    This document gathers numerous reports published by the CLI (Local Commission of Information) associated with the basic nuclear installation located in Brennilis, and also documents concerning this installation published by other actors (notably ASN, EDF). After a presentation of the CLI members, documents are gathered by themes: News (10 documents: reports of CLI sessions from January to October 2012, presentations by EDF and ASN), CLI operation (7 documents: creation order, members, internal regulation, site presentation, activity reports for 2009, 2010 and 2011), Works during consultation and public inquiry in 2009 (10 documents: mails exchanged between the CLI and different authorities, technical reports, report, opinion and conclusion of the inquiry commission, public meeting), consultation of the ASN on technical requirement project (notably with respect to water sampling and to releases by the power station), information on the Monts d'Arree site (22 documents: technical reports, information reports, radio-ecological investigation, environmental survey, mails by the different actors, i.e., the CLI, EDF, ASN), and reports of CLI plenary sessions (17 documents: reports from January 2009 to October 2012)

    2009-02-01

    The presence of actinium-227 has been noticed in the Mont d'Arree region (Finistere district) and such a presence in the environment had never been reported before. Thus, a study has been performed to investigate the origin of this element: about 300 samples have been analysed. After an indication of the investigation chronology, the report outlines that there is no relationship between the excess of actinium-227 and land amendment or embankments, that there is no obvious relationship between this presence and radioactive liquid effluents or atmospheric effluents from the Brennilis nuclear site. It shows that there is an obvious relationship with the radiological quality. It states that this excess of actinium 227 is related to the management of rain waters about the Brennilis site. An appendix specifies the location, nature and agenda of samplings (bio-indicators, samplings in sludge, soils, food and tap water, aquatic foams and sediments, ponds, wet lands, and at the vicinity of the power plant channel), presents detailed results obtained by gamma spectrometry, and measurement equipment and methods

    This decree from the French ministry of industry and postal services gives permission to the CEA to create a new basic nuclear installation, named EL 4D, which is devoted to the storage of materials from the partially dismantled Monts d'Arree EL 4 reactor. Thus, the CEA is allowed to carry out confining works on the reactor building with the closure of all apertures with the exception of the personnel entry sieve, on the circuits and equipments of the reactor vessel with the plugging of fuel channels, heavy water, helium and demineralized water pipes and of the heads of control rod drive mechanisms and other channels, and on the primary coolant circuit outside the reactor vessel and the steam generators with the installation of welded hatches. The irradiated fuels building, the solid wastes repository, the ventilation building, the heavy water and helium circuits, the fuel handling systems and the effluents treatment plant will be completely dismantled. The other buildings will be pulled down. The rest of the decree enumerates the general technical and safety prescriptions which have to be followed in order to ensure the protection of the personnel against ionizing radiations and of the environment against radioactive pollution.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2010-03-01

    After a recall of the project of stopping and dismantling of the hardware storage installation (INB n.162) which had been created after the stopping and dismantling of the Monts d'Arree heavy water nuclear reactor (INB n.28), this report analyzes the results of the public inquiry, and highlights the arguments of those in favour of this project and those opposed to it. Then, it states the Inquiry Commission's opinion which addresses the request for a national public debate, the project justification, the inquiry file, the site radiological status, the site radiological control during works, the impacts of dismantling, the various risks (for the population and the workers, in terms of fire risks), the issue of radioactive wastes, economic aspects (costs, jobs, local economy, tourism and site image), and site reconversion

    Depuis le début du lie siècle, la gestion des risques connaît une véritable révolution culturelle. Jusqu'alors fonction technique, centrée autour de l'achat de couverture d'assurances, elle est devenue une discipline managériale et transversale : une valise d'instruments que chaque manager doit connaître et appliquer quels que soient son domaine de compétence et ses missions au sein de l'organisation. En effet, la gestion des risques est une culture qui doit être assimilée par chacun des acteurs. C'est précisément l'ambition des 101 questions rassemblées dans cet ouvrage : apporter à chaque manager d'entreprise, de collectivité, d'établissement de santé..., des réponses claires au " pourquoi " et au " comment " : Comment identifier les risques ? Comment analyser les risques ? Quels sont les objectifs de la gestion des risques ? Une carte des risques pour quoi faire ? Pourquoi faut-il financer les risques ? Les entreprises ont-elles des responsabilités pénales ? En quoi consiste la gestion...

    This document is the update of the 'methodological guidelines for the management of industrial areas potentially contaminated by radioactive substances', published in 2001 by IRSN. Revisions intended to bring coherence between management of areas polluted by radioactive substances and the general policy applied to polluted sites described in a document published in Feb. 2007 by the French Ministry in charge of Environment. Requirements introduced both by the law relative to waste management of June 28, 2006 and the ministerial order of 17 November 2008 were introduced. The involvement of all stakeholders during the process was stressed. The updating mainly lead to introduce a clear distinction between polluted areas where uses are established and those without use or at redevelopment stage. When the uses are established, an 'Interpretation of the condition of environment' is conducted. Alternatively, the remediation process follows a 'management plan'. The revision also led to the disappearance of the 'doubt removal' phase which has been incorporated as an entire part in the site characterisation. Among other significant changes, it may be noted the evolution of the 'risk assessment' tools from simplified risk assessment and detailed risk assessment to a single tool allowing the quantitative assessment of exposure (EQER). Finally, the guidelines highlight stakeholder involvement in identifying the different participants and in reminding the benefits of a consultative approach. Whatever the remediation process: interpretation of the condition of environment or management plan; site characterisation is required as soon as a pollution is suspected. It includes literature reviews and field investigations primarily to confirm or deny the presence of pollution and, where appropriate, to determine its location, nature and level. The effort accorded to site characterisation must be proportionate to identified issues. The

    Full Text Available Le paysage est de plus en plus perçu comme une ressource. À ce titre, il est nécessaire de trouver des instruments juridiques, politiques ou économiques susceptibles de gérer cette « ressource-paysage » sur le long terme. Le gouvernement suisse a introduit récemment l’instrument des parcs naturels régionaux, organisés selon le modèle français, dans sa législation de protection de la nature et du paysage. Une mise en regard des nouveaux parcs avec des structures de gestion beaucoup plus anciennes, les bourgeoisies et les corporations, permet de mettre en évidence les forces et les faiblesses de chacun de ces instruments dans leur contribution à résoudre les rivalités d’usage entre acteurs utilisant ou influençant la ressource paysage. Cette comparaison permet de formuler des recommandations pratiques concernant la gestion de cette ressource.The landscape is increasingly perceived as a resource. For this reason, it is necessary to find legal, political and economic instruments that will succeed in managing this “resource landscape” in the long term. The Swiss government recently introduced the instrument of regional nature parks into the legislation governing nature and landscape preservation; the proposed parks are organized on the basis of the French model. The examination of the new parks from the perspective of much older management structures, i.e. the civic municipalities (bourgeoisies and corporations, makes it possible to demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of each of these instruments in their contribution to the resolution of use rivalries between actors who use or influence the resource landscape. This comparison also enables the formulation of practical recommendations regarding the management of this resource.

  13. origin of elements of the Uranium-235 family observed in the Ellez river near the EL-4 experimental nuclear reactor in dismantling (Monts d'Arree- Finistere department)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2006-01-01

    In a previous study which concerned the catchment basin of the harbour of Brest, the A.C.R.O. put in evidence a marking by artificial radioelements around the power plant of Brennilis which can be imputed without ambiguities to the nuclear installation. It also put in evidence abnormalities concerning the natural radioactivity which justifies this new study. In the area of the Monts d'Arree, actinium 227 ( 227 Ac), non born by its ascendents which are 235 U and 231 Pa is observed. This phenomenon is characterized by mass activities superior to these ones of 235 U and able to reach these ones of 238 U. Its presence corresponds with the drainage of the Ellez river since the former channel of radioactive effluents releases from the nuclear power plant EL-4 up to the reservoir Saint-Herblot situated 6 km downstream. The strongest values of radioactivity are registered near the disused power plant, at this place a relationship exists between the level of actinium 227 and this one of the artificial radioactivity as it exists a relationship with the decay products of radon exhaled from the subsoil ( 210 Pb). But its presence is not limited to a part of the Ellez river, it is equally observed in terrestrial medium, in places in priori not influenced by the direct liquid effluents of the power plant. This place is situated at more than 4 km and without any connection with the Ellez waters. At this stage of the study, it is not possible to answer with certainty the question of the origin of this phenomenon. A new reorientation is considered indispensable to clarify definitively the origin of this unknown phenomenon in the scientific publications and the environmental monitoring. (N.C.)

    Full Text Available Le patrimoine des ouvrages alternatifs de gestion des eaux pluviales ne cesse de s’accroître depuis maintenant plusieurs décennies. Pour les collectivités, organiser le recensement et développer des méthodes pour optimiser le fonctionnement et l’exploitation sur le long terme de ces ouvrages devient donc une préoccupation majeure. À partir du retour d'expérience de la Métropole de Lyon et des connaissances issues de la gestion la patrimoniale des réseaux d’assainissement, cet article permet d'identifier les questions émergentes et d'apporter des premiers éléments de réponse pour la mise en œuvre de la gestion patrimoniale des ouvrages alternatifs de gestion des eaux pluviales.

    managers in public administrations is suggested, as a further step in the development of a proper management of ungulates and other wildlife. Scientific research on ungulates in Italy was, in the last decade, quite uneven both in the species and in the disciplines chosen. There is a clear opportunistic approach to subjects, that often has no link with the real necessities of wildlife management. The development of long term studies is suggested, together with a more efficient coordination among scientist in the choice of the research subjects. Last but not least a more efficient founding mechanisms is needed in order to avoid money waste and to promote serious research programmes. Riassunto Gli Ungulati nel nostro Paese hanno proseguito, nell'ultimo decennio, l'espansione dei loro areali già iniziata nel decennio precedente e, per quanto i dati disponibili possono testimoniare, della loro consistenza. Tale tendenza è particolarmente chiara nel Centro-Nord, mentre nell'area meridionale il processo di sviluppo di popolamenti di ungulati delle diverse specie è rallentato se non assente, sia pure con notevoli eccezioni come la Sardegna dove, grazie ad un'opportuna politica di reintroduzioni, il Cervo sardo (Cervus elaphus corsicanus sta tornando nelle quattro province dell'isola. In questo quadro generale deve essere ricordato il ruolo rilevante dell'aumento degli ungulati nel favorire l'espansione dei grandi predatori, in particolare del Lupo (Canis lupus in ampi settori del paese. La gestione degli ungulati ha anch'essa subito una positiva evoluzione durante l'ultimo decennio sebbene persistano forti differenze fra Centro-Nord e Sud. Reintroduzioni di molte specie, effettuate con procedure nel complesso più corrette di quelle eseguite nel passato, hanno contribuito a colmare le lacune della distribuzione naturale di molte specie. Le statistiche d'abbattimento disponibili hanno dimensioni che suggeriscono un'accresciuta importanza degli

    1999-01-01

    Il y a une quinzaine d'années, la Division ST a introduit sur les équipements de chauffage et de climatisation du CERN, des systèmes de contrôle locaux à microprocesseur en lieu et place des chaînes de régulation devenues obsolètes. Adoptée dans une volonté d'évolution technologique et dans une démarche de rationalisation des dépenses d'énergie, cette technique s'est répandue sur les différents sites du Laboratoire au fil des années. Depuis les applications de confort climatique dans les bâtiments tertiaires, jusqu'au conditionnement d'air des accélérateurs et des expériences, en passant par l'autocontrôle des chaufferies centrales, ces 'Unités de Traitement Locales' (UTL) sont aujourd'hui interconnectées en un système de Gestion Technique Centralisée d'environ 140 sous-stations. L'objet du document est de présenter la structure actuelle de ce système GTC, d'en montrer les possibilités et l'intérêt dans son exploitation quotidienne au CERN, et d'aborder ses évolutions futures.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fournier, Marie-Claude

    Une caracterisation des emissions atmospheriques provenant des sources fixes en operation, alimentees au gaz et a l'huile legere, a ete conduite aux installations visees des sites no.1 et no.2. La caracterisation et les calculs theoriques des emissions atmospheriques aux installations des sites no.1 et no.2 presentent des resultats qui sont en dessous des valeurs reglementaires pour des conditions d'operation normales en periode hivernale et par consequent, a de plus fortes demandes energetiques. Ainsi, pour une demande energetique plus basse, le taux de contaminants dans les emissions atmospheriques pourrait egalement etre en dessous des reglementations municipales et provinciales en vigueur. Dans la perspective d'une nouvelle reglementation provinciale, dont les termes sont discutes depuis 2005, il serait souhaitable que le proprietaire des infrastructures visees participe aux echanges avec le Ministere du Developpement Durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs (MDDEP) du Quebec. En effet, meme si le principe de droit acquis permettrait d'eviter d'etre assujetti a la nouvelle reglementation, l'application de ce type de principe ne s'inscrit pas dans ceux d'un developpement durable. L'âge avance des installations etudiees implique la planification d'un entretien rigoureux afin d'assurer les conditions optimales de combustion en fonction du type de combustible. Des tests de combustion sur une base reguliere sont donc recommandes. Afin de supporter le processus de suivi et d'evaluation de la performance environnementale des sources fixes, un outil d'aide a la gestion de l'information environnementale a ete developpe. Dans ce contexte, la poursuite du developpement d'un outil d'aide a la gestion de l'information environnementale faciliterait non seulement le travail des personnes affectees aux inventaires annuels mais egalement le processus de communication entre les differents acteurs concernes tant intra- qu'inter-etablissement.

    With its 527 217 m{sup 3} of low and medium activity wastes put in storage between 1969 and 1994, the C.S.M.( center of storage of Manche) is and remains to this day a necessary element to understand the problems posed by the eternal storage of nuclear materials and the limits of the notion of reversibility. There are therefore teachings to be drawn. We cannot repeat past mistakes in particular with high activity wastes which we wish to bury deep underground. This report is based on the analysis of the existing bibliography, of the internal A.N.D.R.A. documents which we released to the public, of the lessons drawn from our participation in the official concerting and work groups, and finally of the data obtained after inquiries were done in the region in the framework of R.I.V.I.E;R.E. (citizens network of radioecological surveillance, information and evaluation). In spite of all efforts produced, many questions remain unanswered regarding this site so it is sometimes difficult to be more precise. (N.C.)

    Full Text Available Marqué par une biodiversité exceptionnelle et une grande pauvreté humaine, la destruction rapide des ressources naturelles à Madagascar place le territoire et son appropriation au centre des enjeux de développement. Dans ce contexte, cet article s’intéresse à l’émergence et à la mise en œuvre d’une politique publique touchant la Gestion LOcale SÉcurisée (GELOSE dont le principal objectif vise à transférer la gestion de ces ressources, de l’État vers les communautés locales, dans le but de les protéger plus efficacement. Cette lecture montre cependant que les objectifs, les ressources et les stratégies des principaux acteurs concernés sont difficilement conciliables et que le système de relation qu’il induit n’est pas nécessairement en phase avec les finalités poursuivies.Marked by exceptional biodiversity and extreme human poverty, Madagascar is experiencing a rapid destruction of its natural resources, placing territory and its appropriation at the heart of development issues. From this perspective, this article will look at the development and implementation of a public policy, the Gestion LOcale SÉcurisée (GELOSE, for the local management of natural renewable resources. This regulation seeks to transfer the management of these resources from the government to local communities in the goal of protecting them more effectively. We will see, however, that the objectives, resources and strategies of the primary actors concerned are difficult to reconcile at best and that the relational system to which the policy gives rise is not necessarily in keeping with the goals being pursued.

    “Festive urban events” (EUF) stand out not only as new social practices, but also as urban actions providing a basis for urban research. Compared to "traditional" urban actions and current methods of public space management, “Festive urban events” in public spaces follow different dynamics; they are ephemeral, cyclic, and immaterial. This research examines the management implications of “Festive urban events” and attempts to determine if these events‟ dynamics can unlock new perspectives f...

    Full Text Available Maroc a toujours fait du développent du secteur de l'eau une priorité et un choix stratégique. Ce secteur qui constitue un des principaux leviers du développement économique et social, se trouve confronté a deux défis essentiels: - L'épuisement des ressources en eau en rapport avec l'accroissement de la demande en eau tous usages confondus, avec une tendance a la pénurie absolue d'ici 2025. - La dégradation des ressources en eau qui subissent différentes formes de pollution. La rareté des ressources en eau, et la forte irrégularité aussi bien spatiale, que temporelle, qui caractérisent le contexte marocain, ont conditionné les choix des pouvoirs publics 2 adopter une stratégie globale dont les résultats ont prouvé son efficacité particulikrement durant les périodes de sécheresse consécutives. Cette stratégie tout azimuts a concerné aussi bien le plan législatif et réglementaire, que le plan de la mobilisation et de la protection des ressources en eau. Les études de pldcation entreprises ont montré que les ressources en eau conventionnelles seront saturées au niveau de la majorité de bassins a l'horizon 2020, et que ces déficits prévus risquent d'gtre aggravés dans le cas de conjonction avec des périodes de sécheresse. La politique de mobilisation et de protection des ressources en eau, en particulier souterraine dont le potentiel mobilisable est de l'ordre de 4 milliards de m3 sur un total de 20 milliards, nécessite une gestion participative ainsi que le recours a de nouvelles approches et technologies pour compléter les méthodes conventionnelles utilisées jusqu'a présent.Marruecos siempre ha considerado prioritario y estratégico el desarrollo del sector del agua.

