  18. Wind Ressources in Complex Terrain investigated with Synchronized Lidar Measurements

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mann, J.; Menke, R.; Vasiljevic, N.

    2017-12-01

    The Perdigao experiment was performed by a number of European and American universities in Portugal 2017, and it is probably the largest field campaign focussing on wind energy ressources in complex terrain ever conducted. 186 sonic anemometers on 50 masts, 20 scanning wind lidars and a host of other instruments were deployed. The experiment is a part of an effort to make a new European wind atlas. In this presentation we investigate whether scanning the wind speed over ridges in this complex terrain with multiple Doppler lidars can lead to an efficient mapping of the wind resources at relevant positions. We do that by having pairs of Doppler lidars scanning 80 m above the ridges in Perdigao. We compare wind resources obtained from the lidars and from the mast-mounted sonic anemometers at 80 m on two 100 m masts, one on each of the two ridges. In addition, the scanning lidar measurements are also compared to profiling lidars on the ridges. We take into account the fact that the profiling lidars may be biased due to the curvature of the streamlines over the instrument, see Bingol et al, Meteorolog. Z. vol. 18, pp. 189-195 (2009). We also investigate the impact of interruptions of the lidar measurements on the estimated wind resource. We calculate the relative differences of wind along the ridge from the lidar measurements and compare those to the same obtained from various micro-scale models. A particular subject investigated is how stability affects the wind resources. We often observe internal gravity waves with the scanning lidars during the night and we quantify how these affect the relative wind speed on the ridges.

    Full Text Available [english] Evolution of case-based teaching (CBT is influenced by student’s specifications and also by improvement of computer-based e-learning systems. In the present single center study of the University of Saarland Medical Center the medical students in the third year compared two case-based e-learning systems. CAMPUS-Classic-Player is an open system with almost unrestricted decision trees whereas the CAMPUS-Card-Player represents an educational structured e-learning platform. Learning from patients and also learning from students will be introduced as our pivotal principle for development of new e-learning strategies.A significantly better evaluation was found for the more structured CAMPUS-Card-Player with respect to profile, clarity, didactics, learning effects, and relevance for exam preparation. The student’s intentions for CBT were clearly focused on usability for preparation of future exams which can be better achieved by the help of more structured e-learning systems. The time to process and answer the cases was about for both players. We therefore propose that the time schedule for most users is limited per case irrespective of the complexity of decision trees, cases or e-learning systems. This remains to be mentioned for the design of future cases.

    The new electronic stability program (ESP) offered by Mercedes-Benz as a world novelty in March 1995 is the consequent further development of the anti-lock braking system and the anti-slip control. An improved assessment of the handling properties by a steering wheel sensor, a yaw velocity sensor, a brake pressure sensor and a hydraulic system that brakes each wheel individually and is controlled by a complex logic allow the supervision and the active control of the cross-dynamic handling properties up to limiting ranges. The handling of the vehicle in critical situations (e.g. strong oversteering or understeering) has been considerably improved. (orig.) [Deutsch] Das neue elektronische-Stabilitaets-Programm (ESP), von Mercedes-Benz ab Maerz 1995 als Weltneuheit angeboten, stellt eine konsequente Weiterentwicklung des Antiblockier-Bremssystems (ABS) und der Antriebsschlupfregelung (ASR) dar. Eine erweiterte Fahrzustandserfassung durch Lenkradwinkel-, Giergeschwindigkeit- und Bremsdrucksensor, eine Hydraulik, die jedes Rad individuell abbremsen kann, angesteuert durch eine komplexe Regelungslogik, erlauben erstmals eine Ueberwachung und aktive Regelung des querdynamischen Fahrzustands bis in den Grenzbereich. Die Beherrschbarkeit des Fahrzeugs wird in kritischen Situationen (z.B. starkes Ueber- oder Untersteuern) entscheidend verbessert. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Les réserves prouvées d'hydrocarbures liquides sont aujourd'hui évaluées, suivant les sources, entre 950 et 1 000 milliards de barils. Leur durée de vie, au rythme actuel de la production mondiale, est d'environ 41 à 45 ans, soit bien supérieure à celles qui étaient couramment données en 1970 et 1980. Toutefois, cette abondance des ressources ne garantit pas obligatoirement la sécurité des approvisionnements pétroliers pour tous les pays. Il importe de souligner que les réserves pétrolières sont géographiquement inégalement réparties et que réserves et productions sont actuellement le fait des champs géants (champs ayant plus de 500 millions de barils de réserves initiales. Si l'approvisionnement pétrolier semble assuré pour les trente à quarante années à venir, quelles sont les perspectives au-delà de 2020-2030 ? L'augmentation des réserves prouvées au cours des dix à vingt années qui viennent de s'écouler n'est qu'apparente. Cet accroissement, après 1986, est essentiellement dû à des révisions et à des extensions plutôt qu'à de nouvelles découvertes. L'article, présenté ici, s'efforce d'inventorier et d'évaluer quelles pourraient être les nouvelles sources de pétrole : bruts conventionnels (brut récupérable compte tenu d'un prix au baril de l'ordre de 20 US$ et d'un taux de récupération voisin de 30 % restant à découvrir, ressources en huile issues d'une amélioration du taux de récupération, ressources résultant de l'exploitation de zones nouvelles (l'offshore profond, bruts de types non conventionnels tels que bruts extra-lourds, sables asphaltiques, huiles de schiste, et hydrocarbures liquides obtenus grâce aux méthodes de récupération assistée par voie chimique.

