisms for its adequate management. Actions that encourage the farmers to apply soil conservation practices with the purpose of increase water yield from springs and to promote improvement of its quality, reducing production of sediment transportation, is being encouraged by governments, even with financial compensation for owners. From these assertions, this study aims to quantify the benefits of the conservation actions of the management units and to characterize a Water Yield Indicator (WYI to support sustainable actions in the watershed of Alto Rio Grande region, in the state of Minas Gerais (MG. To assess the impact of actions it were identified four scenarios of land use and occupation of the watershed from Marcela stream which is located in Alto Rio Grande Region. After analyzing the results, it can be stated that the scenarios simulation has demonstrated important changes in water yield and that the definition of the Water Yield Index from the junction of the erosion potential with the water storage potential, has proved effective, as it integrate quantity and quality of water.A legislação brasileira estabelece que a água é um recurso natural limitado e dotado de valor econômico; logo, há necessidade de se criar mecanismos para sua adequada gestão.

A mineração e as atividades agropecuárias foram exercidas na região até os anos 60, quando a atividade principal passou a ser o turismo, a partir da criação do Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros e da inauguração de Brasília. Em 2000, o fluxo de turistas decaiu devido a problemas relativos à saúde pública, acarretando estagnação da economia local. Nos últimos anos, produtores familiares despertaram para a existência, ali, de um café que pode ser comercializado em nichos de mercado de grãos especiais: orgânicos e de origem definida, e buscaram, na Embrapa, o desenvolvimento de projeto de pesquisa. O estudo na região revelou que por meio do desvelamento de valores - história, cultura e tradições - é possível estabelecer estratégia mais eficiente de busca de mercado, a partir da experiência revelada no trabalho concreto e na cultura dos produtores. E que o desenvolvimento rural deve ser buscado por meio do desenvolvimento de atividades da nova ruralidade e da aplicação de abordagem territorial de desenvolvimento.This work presents main results of how inhabitants of Alto Paraíso de Goias are seeking alternatives to sustainable development through the implantation, by Embrapa, of a project about the rescue of coffee.

Os valores de viscosidade intrínseca obtidos pelos dois métodos (extrapolação gráfica e por um único ponto foram comparados a fim de se verificar a validade da determinação por um único ponto para os sistemas analisados, bem como determinar que equação fosse a mais adequada para esse tipo de cálculo. Foram calculadas as constantes viscosimétricas de Huggins, Kraemer e Schulz-Blaschke e foi feita uma análise da qualidade do solvente, levando-se em conta também os valores do parâmetro de solubilidade de Hildebrand dos solventes e do polímero. Foi determinada a distância média quadrática entre as extremidades das cadeias poliméricas por meio da equação de Flory, para tal foram utilizados os dados viscosimétricos obtidos, bem como os pesos moleculares determinados por viscosimetria e por cromatografia de exclusão por tamanho. Verificou-se que o método de determinação por um único ponto foi apropriado para o polibutadieno alto-cis, tanto para o cálculo de viscosidade intrínseca quanto de peso molecular. Em tolueno, a equação de Solomon-Ciuta foi a mais adequada, ao passo que a equação de Deb-Chanterjee foi mais apropriada para o polímero em ciclo-hexano. Verificou-se também que o tolueno foi o melhor solvente para o polibutadieno em função dos maiores valores de viscosidade intrínseca e de distância média quadrática entre os extremos da cadeia polimérica. Os valores obtidos para as constantes viscosimétricas confirmaram essa observação.Viscometric measurements, in