    Full Text Available Le Bénin, pays de l’Afrique de l’Ouest est confronté à la destruction des terres humides particulièrement dans la partie sud du pays. Les terres humides riches biodiversité sont importantes tant pour les humains que pour milieu naturel. La menace la plus importante est la pression du anthropique. Même si ce territoire est reconnu par la Convention Ramsar, la destruction continue. En 1995 le gouvernement a décidé de créer une aire de gestion communautaire pour ces territoires. L’objectif de  cette recherche est de comprendre les grands défis liés à la mise en œuvre de la gestion communautaire des milieux humides à travers une étude de cas, en l’occurrence celui de la vallée du Sitatunga. Pour atteindre cet objectif, un séjour de 3 mois a été effectué sur le site. Des entrevues semi-dirigées ont été alors réalisées. Les résultats montrent que la vallée du Sitatunga est considérée comme inutile voire nuisible par les populations riveraines rencontrées dans le cadre de l’étude, qui sont davantage préoccupées à se sortir de leur état de pauvreté. Les traditions et valeurs autrefois attribuées à la conservation des milieux humides ont quasiment disparues et l’individualisme est grandissant. Il importe de tenir compte de tous ces facteurs pour espérer véritablement préserver ces milieux. D’un autre côté, parlant de gestion de l’environnement et plus particulièrement de gestion des milieux humides à l’échelle béninoise, le constat n’est pas reluisant. En effet, l’État étant donné son état de sous-développement et donc de manque de ressources, à du mal à coordonner ces activités. Il est de même pour les ONG. La situation est accentuée par l’état des relations entre ONG et structures de l’État qui se considèrent davantage comme des adversaires que comme des partenaires ce qui affecte l’efficacité des activités menées. Pour que la gestion communautaire devienne une

Il contribue à l’optimisation de la gestion du portefeuille client, plus précisément ce système permet d’acquérir de nouveaux clients et d’augmenter la rentabilité des clients existants. Cet article a pour objectif de répondre à la problématique suivante: le système de gestion de la relation client permet-il aux banques d’atteindre les objectifs attendus? L’étude que nous avons réalisée auprès de 47 banques commerciales marocaines montre que malgré le potentiel anticipé, les bénéfices escomptés d’un tel système restent limités. En effet, l’utilisation de ce système reste à son état embryonnaire, il se centre principalement sur la collecte des informations clients au niveau des agences tandis que l’analyse et l’exploitation de ces informations se fait au niveau du siège de la banque. De même, les opérations basiques de la banque occupent une grande part du temps de travail des agents de la banque au dépend des services bancaires à valeur ajoutée. D’un autre côté, une grande part des banques adoptant ce système ne mesurent pas le coût de la relation avec leurs clients.

  1. La gestione dei flussi turistici tramite sistemi di trasporto innovativi: l’esempio di Perugia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leonardo Naldini

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available La città di Perugia ha, fin dagli anni ’70, unito alla sua capacità di attrazione turistica, dovuta al patrimonio storico ambientale plurimillenario, una volontà di affrontare il tema della mobilità urbana in maniera profondamente innovativa ed ambientalmente sostenibile. Il concetto della creazione di parcheggi di attestazione, serviti da percorsi meccanizzati di risalita verso l’acropoli, è stato recentemente ampliato dalla creazione del Minimetro, mezzo di trasporto innovativo, dal ridottissimo impatto ambientale, che unisce in soli 12 minuti, con un servizio semicontinuo, l’area di valle di Pian di Massiano, dotata di un capace parcheggio da circa 2800 posti auto, al centro cittadino, servendo diversi quartieri urbani. Tale sistema di trasporto, corridoio forte del trasporto pubblico urbano, ha fornito lo spunto per attuare una nuova modalità di gestione dei flussi turistici, che individua nel Minimetro la modalità principale di accesso al centro storico sia per i gruppi a numero ridotto, sia per i gruppi organizzati in arrivo con i bus turistici. L’organizzazione della mobilità turistica che ne è derivata costituisce un ulteriore passo in avanti lungo quell’itinerario di gestione della città che cerca di coniugare l’attrattiva turistica, con le sue ricadute in termini di crescita economica, e la salvaguardia del patrimonio storico artistico e della qualità della vita dei cittadini. Gli scenari futuri vedono un’iniezione di tecnologia in questo contesto, con l’introduzione nella gestione dei flussi turistici dei concetti di accreditamento, dell’infomobilità come supporto alle politiche urbane, del controllo unito alla fornitura di servizi georeferenziati.

    In 2006, the Argentine Nuclear Regulatory Authority has initiated a regulatory knowledge management process to face the loss of knowledge resulting from retiring experts, the generation gap, and the existing need to train new human resources. A number of projects have been started together with the technical assistance of the National Public Administration Institute to preserve knowledge and render it explicit for the coming generations. These projects include 'The History of the Expert's Learning Process' in which the majority of the most critical experts have been interviewed so far. The results of this project help envision a training structure and prospective projects. An Internet Site has also been created on the Intranet in order to render knowledge explicit and facilitate the tools for knowledge management initiatives. Furthermore, ARN's knowledge map project has also been started. (author) [Spanish] La Autoridad Regulatoria Nuclear (ARN), es un Organismo Autarquico de la Administracion Publica Nacional de la Republica Argentina.

    An Environmental Management System was implemented in ANAV in 1999, including the two nuclear sites of the Asco and Vandellos II nuclear power plants. This implementation entailed formulation of the ANAV Environmental Policy, preparation of an Environmental Management Plan (PLAGMA) supported by the Environmental Aspects Manuals (MASMA) of each site and their operating procedures, modification of the organizational structure to create the Environment Unit, in charge of implementing the SIGEMA, and the Environment Committee, the governing body that reviews the results obtained and environmental goals to be achieved, and direct involvement of all the different ANAV organization in continuous improvement of the SIGEMA implementation. Special attention is paid to evolution of the environmental indicators, to communication and specific training in environmental issues, and to waste management and the different programs for increasing waste recycling and assessment, as well as to minimization programs. The article details the different approaches used to improve the environmental results in these last five years, which have allowed ANAV to maintain the ISO-14001 Certification since 1999. (Author)

    Full Text Available Les dunes de Basse-Normandie sont caractérisées par des dépressions humides de dimensions variables. Ces dépressions recèlent des habitats et une flore riches, ce qui leur confère un grand intérêt patrimonial. Mais ces milieux connaissent depuis quelques années une dynamique forte d'embroussaillement. Cette dernière, directement liée à un assèchement, préoccupe les gestionnaires. L'analyse des processus d'assèchement des dépressions humides met en avant la combinaison des paramètres en cause (conditions hydropédologiques, actions anthropiques et permet donc d'optimiser la gestion patrimoniale de ces sites.The dunes of Lower Normandy are characterized by moist depressions of various sizes. The depressions harbour a rich fauna and habitats, which are therefore of great patrimonial interest. But this environment has for some years witnessed an overgrowth of brushwood. This last one, directly connected to a drying out, worries the managers. The analysis of processes of drying out of dune slacks shows the combination of parameters involved (moisture conditions in the soil, human actions, and thus allows to optimise the patrimonial management of these sites.

    Full Text Available Dans la mouvance des grandes mutations des années 1960-1970 en Camargue gardoise et face à l’obsolescence du Traité des Marais qui réglait la gestion collective des niveaux d’eau, les acteurs économiques liés à l’eau se sont positionnés sur des logiques individualistes. L’eau est devenue l’objet de maints conflits avec de graves conséquences sur les ressources et les milieux. La mise en œuvre d’une Charte de l’environnement et d’un SAGE au début des années 1990 a constitué les prémices du retour du « collectif » dans la gestion de l’eau. Mais on est encore loin de l’eau comme vecteur d’une construction territoriale à travers une communauté de projets liée à l’eau. Dans ce contexte, les crues de 2002 et 2003 sont apparues comme des révélateurs des inadéquations territoriales en cas de gestion de crise. Elles montrent que les politiques de l’eau ne peuvent faire l’impasse d’une réflexion sur l’articulation entre les différents espaces de décision et de solidarité.Next to the major changes which occurred in the « Camargue gardoise » during sixties and seventies, and because of the becoming obsolete « Traité des Marais » which was regulating the collective management of water levels, the economic actors dealing with water concerns have been developing individualistic policies. Water has became a source of many conflicts implying serious consequences on resources and natural spaces. The achievement of an environmental chart and of a « SAGE » at the beginning of the nineties were the ground baits for a come back to a collective form of water management. However, it’s a long way to consider water as a vector of territorial construction thanks to collective agreements about projects dealing with water. In the following context, the 2002 and 2003 floods have revealed territorial limitations to manage this kind of crisis. They have shown that the water policies have to take inot

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available Comment définir et analyser sociologiquement la gestion ? C’est à cette interrogation que cet article propose des réponses. Dans cette perspective, les auteurs rappellent que la plupart des activités sociales sont dorénavant concernées par des dispositifs de gestion ou, à tout le moins, par des raisonnements qui empruntent à cette discipline. Aussi, en rendre compte avec les catégories de la sociologie, dans une visée de connaissance, et non d’aide à l’action gestionnaire, constitue-t-il un objectif légitime. C’est pourquoi, les auteurs construisent un programme détaillé de recherche, en trois axes, tenant compte aussi bien des acteurs, des visées, que des principes et dispositifs. Ils y voient un moyen d’apprécier les dynamiques à l’œuvre dans la gestionnarisation de la société et, peut-être, d’envisager des conceptions alternatives.The sociological definition and analysis of management is the authors concern. They recall how most social activities have now become management issues or at least coloured by them. Establishing this fact from a sociological angle, independently of concrete concerns, is a legitimate contribution to knowledge. Hence three programmatic research axes are proposed taking into account the actors, their goals, principles as well as ways and means. What is going forward in the managerialization of society can thus be exposed and alternatives eventually envisaged.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Conrad, Heloise

    L'evolution technologique des composants electroniques entraine des problemes de gestion de l'obsolescence dans le secteur aeronautique. Les systemes aeronautiques ont en effet des durees de vie nettement superieures aux composants qu'ils contiennent. Cette difference de duree de vie et les normes strictes propres a l'aeronautique obligent les constructeurs a mettre en place une gestion efficace de l'obsolescence pour eviter les couts supplementaires de maintenance et de retards. De plus, a cause des faibles volumes de production qu'ils representent, les constructeurs aeronautiques n'ont que peu de controle sur leur chaine d'approvisionnement. La litterature offre beaucoup d'etudes sur l'obsolescence, appliquees a l'aeronautique. Les auteurs recommandent de mettre en place des processus de gestion et de prevision de l'obsolescence, et de construire des relations de collaboration avec leurs fournisseurs, qui ont plus de visibilite sur la chaine d'approvisionnement. Cette recherche presente d'abord l'elaboration d'une liste de criteres de bonne gestion de l'obsolescence, ainsi que la creation d'une methode de generation de plan de transition et de mise en oeuvre de l'amelioration de la gestion et de la prevision de l'obsolescence pour un cas concret. La methode est creee pour un manufacturier aeronautique ne possedant pas de systemes de gestion proactive ou de prevision de l'obsolescence. La creation de la methode s'est faite en suivant la methodologie de la science de la conception, en impliquant les employes concernes par la gestion de l'obsolescence. La methode comporte douze (12) etapes, amenant au developpement du plan de transition et de mise en oeuvre. Pour applique la methode, divers entretiens individuels et de groupe ont ete realises. Ces entretiens ont aussi permis de lister les criteres de gestion et de prevision efficaces de l'obsolescence. Cette liste a ete comparee avec les criteres issus de la litterature.

    SWM (Solid Waste Management) systems have always been compatible with the societal need at every point of time. In 1950's it was oriented towards maintaining public health standards mainly to control infectious diseases. While in 1970's energy generation was considered as the vital aspect of the system. In 1990's reduction in waste generation and recycling were officially incorporated in the waste management regulation. By enacting basic law in 2000 A.D.; the society is poised to become a recycling based society in its drive towards sustainable society. The document explain the actual solid waste strategic management, and related issues, in Japan. [Italian] Nel corso della storia la gestione dei rifiuti solidi si e sempre resa compatibile con le esigenze della societa espresse in quel determinato momento. Negli anni '50 la gestione era orientata al mantenimento di determinati standard di salute pubblica, principalmente rivolti al controllo della diffusione di malattie infettive, mentre negli anni '70 la produzione di energia dai rifiuti era considerato l'aspetto prioritario per la corretta risoluzione del problema gestionale dei rifiuti. Negli anni '90 la riduzione della produzione dei rifiuti e il loro riciclaggio sono stati inseriti, come principio, nei documenti per la regolamentazione della gestione dei rifiuti solidi. Con l'approvazione di specifiche normative quadro, a partire dai primi anni del 2000, la societa si avvia ad essere una societa basata sul riciclaggio, nel suo cammino verso la sostenibilita. Nel testo si esaminano i principali aspetti strategici della gestione dei rifiuti solidi, e problematiche annesse, in Giappone.

    Full Text Available En France, la gestion de la pêche en eau douce est généralement confiée aux associations de pêcheurs qui agissent sous le contrôle de l’Etat. Le Conseil Supérieur de la Pêche a développé une méthode synthétique d’élaboration de plans de gestion piscicole qui favorisent la reproduction naturelle et le maintien des populations sauvages. Ces plans s’appuient sur des opérations de protection des habitats et de restauration du milieu dont il convient d’évaluer la rentabilité sociale. Ce qui conduit à estimer la valeur du poisson sauvage (c’est à dire né dans le milieu naturel, de parents eux-mêmes sauvages. Cette valeur intègre deux composantes principales, une valeur d’usage qui dérive de la pratique de la pêche et une valeur de non-usage qui découle de son existence même et qui intéresse une population plus vaste que celle des seuls pêcheurs. Les bénéfices potentiels engendrés par la présence de poissons sauvages sont estimés par la méthode d’évaluation contingente. Les résultats empiriques sont basés sur un échantillon de 1 629 pêcheurs qui ont participé à une enquête postale. Le Consentement A Payer (CAP pour le poisson sauvage est une fonction croissante du revenu, de la valeur du matériel et de la distance parcourue pour pêcher. De plus on note que les amateurs de brochets et de truites (espèces repères de l’étude ainsi que ceux qui pêcheraient plus souvent s’il y avait du poisson sauvage ont, toutes choses égales, par ailleurs un CAP plus élevé. La valeur moyenne du CAP varie selon le modèle retenu de 50 F à 100 F par pêcheur et par an. Ce CAP correspond à un concept de valeur totale qui inclut une composante de valeur d’usage et de valeur de non-usage. Certains pêcheurs sont prêts à payer sans pour autant marquer une préférence pour la pêche au poisson sauvage. Leur CAP est associé à une valeur de non-usage et correspond à la valeur d’existence du poisson

    Full Text Available Resumen El trabajo propone explorar las condiciones de posibilidad y los modos en que se produce un ciclo de participación política juvenil en Argentina que encuentra en los espacios político-partidarios uno de sus renovados escenarios. Luego de una profunda crisis de representación política que llevó al activismo juvenil a impugnar la política en relación con sus manifestaciones político-partidarias y estatales, los partidos políticos comenzaron a recrear espacios de militancia juvenil, al mismo tiempo que fueron receptores de nuevos activistas que entran a la política. En este proceso se destaca el peso que cobraron partidos políticos que, además, estuvieron a cargo de gestiones de gobierno a nivel nacional y subnacional. En el artículo se busca analizar qué rasgos, propiedades y características dan forma a una nueva figura de activismo entre los y las jóvenes que forman parte de estas experiencias. Más concretamente, propone analizar cómo se ingresa a la militancia, qué sentidos se construyen sobre la misma y qué relaciones se producen entre el activismo y el trabajo en el Estado en relación con dos partidos que se ocupan de gestiones de gobierno en la Provincia de Santa Fe (de la mano del Partido Socialista y en la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires (por parte de Propuesta Republicana. Se recupera la sociología francesa del activismo militante para mostrar quiénes son los y las jóvenes activistas que militan en ambos partidos, de qué modos participan dentro de los mismos, así como en las gestiones de gobierno de sus respectivos partidos, y qué significados se construyen en torno a las articulaciones y desplazamientos entre las carreras militantes y laborales de las y los activistas. El enfoque que sigue el trabajo permite pensar elementos comunes en relación con los activismos juveniles en partidos en/de gestión más allá de las diferencias político-ideológicas que los caracterizan.

Cet article a pour objectif de proposer une analyse générale dans quatre pays ayant établi des parcs nationaux de manière très précoce, souvent en opposition avec les populations locales ou autochtones. Depuis les années 1970, la participation publique est devenue une pratique commune dans la gestion des parcs nationaux, même si elle revêt des réalités très variables. Cet article analyse les tendances générales de la participation (notamment au niveau des dispositifs dans les pratiques de gestion des parcs nationaux, qui sont généralement considérées comme des réussites en termes de pratiques politiques ou de gouvernance et qui sont souvent présentées comme des modes d’élaboration de démocratie délibérative. L’analyse utilisant les différents niveaux scalaires tend à montrer au contraire que les dispositifs de participation publique peuvent aussi fragmenter les parties prenantes et rendre plus difficile la constitution efficace d’une coalition d’acteurs.Public involvement has become a key concept in conservation management worldwide. This paper intends to give an overview on four countries known to have established national parks for over a century, and often in clearing the land from previous ‘indigenous’ or local occupation. Since the seventies, public participation has become a common practice in parks’ management, even if reality does not fit always perfectly with theory. The paper analyses general trends of public participation in parks management practices, which are most often considered as a successful governance policies by most authors, and is also considered as a way to build participative democracy. The analysis using the level of scale intends to show that public participation can also fragment the stakeholders, making really difficult the emergence of any efficient coalition of

    Full Text Available ItSotto la spinta dei cambiamenti socio-economici e di significativi progressi tecnici, la gestione dei giardini storici e degli spazi verdi in genere, sta vivendo un periodo di forte cambiamento ed evoluzione. Nel tentativo di razionalizzare l’uso delle risorse naturali e umane, nascono nuovi servizi che fanno intravedere la necessità di creare specifiche figure professionali, in grado di colmare in tempi rapidi il divario tra le potenzialità applicative offerte dalle nuove tecnologie e le diverse realtà operative, ancora legate all’uso di pratiche e metodologie tradizionali. Anche nel settore dei giardini e dei parchi storici è giunto il momento di approfondire i temi relativi alla loro conservazione e valorizzazione, che oggi sono strettamente legati a una concreta sostenibilità economica e ambientale delle pratiche di gestione e di promozione. Queste considerazioni sono state alla base di una serie di iniziative e di progetti promossi a livello nazionale ed europeo, che, grazie all’integrazione di strumenti ICT, SMART-Sensors e IA, in alcuni casi si sono concretizzati nella realizzazione di metodologie e soluzioni di grande interesse operativo.Le procedure e i criteri presentati in questo articolo sono il risultato dell’attività di ricerca e trasferimento tecnologico condotta dal CNR-IBIMET di Firenze negli ultimi dieci anni.