Without international cooperation, coordination of all activities and use of modern and proven technologies for production of hydrocarbons, their transport, efficient safety and environmental protection tools the realization of such a project would be questionable. Le plateau continental arctique est considéré comme la zone comportant le potentiel inexploré le plus important tant en termes d’huile et de gaz qu’en ressources en hydrocarbures non conventionnels tels que les hydrates de gaz. En dépit d’une vision courante selon laquelle l’Arctique possède des ressources abondantes en hydrocarbures, des débats se poursuivent sur le potentiel énergétique de cette région. Les lignes directrices de telles discussions reposent sur la géopolitique, les questions environnementales, l’évaluation et la délimitation des ressources arctiques, la technologie disponible pour le succès de leur exploitation et les perspectives d’évolution de la demande en énergie. La partie russe est reconnue comme étant la plus importante concernant les ressources en huile et gaz des nations arctiques. Toutefois, le manque d’informations et de données géologiques disponibles engendre une incertitude sur le rôle futur de l’Arctique russe comme principal fournisseur d’énergie dans la seconde partie du XXIe siècle. Une incertitude supplémentaire repose

    Full Text Available Der Fremdsprachenunterricht in Finnland befindet sich gerade in einer Umbruchphase, denn mit der Einführung neuer Lehrpläne im Jahr 2016 werden Verfahren der Mehrsprachigkeitsdidaktik in Zukunft eine zentrale Rolle spielen. In diesem Beitrag wird untersucht, ob und wie finnische Universitätsstudierende, die selbst von einer eher monolingual ausgerichteten Lerntradition geprägt sind, ihr mehrsprachiges Repertoire als Ressource beim Lernen weiterer Fremdsprachen sehen. Zu diesem Zweck wurde eine Befragung unter Lehramtsstudierenden der Fächer Anglistik und Skandinavistik, die Germanistik als Nebenfach studieren möchten, durchgeführt. Die Analyse zeigt, dass die Studierenden zwar mehrheitlich positive Einstellungen gegenüber Mehrsprachigkeit aufweisen, dass es aber Entwicklungsbedarf im Hinblick auf Sprachbewusstheit, multilinguale Fähigkeiten und bei den Einstellungen gegenüber Sprachmischungen gibt. Foreign language education in Finland is currently undergoing a period of change, as the introduction of new curricula in 2016 will lead to a central role of multilingualism in teaching. This article examines whether and how Finnish university students, who themselves were influenced by a more monolingual learning tradition, consider their multilingual repertoire as a resource for learning other foreign languages. For this purpose, a survey was conducted among teacher students of English and Swedish, who would like to study German as a minor. The analysis shows that while the majority of students have positive attitudes towards multilingualism, there is a need for development in terms of language awareness, multilingual skills, and attitudes towards language mixes.

    Full Text Available La préservation des eaux souterraines et des rivières est un enjeu majeur pour les opérateurs en charge de l'alimentation en eau potable sur un territoire. Eau de Paris, l'opérateur public qui produit et distribue l'eau dans Paris mobilise de nombreux dispositifs pour protéger et restaurer la qualité de l'eau. Depuis plus de vingt ans, il conduit notamment une politique de maîtrise foncière des terrains ruraux situés dans les zones vulnérables des aires d’alimentation des captages, qui vise principalement à limiter les risques de pollution des nappes, mais également à servir de modèle et de levier pour des pratiques agricoles favorisant la préservation de la ressource en eau.