    Changes in the topography and ecology of the San Francisco Bay Estuary ('Estuary') during the past 200 years have resulted in the loss of nearly 80 percent of the historical salt marsh in the region. Currently, numerous projects are being undertaken by federal, state, and local governments in an attempt to restore wetland habitat and ecosystem function at a number of locations within the Estuary. Much information is needed concerning the historical topographic and ecologic characteristics of the Estuary to facilitate these restoration efforts. This report presents previously unpublished vegetation and elevation data collected in 1983 by the California State Lands Commission at Corkscrew marsh, Bird Island, and Palo Alto Baylands, all located in South San Francisco Bay. These precise and detailed elevation and plant surveys represent a snapshot of South Bay flora before invasion by the Atlantic smooth cordgrass, Spartina alterniflora. Such precise elevation data are rare for relatively undisturbed marshes in the San Francisco Bay; publication of these historical data may facilitate wetland restoration efforts. Marsh-surface and tidal-channel elevations were determined at a total of 962 stations by differential leveling to established tidal benchmark stations at each site and referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) relative to the National Tidal Datum Epoch (1960-78). In addition, presence or absence of nine salt marsh species, percentage plant cover, and percentage bare soil were recorded for 1-square meter quadrats at 648 stations where elevations were determined. Collectively, over the three sites, salt marsh vegetation ranged in elevation from 0.98 to 2.94 m above MLLW. S. foliosa and Salicornia virginica were the most frequently observed plant species. Atriplex patula, Deschampsia cespitosa, and Limonium californicum were each recorded at only one of the three sites.

O aumento do teor de proteína nas isolinhas foi acompanhado por redução no teor de óleo e de carboidratos totais. Em relação à composição aminoacídica, o aumento do teor de proteína promoveu acréscimo em todos os aminoácidos, exceto glicina, alanina, metionina, cisteína e tirosina, mantendo a relação enxofre/nitrogênio. A quantificação dos polipeptídios mostrou que o aumento do teor de proteína manteve inalterado o teor das proteínas 7S, promoveu aumento no teor das proteínas 11S e, conseqüentemente, da relação 11S/7S. Pode haver melhoria na qualidade do farelo de soja das isolinhas, uma vez que as proteínas 11S têm melhor qualidade nutricional do que as proteínas 7S.The objective of this work was to characterize high protein soybean near isogenic lines. The increasing of protein was followed by reducing of oil and carbohydrate. In respect to aminoacid composition, increasing of protein promoted a rising in all aminoacids, except for glycine, alanine, methionine, cysteine and tyrosine, although the ratio S/N has been kept. The measure of polypeptides showed that the increasing of protein did not alter the quantity of 7S proteins, provided increasing of 11S proteins and 11S/7S ratio. An improvement of meal quality in these lines can occur once the 11S proteins have a better nutritional quality than 7S proteins.

    Full Text Available No alto Jequitinhonha, nordeste de Minas Gerais, a principal forma de os lavradores adquirirem terra é através da herança, sua própria ou do cônjuge ou, ainda, através da junção das duas. É muito difícil que se adquiram terra por outras vias. Assim, o dono da terra é antes de tudo um herdeiro, e a terra é, principalmente, um patrimônio formado pela família. O objetivo deste artigo foi analisar como posse e uso da terra se compõem com o ambiente e com a família, formando com ambos uma urdidura que passa pelo trabalho, pela herança, pela migração e pelo casamento, fornecendo elementos importantes para compreensão da sociedade rural e das formas de domínio da terra que se estabeleceram naquela região.In the High Jequitinhonha region of northeastern Minas Gerais, Brazil, farmers acquire land principally through inheritance: their own, their spouses, or a combination of the two. The owner of the land is, before anything else, an heir; and the land is primarily a family patrimony. The objective of this article is to add to the understanding of Brazilian rural society and rural forms of land control by analyzing the interaction among land ownership, land use, the environment, and the family, focusing on the effect of this combination on the inheritance process, migration, work, and marriage.