    Full Text Available Il recente riconoscimento dello status specifico della Lepre italica (Lepus corsicanus e l?accertamento dell?areale distributivo rappresentano le azioni più importanti per la conservazione di un taxon endemico che si era creduto estinto. Nella penisola la specie presenta un areale discontinuo, il cui limite settentrionale è dato dal comune di Manciano (GR, sul versante tirrenico e da una linea che dalla provincia de L'Aquila arriva al Gargano. In Sicilia la distribuzione è relativamente continua anche in aree non protette. Dati genetici hanno permesso di confermare la presenza in Corsica. Al contrario, nell?Isola d'Elba, a seguito di estese ricerche, sono stati identificati solo esemplari di L. europaeus. Nell?Italia peninsulare L. corsicanus è spesso presente in simpatria con popolazioni di L. europaeus, mentre in Sicilia la lepre europea non ha originato popolazioni stabili, nonostante l?immissione di molte migliaia di individui. La distribuzione ecologica di L. corsicanus ed analisi ambientali specifiche, suggeriscono l?adattamento prevalente agli ambienti a clima mediterraneo, benché essa sia presente anche a quote elevate (> 1.500 m s.l.m.. Dati preliminari di abbondanza relativa hanno evidenziato una situazione diversificata tra la penisola e la Sicilia e tra aree a diverso regime di gestione; un confronto tra le aree protette ha evidenziato rispettivamente valori di 5,54 e 11,73 ind./km². La riduzione quali-quantitativa e la frammentazione dell?habitat delle lepri è un fenomeno potenzialmente pericoloso per la sopravvivenza delle popolazioni, determinando fenomeni di estinzione locale dovuti alle basse densità di popolazione, inducendo fenomeni di erosione della variabilità genetica e di riduzione della fitness degli individui. L?introduzione di L. europaeus può costituire un importante fattore limitante sia per la possibile competizione

    Full Text Available Prenant les déchets électriques et électroniques comme terrain d’observation, cette recherche étudie les fondements du commerce illégal de déchets dangereux des pays développés vers les PED. En effet, malgré la multiplication des législations, le problème des déchets dans les pays développés, loin d’être traité en amont, l’est en grande partie en aval par leur délocalisation dans les PED. Les deux lectures proposées, économique et institutionnelle, permettent de montrer comment les contraintes de coût de gestion des déchets dans les pays développés conjuguées à l’imperfection et à la non-application des législations conduisent à des comportements socialement irresponsables. À partir de là, l’implication des parties prenantes est suggérée comme solution pour éliminer ce type de comportements.Based on the analysis of the waste electrical and electronic equipments (WEEE, the research investigates the motivations for the illegal cross-border trade in hazardous wastes from developed countries to developing countries. Although many developed countries have implemented waste shipment regulations, they are passing the risks and costs of E-waste to developing countries. Indeed, E-waste is often sent for recycling and refurbishing in developing countries. The two-side proposed approach (i.e. economical and institutional suggests that both the cost for firms to comply with increasing regulations and the imperfect implementation of regulatory restrictions lead to socially irresponsible behaviours. An increasing and better involvement of stakeholders may be put forward as a solution.

À partir d’une cartographie diachronique, l’historique de ce remblaiement du réseau hydrographique est décrit, et les risques de nature morphoclimatique induits par ces profondes transformations, étudiés par ailleurs, sont brièvement évoqués. Ces zones spécifiques d’un site urbain de montagne relèvent d’un statut juridique de protection propre au réseau hydrographique en ville, lequel est profondément modifié dans la pratique après remblaiement, voire simplement oublié. Tout se passe comme si le remblaiement et l’urbanisation du réseau hydrographique faisaient l’objet d’un large consensus social, pour gagner de l’espace, donner une solution intra-urbaine à l’évacuation des déchets, et éradiquer des zones socialement incontrôlées. Les représentations sociales qui induisent une politique non explicite de gestion du site, sont analysées et discutées, au moment où les gestionnaires de la ville s’interrogent quant au bien-fondé de la poursuite du processus, alors que ce dernier se poursuit activement pour cacher la forte pollution du rio Machangara, principal émissaire du bassin.

    The paper shows the differences between the operations of an industrial undertaking and an installation for residue processing and describes the auditing system of an industry concerned with various phases of processing. It shows that the auditing programme is necessarily and intimately connected with the general organization of the entire undertaking and that it is a useful tool of economic management. In this connection, the paper deals at length with the auditing principles used in arriving at - the overall cost of the final product, - the specific cost of each processing phase,. (author) [French] Apres avoir expose les differences existant entre les operations effectuees par une entreprise industrielle et par une installation de traitement des residus, le memoire decrit la comptabilite d'une industrie comprenant plusieurs phases de traitement.

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available Les ressources forestières constituent un capital naturel pour l’approvisionnement des populations locales, en bois, en plantes aromatiques et médicinales et en parcours pour le pâturage. Ces multiples usages ont conduit ces populations à mettre en place une gestion communautaire et très ancienne de ces ressources. Depuis 2002, l’administration des Eaux et Forêts a mis en place une politique forestière basée sur une stratégie de gestion participative. Nous avons étudié les formes de gestion communautaire et par l’administration des ressources forestières dans quatre communes rurales du Parc National d’Ifrane. L’administration organise une mise en défens, fondée sur l’implication et la responsabilisation des populations usagères, organisée en associations sylvo-pastorales ou en coopératives forestières, à travers une incitation financière sous forme de compensation. Ce mécanisme a permis d’obtenir un certain nombre d’acquis : conscientisation des populations vis-à-vis de la mise en défens, investissement des sommes de la compensation dans des projets de développement local, etc. Cependant, ce mécanisme présente certaines fragilités, notamment un risque de non durabilité des mises en défens (du fait que celles-ci ne sont financées que par le budget de l’Etat et un contrôle social plus faible dans les nouvelles associations qui n’ont pas la même légitimité pour prendre des décisions au nom du collectif que les anciennes jmaa.

    2000-09-01

    Full Text Available L’organisation nationale en matière d’évaluation et de gestion des risques est en cours de modifications depuis quelques années. Organisée par une loi en 1998, la création d’agences pour la sécurité sanitaire des aliments, des produits de santé et de l’environnement a marqué une étape. D’autres domaines sont en cours de réorganisation comme la sûreté nucléaire et la radioprotection. La mise en oeuvre de la directive SEVESO II peut aussi influer sur la gestion des installations industrielles classées dites « SEVESO ». Des « événements » comme la crise de la vache folle ou celle du sang contaminé ont joué un rôle dans les évolutions, mais l’émergence de nouveaux principes de gestion des risques au sein de la communauté internationale a aussi influé fortement sur les choix faits et les discussions. Le travail présenté ici est un travail préliminaire, qui visait à identifier les grandes lignes des réponses apportées dans les différents domaines à des questions comme celles du rôle des différentes institutions en matière d’évaluation et de gestion. L’approche comparative suivie ici est trop globale pour que tous les éléments de chaque système réglementaire soit décrit et certains aspects sont simplifiés. En revanche, ce type de comparaison met en lumière des contrastes notables quant aux solutions trouvées pour articuler le travail d’évaluation des risques et les prises de décision relevant des autorités.

    Full Text Available Raffaello Sanzio intuì per primo che il mondo antico, come lo vedevano i suoi occhi, non era che l’eco sbiadita di quella ricchezza che pur doveva caratterizzarne l’esperienza artistica. Oggi la tecnologia permette di realizzare il sogno di Raffaello e di restituire le immagini delle antiche architetture, rivoluzionando la percezione del patrimonio culturale da parte del pubblico moderno. La nostra esperienza decennale nel settore della comunicazione del bene culturale ha consentito di confrontarci con diversi casi: dalla Domus Aurea, all'Ara Pacis; dai filmati divulgativi agli applicativi pensati per le postazioni fisse dei musei, fino alla creazione di software per la gestione dei dati degli scavi archeologici. Sempre ponendo al centro di ogni lavoro i cardini del nostro modo di fare ricerca: l'attenzione al linguaggio, quale strumento di comprensione estetica, e la gestione informatizzata delle fonti, come apparato di studio e metodo di validazione scientifica delle ricostruzioni.[L’impostazione del saggio è comune ai due autori. In particolare, però, Stefano Borghini ha curato il paragrafo “Considerazioni generali”, mentre Raffaele Carlani “Alcune esperienze”].

    Full Text Available Il mercato delle costruzioni in Italia soffre problemi di maturità da molto tempo. Dagli anni ’90, infatti, per superare i fatti di tangentopoli venne riformata la legislazione dei lavori pubblici per giungere a livelli di competizione maggiori e più simili a quelli esistenti in Europa.  In questo contesto le imprese che per la loro struttura culturale, organizzativa e produttiva mostravano maggiore sensibilità a tali aspetti avviarono processi di formazione e riorganizzazione introducendo specifiche procedure mirate alla gestione completa dei progetti trasformandosi così da imprese di sola produzione a imprese operanti per progetti.La presente memoria vuole descrivere il sistema di gestione attuato, le modifiche ed i miglioramenti che si sono susseguiti nel tempo,  la sua struttura organizzativa e gli strumenti di lavoro messi a disposizione.A conclusione verrà illustrata l’applicazione al caso concreto della costruzione del nuovo impianto di trattamento e recupero di rifiuti urbani.

Trois étapes structurent cette réflexion questionnant la transition supposée entre une gestion des risques naturels et une gestion durable des territoires soumis aux risques naturels : une association toute relative, un lien logique mais limité sur le terrain, une relation surtout indirecte. Les interactions identifiées, en termes législatifs mais aussi idéels et opérationnels, entre risque et durabilité se révèlent ainsi complexes et ne sont pas forcément explicites ; elles dépendent en particulier de multiples échelles territoriales (nationales à locales, confrontant alors pour l’essentiel des stratégies d’acteurs – porteurs des décisions ou du savoir technique – distinctes.

    Full Text Available This study is intended to explore a complementary relationship between instructional systems design (ISD and project management in an attempt to build a plausible case for integrating project management as a distinct course in the core of the graduate instructional systems design programs. It is argued that ISD and project management should form a symbiosis from a curriculum perspective, in a hope for the prepared instructional designers to create values for customers. An integrated view of ISD and project management is proposed, using three concepts of project management as a reasonable bridge for the integration. Challenges for the proposed view in this position paper are also stated. Cette étude explore la complémentarité de la conception de matériel pédagogique et de la gestion de projets en vue de justifier l’intégration de la gestion de projets à titre de cours distinct au cœur des programmes des cycles supérieurs en conception de matériel pédagogique.

    The cycle of life of nuclear power plant expands along seven well defined phases lasting about a century and therefore employing three successive generations. Each one of such phases is in need of specific knowledge on radiation protection matters. The nuclear moratorium introduced in Spain in 1983 suspended all those activities related to site selection, design and construction of new units and their commissioning. As it does not seem to be prudent to renounce to nuclear energy on a permanent basis, nuclear utilities, engineering and service companies, academic, research and state organizations agencies should establish programmes to recuperate the radiological knowledge and experience, among other subjects, acquired in the interrupted activities. Likewise, those responsible for the operation of nuclear power plants and the follow up activities should also establish knowledge management activities on radiation protection and other subject matters in line with the IAEA recommendations.

    Full Text Available “Natural” disasters, their prevention and their management have been raised as an object of international attention since the 1970’s. The international social world of disasters has elaborated dispositives in order to put in order the anticipated chaos generated by disasters. This ordering process notably consists in trying to match spaces, roles and identities. When a disaster strikes on a territory, inhabitants become “affected people” when they pass thro ugh the tent where there are given this status, and then “displaced people” when there are conveyed in the truck that drives them to their new places. These dispositives are elaborated on ways of thinking identities in situation of crisis strongly linked t o spatial representations. The ethnographic inquiry realized on different sites where dispositives of disaster management are put in place in Latin America shows that the coincidence between spaces, roles and identities are far from systematic and that peo ple often have the possibility to reintroduce a certain level of critique, taking their distance with the roles they were attributed and discussing the geography of order. The paper focuses on these moments when this critique is formulated, during disaster simulation exercises or real disasters.

    Introduction La qualité des vaccins conditionne les résultats attendus de la vaccination. Elle est tributaire de l'efficacité de système de gestion technique et logistique mis en place. Cette étude est menée pour évaluer l'efficacité de la gestion des vaccins et d'en tirer des leçons. Méthodes Une étude rétrospective est menée pendant la période de 2010 à 2014 sur la gestion logistique de vaccins au niveau de l'antenne PEV Kisangani. La revue documentaire complétée par les entretiens semi-dirigés des gestionnaires et prestataires de services de vaccination ont permis d'évaluer la gestion de vaccins en se servant des modèle GEV de l'OMS, en vue de dégager les écarts. Résultats Il est observé une faible connaissance des prestataires sur les vaccins qui ne peuvent pas être congelés, sur les tests de congélation et d'autres dommages de vaccins. La gestion informatisée des données au niveau de l'antenne est correctement assurée. Aucun critère évalué n'a atteint l'objectif de 80%. Le respect de la température de stockage est de 70% au niveau de l'antenne ; le critère relatif à la gestion de vaccins est respectivement de 65% et 67% au niveau du BCZ et CS. Le critère relatif à la maintenance est nul à tous les niveaux.

    Full Text Available L’approche de gestion écosystémique a été adoptée par le Ministère de l’Agriculture et de la Pêche Maritime dans le cadre du Programme d’appui à la politique sectorielle agricole (PAPSA financé par l’Union Européenne. Cette approche a pour objectif l’intégration de la dimension environnementale dans la planification et la programmation des projets de développement agricoles. Les Plans de gestion écosystémique élaborés à cet effet constituent des outils pour la concrétisation d’un développement durable des filières retenues par le programme PAPSA. L’article présente la démarche générale et son application dans le cas de la filière du palmier dattier à Bouanane. L’analyse détaillée de la démarche déployée et des résultats obtenus révèle la nécessité de faire évoluer cette approche pour tendre vers une collaboration accrue, d’une part entre les institutions du Ministère de l’Agriculture et d’autre part entre le Ministère de l’Agriculture, les autres départements ministériels et les bailleurs de fonds.

    Full Text Available En Afrique du Nord, de nombreux aquifères sont surexploités, principalement du fait d’une agriculture irriguée intensive. Cependant, les politiques publiques qui ont cherché à réguler cet usage se sont montrées jusqu’à maintenant peu efficaces, du fait du manque de moyens et parce que les agriculteurs les considèrent comme peu légitimes. L’article analyse un cas de gestion collective de l’usage des eaux souterraines par les agriculteurs eux-mêmes, dans le cadre d’une association au Sud de la Tunisie. Dans la zone de Bsissi Oued El Akarit, l’administration multipliait dans les années 1990 les procédures de contrôle des puits, conduisant à de nombreux conflits. En 1999, les agriculteurs et l’administration se sont mis d’accord pour qu’un groupement de développement agricole soit créé spécifiquement pour contrôler les puits et forages dans cette zone. Depuis, le groupement a effectivement réussi à mettre en oeuvre un tel contrôle, mais reste toujours fragile financièrement car il ne s’auto-finance pas. Le processus de concertation qui a conduit à ce dispositif de gestion a réussi grâce à : i la posture de l’administration, à la fois ferme en matière d’application des lois en vigueurs, et ouverte à la concertation avec les agriculteurs, et ii aux compétences et à la légitimité des leaders du groupement. Cette expérience montre que, dans certains cas, les agriculteurs peuvent devenir partie prenante d’une cogestion des eaux souterraines pour un usage durable de cette ressource.

    Refuelling the 10 to 15 MW pool type reactor considered here will occur frequently (some 10 elements every 3 to 4 weeks). It is therefore necessary to determine the most economic fuel policy. This study proposes to define a strategy that will make it possible to decide on the number and characteristics of the shipment containers, as well as on the means of storage, so as to reduce the risks as much as possible should the basic parameters of the study vary. Among these parameters, the respective influence of which is investigated, chemical reprocessing costs play a vital part. Two examples of optimum fuel management are given according to whether the reprocessing charges applied are those of the old or of the 1961 U.S. AEC base charges for reprocessing highly enriched irradiated fuel. (authors) [French] Les renouvellements du combustible de la pile piscine de 10 a 15 MW consideree ici, seront frequents (quelques 10 elements toutes les 3 ou 4 semaines). Il est donc important de connaitre les meilleures conditions de gestion economique de ce combustible. Cette etude se propose de definir une strategie permettant de choisir le nombre et les caracteristiques des containers de transport, ainsi que les moyens de stockage, de facon a minimiser les risques si les parametres de base de l'etude varient. Parmi ces parametres dont l'influence respective est successivement examinee, le cout du traitement chimique joue un role fondamental. Deux exemples d'optimum de gestion sont donnes selon que le tarif de retraitement est conforme a l'ancien tarif de l'U.S. AEC ou au tarif 1961 de traitement des combustibles irradies tres enrichis.

    Since the responsibility for risk management depends more and more on regional factors, evaluation methods and management regulations are not developed enough. This study start from the fact that an important methods exist for evaluation transport of dangerous materials in cities, risk analysis and emergency plans related to classified installations, management of quality of water, 'chronic' industrial risks at local and regional level, probabilistic estimation for industrial plants. The objective is in fact to show what risk analysis could bring to the municipality, the city or the region. [French] Alors que la responsabilite de la maitrise du risque repose de plus en plus sur les collectivites territoriales, soit dans la mouvance naturelle de la decentralisation, soit par des textes specifiques, les moyens d'evaluation et les regles de gestion sont encore tres peu developpes. Cette etude part du fait qu'un materiel important existe cependant: evaluations sur le transport des matieres dangereuses dans les villes, etudes de danger et plans d'intervention associes a la legislation sur les installations classees, gestion de la qualite de l'eau par les agences de bassin, bilans des risques industriels 'chroniques' a l'echelle locale ou regionale, evaluations probabilistes sur des objets industriels. L'objet est donc de montrer ce que peuvent apporter ces analyses dans l'evaluation du risque accidentel dans la collectivite, la ville ou, a cause des implications des strategies de prevention, le departement ou la region. L'heterogeneite de la qualite et de la quantite des resultats que l'on peut attendre en fonction des divers types de risques et de consequences est d'abord mise en valeur. Malgre leurs incertitudes, des modeles existent qui permettent de calculer les victimes d'accidents industriels 'types'. Pour les installations classees et les transports de matieres dangereuses, le calcul du risque est loin d'etre systematique, mais il est pratique. Un second domaine

    This work presents a synthesis of three points: the environment, energy and man. The consideration of these aspects allows us to confront the unequal distribution of energy resources, the constraints and political influences which determine the exploitation of these energy resources, and the concentration of the consumption of energy by one fifth of the world`s population and the perspective of future growth of energy use by the remaining four-fifths. It is understanding of the importance and the benefits of reducing energy requirements, combined with the environmental perspectives, that forms the core of the Integrated Resource Planning of Least is proposed. This framework will utilize the knowledge of the engineer for developing a system to aid with decision making and the management of information, and particularly with the notions henceforth referred to as `Demand-Site Management` as applied to the electrical grid. The model of such a Management Information System which demonstrates these theoretical advances is called SIADEME (Systeme Interactif d`Aide a la Decision et de Gestion des Actions de Maitrise de la Demande d`energie). This includes some examples for the management of electricity demand for both the lighting and refrigeration cases in large (> 2500 m{sup 2}) supermarkets for the French environmental and energy management agency (Ademe).