    Full Text Available Les réserves prouvées en hydrocarbures conventionnels s'élèvent dans le monde à 90 milliards de tonnes de pétrole et 78 000 milliards de m3 de gaz, ce qui représente respectivement 30 et 50 ans au taux actuel de production. Les réserves et ressources supplémentaires à découvrir peuvent être considérées comme 2,3 à 2,4 plus importantes mais ces valeurs sont entachées d'une forte incertitude. II existe de grandes ressources en hydrocarbures non conventionnels, mais elles sont coûteuses à mettre en oeuvre et demandent surtout des investissements considérables. On peut prévoir que la production mondiale de pétrole atteindra son maximum vers 1990. Proven reserves of conventional hydrocarbons in the world amount to 90 billion tons of oil and 78 000 billion cubic meters of gas, respectively representing 30 and 50 years of supply at the present rate of production. Further reserves and resources yet to be discovered may be considered to be 2. 3 to 2. 4 times greater, but there is a high degree of uncertainty in these figures. Extensive resources of unconventional hydrocarbons exist, but they are costly to implement and, above all, require considerable investments. World petroleum production can be predicted to reach its maximum around 1990.

    Full Text Available L'Amérique du Sud en général est mal pourvue en ressources de charbon puisqu'elle ne représente que 0,5 % des ressources mondiales. Cependant, avec la crise actuelle de l'énergie et le développement rapide de l'industrie sidérurgique locale, tous les pays possesseurs de charbon s'appliquent à faire des recherches tendant à évaluer à sa juste valeur le potentiel charbonnier comme la source d'énergie la plus traditionnelle et la matière première irremplaçable pour la production du coke métallurgique. Dans cet article, il sera question des ressources d'Argentine, du Brésil, du Chili, de Colombie, du Pérou et du Venezuela, seuls pays qui recèlent des réserves reconnues. Les principaux gisements sud-américains se rencontrent dans les sédiments gondwaniens, crétacés, et certains probablement déposés dans des milieux deltaïques et lacustres, avec majorité de charbons bitumineux et sub-bitumineux de haute volatilité. La Colombie est le pays qui a les plus grandes ressources et toutes les catégories de charbon y compris ceux cokéfiables. Du fait que les diverses évaluations nationales ne sont pas comparables, compte tenu de ce qu'elles sont basées sur des concepts géologiques et technologiques avec des niveaux de pronostics et de certitudes variables, l'auteur, pour éviter une plus grande confusion, n'exprimera pas la grandeur des ressources en chiffres absolus. Generally speaking, South America is poor in coal resources, with only 0,50% of the world's supplies. Nonetheless, with the present energy crisis and the rapid development of the local steel industry, all countries possessing coal deposits are undertaking research to evaluate accurately their potential resources of coal, the most traditional energy source and the indispensable raw material for the production of foundry coke. In this paper will be discussed the resources of those South Americon countries known to have coal reserves: Argentina, Brazil, Chile

J. Levy l'estime pour 1990 à 68,8 millions de bbl/d ; - l'équilibre offre/demande n'est pas réalisé à court terme et il faut dès maintenant, envisager un équilibre de légère pénurie à moyen et long terme ; - la contribution du gaz naturel et des autres hydrocarbures au rétablissement de l'équilibre subit divers handicaps de coûts, de difficulté de transport oude délais de mise en oeuvre ; - ceci implique que le prix du brut ne peut que croître en valeur réelle et que l'exploration-production et le développement d'hydrocarbures non conventionnels constituent le challenge majeur de la prochaine décennie ; - la solution à moyen terme passe par le développement des productions des pays de l'OPEP à condition de leur offrir des développements sociaux et industriels compatibles avec leurs besoins réels.

    Au Tchad, le réseau d'aires protégées couvre près de 10,2% de la surface du pays et reste globalement représentatif de toute la diversité des écosystèmes de la région. Cependant, ce réseau n'est pas constitué d'écosystèmes intacts car de nombreuses altérations y ont été apportés (certaines espèces sont déjà au seuil critique d'extinction (Addax, gazelle dama, lamantin), voire ont disparu (Rhinocéros noir et blanc, Oryx)) surtout dans les parcs nationaux. Ce qui nous amène à nous interroger sur la dynamique des ressources naturelles et le degré de conservation du parc national de Manda? Une évaluation de la diversité biologique et des ressources hydrographiques de 1951 à 1999 sur la base de la bibliographie existante, de la carte topographique de 1956, des images satellitaires Landsat 5 et 7 TM et ETM+ de 2 périodes (1986, 1999), complétée par des interviews semi-structurés et des transects sur le terrain, permettra de mieux appréhender la dynamique des ressources et les actions de conservation de la biodiversité réalisées à cet effet. Les résultats montrent une dynamique progressive de la faune de 1951 à 1970, puis une dynamique régressive de 1970 à 1989. Après cette tumultueuse période, un repeuplement du parc s'opère de 1989 à 2002. Par contre, la flore est relativement bien conservée avec quelques cours d'eau, des mares, champs et plantations. Et cela grâce aux multiples projets de conservation de la biodiversité. La promotion de l'écotourisme serait une alternative au développement durable de ce parc.