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se estudió el agroecosistema de la finca Alto Calima que utiliza prácticas agroecológicas y está ubicada en la cuenca media del rió Otún, vereda San Juan, Risaralda (Colombia. Dentro de un enfoque ecosistémico, se establecieron las relaciones de entradas y salidas de materia
    y energía, al igual que las relaciones internas del sistema agrícola; de esta manera se determinó si el sistema utilizado era sostenible. Por medio de preguntas en torno al funcionamiento y manejo del sistema agrícola, se pudo establecer que la finca cumple con los supuestos de sustentabilidad, debido a que la energía invertida en el manejo del sistema es equivalente o menor a la producción obtenida. De esta manera la producción se mantiene durante el año y es suficiente para asegurar la alimentación básica de la familia. El plan de manejo de la finca ha restablecido procesos ecológicos que logran regular los componentes del sistema. Este modelo ha propiciado el control biológico natural por medio de un manejo integrado de plagas; el mantenimiento de alta biodiversidad (más de 200 variedades de plantas; y el ciclaje interno de nutrientes suficiente para proveer energéticamente al sistema, evitando los subsidios de energía externa. Finalmente, se puede promover una integración regional, si más unidades productivas acogen este sistema, que aunque
    debe mejorar en sus procesos, conseguiría que la población campesina se agrupe y obtenga mayores beneficios de estas prácticas, entre ellos la ampliación de los mercados.

    Full Text Available O imenso déficit de atendimento referente a cobertura de coleta e tratamento do esgoto requer desenvolvimento de sistemas que combinam destinação adequada dos efluentes e baixos custos de construção e operação. Nesse contexto surge a biorremediação vegetal, através da fossa verde, tecnologia social sustentável e de baixo custo, apresentando-se como alternativa viável principalmente para a zona rural de municípios. Essa tecnologia social objetiva contribuir para o enfrentamento da problemática do esgoto domiciliar e das suas consequências para a saúde coletiva da comunidade e o meio ambiente; sendo alternativa de destinação do esgoto doméstico, além de possibilitar o cultivo de algumas espécies frutíferas. Mediante parceria estabelecida com o projeto Renas-Ser que atua na linha de gestão de corpos hídricos superficiais e subterrâneos, três unidades de fossa verde encontram-se construídas em comunidades rurais de municípios do alto sertão alagoano, contemplando o condicionamento adequado dos efluentes domésticos. Os primeiros resultados da observação pontual de redução de matéria orgânica são bastante animadores, tendo em vista a remoção de aproximadamente 38% da DQO já na primeira camada suporte. A etapa seguinte consiste na definição dos demais parâmetros a serem monitorados e verificar a aprovação dos usuários da tecnologia.

    Full Text Available A região semiárida do Nordeste do Brasil possui recursos hídricos superficiais escassos e mal distribuídos em nível espacial. Este trabalho tem como objetivo avaliar a degradação ambiental em alguns pontos aleatórios (açudes e leito do rio na bacia do alto curso do Rio Paraíba. Foram realizados registros fotográficos e coletadas coordenadas geográficas nos pontos aleatórios, identificando as áreas e causas da degradação ambiental na região. Os resultados mostraram que as águas do rio estão recebendo uma elevada carga orgânica, em razão, especialmente, dos efluentes domésticos, dos resíduos sólidos e das práticas agropecuárias; além disso, há outros meios poluentes e degradantes nos mananciais e cursos d’água, como o desmatamento da vegetação nativa e os processos erosivos que agravam os prejuízos ambientais. Em relação aos parâmetros físicoquímicos da água, observou-se que os sólidos totais dissolvidos estão adequados para os diversos fins de usos. Houve variação na demanda química de oxigênio, visto que, em todos os pontos amostrados, na maioria das avaliações, a água apresenta demanda química de oxigênio acima do limite permitido pela resolução do Conama 357/2005, bem como as concentrações de fósforos.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo aplica los modelos de Cournot y de Stackelberg a una industria de productos homogéneos con alto nivel de concentración. El objeto es usar estos modelos como criterio de decisión acerca de la alternativa de introducir una nueva marca por parte de un competidor actual. Se trata de establecer si lanzar una nueva marca sería una estrategia relevante para una empresa en la búsqueda de captar mayor mercado. Se asume que en un mercado de bienes básicos y homogéneos, la demanda no se modifi ca ante el ingreso de una nueva marca, y que el espacio de mercado que absorbe la nueva marca procede de la participación que resta de las marcas existentes. Se muestra cómo la cantidad que produce cada competidor nuevamente converge con el equilibrio de Cournot, por lo cual no existe benefi cio adicional producto del lanzamiento de la marca nueva, si se supone racionalidad. Teóricamente, las fi rmas con mejor posición en el mercado se verán menos inclinadas a lanzar nuevas marcas y preferirán mantener o mejorar su posicionamiento, las fi rmas con menos participación en el mercado serán las más inclinadas a realizar nuevos lanzamientos. Se concluye que la introducción de marcas en mercados homogéneos de bienes básicos poco diferenciados no es una estrategia interesante para incrementar la participación en el mercado cuando las marcas de quienes lanzan los productos no están bien posicionadas. Para los efectos de la ilustración de los planteamientos anteriores se utilizó como base la industria molinera de arroz blanco en Colombia.