    Development of a low-level radioactive waste land disposal facility is little different than any industrial development of similar scope. Consideration must be made for normal business and operations management, security, facility maintenance, traffic control and necessary amenities for personnel. The item specific to the low-level waste site is the handling of radioactive waste materials and the regulatory and environmental protection procedures that must be planned for and accomodated in the site design and development. Each of these elements and the facility as a whole must be designed to be compatible with local land use plans, available transportation and support services, and the social and economic goals of the local community. Plans should also be made for quality control and orderly construction. This chapter deals with those aspects of the facility, its design and construction which are integral parts to the overall performance of the site

    Introduction Les antivitamines K (AVK), traitement anticoagulant oral le plus largement prescrit, posent un réel problème de santé publique du fait de leur risque iatrogène. L'objectif de cette étude était de préciser le niveau de connaissance des patients sur la gestion de leur traitement par les AVK. Méthodes Il s'est agi d'une enquête transversale descriptive réalisée au CHU-Yalgado Ouédraogo, sur une période de 03 mois : du 1er mars au 31 mai 2012. Un questionnaire a été administré aux patients bénéficiant d'un traitement AVK depuis au moins un mois. Résultats Soixante-dix patients ont été inclus dans l'étude dont 30 hommes. L'âge moyen était de 49 ans ± 16 ans. Les cardiopathies et la maladie thromboembolique veineuse justifiant l'institution du traitement AVK étaient retrouvées respectivement dans 58,6% et 41,4% des cas. Le nom de l'AVK et la raison exacte du traitement étaient connus respectivement dans 91,4% et 67,1% des cas. Plus de la moitié des patients (68,6%) savaient que les AVK rendaient le sang plus fluide. Quarante-six patients (65,7%) citaient l'INR comme examen biologique de surveillance du traitement et seulement 28 patients (40%) connaissaient les valeurs cibles. La majorité des patients ne connaissait pas les risques encourus en cas de surdosage (72,8%) et de sous-dosage (71,4%). Une automédication par anti-inflammatoire non stéroïdien était signalée par 18 patients (25,7%). Les choux (74,3%) et la laitue (62,9%), aliments à consommer avec modération, étaient les plus cités. Conclusion Les connaissances des patients sur la gestion des AVK étaient fragmentaires et insuffisantes pour assurer la sécurité et l'efficacité du traitement. La création d'un programme d'éducation thérapeutique sur les AVK s'avère alors nécessaire. PMID:25870741

Nous proposons ici de recourir au cadre d’analyse des proximités afin de formuler une évaluation sociologique du dispositif de gestion concertée de l’eau que constitue la GV. À partir d’entretiens auprès des acteurs de l’eau (irrigants, pêcheurs, riverains, acteurs du tourisme…, nous montrons que si la GV instaure une nouvelle proximité autour de règles d’organisation, celle-ci demeure asymétrique (privilégiant une proximité sectorielle autour de l’irrigation, instrumentale (absence d’un projet partagé de développement territorial, et enfin partielle au sens où n’est pas prise en compte la diversité des interdépendances de proximité autour de l’eau.Since the 90’s in the French region watered by the river Charente water resources have been weighed down with irrigation. In order to reduce conflicts which are linked to this situation, «Volumetric Management » introduces some new rules for irrigation practices including consultation. We propose to make a sociological assessment of the Volumetric Management basing on the notion of proximity with its different meanings. Several interviews with water users (farmers which use or don’t use water, fishers, residents, actors responsible for tourism… show that a new proximity due the share of organisation rules has been developed, but that this proximity is: asymmetric because it privileges links between partisans of irrigation; instrumental because it lacks a commune long-term vision of territorial development; at last partial because the different interdependencies induced by the same water resource are not considered.

Le premier élément est le modèle d'affaire mis de l'avant par l'institution avec l'arrivée d'un nouveau PDG en 2002 qui repose sur une nouvelle interprétation du mandat de l'institution et de sa responsabilité sociétale. Le second élément est la réforme de l'organisation interne de la Caisse avec l'adoption d'un modèle organisationnel de conglomérat financier basé sur l'utilisation indirecte des produits dérivés ou indirect à travers des produits structurés. Cette étude de cas permet également d’analyser les transformations récentes des modes de gouvernance dans les institutions financières.This article proposes an analysis of the financialization of public pension’s asset managers through the case study of the most important one in Canada. The 2008 fallout is the result of structural changes in the regulation and management of the organization. Two elements are here at the core of financialization. First, the new business model was built on a different analysis of the mission of the institution. Second, the creation of "value added" was expected by the use of interactions between portfolios, facilitated by the development of derivatives and structured financial products. This case study is also interesting to analyze the transformation of the governance structure in the financial sector.

  4. Un approccio “multi-scala” per la gestione del patrimonio culturale italiano / A “multi-scale” approach for the management of Italian cultural heritage

    2011-11-01

    Questo articolo intende dunque svolgere una riflessione critica sulla opportunità di indirizzarsi verso una gestione di tipo “multi-scala”, che comprenda sia un livello organizzativo “micro” sia un livello organizzativo “meso”. L'effettiva capacità di funzionamento del modello “multi-scala” deriverà dalla capacità di rendere armonici e sinergici tra di loro tali due livelli organizzativi. Today, the management model adopted for Italian cultural organizations and Italian cultural heritage derives from the new public management theory, that has been designed, crafted and firstly implemented in Anglophone countries. Instead, the management model should be consistent with the features of the cultural heritage of the specific country. In the Italian case, that is a widespread cultural heritage, strongly linked with the history of the territory. Hence, this article aims at analyzing the opportunity of developing a “multi-scale” management approach, able to combine the traditional “micro” organizational perspective, with a “meso” organizational perspective.

    In Mochovce site the construction of four units of WWER 440 NPP with V-213 type of reactor is being carried out. The financing of Mochovce units completion was resolved in April 1996. The completion work commenced at the construction site under leadership of SKODA Prague, the general supplier. The completion work on building part and tests of constructional electric distributions and lightning constructors started. The revisions in technological part were finished, and final protocols from revisions are the basis for starting of completion work. The assembly of transport container anchorage,ventilation system in hermetic areas and hermetic coverage of pools for stored spent nuclear fuel is being carried out. The pre-completion tests of instrumentation and control of ventilation systems, individual dosimetric control in medical station, and tests of nuclear programme according to commissioning and assembling work schedule at the equipment for physical protection of the NPP area started. Inspection activities at Mochovce were performed in accordance with inspection plan for 1996. Evaluation of routine inspections was performed by means of quarterly protocols. Main findings from the inspections performed in Mochovce were in the following areas: (a) deficiencies in the knowledge of the respective regulation and conditions from the Resolution of the state regulatory body, concerning selected employees; (b) training of the selected employees; (c) aim of the measures imposes by inspectors is to eliminate deficiencies in preparation of programmes for pre-completion and completion testing. NRA SR assessment activities at Mochovce NPP were focused mainly on approving and inspecting of design modification to approving programmes for pre-completion and completion testing of system s and equipment and on approving quality assurance programmes. The suggestions of international missions, which reviewed Mochovce safety in the years, were taken into consideration in the programme

    2007-06-15

    The LHC (large hadron collider) is a huge 27 km long particle accelerator that is being installed 100 meter deep underground near Geneva. This machine requires a sophisticated and complex safety system in charge of the security of staff, infrastructure and equipment. The main features of this system is to be completely redundant by itself and be flexible enough to incorporate new parameters from modification of the accelerating system or from new equipment. The redundancy has been thoroughly studied, for instance a cable can be made of copper threads while the other is an optic fiber which add more safety by being able to cope better with the diversity of accidental situations. The LHC site has been divided into 33 security areas and 4 levels of emergency have been set: level 0 is the conveyance of pure information, level 1 is the conveyance of more important information that requires the intervention of an operator within the day, level 2 requires the intervention of an operator immediately, and level 3 is the emergency level for the intervention of the fire brigade. This safety system is in charge of 300000 parameters from a large variety of sensors and manages 17000 alarms. (A.C.)

    Full Text Available Le tourisme est souvent présenté comme l’un des instruments d’un développement durable, même s’il connaît une expansion difficilement maîtrisable, au détriment du patrimoine environnemental, insulaire et littoral en particulier, comme dans les DOM-TOM.Le tourisme a des impacts, culturels et sociaux notamment, sur l’environnement. Les ressources du patrimoine alimentent de leur côté la demande et l’offre touristiques. Un tourisme assis sur une gestion ad hoc des ressources du patrimoine constitue un facteur puissant de durabilité du développement local. La soumission de l’activité touristique aux exigences de protection, de conservation et de gestion reproductible de la biodiversité et du patrimoine naturel, dans les aires protégées de la Caraïbe française en particulier, génère des approches, des stratégies et des comportements nouveaux. La démarche écotouristique appelle une gestion participative et intégrée des ressources et des espaces, et constitue un défi pour les opérateurs du tourisme comme pour les acteurs de l’environnement, et une opportunité de "réappropriation" de leur milieu de vie par les populations locales. Il faut alors en clarifier le concept et les implications ; puis en analyser les objectifs et les enjeux dans une perspective de développement durable.Tourism often appears as one a tool for a sustainable development, even if it is not easy to control, in the détriment of island and costal environment heritage, as in French overseas regions. Besides the cultural and social impacts of tourism upon environment, the heritage resources nuture the touristic request and offer. If based on an appropriate management of those resources, it may be a strong incentive for local sustainable development. The respect of protection, conservation and sustainable management of biodiversity and natural resources by tourism, especially in the overseas regions of French West Indies, produces new

    Full Text Available La question de la rencontre entre dispositifs de gestion importés et configurations socio-historiques est ici examinée dans le cas des centres d’appels brésiliens. L’article rappelle, tout d’abord, que ces dispositifs, généralement importés des États-Unis, prétendent accroître la compétitivité des entreprises, en s’appuyant sur des critères réputés universels.Cependant, au Brésil, les modèles de gestion mondialisés sont mis en œuvre par les directions qui se saisissent de leurs potentialités pour intensifier le processus de domination dans les relations capital-travail. En effet, les formes de gestion sont renouvelées pour essayer d’obtenir des téléopérateurs l’intériorisation partielle des normes de travail, en rendant opérationnel le contrôle gestionnaire ancré dans la technologie. L’article suggère que le système de management « au corps à corps » s’appuye également sur la fragilité des salariées, prises dans les effets conjugués d’un fort taux de chômage et des rapports sociaux de genre.The question of the encounter between imported management arrangements and socio-historical configurations is examined in the case of Brazilian call centres. The article first of all recalls that these arrangements, generally imported from the United States, claim to increase the companies’ competitiveness, in basing themselves on criteria deemed universal.Yet, in Brazil, the globalized management models are put to work by directors wanting to grasp their potentials for intensifying their domination processes in capital-labour relationships. In effect, these management forms have been renewed to try and instill in tele-operators a partisan interiorization of work standards, by applying an adminstrative and management control anchored in technology. The article suggests that this “hand to hand” system of management also has an effect on the fragility level of salaried workers, caught up in the

    Full Text Available Les premiers travaux de restauration programmés dans le cadre du Plan Directeur de la Muraille d’Ibiza récupèrent certains des éléments les plus importants de cet ensemble déclaré Patrimoine Mondial en 1999, suivant les critères du Plan dont l’objectif était de documenter, préserver et réhabiliter le tracé de la Renaissance. Les interventions initiales ont consisté à réhabiliter les casemates et les espaces intérieurs des bastions, à consolider les parapets de la muraille en respectant les différents types existants et à restaurer les deux portes de la Renaissance. De plus, au Portal Nou, on a retiré le revêtement du XIXe siècle, mettant ainsi au jour l’agencement d’origine et les dimensions de l’arc Renaissance projeté par J.B. Calvi en 1554.The earliest restoration work carried out the Ibiza city wall, under the terms of an overall restoration plan, saved some of the most important elements of this ensemble, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999. The objectives of the restoration plan were to document, preserve and rehabilitate the Renaissance vestiges. The first steps involved the rehabilitation of the bunkers and the interior spaces of the bastions, the reinforcement of the wall's parapets, all respecting the different types to be found, and the restoration of two Renaissance gates. At the Portal Nou, the nineteenth-century rendering was removed to reveal the original surfaces and the dimensions of the Renaissance arch designed by J. B. Calvi in 1554.

    Full Text Available Le discours sur la « gestion intégrée des zones côtières » (GIZC est devenu aujourd'hui incontournable pour les politiques de gestion du littoral. A travers une mise en perspective de l'approche GIZC autour de l'évolution de la pensée écologiste depuis les années 1970, ce papier invite à porter un regard différent sur son émergence politique. Après avoir montré quels sont les mécanismes généralement retenus par la littérature pour dépeindre le processus de politisation de ce discours, il souligne l'importance de tenir compte du cadre cognitif général dans lequel il s'insère. Ainsi, la politisation de l'approche GIZC s'explique en partie par la reconnaissance sociale du développement durable, laquelle rompt avec l'écologisme critique dominant des années 1970.Nowadays, the discourse on “integrated coastal zone management” (ICZM is essential in coastal management policies. Through a comprehension of the evolution of the environmental discourse since the 1970s, this paper offers a fresh perspective to understand the politicization of the ICZM approach. After showing what mechanisms are generally put forward in the literature to depict this politicization, it emphasizes the importance considering its overall cognitive framework. Thus, politicization of ICZM discourse is partly linked with the social recognition of sustainable development thought, which breaks with the dominant critical environmentalism of the 1970s.

    2009-01-01

    In conjunction with RCRA site corrective action at an active wood preserving facility, a risk-based site closure strategy was developed and incorporated the performance of a dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) source recovery remedy, a monitored natural attenuation (MNA) remedy for dissolved phase groundwater, and institutional controls. Innovative creosote DNAPL source recovery has been undertaken at the Site since 1998. Pooled creosote DNAPL is present 90 feet below ground within a transmissive sand and gravel aquifer with a saturated thickness of approximately 80 feet. The creosote DNAPL source is situated on the property boundary of the site and has generated a 1/2 mile off-site dissolved phase plume, creating significant NAPL management and remedial technology verification issues. To date, over 120,000 gallons of creosote DNAPL have been recovered from the subsurface utilizing a modified circulation well technology. A mass discharge flux protocol was developed to serve as a major performance metrics for the continuation of source removal efforts and to support the application of monitored natural attenuation as an associated remedial technology for groundwater. The mass removal success has supported the MNA remedy for dissolved phase groundwater and the associated development of institutional controls. The enacted site management strategy outlines the current and future risk management activities for the Site and represents an appropriate site closure strategy for the Site. (authors)

    The programme for the siting of a deep repository for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel was started already in 1983 and is carried out today by Posiva Oy which continues the work started by Teollisuuden Voima Oy. The programme aims at site selection by the end of the year 2000. The programme has progressed in successive interim stages with defined goals. After an early phase for site identification, five sites were selected in 1987 for preliminary site characterisation. Three of these were selected and judged to be best suited for the more detailed characterisation in 1992. An additional new site was included into the programme based on a separate feasibility study in the beginning of 1997. Since the year 1983 several safety assessments together with technical plans of the facility have been completed. When approaching the site selection the needs for more detailed consideration of the site specific properties in the safety assessment have been increased. The Finnish regulator STUK has published a proposal for general safety requirements for the final disposal of spent nuclear fuel in Finland. This set of requirements has been projected to be used in conjunction of the decision making by the end 2000. Based on the site evaluation all sites can provide a stable environment and there is evidence that the requirements for the longevity of the canister can be fulfilled at each site. In this manner the four candidate sites do not differ too much from each other. The main difference between the sites is in the salinity of the deep groundwater. The significance of differences in the salinity for the long-term safety cannot be defined yet. The differences may contribute to the discussion of the longevity of the bentonite buffer and also to the modelling of the groundwater flow and transport. The use of the geosphere as a transport barrier is basically culminated on the questions about sparse but fast flow routes and 'how bad channeling can be'. To answer these questions

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available Avec la fin de l’extraction et la vente des cités minières, les affaissements miniers, de risques liés au travail se sont transformés en risques environnementaux. Les dégâts miniers étaient traités jusque-là en interne par les exploitants, et ils sont donc devenus une affaire des services de l’Etat lors de la remise des concessions minières. Ce transfert a été particulièrement vif dans le bassin ferrifère lorrain, aux couches peu profondes et donc plus propice que d’autres aux phénomènes d’affaissement. Les réactions locales à ces effondrements ont été d’autant plus virulentes qu’elles touchaient un territoire en crise. Les services de l’Etat ont avant tout cherché à apporter des réponses techniques et sectorielles pour prévenir les risques. Or les affaissements ont fait bouger bien plus que les maisons. Ils ont mis en mouvement des acteurs locaux issus d’une histoire politique, économique et sociale née des mines et de la sidérurgie et meurtries par la désindustrialisation. Au final, c’est précisément parce qu’il y avait un contexte territorial spécifique, avec la mobilisation de forces sociales encore chargées d’une histoire toute proche, qu’une dimension politique s’est imposée dans la gestion et le traitement de ces risques.With the end of mining activity and the sale of miners’ dwellings, the question of subsidence, hitherto an industrial hazard, became an environmental risk. The damage caused by mining, an issue previously addressed privately by the owners, became the responsibility of government services when mining concessions were handed over to the State. The handover was particularly delicate in the iron-ore basin of Lorraine, where the closeness of the ore to the surface made this area more liable to subsidence than others. Local reactions to the phenomenon were all the more heated as the territory was already in the throes of an economic crisis. The solutions sought by

    Full Text Available Le « Mumbai Urban Transport Project » (MUTP est le premier grand projet d’infrastructures urbaines à Mumbai qui s’accompagne d’une politique de relogement et de réhabilitation. En effet, ce projet de transport, largement financé par la Banque mondiale, nécessite la démolition de bidonvilles dans la banlieue de cette grande métropole et le déplacement des habitants. La Banque mondiale impose un certain nombre de conditionnalités au gouvernement du Maharashtra dans la mise en œuvre du programme de relogement : le cahier des charges doit respecter la politique de « déplacement involontaire » du bailleur international et des ONG doivent s’inscrire dans le cadre institutionnel et opérationnel du programme. Ces nouveaux partenaires dans la gouvernance urbaine doivent relever autant de défis de gestion, coordination et suivi dans les opérations de relogement que de responsabilités envers les familles affectées par le projet MUTP. L’accession à la propriété est considérée par la Banque mondiale et les autorités publiques comme une alternative inédite de réinsertion des familles et un moyen de minimiser les conséquences et les risques d’appauvrissement liés aux mobilités contraintes. Pour aborder la question du relogement, cet article met en avant une approche qualitative visant à comprendre le rôle ambigu des ONG et la diversité des logiques et des stratégies d’adaptation ou de résistance des familles par rapport à l’option de relogement. Il apparaît au final que les ONG se préoccupent davantage de répondre aux exigences de la Banque mondiale que d’accompagner les familles dans une transition vers une nouvelle forme d’habitat et d’un nouveau cadre de vie.The "Mumbai Urban Transport Project" (MUTP is the first large-scale urban infrastructure project in Mumbai to be accompanied by a resettlement and rehabilitation policy.