    Nous présentons une méthode automatique d'importation de données mise en oeuvre au Service de l'Information Scientifique, SIS, du CERN. Ce programme informatique, baptisé Uploader, permet d'importer dans le catalogue de la bibliothèque du CERN des notices bibliographiques et le texte intégral de documents provenant de diverses sources sur Internet. Ces bases de données concernent la littérature grise en physique et dans les disciplines voisines (par exemple DOE, KEK, Math-Doc, TipTop, etc.). Cette politique d'acquisition, qui met en avant le traitement informatisé des ressources électroniques, soulève quelques réflexions sur l'augmentation du nombre de documents collectés et sur l'élargissement des domaines traités. Le souci constant d'enrichir ces données et d'en faciliter l'accès aux utilisateurs, sur un mode hypertextuel, conduit à une évolution des métiers de la gestion documentaire.

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Après avoir montré l'importance des réserves de pétrole non conventionnel et l'enjeu que représente pour l'humanité la mise en exploitation de ces ressources, cette étude examine les axes actuels de recherches et l'état de la technologie pour chacune des sources de nouveau pétrole retenues : mers profondes, récupération assistée, huiles lourdes et sables asphaltiques, schistes bitumineux et conversion du charbon. Il en ressort que si les ressources de nouveau pétrole sont considérables, leur mise en valeur nécessitera des investissements très lourds, et le coût du pétrole ainsi produit restera élevé, comparé au coût actuel du pétrole conventionnel. Compte tenu des délais de mise en oeuvre, des problèmes technologiques restant à résoudre et de la nécessité de réaliser des pilotes semi-industriels très coûteux pour expérimenter les nouvelles techniques, il convient de consentir sans attendre un effort important de recherche technologique, impliquant un accroissement sensible des budgets de R&D, mais aussi des incitations financières appropriées. Cet effort de mise au point de technologies adaptées à ces sources d'hydrocarbures sera favorisé par les nouvelles conditions économiques créées par la rareté relative des réserves d'hydrocarbures classiques, à condition que les Etats, par leur politique, favorisent la production de ressources d'hydrocarbures à coût élevé. A l'heure actuelle, on peut évaluer la production de pétrole difficile à environ 100 Mt, l'essentiel étant réalisé dans le domaine des huiles lourdes et de la récupération assistée ; on estime que la production de nouveau pétrole pourrait représenter 200 à 350 Mt en 1990 et se situer entre 600 et 900 Mt en 2000, soit 5 à 8 % de la production de pétrole en 1990 et 15 à 20 % en 2000. Un tel objectif nécessiterait des investissements de l'ordre de 500 à 750 milliards de dollars 1980. After pointing out the importance of

    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.

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.

  5. Faut-il brûler les dictionnaires ? Ou comment les ressources numériques ont révolutionné les recherches en morphologie

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Namer Fiammetta

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Pour mener leurs études, les morphologues, et, singulièrement parmi eux, ceux qui traitent du lexique construit, sont pris entre deux tensions : utiliser les données issues des dictionnaires, réputées fiables parce que passées au travers du crible de l’institutionnalisation, ou se fonder sur des données authentiques, produites dans des situations écologiques. Bien qu’inspirant encore de la défiance, le Web devient alors la ressource par excellence. Les ressources numérisées telles que les archives de journaux ou les bases de données de textes littéraires constituent un moyen terme entre ces deux pratiques : elles permettent d’effectuer des recherches basées sur l’usage, tout en offrant la garantie d’une certaine tenue linguistique de la part des scripteurs, la plupart du temps identifiables. Dans cette communication, nous nous demanderons si les dictionnaires méritent la confiance que continuent de leur octroyer les morphologues ou, plus exactement, si une morphologie qui puise ses données dans les seuls dictionnaires peut encore avoir cours au 21e siècle. Pour engager cette discussion, nous commencerons par poser la question de l’existence, pour un lexème construit. Nous exposerons ensuite ce que constitue une morphologie basée sur l’usage, puis donnerons un aperçu des types de recherches que permettent de réaliser les ressources non dictionnairiques. La conclusion sera que, si les dictionnaires continuent d'avoir droit de cité dans la panoplie du morphologue, une morphologie uniquement basée sur les données qu'ils contiennent passerait outre de nombreuses recherches, plus fructueuses les unes que les autres.

    Full Text Available [english] A great number of learning objects is available for graduate and continuing medical education. Nevertheless, it is not known how well the range of available learning objects covers the needs of the various medical fields. To get an idea of this, the content of two catalogs of learning objects (LRSMed and KELDAmed was compared with the study regulations of the medical faculty of the University of Duisburg-Essen on the one hand and with the 2006 directory of certified medical specialists on the other hand. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient was used as concordance measure in addition to a qualitative assessment. Correlation coefficients of 0.495 (LRSMed and 0.510 (KELDAmed show a relevant concordance with study regulations, while correlation coefficients of 0.300 and –0.182 reveal a worse concordance with continuing medical education. Therefore, the offers for graduate medical education correspond well with the medical fields, based on number of hours per semester per course. The absolute number of 1,822 learning objects from LRSMed and 1,769 from KELDAmed is excellent as well. The gap for continuing medical education can now be closed by means of funding from professional organizations and medical faculties and through healthcare policies.