    Full Text Available La aplicación del método de valoración contextual al análisis del gasto funerario en la Ampurias romana de época alto-imperial, ha evidenciado la enorme utilidad de esta herramienta en la reconstrucción económica y social del pasado de esta ciudad. Se han aislado las diversas fluctuaciones económicas registradas en los ajuares de las tumbas, desde la época de Augusto hasta la primera mitad del siglo II de nuestra era, confirmando lo que ya apuntaban las fuentes literarias y arrojando más luz sobre la naturaleza de tales cambios. También se han detectado crisis tan relevantes como la de tiempos de Tiberio y oscilaciones monetarias. Todo ello viene a probar la extraordinaria importancia de esta metodología para ampliar nuestro conocimiento objetivo de la sociedad romana y de muchas otras civilizaciones y pueblos de la antigüedad. ENGLISH: The application of a contextual appraisal method to the analysis of funerary expense in early imperial Roman Ampurias, has shown the enormous utility of this tool for the economic and social reconstruction of the history of this city. Various economic fluctuations have been documented in the record of grave goods, from the time of Augustus to the first half of the second century AD, confirming information already indicated by literary sources and shedding more light on the nature of these changes. Economic crises were identified, including some as significant as those experienced during the Tiberius period, as well as currency fluctuations. This serves to demonstrate the extraordinary importance of the contextual approach to expand not only our knowledge of Roman society, but also of many other civilizations and peoples of antiquity.

    Full Text Available The utilization of recycled aggregates can minimize environmental impact, and decreases the consumption of natural resources used for concrete applications. However, recycled aggregates are not suitable for use in the production of High Performance Concrete (HPC due to their relatively high absorption capacity, instable properties and weaker strength. Such difficulties can be overcome through selection and partial substitution of aggregates. In this paper, recycled aggregates generated from demolished-construction wastes were selected and different perceptual were substituted through natural aggregates for application in the HPC. Results show that specimens containing partially recycled aggregates are optimum for producing normal strength recycled aggregates concrete. = A utilização de agregados reciclados em concreto, além de minimizar o impacto ambiental diminui o enorme consumo de fontes naturais. Entretanto, os agregados reciclados não são usados na produção de Concreto de Alto Desempenho (CAD devido à alta capacidade de absorção de água, propriedades instáveis e fraca resistência. Tais dificuldades podem ser minimizadas com a seleção e a substituição parcial do agregado. No presente trabalho os agregados, gerados de demolição das construções, foram selecionados e diferentes porcentagens do mesmo foram usadas em substituição ao agregado natural para confecção do CAD. Os resultados mostraram que o agregado reciclado pode substituir parcialmente o agregado natural, para o mesmo traço, sem perda de resistência e com uma alteração bastante pequena na relação água/ cimento das composições estudadas, havendo necessidade de uma maior quantidade de água para se obter um abatimento igual ao obtido para o concreto sem adição de resíduo.