Attraverso lo studio delle politiche di tutela, delle esperienze amministrative e della prassi di governo del patrimonio storico, dal primo dopoguerra agli anni Settanta, si può cercare di comprendere quali sono i presupposti che hanno portato a collocare il tema della tutela entro quella nuova cultura della città, sorta in ambito al dibattito urbanistico nazionale e che ha assunto il tema specialistico della tutela come campo di sperimentazione per la ridefinizione delle più ampie strategie di amministrazione della città, con progetti finalizzati alla conservazione del tessuto urbano storico nella sua globalità. Con il Piano per il centro storico di Bologna del 1969 e il successivo Peep del 1973, nonché con le vicende amministrative che ne hanno accompagnato l’attuazione e la gestione per più di venti anni, il centro storico diventa al contempo un campo di sperimentazione di politiche urbanistiche, politiche sociali e politiche di tutela del patrimonio storico. Nel mirare ad una tutela multidimensionale dei tessuti storici, i programmi elaborati dalle pubbliche amministrazioni hanno comportato la necessità di spostare il fuoco del progetto urbanistico per i tessuti storici verso una difficile integrazione tra istanze di conservazione dell’ambiente costruito, dei suoi manufatti e dello spazio collettivo, ed esigenze di governo complessivo delle dinamiche di trasformazione ed uso della città.

    The process of planning and management control is a very important process which has the aim to establish the business goals and fix the way to achieve them. Before introducing briefly the subject of this work, some considerations are needed. The present context is characterized by new technologies which perturb the production field; by new markets which evolve in a very short time; by a global competition. As a consequence of this, the planning and management control process have to support the decision maker and supply him with strategical (not only book-keeping) information. In addition to the non-State sector, the State run organizations (first of all the ENEA, the subject of this degree dissertation) have also perceived, in the last few years, the need to improve themselves and conform their management control system to the new exigencies. But this is not only a need; this is an imposition. In fact, in this matter, many laws have been issued since 1990. They impose a reform both of the financial and management control, and a re-engineering of the cost accounting system. This degree thesis, made in collaboration between ENEA and University of Bari, is divided in two parts. The first concerns a theoretical treatise on the subject; it shows the problems found out in the planning and management control system of the non-State firms and suggests some solutions. In the second part there is a practical treatise where the new planning and management control techniques are applied to ENEA context, arriving to the revision of the balance scheme, according to the law 84/97.

    Introduction La présence des déchets ménagers dans les voies publiques a une influence sur l’hygiène de l’environnement, ils entrainent l’insalubrité et peuvent être facteurs des certaines maladies dont quelques-unes peuvent être épidémiques. Au cours des deux dernières décennies, la question de la gestion des déchets est devenue de plus en plus complexe autant pour les pays développés que ceux sous-développés. L’objectif de cette étude était de déterminer les types de déchets et le mode de gestion des déchets génère par les ménages. Méthodes Cette étude est descriptive transversale, réalisée dans l’aire de sante Bulaska, Kasaï oriental, c’est une approche prospective appuyée par l’interview et l’observation active. Le questionnaire a été adressé au responsable du ménage ou au délègue, du 21 au 25 juin 2010, sur 170 ménages ce qui constituent un échantillon de convenance. Résultats Cette étude a révélé ce qui suit: 94,7% des enquêtes qui avaient répondu a notre questionnaire étaient de sexe féminin; 47% des enquêtes avaient un niveau d’étude primaire; 41,1% des enquêtes étaient des ménagères; la taille médiane de ménage était de 7 personnes par ménage; dans 83,5% des cas les déchets génères étaient solides; 50% des ménages de l’aire de sante utilisent la voie publique comme poubelle. Conclusion Eu égard au résultat de cette étude, développer plus les programmes de sensibilisation sur l’assainissement de l’environnement s’avère nécessaire. PMID:27800105

Nous avons tenté d’évaluer la pertinence de la généralisation de ce projet d’envergure à l’aune des caractéristiques propres au pastoralisme, dorénavant reconnu comme la meilleure forme de mise en valeur dans l’environnement incertain du Ferlo. Même si les unités pastorales de gestion des ressources ont prouvé leur intérêt dans plusieurs cas de la première phase du projet en zone pastorale, il semble que dans le contexte sénégalais actuel de politique sectorielle agricole, et d’accaparement privé des ressources foncières, la généralisation systématique du schéma des UP sur tout le territoire risquerait plutôt de menacer la durabilité de la mobilité pastorale.In Ferlo (Senegalese Sahel, the sustainability of the livestock farming depends on the diversity and the flexibility of the regulations of mobility.

Dans le contexte des mutations en cours, face aux risques de déficits en eau et à la nécessité d'un développement économique et social équilibré, ces caractéristiques, parmi d'autres, font de la Jeffara tunisienne un cas d'étude exemplaire des difficultés que pose la gestion intégrée de l'eau. Celle-ci doit prendre en compte les différentes sources d'approvisionnement ainsi que les différents usages associés, et donc l'identification des territoires pertinents pour cette  gestion, compte tenu des relations amont-aval naturelles et artificielles d'une part, et des cohérences institutionnelles et sociales d'autre part.The current situation of the water resources and their uses in South-Eastern Tunisia presents stakes which are common to many areas of the Mediterranean basin : limited and already largely exploited resources to address the growth of the needs, the increasing use of so-called non conventional resources, a competition between sectoral uses of water, an increasing merchandising of the resources, and constraining climatic conditions which reinforce the tensions around water. In the context of the changes in progress, facing the hazard of water deficits and with the need for a balanced economic and social development, these characteristics, among others, make Tunisian Jeffara be an exemplary case of study of the difficulties raised by the integrated water resources management.

Des milieux forestiers uniques et d’une grande richesse patrimoniale recouvrent encore les deux tiers de ce territoire : la forêt pluviale de basse altitude, la forêt littorale, et la mangrove. Malgré la dégradation et la fragmentation progressive de ces milieux, principalement dues aux activités anthropiques, les inventaires faunistiques réalisés (lémuriens, avifaune et herpétofaune témoignent d’habitats riches et diversifiés, dont une grande partie est encore préservée du fait de son isolement. Les forêts de Manompana représentent aussi une ressource essentielle pour les communautés rurales qui y vivent, celles-ci entretenant des liens étroits avec leurs terroirs. Une analyse des différents modes d’exploitation de la forêt montre que, mis à part les cas de la chasse et du braconnage, la plupart des prélèvements forestiers coutumiers ne sont pas problématiques pour la pérennité des milieux naturels. En revanche, l’exploitation commerciale des ressources forestières, concernant principalement les essences de bois précieux, se révèle être un des moteurs principaux de la déforestation. Afin d’impliquer davantage la population locale à la gestion durable de leurs ressources forestières, un "comité villageois consultatif" a été créé. Une exposition a aussi été réalisée avec les jeunes générations afin de les sensibiliser à la préservation de leur environnement. Des activités économiques alternatives à l’exploitation irraisonnée de la forêt ont été initiées dans les domaines de l’agriculture durable, l’éco-tourisme et la valorisation des produits forestiers. Le but de ces activités est de rendre possible la mise en place d’une gestion forestière durable et raisonnée, au service de la

    It is of special importance, especially from the nuclear safety viewpoint, to select suitable sites for different nuclear structures with the considered future activities. Site selection sometimes involves high costs not necessarily for merely selecting of site but for some preliminary measures to be taken so as the site may have the necessary characteristics. The more suitable the natural characteristics of the site for the considered project, the more successful and efficient the project, the lower the project costs and the longer the project operation period. If so, the project will cause the growth of public culture and sustainable socioeconomic development. This paper is the result of the conclusion of numerous massive reports of this activity in the preliminary phase based on theories, practices and the related safety principles on this ground as well as the application of data and information of the past and a glance to the future. The conception of need for a site for medium structures and nuclear research projects and how to perform this process are presented step by step here with a scientific approach to its selection during the investigations. In this study, it is practically described how the site is selected, by determining and defining the characteristics of research and nuclear projects with medium structures and also its fitting to the optimum site. The discovered sites typically involve the best advantages in technical and economic aspects and no particular contrast with the concerned structures

  6. SITE-94. Mineralogy of the Aespoe site

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Andersson, Karin

    1996-12-01

    The water composition has several impacts on the repository. It will influence the behaviour of the engineered materials (e.g. corrosion). It may also determine the possible solubility and speciation of released radionuclides. It also acts as a transport medium for the released elements. The groundwater composition and the potential development of the composition due to the presence of the repository as well as due to external variations is thus an important issue in a safety analysis. The development of the groundwater composition is strongly dependent on reactions with the minerals present in water bearing fractures. Here equilibrium chemistry may be of importance, but also reaction kinetics is important to the long-term behaviour. Within the SITE-94 project, a safety analysis is performed for the conditions at the Aespoe site. The mineralogy of the area has been evaluated from drill cores at various places at the site. In this report a recommendation for selection of mineralogy to be used in geochemical modelling of the repository is given. Calcite and iron containing minerals dominate the fracture filling mineralogy at the Aespoe site. Some typical fracture filling mineralogies may be identified in the fractures: epidote, chlorite, calcite, hematite, some illite/smectite + quartz, fluorite, pyrite and goethite. In addition to these a number of minor minerals are found in the fractures. Uncertainties in the fracture filling data may be due to problems when taking out the drill cores. Drilling water may remove important clay minerals and sealed fractures may be reopened mechanically and treated as water conducting fractures. The problem of determining the variability of the mineralogy along the flow paths also remains. This problem will never be solved when the investigation is performed by drilling investigation holes

    1996-08-01

    This report is a summary of environmental information gathered during a review of the documents pertaining to Project Rulison and interviews with personnel who worked on the project. Project Rulison was part of Operation Plowshare (a program designed to explore peaceful uses for nuclear devices). The project consisted of detonating a 43-kiloton nuclear device on September 10, 1969, in western Colorado to stimulate natural gas production. Following the detonation, a reentry well was drilled and several gas production tests were conducted. The reentry well was shut-in after the last gas production test and was held in standby condition until the general cleanup was undertaken in 1972. A final cleanup was conducted after the emplacement and testing wells were plugged in 1976. However, some surface radiologic contamination resulted from decontamination of the drilling equipment and fallout from the gas flaring during drilling operations. With the exception of the drilling effluent pond, all surface contamination at the Rulison Site was removed during the cleanup operations. All mudpits and other excavations were backfilled, and both upper and lower drilling pads were leveled and dressed. This report provides information regarding known or suspected areas of contamination, previous cleanup activities, analytical results, a review of the regulatory status, the site`s physical environment, and future recommendations for Project Ruhson. Based on this research, several potential areas of contamination have been identified. These include the drilling effluent pond and mudpits used during drilling operations. In addition, contamination could migrate in the gas horizon.

  10. The site selection process

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Kittel, J.H.

    1989-01-01

    One of the most arduous tasks associated with the management of radioactive wastes is the siting of new disposal facilities. Experience has shown that the performance of the disposal facility during and after disposal operations is critically dependent on the characteristics of the site itself. The site selection process consists of defining needs and objectives, identifying geographic regions of interest, screening and selecting candidate sites, collecting data on the candidate sites, and finally selecting the preferred site. Before the site selection procedures can be implemented, however, a formal legal system must be in place that defines broad objectives and, most importantly, clearly establishes responsibilities and accompanying authorities for the decision-making steps in the procedure. Site selection authorities should make every effort to develop trust and credibility with the public, local officials, and the news media. The responsibilities of supporting agencies must also be spelled out. Finally, a stable funding arrangement must be established so that activities such as data collection can proceed without interruption. Several examples, both international and within the US, are given

  11. Siting nuclear power plants

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Yellin, J.; Joskow, P.L.

    1980-01-01

    The first edition of this journal is devoted to the policies and problems of siting nuclear power plants and the question of how far commercial reactors should be placed from urban areas. The article is divided into four major siting issues: policies, risk evaluation, accident consequences, and economic and physical constraints. One concern is how to treat currently operating reactors and those under construction that were established under less-stringent criteria if siting is to be used as a way to limit the consequences of accidents. Mehanical cost-benefit analyses are not as appropriate as the systematic use of empirical observations in assessing the values involved. Stricter siting rules are justified because (1) opposition because of safety is growing: (2) remote siting will make the industry more stable; (3) the conflict is eliminated between regulatory policies and the probability basis for nuclear insurance; and (4) joint ownership of utilities and power-pooling are increasing. 227 references, 7 tables

  12. Site directed recombination

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jurka, Jerzy W.

    1997-01-01

    Enhanced homologous recombination is obtained by employing a consensus sequence which has been found to be associated with integration of repeat sequences, such as Alu and ID. The consensus sequence or sequence having a single transition mutation determines one site of a double break which allows for high efficiency of integration at the site. By introducing single or double stranded DNA having the consensus sequence flanking region joined to a sequence of interest, one can reproducibly direct integration of the sequence of interest at one or a limited number of sites. In this way, specific sites can be identified and homologous recombination achieved at the site by employing a second flanking sequence associated with a sequence proximal to the 3'-nick.

    1995-07-01

    The Fernald site is a Department of Energy (DOE)-owned facility that produced high-quality uranium metals for military defense for nearly 40 years. DOE suspended production at the site in 1989 and formally ended production in 1991. Although production activities have ceased, the site continues to examine the air and liquid pathways as possible routes through which pollutants from past operations and current remedial activities may leave the site. The Site Environmental Report (SER) is prepared annually in accordance with DOE Order 5400.1, General Environmental Protection Program. This 1994 SER provides the general public as well as scientists and engineers with the results from the site's ongoing Environmental Monitoring Program. Also included in this report is information concerning the site's progress toward achieving full compliance with requirements set forth by DOE, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and Ohio EPA (OEPA). For some readers, the highlights provided in this Executive Summary may provide sufficient information. Many readers, however, may wish to read more detailed descriptions of the information than those which are presented here.

    Arthur, R.; Apted, M. [QuantiSci, Denver, CO (United States)

    1996-12-01

    In this report, solubility constraints are evaluated on radioelement source-term concentrations supporting the SITE-94 performance assessment. Solubility models are based on heterogeneous-equilibrium, mass- and charge-balance constraints incorporated into the EQ3/6 geochemical software package, which is used to calculate the aqueous speciation behavior and solubilities of U, Th, Pu, Np, Am, Ni, Ra, Se, Sn, Sr, Tc and Zr in site groundwaters and near-field solutions. The chemical evolution of the near field is approximated using EQ3/6 in terms of limiting conditions at equilibrium, or steady state, in three closed systems representing fully saturated bentonite, Fe{sup o} corrosion products of the canister, and spent fuel. The calculations consider both low-temperature (15 deg C) and high-temperature (80 deg C) conditions in the near field, and the existence of either reducing or strongly oxidizing conditions in each of the bentonite, canister, and spent-fuel barriers. Heterogeneities in site characteristics are evaluated through consideration of a range of initial groundwaters and their interactions with engineered barriers. Aqueous speciation models for many radioelements are constrained by thermodynamic data that are estimated with varying degrees of accuracy. An important question, however, is how accurate do these models need to be for purposes of estimating source-term concentrations? For example, it is unrealistic to expect a high degree of accuracy in speciation models if such models predict solubilities that are below the analytical detection limit for a given radioelement. From a practical standpoint, such models are irrelevant if calculated solubilities cannot be tested by direct comparison to experimental data. In the absence of models that are both accurate and relevant for conditions of interest, the detection limit could define a pragmatic upper limit on radioelement solubility 56 refs, 25 tabs, 10 figs

  3. Retroviral integration: Site matters

    Science.gov (United States)

    Demeulemeester, Jonas; De Rijck, Jan

    2015-01-01

    Here, we review genomic target site selection during retroviral integration as a multistep process in which specific biases are introduced at each level. The first asymmetries are introduced when the virus takes a specific route into the nucleus. Next, by co‐opting distinct host cofactors, the integration machinery is guided to particular chromatin contexts. As the viral integrase captures a local target nucleosome, specific contacts introduce fine‐grained biases in the integration site distribution. In vivo, the established population of proviruses is subject to both positive and negative selection, thereby continuously reshaping the integration site distribution. By affecting stochastic proviral expression as well as the mutagenic potential of the virus, integration site choice may be an inherent part of the evolutionary strategies used by different retroviruses to maximise reproductive success.

  4. Siting controversial facilities

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Baird, R.D.; Blacker, P.B.

    1985-01-01

    There is often significant difficulty involved with siting controversial facilities. The social and political problems are frequently far more difficult to resolve than the technical and economic issues. The tendancy for most developing organizations is to address only technical issues in the search for a technically optimal site, to the exclusion of such weighting considerations as the social and political climate associated with potential sites--an approach which often imperils the success of the project. The site selection processes currently suggested is summarized and two contemporary examples of their application are cited. The difference between developers' real objectives and the objectives they have implicitly assumed by adopting the recommended approaches without augmentation are noted. The resulting morass of public opposition is attributed to the failure to consider the needs of individuals and groups who stand to be negatively impacted by the development. A comprehensive implementation strategy which addresses non-technical consideration in parallel with technical ones is presented and evaluated

    Coal mine sites can have significant effects on local environments. In addition to the physical disruption of land forms and ecosystems, mining can also leave behind a legacy of secondary detrimental effects due to leaching of acid and trace elements from discarded materials. This report looks at the remediation of both deep mine and opencast mine sites, covering reclamation methods, back-filling issues, drainage and restoration. Examples of national variations in the applicable legislation and in the definition of rehabilitation are compared. Ultimately, mine site rehabilitation should return sites to conditions where land forms, soils, hydrology, and flora and fauna are self-sustaining and compatible with surrounding land uses. Case studies are given to show what can be achieved and how some landscapes can actually be improved as a result of mining activity.