    The purpose of the invention is to create a controlled and electronically commutated DC motor, so that the braking current regulator does not act with the frequency motor current regulator, where an additional switch is not required to decouple the braking current transistor while running, and where the reference value of braking current need not be greater than the reference value of motor current. According to the invention, this problem is solved by a connection, by which, while running, the braking current regulator is interlocked out by means of the output signal of the motor current regulator. A cheap diode and the associated wiring are all that is required for the interlock.

    occurs in liquid, pure elements. The goal is to build up a resonance between the static structure and the electronic system, which is associated with an average valence of 1.5 electrons per atom. The structures of the investigated amorphous Al-rare earth alloys are also correlated over large concentration ranges with an average valence of 1.5 electrons per atom. [German] Der Einfluss der d-Zustaende der Uebergangsmetalle auf die Strukturbildung in amorphen Legierungen ist bisher nur unzureichend verstanden. Die vorliegende Arbeit hat zum Ziel, zusaetzliche Beitraege zum Verstaendnis am Beispiel binaerer amorpher Aluminiumlegierungen mit Uebergangsmetallen zu erarbeiten. Speziell standen dabei Legierungen mit einer Untergruppe der Uebergangsmetalle, den Metallen der Seltenen Erden, im Vordergrund. Im Rahmen der vorliegenden Arbeit wurden Schichten von Al-Ce im Bereich von 15at%Ce-80at%Ce durch sequentielle Flash-Verdampfung bei 4,2K im Hochvakuum hergestellt und durch Messungen des elektrischen Widerstands und des Hall-Effekts elektronisch, sowie durch Transmissionselektronenbeugung strukturell charakterisiert. Ergaenzend wurden Untersuchungen der Plasmaresonanz mittels Elektronenenergieverlustspektroskopie durchgefuehrt. Im Bereich 25at%Ce-60at%Ce entstanden homogen amorphe Proben. Besonders die Strukturuntersuchungen wurden durch eine Oxidation des Materials erschwert. Der Einfluss der Ce-4f-Elektronen manifestiert sich vor allem im Tieftemperatur- und Magnetowiderstand, die beide vom Kondo-Effekt dominiert werden. Der Hall-Effekt in Al-Ce wird im gesamten untersuchten Temperaturbereich (2K-320K) von anomalen Anteilen dominiert, welche skew-scattering-Effekten, ebenfalls aufgrund der Ce-4f-Elektronen, zugeschrieben werden. Bis hinunter zu 2K trat keine makroskopische magnetische Ordnung auf. Im Bereich 2K-20K wird auf das Vorliegen von Clustern geordneter magnetischer Momente geschlossen. Fuer T>20K tritt paramagnetisches Verhalten auf. Hinsichtlich der strukturellen

    Full Text Available Depuis dix ans, le bois-énergie se développe dans les territoires alpins, sous l’impulsion de politiques volontaristes. Face à l'épuisement prochain des produits connexes de scierie, déjà largement utilisés dans la papeterie, la panneauterie et la granulation, la plaquette forestière est amenée à se développer pour des usages industriels ou locaux. Il s’agit d’une opportunité pour les territoires et les forêts alpines, dont la vulnérabilité doit cependant être prise en compte dans la délicate conciliation d'objectifs économiques et environnementaux. L’étude des différentes politiques et dispositifs montre des approches très différentes.  Cela peut générer des tensions sur la ressource et donner lieux à des comportements contradictoires avec le développement d’une énergie dite verte : allongements des distances de transports et donc des émissions de polluants, dégradation de l’environnement et de la multifonctionnalité des forêts, etc.

    Full Text Available Les performances du régime irakien tout au long de la crise de 1991 ont suscité deux types de lectures opposées. Pour le sens commun, il s’agissait d’une défaite incontestable. Pourtant, Saddam Hussein, de son côté, l’a qualifiée de « Mère des Batailles » (Umm al-Ma‘ârik et de triomphe absolu. Une telle exagération est plus que le simple produit de l’imagination d’un despote. Il le pensait en effet si bien qu’il a, en 2003, élaboré sa stratégie de défense sur le modèle de 1991. Plus significativement, la réponse du régime aux défis qu’il avait lui-même fabriqués en envahissant le Koweit suggère que la crise de 1991 était elle-même la voie de sortie d’une crise plus structurelle à laquelle Saddam Hussein aurait eu toutes les chances de succomber. Cet article explore plusieurs aspects méconnus de ce moment historique. Premièrement, il relie les évènements de 1991 à la banqueroute économique, institutionnelle et symbolique du régime. Deuxièmement, il attire l’attention sur sa réponse complexe à la situation. Troisièmement, il analyse en détail la métamorphose du régime grâce aux ressources offertes par la crise, qui l’ont incité à perpétuer un « régime de crise », devenu la condition paradoxale de la stabilité du régime.