    Full Text Available A mancha aureolada do cafeeiro, causada por Pseudomonas syringae pv. garcae, pode provocar perdas de até 70% em viveiros e campos estabelecidos em regiões sujeitas a ventos fortes, temperaturas amenas, chuvas frequentes e bem distribuídas. Por meio de levantamento foi detectada a incidência frequente da mancha aureolada com severidade variável, alternando-se ao longo dos anos nas áreas serranas do Triângulo Mineiro e Alto Paranaíba, de topografia acidentada e altitudes superiores a 1000 metros, constituindo-se em sério problema, que pode inviabilizar o cultivo do cafeeiro naquelas áreas, devido à ameaça pela doença. Foi estabelecida uma zona bastante nítida quanto às condições favoráveis para ocorrência da mancha aureolada compreendendo os municípios de Serra do Salitre, Carmo do Paranaíba, Rio Paranaíba, São Gotardo e Tiros. Foi possível recuperar P. s. pv. garcae e P. cichorii de folhas sadias em diferentes estádios de desenvolvimento da planta, desde mudas até cafezais adultos e plenamente estabelecidos. A recuperação foi realizada pelo método de fricção da folha em meio de cultura semisseletivo, na ausência de sintomas, demonstrando a possibilidade de detecção da bactéria em plantas sadias. Dentre as variedades solicitadas pelos produtores para plantio em 2003/2004, não há nenhum material resistente, podendo, portanto, perdurar os focos de epidemias.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho objetivou delimitar, codificar e caracterizar as sub-bacias formadoras da bacia hidrográfica do Alto Rio Jamanxim, assim como, quantificar as áreas desflorestadas e a extensão da malha viária em sua área de drenagem, para os anos de 1999 e 2005. Para o desenvolvimento do trabalho foram utilizados dados referentes às “ottobacias”, hidrografia, rodovias, modelo digital de elevação (MDE e quatro imagens do sensor Tematic Mapper do satélite Landsat-5 (TM/Landsat-5 dos anos de 1999 e 2005. Com base em um modelo hidrológico gerado a partir do Modelo Digital de Elevação (MDE da bacia, na escala de 1:250.000, foi delimitada sua área de drenagem, bem como calculados seus parâmetros hidrológicos. Como resultado foram delimitadas e caracterizadas nove ottobacias na área de estudo, codificadas até o nível 5 (44291 a 44299. Em relação às atividades antrópicas na área da bacia foram identificadas as áreas desflorestadas até os anos de 1999 (635km2, correspondentes a 11% da área da bacia e de 2005 (1.257km2 representando cerca de 21% da área total da bacia. Houve um incremento de desflorestamentos, entre as duas datas investigadas, de 622km2, ou seja, 98 % de aumento. Quanto à malha viária, foi mapeada uma extensão total de 1.685km até 1999 e de 3.638km até julho de 2005, o que representou um incremento de 116% na extensão das estradas abertas no período de 6 anos.

    Full Text Available El estudio de grupos funcionales de plantas es una herramienta útil en la identificación de características de importancia en la restauración de una comunidad. El objetivo de este estudio es la definición de grupos funcionales de plantas en bordes de avance de un bosque alto andino y la evaluación de su importancia en el curso de la sucesión secundaria en pastizales dominados por Holcus lanatus. Con base en levantamientos de vegetación de
    10 x 10 m y en la revisión de atributos vitales de las especies registradas, se realizó una clasificación multivariante de las especies en grupos emergentes de plantas. Los atributos más importantes para la clasificación de los grupos emergentes fueron el método de dispersión y la ramificación del tronco en las especies leñosas. Se definieron cuatro grupos para las especies de estrato herbáceo y tres para las del estrato arbustivo-arbóreo, los
    cuales reúnen especies con estrategias de respuesta ante las condiciones que se presentan en los bordes estudiados.
    Dentro de los grupos definidos, las especies herbáceas dispersadas por diversos medios abióticos y las
    especies arbustivas dispersadas por viento y por aves parecen ser claves en la colonización del terreno dominado
    por H. lanatus y en la facilitación del establecimiento de especies de bosque secundario.