    Bussell, G.T.

    1985-01-01

    Inherent in the fusion program's transition from hydrogen devices to commercial power machines is a general increase in the size and scope of succeeding projects. This growth will lead to increased emphasis on safety, environmental impact, and the external effects of fusion in general, and of each new device in particular. A critically important consideration in this regard is site selection. The purpose of this paper is to examine major siting issues that may affect the economics, safety, and environmental impact of fusion

  15. Siting of research reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1987-01-01

    The purpose of this document is to develop criteria for siting and the site-related design basis for research reactors. The concepts presented in this document are intended as recommendations for new reactors and are not suggested for backfitting purposes for facilities already in existence. In siting research reactors serious consideration is given to minimizing the effects of the site on the reactor and the reactor on the site and the potential impact of the reactor on the environment. In this document guidance is first provided on the evaluation of the radiological impact of the installation under normal reactor operation and accident conditions. A classification of research reactors in groups is then proposed, together with a different approach for each group, to take into account the relevant safety problems associated with facilities of different characteristics. Guidance is also provided for both extreme natural events and for man-induced external events which could affect the safe operation of the reactor. Extreme natural events include earthquakes, flooding for river or coastal sites and extreme meteorological phenomena. The feasibility of emergency planning is finally considered for each group of reactors

    The borehole radar investigation program of the SCV-site (Site Characterization and Validation) has comprised single hole reflection measurements with centre frequencies of 22, 45, and 60 MHz. The radar range obtained in the single hole reflection measurements was approximately 100 m for the lower frequency (22 MHz) and about 60 m for the centre frequency 45 MHz. In the crosshole measurements transmitter-receiver separations from 60 to 200 m have been used. The radar investigations have given a three dimensional description of the structure at the SCV-site. A generalized model of the site has been produced which includes three major zones, four minor zones and a circular feature. These features are considered to be the most significant at the site. Smaller features than the ones included in the generalized model certainly exist but no additional features comparable to the three major zones are thought to exist. The results indicate that the zones are not homogeneous but rather that they are highly irregular containing parts of considerably increased fracturing and parts where their contrast to the background rock is quite small. The zones appear to be approximately planar at least at the scale of the site. At a smaller scale the zones can appear quite irregular. (authors)

    Design and site selection criteria for the Svalbard oil spill experiments are described. All three experimental sites have coarse and mixed sediment beaches of sand and pebble; within each site wave exposure is very similar; along-shore and across-shore sediment characteristics are also relatively homogeneous. Tidal range is in the order of 0.6 m at neaps, and 1.8 m at springs. All three sites are open to wave action and are ice-free during the experimental period of mid-July to mid-October. Study plots at each site were selected for different treatments from within the continuous stretch of oiled shoreline, with oiled buffer zones between plots and at either end of the oiled zone. Treatments included mixing (tilling), sediment relocation (surf washing) and bioremediation (nutrient enrichment). Measurements and observations were carried out during the summers of 1997 and 1998. The characteristics measured were: wave and wind conditions; beach topography and elevation; sediment grain size distribution; mineral fines size distribution and mineral composition; background hydrocarbons; concentration of oil within experimental plots and the rate of oil loss over time; depth of oil penetration and thickness of the oiled sediment layer; oil concentration and toxicity of near-shore benthic sediments; mineral composition of suspended particulate material captured in sub-tidal sediment traps; and oil-fines interaction in near-shore water samples. 1 fig.

  19. Criteria of site assessment

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Gibbs, P.; Fuchs, H.

    1975-01-01

    The criteria which lead to the choice of a particular site for a nuclear power station are in general very similar to those which would apply to any other type of power station. The principal differences derive from the simpler transport problems for the fuel compared with, say, solid fuel and the special safety considerations which attach to nuclear reactors. The search for a suitable site obviously starts by considering where the power is needed, i.e. where the load centers are and also the existing transmission network which may help to bring the power from a more remote site to the load centers. This economic incentive to put the plant close to loads conflicts directly with the nuclear safety argument which favours more remote siting, and part of the problem of site selection is to reconcile these two matters. In addition, there are many other important matters which will be considered later concerning the adequacy of cooling water supplies, foundation conditions, etc., all of which must be examined in considerable detail.

  20. Repository site characterization

    Voss, J.W.; Pentz, D.L.

    1987-01-01

    The characterization of candidate repository sites has a number of programmatic objectives. Principal among these is the acquisition of data: a) to determine the suitability of a site relative to the DOE repository siting guidelines, b) to support model development and calculations to determine the suitability of a site relative to the post closure criteria of the NRC and EPA, c) to support the design of a disposal system, including the waste package and the engineered barrier system, as well as the shafts and underground openings of the repository. In meeting the gaols of site characterization, the authors have an obligation to conduct their investigations within an appropriate budget and schedule. This mandates that a well-constructed and systematic plan for field investigations be developed. Such a plan must fully account for the mechanisms which will control the radiologic performance in the repository. The plan must also flexibly and dynamically respond to the results of each step of field investigation, responding to the spatial variability of earth as well as to enhanced understandings of the performance of the disposal system. Such a plan must ensure that sufficient data are available to support the necessary probabilistic calculations of performance. This paper explores the planning for field data acquisition with specific reference to requirements for demonstrations of the acceptable performance for disposal systems

    This Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan describes the measures that are taken at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s (LLNL) Experimental Test Site (Site 300) near Tracy, California, to prevent, control, and handle potential spills from aboveground containers that can contain 55 gallons or more of oil. This SPCC Plan complies with the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 112 (40 CFR 112) and with 40 CFR 761.65(b) and (c), which regulates the temporary storage of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). This Plan has also been prepared in accordance with Division 20, Chapter 6.67 of the California Health and Safety Code (HSC 6.67) requirements for oil pollution prevention (referred to as the Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act [APSA]), and the United States Department of Energy (DOE) Order No. 436.1. This SPCC Plan establishes procedures, methods, equipment, and other requirements to prevent the discharge of oil into or upon the navigable waters of the United States or adjoining shorelines for aboveground oil storage and use at Site 300. This SPCC Plan has been prepared for the entire Site 300 facility and replaces the three previous plans prepared for Site 300: LLNL SPCC for Electrical Substations Near Buildings 846 and 865 (LLNL 2015), LLNL SPCC for Building 883 (LLNL 2015), and LLNL SPCC for Building 801 (LLNL 2014).

    The paper discusses the problem of nuclear power plant siting according to presently applicable legislation in Italy, taking into account urban and environmental aspects. Act No 393 of 2 August 1975 on the siting of nuclear plants introduced a significant change in that prior to its adoption, the competence to license nuclear installations was divided amongst so many bodies that approval was inevitably delayed. Act No. 393 lays down the siting procedure which involves authorities at regional and State level and provides a step by step consultation of the Communes concerned and gives them a time limit for replying to the proposed project, while enabling the necessary scientific, environmental and urban investigations to be made. Thus although ultimate decisions rest with the State, the regional bodies representing the public have a voice in them. In such planning the authorities must take into account the public interest, from the environmental and social angles as well as political and economic interests. (NEA) [fr

In addition, it discusses factors affecting radionuclide transport, the effect of thermal loading on the natural system, and tectonic hazards. The ''Yucca Mountain Site Description'' is broad in nature. It summarizes investigations carried out as part of the Yucca Mountain Project since 1988, but it also includes work done at the site in earlier years, as well as studies performed by others. The document has been prepared under the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management quality assurance program for the Yucca Mountain Project. Yucca Mountain is located in Nye County in southern Nevada. The site lies in the north-central part of the Basin and Range physiographic province, within the northernmost subprovince commonly referred to as the Great Basin. The basin and range physiography reflects the extensional tectonic regime that has affected the region during the middle and late Cenozoic Era. Yucca Mountain was initially selected for characterization, in part, because of its thick unsaturated zone, its arid to semiarid climate, and the existence of a rock type that would support excavation of stable openings. In 1987, the United States Congress directed that Yucca Mountain be the only site characterized to evaluate its suitability for development of a geologic repository for high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel

    Site assessment for small wind energy systems is one of the key factors in the successful installation, operation, and performance of a small wind turbine. A proper site assessment is a difficult process that includes wind resource assessment and the evaluation of site characteristics. These guidelines address many of the relevant parts of a site assessment with an emphasis on wind resource assessment, using methods other than on-site data collection and creating a small wind site assessment report.

L’objectif est de mettre en évidence, dans ce type de système ouvert, les contraintes organisationnelles dues à la multiplicité des niveaux de décision et des réseaux d’acteurs ayant chacun leurs objectifs spécifiques. Ces contraintes ont un coût pour les opérateurs, en particulier en ce qui concerne les risques encourus.Après avoir montré les limites de la gestion verticale des risques, les régulations individuelles et collectives mises en place dans les équipes dans le but de gérer les risques sont analysées du point de vue de l’articulation des rôles des anciens et des novices dans le processus d’action, dans plusieurs situations.La méthodologie employée associe à l’analyse in situ des questionnaires et des tableaux de bord. Elle permet de mettre en évidence des situations critiques occasionnées par les interventions de multiples acteurs, en amont des chantiers et sur les sites. Ces intervenants perturbent la gestion horizontale des risques assurée par les anciens, les conduisant à faire des compromis, souvent au détriment de leur santé.In this article, we analyze the work activity of festival equipment erectors and installers in a large city local authority. The purpose is to identify, in this type of open system, the organizational constraints caused by the many decision levels and networks of actors with their own specific objectives. These constraints have a cost for the operators, especially in terms of occupational risks.After showing the limitations of " vertical " risk management, the individual and collective regulations that are implemented in the teams in order to manage the risks are analyzed from the standpoint of the articulation of older workers’ and novices’ roles in the action process, in several situations.The methodology

    This second version of the Olkiluoto Site Report, produced by the OMTF (Olkiluoto Modelling Task Force), updates the Olkiluoto Site Report 2004 (Posiva 2005) with the data and knowledge obtained up to December 2005. The main product of the modelling has been to develop a descriptive model of the site (the Site Descriptive Model), i.e. a model describing the geometry, properties of the bedrock and the water and the associated interacting processes and mechanisms. For practical reasons, the Site Descriptive Model is divided into five parts: surface system, geology, rock mechanics, hydrogeology and hydrogeochemistry, which are presented in individual chapters. Four separated models are presented: the geological, rock mechanics, hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical models. The consistency between the hydrogeological and hydrogeochemical models is assessed in a joint chapter. Chapter 1 presents an outline of the report, explains the background to its development and sets out its objectives and scope. It is also introduces and explains the integrated modelling methodology, the nomenclature used in the descriptions of the models and the prediction/outcome studies. Chapter 2 provides a brief overview of the data used for producing the Site Description. Chapters 3 to 8 present the descriptive modelling, which involves interpreting data, interpolating or extrapolating between measurement points and calibrating the model against data, based on the various assumptions made about each conceptual model. Chapter 9 presents the results of the prediction/outcome studies performed during 2005 and Chapter 10 the overall consistency and confidence assessment. Overall conclusions are provided in Chapter 11. The main advances since Site Report 2004 are: A new geological model is presented in Chapter 4, representing a significant change from Bedrock Model 2003/1. There has been extensive use of geological data, whereas hydrogeological data have deliberately not been used and more

    This study identifies and establishes relative guidelines to be used for siting of repository shafts. Weights were determined for the significant factors that impact the selection of shaft locations for a nuclear waste repository in salt. The study identified a total of 45 factors. A panel of experienced mining people utilized the Kepner-Tregoe (K-T) Decision Analysis Process to perform a structured evaluation of each significant shaft siting factor. The evaluation determined that 22 of the factors were absolute constraints and that the other 23 factors were desirable characteristics. The group established the relative weights for each of the 23 desirable characteristics by using a paired comparison method. 8 refs., 2 figs., 5 tabs

    Park, Susan M.; Vetterlein, Antje

    Norms research has made significant inroads into examining their emergence and influence in international relations, while recognizing international organizations (IOs) as key social sites for norms to be created and/or disseminated. This paper interrogates how IOs as “organizational platforms......” (Finnemore 1996) influence the norm building process. Going beyond state-centric approaches to norm construction, it argues that the process of taking up a norm by an IO does affect the norm’s power. A norm’s strength is determined by the extent to which it is uncontested and taken for granted as appropriate...... the norm building process in this way provides insight into the effect of IOs as social sites in strengthening a norm....

    Throughout the scientific community, Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is renowned for its leading-edge research in physics, medicine, chemistry, biology, materials, and the environment. BNL is committed to supporting its world-class scientific research with an internationally recognized environmental protection program. The 1999 Site Environmental Report (SER) summarizes the status of the Laboratory's environmental programs and performance, including the steady progress towards cleaning up the site and fully integrating environmental stewardship into all facets of the Laboratory's mission. BNL is located on 5,265 acres of pine barrens in Suffolk County in the center of Long Island, New York. The Laboratory is situated above a sole source aquifer at the headwaters of the Peconic River; therefore, protecting ground and surface water quality is a special concern. Approximately 3,600 acres of the site are undeveloped and serve as habitat for a wide variety of animals and plants, including one New York State endangered species, the tiger salamander, and two New York State threatened species, the banded sunfish and the stiff goldenrod. Monitoring, preserving, and restoring these ecological resources is a high priority for the Laboratory.

    The Environmental Restoration and Waste Management Five-Year Plan (FYP) covers the period for FY 1989 through FY 1995. The plan establishes a Department of Energy -- Headquarters (DOE-HQ) agenda for cleanup and compliance against which overall progress can be measured. The FYP covers three areas: Corrective Activities, Environmental Restoration, and Waste Management Operations. Corrective Activities are those activities necessary to bring active or standby facilities into compliance with local, state, and federal environmental regulations. Environmental restoration activities include the assessment and cleanup of surplus facilities and inactive waste sites. Waste management operations includes the treatment, storage, and disposal of wastes which are generated as a result of ongoing operations. This Site Specific Plan (SSP) has been prepared by the Savannah River Site (SRS) in order to show how environmental restoration and waste management activities that were identified during the preparation of the FYP will be implemented, tracked, and reported. The SSP describes DOE Savannah River (DOE-SR) and operating contractor, Westinghouse Savannah River Company (WSRC), organizations that are responsible, for undertaking the activities identified in this plan. The SSP has been prepared in accordance with guidance received from DOE-HQ. DOE-SR is accountable to DOE-HQ for the implementation of this plan. 8 refs., 46 figs., 23 tabs

    It became apparent, during first few years operation of the Marcoule Centre, that it was very useful to exploit the natural decay rate of the radioactive element contaminating the waste. The storage of this waste under the best possible conditions in each case, was first of all favorable for the radiological safety point of view; it led, furthermore, to a marked reduction in the cost price since it made it possible to avoid employing protection means which would have proved to be excessively outsize after a few years. Finally, even when the half-life of the radioelements involved seemed to annul any possible advantages of this method, the temporary storage made it possible to develop treatment processes which were unknown at the time. The overall result of this policy is that at the present time over 98 per cent of the solid waste produced by the Marcoule Centre has been processed in such a way that it can, at any moment, be discharged from the site without difficulty. (authors) [French] Des les premieres annees de fonctionnement du Centre de Marcoule, il est apparu qu'il etait extremement benefique de mettre a profit la decroissance naturelle des elements radioactifs contaminant les dechets. Le stockage de ces dechets dans des conditions appropriees a chaque cas d'espece a tout d'abord ete favorable a la surete radiologique; en outre, il a abouti a une reduction sensible des prix de revient, du fait qu'il a evite de mettre en oeuvre des moyens de protection qui se seraient reveles surdimensionnes au bout de quelques annees. Enfin, meme lorsque la periode des radioelements en cause semblait enlever tout interet a cette methode, le stockage d'attente a permis de mettre au point des procedes de traitement inconnus a l'epoque. Le resultat global de cette politique est que, actuellement, plus de 98 pour cent des dechets solides produits depuis l'origine du Centre de Marcoule ont ete conditionnes de telle sorte qu'ils peuvent, a tout moment, etre evacues hors du Site

    Document available in extended abstract form only. ANDRA is directly responsible for all scientific data acquired in real time and wire-line at the Meuse Haute- Marne underground research laboratory. To fulfil the needs for the acquisition, storage and display of realtime data, Andra decided to develop and install a system called SAGD (Systeme d'Acquisition et de Gestion des Donnees). With this view, a system was designed to: - Determine the acquisition tools and methods so that technical failures would not result in the loss of data or the acquisition of erroneous data, - Store (conservation) in the long-term all data in a single place in a single form, - Allow the diffusion and free access of data to the large community of ANDRA researchers, partners and service contractors in a single fluid way whatever the source of the data. - Help external communication through a user friendly and easy to understand presentation of the recorded data. S.A.G.D fulfils these objectives by: - Making available in real time, and through a single system, all experimental data under acquisition at the MHM Center and Mont Terri laboratory, - Displaying the recorded data on temporal windows and specific time step, - Allowing remote control of the experimentations, - Ensuring the traceability of all recorded information, - Ensuring data storage in a data base. S.A.G.D has been deployed in the first experimental drift at -445 m in November 2004. It was subsequently extended to the underground Mont Terri laboratory in Switzerland in 2005 and to the entire surface logging network of the Meuse / Haute-Marne Center in 2008. The SAGD computer network is an autonomous network consisting of optical fiber links which transmits experimentation data to the servers and computers in the control room, whether they originate from the bottom of a borehole or surface level. A high speed link between Mont Terri and Bure allows remote control of all the experimentations and the centralization of all

    The functions of a nuclear materials management scheme are reviewed in relation to the activities of research establishments. Since these activities are normally non-repetitive, there is little opportunity to establish statistical quality and quantity control. The risks of an error in the material accounts must therefore be established from relatively few analytical measurements and the implications of this are discussed. Similar arguments are applied to illustrate the difficulties of quality control on suppliers when a large variety of materials are being purchased in small quantities.