  3. Geophysical Well Logs Applied to Geothermal Resource Evaluation Application des diagraphies à l'évaluation des ressources géothermiques

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Well logging in the petroleum industry has been developed over five decades into a mature industry, whereas geothermal well logging is a relatively new enterprise. Fundamental differences also occur in the geologic environments and key objectives of both logging applications. Geothermal reservoirs are frequently in fractured igneous and metamorphic rocks, which contain hot water or stem at temperature exceeding 150°C. The discussion focuses on present day logging technology, geologic and reservoir engineering objectives, and qualitive and quantitative formation interpretation techniques for geothermal resource evaluation. Specific field case studies illustrate the interpretive state-of-the-art, including examples from the Geysers dry steam field in the Imperial Valley of California, hot water fields in California, Nevada, and Idaho, and the LASL Hot Dry Rock test project in the Valles Caldera of New Mexico. Les diagraphies dans les forages pétroliers ont atteint leur maturité, alors que le contrôle diagraphique des sondages géothermiques est une entreprise relativement nouvelle. Des différences fondamentales apparaissent aussi dans les environnements géologiques et dans les objectifs clés des deux types d'applications des diagraphies. Les réservoirs géothermiques se situent souvent dans les roches ignées ou métamorphiques fracturées qui contiennent de l'eau chaude ou de la vapeur à des températures dépassant 150 °C. L'exposé sera concentré sur les techniques actuelles d'enregistrements, les objectifs géologiques et liés à l'exploitation des réserves et sur les techniques qualitatives et quantitatives d'interprétation des formations pour l'évaluation des ressources géothermiques. Quelques cas particuliers illustrent l'état actuel des techniques d'interprétation avec des exemples pris dans le champ de vapeur sèche des geysers dans Imperial Valley de Californie, des champs d'eau chaude en Californie, Nevada et Idaho et

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.

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 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.

    2011-05-01

    Full Text Available Whereas gas production from unconventional reserves has greatly increased over the past decades, there is still a largely unexplored potential in the Paleozoic of Central Europe. For this area, the paper summarizes some important aspects of the geology of tight sandstone gas reservoirs, gas shales and coalbed methane. Tight sandstones with low permeabilities are especially present in the Permian (Rotliegend Formation of The Netherlands and northern Germany, but also in the underlying Carboniferous. There is already active production from some of these reservoirs. Further development greatly depends on understanding of gas charge as well as the regional distribution of porosity and permeability which in turn depend on facies and diagenesis. In contrast exploration for gas shales is just at the very beginning. Whereas Mesozoic shales in the southern Lower Saxony Basin have to be regarded as prime targets due to thickness, maturity and organic matter content, there are additional targets in the Mississippian, but also in older rocks. Currently an international gas shale research programme (Gas shales in Europe, GASH gathers relevant data for these units. Coalbed methane exploration started already about 20 years ago in the Ruhr Basin, but was not successful at that time due to small flow rates. On the other hand, production from abandoned coal mines provided substantial amounts of gas. Due to the abundance of coal seams and the suitable maturity conditions and gas contents, there is a high potential for future substantial coalbed methane in the area. Alors que l’extraction du gaz naturel des gisements non conventionnels a fortement augmenté ces dernières dizaines d’années, un large potentiel de ressources reste inexploré dans les couches paléozoïques de l’Europe Centrale.

  13. Electronic transport in graphene; Elektronischer Transport in Graphen

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Lohmann, Timm

    2010-06-08

    In 2004 graphene, a monolayer of carbon atoms, has been isolated as the first real two-dimensional solid by the group of A. Geim at the University of Manchester. Graphene's properties have been theoretically investigated since the 1950s. Until the successful preparation by Geim et al., graphene was suspected to be unstable under ambient conditions above 0 K (Mermin-Wagner theorem). Its two dimensionality and hexagonal lattice symmetry cause interesting novel properties and effects. At experimentally relevant energies, graphene has a linear band structure and charge carrier dynamics must be treated using Dirac's equation. Therefore charge carriers in graphene are called ''Dirac fermions''. Beside exotic effects like ''Klein tunneling'' an unconventional quantum Hall effect (QHE) can be observed with a Hall conductance quantized in units of 2e{sup 2}/h, 6e{sup 2}/h, 10e{sup 2}/h, 14e{sup 2}/h. As a starting point for in-depth transport measurements the processing of graphene field effect transistors (GFETs) has been developed and optimized, based on the pioneering work by Novoselov et al. The optimized process provides samples with carrier mobilities up to 16000 cm{sup 2}/Vs and a well defined Hall geometry. These samples are used to investigate external influences on the electronic properties of graphene. Among those influences molecular adsorbates are responsible for various effects of freshly prepared graphene samples e.g. an intrinsic p-doping, a mobility asymmetry of electrons and holes, the so called ''minimal conductivity'' and a field effect hysteresis at room temperature. In collaboration with the group of A. Yacoby (Harvard) density fluctuations in the vicinity of the Dirac point (''electron-hole puddles'') could be observed using a scanning single electron transistor (SSET). These fluctuations might be one reason for the ''minimal conductivity'' at vanishing average density. While molecular adsorbates are treated as long range Coulomb defects there are short range scatterers that localize Dirac fermions. They are created using electron beam irradiation and can be characterized by ''weak localization'', ''universal conductance fluctuations'' and a metal-insulator transition. From the experiments regarding molecular adsorbates a process could be developed that allows the creation of graphene pn-junctions by chemical doping. These pn-junctions are investigated at high magnetic fields up to 12 T and low temperatures (QHE regime). Due to edge channel interaction at the p-n interface Hall resistances h/e{sup 2}, h/3e{sup 2}, h/15e{sup 2} can be observed, which do not exist in pure graphene. In the final section the pn-junctions are further developed into ballistic pn-arrays which allow the analysis of tunnelling of charge carriers in graphene (''Klein tunneling''). For ballistic pn-arrays one observes a {radical}([4])-density dependence of the conductivity being characteristic for Dirac fermions. (orig.)

  15. Impact de la forêt sur l’évolution des ressources en eau en moyenne montagne alpine depuis le milieu du XIXe siècle (massif de Chartreuse, France

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dominique Dumas

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available Depuis la révolution industrielle, une grande partie des terres des espaces de moyenne montagne a été abandonnée au profit d’une extension de la couverture forestière. Or, la forêt intercepte et retient un pourcentage plus ou moins élevé des pluies sur son feuillage, diminuant du même coup la quantité d’eau réellement reçue par le sol. Le transfert de l’eau atmosphérique en une eau utilisable comme ressource a donc été progressivement modifié au cours de ces dernières décennies par la transformation progressive du paysage. Dans cette étude, conduite à l’échelle du massif de Chartreuse, la pluviométrie annuelle, le rôle de la forêt dans l’interception des pluies et l’extension de la forêt, sont appréciés tour à tour. L’impact de l’extension de la forêt depuis le milieu du XIXe siècle sur les quantités d’eau perdues pour l’écoulement et les réserves souterraines peut ainsi être évalué. Cette étude montre que, depuis le milieu du XIXe siècle, l’extension de la couverture forestière en Chartreuse aurait accru de presque 100 mm les pertes en eau par les processus d’interception. Et, sur cette même période, cette quantité d’eau perdue n’a pas été compensée par une hausse des précipitations. Au total, le bilan hydrologique a donc été notablement modifié, avec une quantité d’eau disponible pour l’écoulement, ou les réserves souterraines, plus réduite que celle définie traditionnellement à partir des uniques relevés météorologiques.

    Summary Les séquelles de brûlures de la main sont encore fréquentes dans les pays à ressources limitées. Trente-deux patients, représentant 38 mains, ont été admis et traités, entre le 1er décembre 2010 et le 1er mai 2014 aux Cliniques Universitaires de Kinshasa en République Démocratique du Congo (RDC). nous avons observé 22 patients (69 %) dans le groupe de jeunes (patients âgés de moins de 18 ans), et 10 patients (31 %) chez les adultes (18 à 59 ans). Aucun patient dans le groupe de seniors (60 ans et plus) n’a été observé. Dans le groupe de jeunes, la tranche d’âge de 1 à 5 ans a été la plus atteinte avec 13 malades (40 %). l’accident à la maison était le plus fréquent (72 %). le mécanisme de la brûlure était le plus souvent thermique par flammes (51 %) ou par liquide chaud (34 %). les rétractions et brides sont les lésions le plus observées (84 %). la rétraction dorsale globale « main en griffe» est observée chez 40 % de patients traités, associée à des cicatrices hypertrophiques et chéloïdiennes dans 84 % de cas. Chez les 32 mains traitées chirurgicalement, des excision-greffes ont été réalisées dans 43,7 %, des lambeaux locaux dans 43,7 % et des lambeaux à distance dans 12,5 % de cas. A la sortie de l’hôpital, 84 % de « bons » résultats ont été observés. le suivi a été de 18 mois. le traitement des séquelles de brûlures de la main est possible dans ces pays, exemple de la rDC. Mais les défis à surmonter dans ces pays sont nombreux : la faible accessibilité aux techniques actuelles de la chirurgie plastique, la prise en charge initiale inadéquate des brûlures, la pauvreté.