    The Guarani Aquifer System Project, funded by the World Bank/GEF, acknowledged the importance of public participation in aquifer management through educational materials, workshops and other projects to disseminate information. At the conclusion of the project in 2009 public awareness initiatives trailed off due to lack of funding and the weakening of cross-sectorial organization. The Uruguayan publics awareness of the Guarani Aquifer System and its symbolic and strategic importance has grown over the last decade but this awareness is largely articulated through broad catch phrases. The next step toward active public participation in aquifer management policy is the creation of mechanisms firstly, for diffusing ever-evolving scientific and technical knowledge, secondly, encouraging behaviour and policy changes based on that knowledge and lastly, achieving a dialogue between local and international agendas focused on the Guarani Aquifer System. During 2011 the organizers of the Lo Esencial es Invisible a los Ojos project, sponsored by Uruguays Casa Bertolt Brecht and Italys Associazione Filo Rosso, collaborated with teachers, scientists, and other members of society in the former Guarani Aquifer System Project pilot sites of Rivera and Salto. The project will facilitate dialogue among local stakeholders to promote area-specific best practices and assist local actors to create multimedia products to both document this dialogue and communicate its outcomes.

The results show that rural people of the arid zone manage and preserve trees in their farms better than the population of the semi-arid zone. Land fallow is practiced in 87.91% of the plots for a mean period of 4.4 years. Land clearing was also practiced by 98.9% of the questionned farmers and the mean number of trees that were not cut varied from 8 in the semi-arid zone to 20 in the arid zone. Trees in the farms were used to delimitate farms boundaries, improve soil fertility, to prepare traditional medecine and as energy source and timber. The sociocultural habits of the people are the main constraint to an adequate management of the tree resources. To change the current situation, sensitization and extension efforts of the new developped tree management techniques have to be carried out especially in the semi-arid zone.

The cycle is an overall view of stages within a continual loop of prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. Disaster preparedness is one of the stages of the disaster management cycle guided in a manner that adequately protects communities. It involves the identification of potential hazards and vulnerabilities through risk assessments, forecast development and warning systems, modelling and training for a number of disaster scenarios of different hazards and at different magnitudes, development of insurance infrastructure and the growth of an intelligent community. The energy sector dominates in the UAE and consists of various assets - electricity, oil and natural gas that are geographically dispersed and connected by systems and networks. The protection of these systems and assets and within the energy sector especially, the safeguarding of oil and gas infrastructure from any and all internal and external threats should become top priority in the UAE. Threats to geopolitical and economic stability that need to be considered and prepared to include tectonic activity, climate change, nuclear energy, terrorism and war. This paper discusses the current level of resilience in the Emirati energy sector and what can be done to improve it. The secondary data was taken from various academic and professional sources whilst the primary data, which constitutes 35 questionnaires with both qualitative and quantitative data, were collected on site at two electricity generating plants, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai.

    Nowadays, renewable energies become an alternative solution to the classical energies obtained from fossil resources. Renewable energies have reached a high level of development, mainly in terms of cost and production facilities. However, the electrical conversion systems are often not optimized in terms of reliability, electrical efficiency and cost production. For that, there is a lot of reticence to install these systems in home sites or in big centrals for mass energy production. Since 1997 LAAS-CNRS has focused his research in the optimization of the power conversion chains from a system point of view. Indeed, due to the inexistence of optimal solutions for these electrical systems and the absence of research groups in France interested in this problem, the research goals were finally centered on the electrical conversion and thermal management of photovoltaic energy systems. First works were focused in the optimization of conversion efficiency. For that, LAAS-CNRS has developed and installed a complete outdoor photovoltaic system. The PV demonstration site has 1 kW of peak power and an automatic measurement system capable of characterize the electrical efficiency of different power conversion structures with high level of precision. Novel power conversion structures devoted for photovoltaic systems have been developed in collaboration of foreign research groups like the GAEI from University Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona) and the EPIC from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Barcelona). Meteorological dependence of the renewable energy sources produces a low level of predictability of the energy production. In order to produce energy without strong variations we have coupled different energy sources like PV generators and small wind generators by means of batteries. Additional studies have been made regarding to the optimal battery management. Maturity in the studies of the photovoltaic systems shows news trends and new possible applications of this systems

    During the working session, Working Group C discussed the following questions proposed by the Scientific Programme Committee of AMIGO 2: - Provide a list of concrete examples of limitations and their reasons. In addressing these issues, consider the relation between what you can measure and what you would like to describe. - Can these limitations be handled by defensible uncertainty descriptions? - What has been your experience in predicting properties/responses and then making comparisons with subsequent measurements? How much 'after-fitting' was necessary? Did the exercise contribute to validation? What did it teach you about your abilities to characterise? - What are the realities of transferability of data between sites? What can actually be transferred (data, conceptual models, evaluation procedures) and what could not? - How have the experiences on possibilities and limitations influenced your investigation programme? - How are the limits in what can be achieved factored into safety assessment and engineering?

  6. Nuclear power plant siting

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Sulkiewicz, M.; Navratil, J.

    The construction of a nuclear power plant is conditioned on territorial requirements and is accompanied by the disturbance of the environment, land occupation, population migration, the emission of radioactive wastes, thermal pollution, etc. On the other hand, a nuclear power plant makes possible the introduction of district heating and increases the economic and civilization activity of the population. Due to the construction of a nuclear power plant the set limits of negative impacts must not be exceeded. The locality should be selected such as to reduce the unfavourable effects of the plant and to fully use its benefits. The decision on the siting of the nuclear power plant is preceded by the processing of a number of surveys and a wide range of documentation to which the given criteria are strictly applied. (B.H.)

    1996-01-01

    By volatilizing aromatic compounds through aeration, landfarming is a recognized approach to the bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soil. With this method, the soil is cultivated and aided with fertilizer amendment to provide a nutrient source for the microbial population involved in the degradation of hydrocarbons. The effectiveness of bioremediation will depend on several factors, including topographic features, soil properties, and biochemistry. Since bioremediation is inhibited by anaerobic conditions, sites that are sloped or have trenches to collect runoff water are preferable. As for soil properties, the percentage of sand should not be too high, but aeration is essential to avoid anaerobic conditions. Addition of straw is generally beneficial, and fertilizers with nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium will help degrading hydrocarbons. Temperature, pH, and salt content are also important factors since they facilitate microbial activity. 3 refs

The finished website is intended for the general public, specifically potential customers interested in learning about NASA's chemical rocket test facility capabilities and test assignment process. The goal of the website is to give the public insight about the purpose and function of the RPT Program. Working on this project gave me the opportunity to learn skills necessary for effective project management. The RPT Program Office manages numerous facilities so they are required to travel often to other sites for meetings throughout the year. Maneuvering around the travel schedule of the office and the workload priority of the IT Department proved to be quite the challenge. I overcame the travel schedule of the office by frequently communicating and checking in with my mentor via email and telephone.

    J. L. King

    2001-01-01

    Commercial electric power generation, nuclear weapons production, the operation of naval reactors, and research and development activities produce spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. Spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste have been accumulating at commercial reactor sites and storage facilities across the country since 1957. Spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste have been accumulating at sites now managed by U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) since the mid-1940s. The DOE has the statutory obligation to dispose of these wastes. The U.S. has studied methods for the safe storage and disposal of radioactive waste for more than 40 years. Many organizations and government agencies have participated in these studies. In the 1950s, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission requested the National Academy of Sciences to evaluate options for land disposal of radioactive waste. The U.S. Atomic Energy Commission and its successor agencies, the Energy Research and Development Administration and the DOE, continued to analyze radioactive waste management options throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In 1979, an Interagency Review Group that included representatives of 14 federal government entities provided findings and recommendations to the President. After analyzing a range of options, disposal in a geologic repository emerged as the preferred long-term environmental solution. This consensus is reflected in the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 (NWPA). The NWPA and related statutes established the framework for addressing the issues of radioactive waste disposal and designated the roles and responsibilities of the federal government and the owners and generators of the waste

    Information on performance assessment capabilities and activities was collected from eight DOE sites. All eight sites either currently dispose of low-level radioactive waste (LLW) or plan to dispose of LLW in the near future. A survey questionnaire was developed and sent to key individuals involved in DOE Order 5820.2A performance assessment activities at each site. The sites surveyed included: Hanford Site (Hanford), Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL), Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Nevada Test Site (NTS), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant (Paducah), Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant (Portsmouth), and Savannah River Site (SRS). The questionnaire addressed all aspects of the performance assessment process; from waste source term to dose conversion factors. This report presents the information developed from the site questionnaire and provides a comparison of site-specific performance assessment approaches, data needs, and ongoing and planned activities. All sites are engaged in completing the radioactive waste disposal facility performance assessment required by DOE Order 5820.2A.

    SITES (Site Information and Total Environmental Data Management System) has been developed for the purpose of systematically managing site characteristics and environmental data produced during the pre-operational, operational, and post-closure phases of a radioactive waste disposal facility. SITES is an integration system, which consists of 4 modules, to be available for maintenance of site characteristics data, for safety assessment, and for site/environment monitoring; site environmental data management module (SECURE), integrated safety assessment module (SAINT), site/environment monitoring module (SUDAL) and geological information module for geological data management (SITES-GIS). Each module has its database with the functions of browsing, storing, and reporting data and information. Data from SECURE and SUDAL are interconnected to be utilized as inputs to SAINT. SAINT has the functions that multi-user can access simultaneously via client-server system, and the safety assessment results can be managed with its embedded Quality Assurance feature. Comparison between assessment results and environmental monitoring data can be made and visualized in SUDAL and SITES-GIS. Also, SUDAL is designed that the periodic monitoring data and information could be opened to the public via internet homepage. SITES has applied to the Wolsong low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste disposal center in Korea, and is expected to enhance the function of site/environment monitoring in other nuclear-related facilities and also in industrial facilities handling hazardous materials.

    Contaminant releases in or near a building can lead to significant human exposures unless prompt response is taken. U.S. Federal and local agencies are implementing programs to place air-monitoring samplers in buildings to quickly detect biological agents. We describe a probabilistic algorithm for siting samplers in order to detect accidental or intentional releases of biological material. The algorithm maximizes the probability of detecting a release from among a suite of realistic scenarios. The scenarios may differ in any unknown, for example the release size or location, weather, mode of building operation, etc. The algorithm also can optimize sampler placement in the face of modeling uncertainties, for example the airflow leakage characteristics of the building, and the detection capabilities of the samplers. In an illustrative example, we apply the algorithm to a hypothetical 24-room commercial building, finding optimal networks for a variety of assumed sampler types and performance characteristics. We also discuss extensions of this work for detecting ambient pollutants in buildings, and for understanding building-wide airflow, pollutant dispersion, and exposures.

    The U.S. Department of Energy (Department) Office of Legacy Management (LM), established in 2003, manages the Department's postclosure responsibilities and ensures the future protection of human health and the environment. During World War II and the Cold War, the Federal government developed and operated a vast network of industrial facilities for the research, production, and testing of nuclear weapons, as well as other scientific and engineering research. These processes left a legacy of radioactive and chemical waste, environmental contamination, and hazardous facilities and materials at well over 100 sites. Since 1989, the Department has taken an aggressive accelerated cleanup approach to reduce risks and cut costs. At most Departmental sites undergoing cleanup, some residual hazards will remain at the time cleanup is completed due to financial and technical impracticality. However, the Department still has an obligation to protect human health and the environment after cleanup is completed. LM fulfills DOE's postclosure obligation by providing long-term management of postcleanup sites which do not have continuing missions. LM is also responsible for sites under the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). Currently, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is responsible for site surveys and remediation at FUSRAP sites. Once remediation is completed, LM becomes responsible for long-term management. LM also has responsibility for uranium processing sites addressed by Title II of the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (UMTRCA). UMTRCA Title II sites are sites that were commercially owned and are regulated under a U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) license. For license termination, the owner must conduct an NRC-approved cleanup of any on-site radioactive waste remaining from former uranium ore-processing operations. The site owner must also provide full funding for inspections and, if necessary, ongoing maintenance. Once site

As entrevistas mostram finalmente, que uma melhor gestão dos riscos ambientais passará por uma boa consideração do universo técnico e cultural dos agricultores assim como de suas dificuldades econômicas.L’ouest du Rio Grande do Sul est dominé par la culture du soja, du riz et par l’élevage bovin. Dans la partie sableuse, le milieu est affecté par des phénomènes d’érosion produisant des modelés éoliens spectaculaires (arenização rappelant dans l’imaginaire ceux des déserts. La production agricole est importante ce qui engendre des prélèvements d’eau pour l’irrigation du riz, mais aussi l’utilisation de pesticides pour l’ensemble des cultures. La gestion durable des ressources en eau et en sol de cette région nécessite la mise en place d’action de conservation. Mais un certain nombre de questions se posent alors : comment les agriculteurs perçoivent ces phénomènes ? Constituent-ils pour eux des enjeux ? Comment raisonnent-ils leurs pratiques ? Avec quels réseaux ? Quelles sont les interactions avec les pouvoirs publics ?La méthodologie adoptée s’appuie sur des enquêtes ouvertes réalisées auprès de 23 agriculteurs. Il s’agit de mieux comprendre leur perception de l’environnement, leurs modes de gestion et d’identifier les variables sociales au sein de l’échantillon expliquant des différences de comportement.Les résultats que nous avons obtenus montrent que peu d’agriculteurs perçoivent leurs responsabilités quant à l’érosion des sols et à l’état des ressources en eau. Si des risques de manque d’eau sont perçus par certains, ils sont attribués essentiellement à la sécheresse et non à une surexploitation des ressources, la pollution est négligée.

    This report documents the site specific base data that were available, and the utilization of these data within SITE-94. A brief summary is given of SKB's preliminary site investigations for the Aespoe Hard Rock Laboratory (HRL), which were the main source of site-specific data for SITE-94, and an overview is given of the field methods and instrumentation for the preliminary investigations. A compilation is given of comments concerning the availability and quality of the data for Aespoe, and specific recommendations are given for future site investigations. It was found that the HRL pre-investigations produced a large quantity of data which were, for the most part, of sufficient quality to be valuable for a performance assessment. However, some problems were encountered regarding documentation, procedural consistency, positional information, and storage of the data from the measurements. 77 refs, 4 tabs

    The Final Design Report (FDR) of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) was published on July 2001 as a summary of the Engineering Design Activity (EDA). After the EDA, site dependent design has been investigated for the invitation of ITER toward Rokkasho Site (Iyasakadai area) in Aomori prefecture. This report describes the results of site layout of major buildings and structures of ITER in the Rokkasho-Site. The data of the ground near the site and the results of site dependent design in Japan were applied to this study. Through this study, the most appropriate site layout has been constructed with satisfaction of following conditions. (1) Bedrock level at the tokamak complex building is relatively high and it can be reduced the cost of excavation and foundation work. (2) Total amount of excavation soil for site preparation is minimized and the flexibility of the layout is ensured with flat ground level. (3) Accessibility of human and equipments, reduction of noise and vibration to the environment can be obtained. Total length of ducts and piping between buildings in site is minimized. (author)

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The rate of protein structures being deposited in the Protein Data Bank surpasses the capacity to experimentally characterise them and therefore computational methods to analyse these structures have become increasingly important. Identifying the region of the protein most likely to be involved in function is useful in order to gain information about its potential role. There are many available approaches to predict functional site, but many are not made available via a publicly-accessible application. Results Here we present a functional site prediction tool (SitesIdentify, based on combining sequence conservation information with geometry-based cleft identification, that is freely available via a web-server. We have shown that SitesIdentify compares favourably to other functional site prediction tools in a comparison of seven methods on a non-redundant set of 237 enzymes with annotated active sites. Conclusion SitesIdentify is able to produce comparable accuracy in predicting functional sites to its closest available counterpart, but in addition achieves improved accuracy for proteins with few characterised homologues. SitesIdentify is available via a webserver at http://www.manchester.ac.uk/bioinformatics/sitesidentify/

    This report presents the results of site analysis for the Umatilla Satellite and Release Sites Project. The purpose of this project is to provide engineering services for the siting and conceptual design of satellite and release facilities for the Umatilla Basin hatchery program. The Umatilla Basin hatchery program consists of artificial production facilities for salmon and steelhead to enhance production in the Umatilla River as defined in the Umatilla master plan approved in 1989 by the Northwest Power Planning Council. Facilities identified in the master plan include adult salmon broodstock holding and spawning facilities, facilities for recovery, acclimation, and/or extended rearing of salmon juveniles, and development of river sites for release of hatchery salmon and steelhead. The historic and current distribution of fall chinook, summer chinook, and coho salmon and steelhead trout was summarized for the Umatilla River basin. Current and future production and release objectives were reviewed. Twenty seven sites were evaluated for the potential and development of facilities. Engineering and environmental attributes of the sites were evaluated and compared to facility requirements for water and space. Site screening was conducted to identify the sites with the most potential for facility development. Alternative sites were selected for conceptual design of each facility type. A proposed program for adult holding facilities, final rearing/acclimation, and direct release facilities was developed.

    Full Text Available To benchmark a hybrid vehicle’s Energy Management Strategy (EMS usually a given, often certified, velocity trajectory is exploited. In this paper it is reasoned that it is also beneficial to optimize the velocity trajectory. Especially optimizing the vehicle braking trajectories, through maximization of energy recuperation, results in considerable fuel savings on the same traveled distance. Given future route (target velocities as function of traveled distance/location, traffic, and possibly weather information, together with the vehicle’s road load parameters, the future power request trajectory can be estimated. Dynamic Programming (DP techniques can then be used to predict the optimal power split trajectory for the upcoming route, such that a desired state-of-charge at the end of the route is reached. The DP solution is re-calculated at a certain rate in order to adapt to changing conditions, e.g., traffic conditions, and used in a lower level real-time EMS to guarantee both battery state-of-charge as well as minimal fuel consumption. Pour évaluer la Stratégie de Gestion de l’Énergie (SGE d’un véhicule hybride, on exploite généralement un cycle de conduite donné, souvent certifié. Dans cet article, l’optimisation de l’itinéraire apparaît aussi comme nécessaire. L’optimisation, en particulier, des conditions de freinage du véhicule, par la maximisation de la récupération d’énergie, permet des économies considérables de combustible sur une même distance parcourue. Pour un itinéraire donné (vitesses cibles en fonction de la distance parcourue et de la position, compte tenu des conditions de circulation, des éventuelles données météorologiques et des paramètres de perte du véhicule, on peut estimer les besoins en puissance nécessaire pour le parcourir. Des techniques de Programmation Dynamique (PD peuvent alors être employées pour prévoir la répartition de puissance optimale pour un parcours donn

    performance indicators have higher values. [Italian] I sistemi di supporto alle decisioni che fanno uso di tecniche di analisi multicriterio sono strumenti che, adattandosi ai vari problemi, affiancano il decisore senza sostituirlo, assistendolo nella formulazione del problema, suggerendo e confrontando soluzioni alternative, scartando quelle inefficienti. per valutare la scelta tra due ipotesi alternative di gestione dei rifiuti solidi urbani e' stato applicato al caso di Trento un modello di supporto alle decisioni denominato AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process), ampiamente utilizzato nella valutazione del ciclo di vita dei prodotti (LCA). Il metodo consente di evidenziare la soluzione che, tra piu' alternative rispetta maggiormente la scala di priorita' definita dal decisore, mantenendo quindi la maggior coerenza possibile tra le premesse e gli obiettivi. Il modello ha messo a confronto due sistemi integrati di smaltimento dei rifiuti per il Trentino. Una soluzione basata sullo schema del Piano Provinciale di smaltimento dei rifiuti del 1997 in cui la discarica ha ancora un ruolo di primo ordine, ed una soluzione alternativa che attribuisce un ruolo centrale alla termodistruzione. Ilmodello ha integrato contemporaneamente tutti gli indicatori (economici, ambientali, energetici e prestazionali), e ha consentito di identificare come soluzione migliore, l'ipotesi alternativa. I vantaggi ambientali, energetici e di prestazione (maggiore recupero di energia e materiali, maggiore autonomia di smaltimento garantita dal sistema e minore impatto tossicologico) conseguibili con la seconda ipotesi, opportunamente pesati, possono orientare il decisore verso una scelta non dettata da sole motivazioni di ordine economico, ma che tenga conto delle esternalita' incluse nella valutazione.

    1993-01-01

    In August 1991, the Joint Contractors came to agreement with Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and the Department of Energy (DOE) on a workscope for the cost-shared Early Site Permit Demonstration Program. One task within the scope was the development of a guide for site selection criteria and procedures. A generic Siting Guide his been prepared that is a roadmap and tool for applicants to use developing detailed siting plans for their specific region of the country. The guide presents three fundamental principles that, if used, ensure a high degree of success for an ESP applicant. First, the site selection process should take into consideration environmentally diverse site locations within a given region of interest. Second, the process should contain appropriate opportunities for input from the public. Third, the process should be applied so that it is clearly reasonable to an impartial observer, based on appropriately selected criteria, including criteria which demonstrate that the site can host an advanced light water reactor (ALWR). The Siting Guide provides for a systematic, comprehensive site selection process in which three basic types of criteria (exclusionary, avoidance, and suitability) are presented via a four-step procedure. It provides a check list of the criteria for each one of these steps. Criteria are applied qualitatively, as well as presented numerically, within the guide. The applicant should use the generic guide as an exhaustive checklist, customizing the guide to his individual situation

  7. Bedrock hydrogeology Forsmark. Site descriptive modelling, SDM-Site Forsmark

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Follin, Sven (SF GeoLogic AB, Taeby (Sweden))

    2008-12-15

    The Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) has conducted site investigations at two different locations, the Forsmark and Laxemar-Simpevarp areas, with the objective of siting a final repository for spent nuclear fuel according to the KBS-3 concept. Site characterisation should provide all data required for an integrated evaluation of the suitability of the investigated site and an important component in the characterisation work is the development of a hydrogeological model. The hydrogeological model is used by repository engineering to design the underground facility and to develop a repository layout adapted to the site. It also provides input to the safety assessment. Another important use of the hydrogeological model is in the environmental impact assessment. This report presents the understanding of the hydrogeological conditions of the bedrock at Forsmark reached following the completion of the surface-based investigations and provides a summary of the bedrock hydrogeological model and the underlying data supporting its development. It constitutes the main reference on bedrock hydrogeology for the site descriptive model concluding the surface-based investigations at Forsmark, SDM-site, and is intended to describe the hydraulic properties and hydrogeological conditions of the bedrock at the site and to give the information essential for demonstrating understanding

  8. Site locality identification study: Hanford Site. Volume II. Data cataloging

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1980-07-01

    Data compilation and cataloging for the candidate site locality identification study were conducted in order to provide a retrievable data cataloging system for the present siting study and future site evaluation and licensng processes. This task occurred concurrently with and also independently of other tasks of the candidate site locality identification study. Work in this task provided the data utilized primarily in the development and application of screening and ranking processes to identify candidate site localities on the Hanford Site. The overall approach included two steps: (1) data acquisition and screening; and (2) data compilation and cataloging. Data acquisition and screening formed the basis for preliminary review of data sources with respect to their probable utilization in the candidate site locality identification study and review with respect to the level of completeness and detail of the data. The important working assumption was that the data to be used in the study be based on existing and available published and unpublished literature. The data compilation and cataloging provided the basic product of the Task; a retrievable data cataloging system in the form of an annotated reference list and key word index and an index of compiled data. The annotated reference list and key word index are cross referenced and can be used to trace and retrieve the data sources utilized in the candidate site locality identification study

    This appendix to the ''Nevada Test Site Environmental Report 2005'', dated October 2006 (DOE/NV/11718--1214; DOE/NV/25946--007) expands on the general description of the Nevada Test Site (NTS) presented in the Introduction. Included are subsections that summarize the site?s geological, hydrological, climatological, and ecological setting. The cultural resources of the NTS are also presented. The subsections are meant to aid the reader in understanding the complex physical and biological environment of the NTS. An adequate knowledge of the site's environment is necessary to assess the environmental impacts of new projects, design and implement environmental monitoring activities for current site operations, and assess the impacts of site operations on the public residing in the vicinity of the NTS. The NTS environment contributes to several key features of the site which afford protection to the inhabitants of adjacent areas from potential exposure to radioactivity or other contaminants resulting from NTS operations. These key features include the general remote location of the NTS, restricted access, extended wind transport times, the great depths to slow-moving groundwater, little or no surface water, and low population density. This appendix complements the annual summary of monitoring program activities and dose assessments presented in the main body of this report

  13. Analysis of ILRS Site Ties

    Science.gov (United States)

    Husson, V. S.; Long, J. L.; Pearlman, M.

    2001-12-01

    By the end of 2000, 94% of ILRS stations had completed station and site information forms (i.e. site logs). These forms contain six types of information. These six categories include site identifiers, contact information, approximate coordinates, system configuration history, system ranging capabilities, and local survey ties. The ILRS Central Bureau, in conjunction with the ILRS Networks and Engineering Working Group, has developed procedures to quality control site log contents. Part of this verification entails data integrity checks of local site ties and is the primary focus of this paper. Local survey ties are critical to the combination of space geodetic network coordinate solutions (i.e. GPS, SLR, VLBI, DORIS) of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). Approximately 90% of active SLR sites are collocated with at least one other space geodetic technique. The process used to verify these SLR ties, at collocated sites, is identical to the approach used in ITRF2000. Local vectors (X, Y, Z) from each ILRS site log are differenced from its corresponding ITRF2000 position vectors (i.e. no transformations). These X, Y, and Z deltas are converted into North, East, and Up. Any deltas, in any component, larger than 5 millimeter is flagged for investigation. In the absence of ITRF2000 SLR positions, CSR positions were used. To further enhance this comparison and to fill gaps in information, local ties contained in site logs from the other space geodetic services (i.e. IGS, IVS, IDS) were used in addition to ITRF2000 ties. Case studies of two collocated sites (McDonald/Ft. Davis and Hartebeeshtoek) will be explored in-depth. Recommendations on how local site surveys should be conducted and how this information should be managed will also be presented.

    1995-06-01

    This section of the 1994 Hanford Site Environmental Report discusses the Site mission and provides general information about the site. The U.S. DOE has established a new mission for Hanford including: Management of stored wastes, environmental restoration, research and development, and development of new technologies. The Hanford Reservation is located in south central Washington State just north of the confluence of the Snake and Yakima Rivers with the Columbia River. The approximately 1,450 square kilometers which comprises the Hanford Site, with restricted public access, provides a buffer for the smaller areas within the site which have historically been used for the production of nuclear materials, radioactive waste storage, and radioactive waste disposal.

    Since the days of the Manhattan Project of World War II, the economic well being of the Tri-Cities (Pasco, Kennewick, and Richland) of Washington State has been tied to the US Department of Energy missions at the nearby Hanford Site. As missions at the Site changed, so did the economic vitality of the region. The Hanford Site is now poised to complete its final mission, that of environmental restoration. When restoration is completed, the Site may be closed and the effect on the local economy will be devastating if action is not taken now. To that end, economic diversification and transition are being planned. To facilitate the process, the Hanford Site will become a sustainable development demonstration project

  3. Nuclear power: Siting and safety

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Openshaw, S.

    1986-01-01

    By 2030, half, or even two-thirds, of all electricity may be generated by nuclear power. Major reactor accidents are still expected to be rare occurrences, but nuclear safety is largely a matter of faith. Terrorist attacks, sabotage, and human error could cause a significant accident. Reactor siting can offer an additional, design-independent margin of safety. Remote geographical sites for new plants would minimize health risks, protect the industry from negative changes in public opinion concerning nuclear energy, and improve long-term public acceptance of nuclear power. U.K. siting practices usually do not consider the contribution to safety that could be obtained from remote sites. This book discusses the present trends of siting policies of nuclear power and their design-independent margin of safety

  4. Old radioactive waste storage sites

    Le présent article a pour objet d'analyser la fonction maintenance au sein de la division ST. Seront d'abord évoqués, les principaux facteurs qui ont marqué ladite fonction tels que sa décentralisation au niveau de chaque groupe, organisé par spécialité, et l'externalisation des activités jugées non stratégiques. En rapprochant la fonction maintenance de la fonction études et travaux, la décentralisation a sans doute permis de développer, par spécialité, un niveau de compétence accru. La sous-traitance de plus en plus importante de nos activités et les recrutements à un niveau plus élevé ont permis de faire face aux diminutions de personnel CERN. Cependant, ces aspects positifs s'accompagnent d'effets pervers tels que le manque de communication entre les services de maintenance de chaque spécialité, la disparité des approches dans la façon de gérer les activités et d'organiser le travail, et une difficulté à analyser globalement les performances des contractants.

    Mining activities are carried out by the older man and have provided resources, since ancient times, for their development and progress. With the discovery of fire will show the first metals that have marked the civilizations of copper, bronze and iron, and is the prehistory of the Stone Age tools that man has made from the exploitation of quarries first. The industrial revolution of the nineteenth century is linked to coal and steel, and could not conceiver of todays society without oil and gas, without silicon and coltan. But the mines are often aggressive and, despite their need and what they contribute to the development are answered by the societies where are made. during recent years there has been growing international efforts to try to make the minimum requirements of sustainable exploitation (European Directives, GMI, GRI, etc.) In AENOR, and within the Technical Committee of Standardization 22 Mining and Explosives, chaired by AITEMIN, was established the subcommittee 3, chaired by IGME, where, with the participation of all stake holders, have developed some standards on sustainable mining management sustainable mining that will be a tool available to mining companies to demonstrate their sustainable use to Society.

  20. Siting guidelines and their role in repository site selection

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hanlon, C.L.

    1985-01-01

    The first requirement of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act was for the Secretary of Energy to issue general guidelines for siting repositories. The guidelines were to specify detailed geologic considerations that would be the primary criteria for the selection of sites in various host rocks, as well as factors that would qualify or disqualify any site from development as a repository. These guidelines were clearly intended to provide not only the framework for the siting program but also the stimulus for establishing effective communication and consultation among the parties involved in the program. The Act further required that the guidelines be a factor in the development of all future decision documents of the Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management, including the environmental assessments that would accompany the nomination of sites for characterization, the site-characterization plans that are to be prepared before the sinking of exploratory shafts at any candidate site, and the environmental impact statement that is to support the recommendation of a site for development as a repository. More than two years after its passage, the intention of the Act for the guidelines has been realized. Concurred in by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on June 22, 1984, and issued by the Department in November 1984, the guidelines include postclosure technical guidelines that apply to conditions governing the long-term performance of the repository system; preclosure technical guidelines that apply to conditions governing the siting, construction, operation, and closure of the repository; and system guidelines whose objective is to ensure that the regulatory requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission are met

    A computing architecture is a framework for making decisions about the implementation of computer technology and the supporting infrastructure. Because of the size, diversity, and amount of resources dedicated to computing at the Savannah River Site (SRS), there must be an overall strategic plan that can be followed by the thousands of site personnel who make decisions daily that directly affect the SRS computing environment and impact the site`s production and business systems. This plan must address the following requirements: There must be SRS-wide standards for procurement or development of computing systems (hardware and software). The site computing organizations must develop systems that end users find easy to use. Systems must be put in place to support the primary function of site information workers. The developers of computer systems must be given tools that automate and speed up the development of information systems and applications based on computer technology. This document describes a proposal for a site-wide computing architecture that addresses the above requirements. In summary, this architecture is standards-based data-driven, and workstation-oriented with larger systems being utilized for the delivery of needed information to users in a client-server relationship.

    To help verify effective protection of public safety and preservation of the environment, Sandia National Laboratories (SNL)/California maintains an extensive, ongoing environmental monitoring program. This program monitors all significant airborne and liquid effluents and the environment at the SNL/California site perimeter. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) performs off-site environmental monitoring for both sites. These monitoring efforts ensure that emission controls are effective in preventing contamination of the environment. As part of SNL/California's Environmental Monitoring Program, an environmental surveillance system measures the possible presence of radioactive and hazardous materials in ambient air, surface water, groundwater, sewage, soil, vegetation, and locally produced food-stuffs. The program also includes an extensive environmental dosimetry program, which measures external radiation levels around the Livermore site and nearby vicinity. Each year, the results of the Environmental Monitoring Program are published in this report, the Site Environmental Report. This executive summary focuses on impacts to the environment and estimated radiation doses to the public from site emissions. Chapter 3, open-quotes Compliance Summary,close quotes reviews the site's various environmental protection activities and compliance status, with applicable environmental regulations. The effluent monitoring and environmental surveillance results for 1996 show that SNL/California operations had no harmful effects on the environment or the public. 37 figs., 12 tabs

    1988-01-01

    This paper describes a management strategy for HLW repository site characterization which is aimed at producing an optimal characterization trajectory for site suitability and licensing evaluations. The core feature of the strategy is a matrix of alternative performance targets and alternative information-level targets which can be used to allocate and justify program effort. Strategies for work concerning evaluation of expected and disrupted repository performance are distinguished, and the need for issue closure criteria is discussed

    The main process used in the bioremediation of contaminated sites is the microbial degradation and mineralization of pollutants. The bioengineering processes developed and applied by the company to optimize the microbial degradation are described and full scale case studies are reviewed. In each case, the site characteristics (type of contaminants, nature of soil, geographic location, etc.) and the results obtained are presented. The selected projects cover different bioremediation techniques (biopile, bioventing and air sparging), different contaminants (PAH, PCP, hydrocarbons) and different types of industrial sites (former gas work plant, petroleum depot, refinery, etc.)

  10. Salmon Site Remedial Investigation Report

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1999-01-01

    This Salmon Site Remedial Investigation Report provides the results of activities initiated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to determine if contamination at the Salmon Site poses a current or future risk to human health and the environment. These results were used to develop and evaluate a range of risk-based remedial alternatives. Located in Lamar County, Mississippi, the Salmon Site was used by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (predecessor to the DOE) between 1964 and 1970 for two nuclear and two gas explosions conducted deep underground in a salt dome. The testing resulted in the release of radionuclides into the salt dome. During reentry drilling and other site activities, liquid and solid wastes containing radioactivity were generated resulting in surface soil and groundwater contamination. Most of the waste and contaminated soil and water were disposed of in 1993 during site restoration either in the cavities left by the tests or in an injection well. Other radioactive wastes were transported to the Nevada Test Site for disposal. Nonradioactive wastes were disposed of in pits at the site and capped with clean soil and graded. The preliminary investigation showed residual contamination in the Surface Ground Zero mud pits below the water table. Remedial investigations results concluded the contaminant concentrations detected present no significant risk to existing and/or future land users, if surface institutional controls and subsurface restrictions are maintained. Recent sampling results determined no significant contamination in the surface or shallow subsurface. The test cavity resulting from the experiments is contaminated and cannot be economically remediated with existing technologies. The ecological sampling did not detect biological uptake of contaminants in the plants or animals sampled. Based on the current use of the Salmon Site, the following remedial actions were identified to protect both human health and the environment: (1) the

  11. Confidence assessment. Site-descriptive modelling SDM-Site Laxemar

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2009-06-01

    The objective of this report is to assess the confidence that can be placed in the Laxemar site descriptive model, based on the information available at the conclusion of the surface-based investigations (SDM-Site Laxemar). In this exploration, an overriding question is whether remaining uncertainties are significant for repository engineering design or long-term safety assessment and could successfully be further reduced by more surface-based investigations or more usefully by explorations underground made during construction of the repository. Procedures for this assessment have been progressively refined during the course of the site descriptive modelling, and applied to all previous versions of the Forsmark and Laxemar site descriptive models. They include assessment of whether all relevant data have been considered and understood, identification of the main uncertainties and their causes, possible alternative models and their handling, and consistency between disciplines. The assessment then forms the basis for an overall confidence statement. The confidence in the Laxemar site descriptive model, based on the data available at the conclusion of the surface based site investigations, has been assessed by exploring: - Confidence in the site characterization data base, - remaining issues and their handling, - handling of alternatives, - consistency between disciplines and - main reasons for confidence and lack of confidence in the model. Generally, the site investigation database is of high quality, as assured by the quality procedures applied. It is judged that the Laxemar site descriptive model has an overall high level of confidence. Because of the relatively robust geological model that describes the site, the overall confidence in the Laxemar Site Descriptive model is judged to be high, even though details of the spatial variability remain unknown. The overall reason for this confidence is the wide spatial distribution of the data and the consistency between

    1996-07-01

    The Site Requirements (SR) provide bases for identification of candidate host sites for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) and for the generation of data regarding potential actual locations for the facilities. The SR supplements the NIF Functional Requirements (FR) with information needed for preparation of responses to queries for input to HQ DOE site evaluation. The queries are to include both documents and explicit requirements for the potential host site responses. The Sr includes information extracted from the NIF FR (for convenience), data based on design approaches, and needs for physical and organization infrastructure for a fully operational NIF. The FR and SR describe requirements that may require new construction or may be met by use or modification of existing facilities. The SR do not establish requirements for NIF design or construction project planning. The SR document does not constitute an element of the NIF technical baseline