  18. RESSOURCES ALLOCATION POSSIBILITIES WITHIN HEALTH SERVICES

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available The state policy in the health care area must take into account the complexity and specificity of the domain. Health means not only “to treat”, but also “to prevent” and “to recover and rehabilitate the individual physically”. Regardless of the adopted health insurance system, the health system is facing a big problem and this is the insufficient funds necessary to function properly. The underfunding may have various causes, from a wrong health policy, based on “treating” instead of “preventing”, by the misuse of funds. This papers intended to formulate assumptions that underpin the research I am conducting within the Doctoral Research Program held at the Valahia University of Targoviste, which aims at using the management control in increasing the health services performance. The application of the accounting and management control methods in determining health costs can be a beginning to streamline the system. This is also a result of the fact that health care is a public service with specific characteristics: it can not be subject only to market requirements but at the same time he must undergo an administrative savings, representing a typical case of market failure. The increased cost of treatment, as well as the decline in their quality can be determined by the discrepancy between the funding and payment mechanisms. Different payment systems currently available do nothing but perpetuate the shortcomings in the system. Switching to the introduction of cost and budgets by cost centers or object (if solved can be a step forward for a better management of resources. In this context, we consider as a necessity to be imposed the cost analysis on responsibility centers, the definition of the cost object and cost center identification and determination of direct costs and those indirect services to choose the basis for the allocation of cost centers and the determination of each actual cost per diagnosis.

  19. Perception et gestion de l’érosion et des ressources en eau par les agriculteurs et les éleveurs du bassin versant de l’ibicuí (RS, Brésil

    governo. 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. L’érosion des sols dans les zones d’arenização n’est pas considérée comme un enjeu, ces espaces sont improductifs, mais ne menacent pas la rentabilité globale des exploitations. C’est plus l’érosion en nappe au sein des

    Full Text Available The study explores the effectiveness of the implementation of blended teaching (BT by combining the Spanish online resource Aula Virtual de Español (AVE with the face-to-face (F2F delivery approach in second language Spanish programs in two high schools in Alberta, Canada. Findings demonstrate the effectiveness of combining the online resource AVE to the F2F teaching approach to promote BT in the Spanish language classroom. The use of BT approach in the language classroom had a positive impact on the students’ attitudes towards the study of the language, the students’ motivation and their participation levels in class, as well as their use of the target language in the classroom. Moreover, the multimodal experiences provided by the use of the online AVE resource combined with the F2F delivery approach responded more to the different learners learning styles and specific needs. Finally, the use of online AVE in conjunction with F2F teaching was also perceived as an effective tool in the preparation for the International Spanish Diplomas (DELE taken by the students in the more advanced Spanish classes. La présente étude explore l’efficacité de l’enseignement hybride combinant l’utilisation de la ressource espagnole en ligne Aula Virtual de Español (AVE et l’interaction face à face dans les programmes d’enseignement de l’espagnol, langue seconde, dans deux écoles secondaires de l’Alberta (Canada. Les résultats démontrent l’efficacité de la combinaison de la ressource en ligne AVE à la prestation face à face pour favoriser l’approche de l’enseignement hybride dans les cours d’espagnol. L’utilisation de l’approche de l’enseignement hybride dans le cours de langue a eu une incidence positive sur l’attitude des élèves relativement à l’apprentissage de la langue, la motivation des élèves et leur taux de participation en classe, ainsi que leur utilisation de la langue d’apprentissage dans la classe

    Full Text Available À l'Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard, des ressources pédagogiques sur support numérique ont été créées afin d'être intégrées au dispositif d'enseignement d'une UV d'anglais destinée à des élèves-ingénieurs. Dans le cadre d'une recherche-action, la nature et la fonction de ces ressources ont été établies à la lumière de connaissances théoriques, et les effets de leur intégration ont fait l'objet de mesures. Cet article se concentre sur les compétences qui ont été requises pour mettre en place ces ressources : compétences dans les domaines de la didactique des langues et de la création de pages HTML. Une ébauche de référentiel métier est proposée. Même si les résultats de cette expérience semblent positifs, la question demeure de savoir s'il est possible d'être en même temps enseignant et concepteur de ressources sur support numérique. Des éléments de réponse se trouvent peut-être davantage du côté de la gestion du temps, de la motivation et des savoir-faire relationnels que du seul côté des compétences informatiques. Cette expérience n'a nullement pour vocation de fixer les règles d'un exemple à suivre. Néanmoins, elle illustre le fait que la recherche-action peut être un moyen efficace de canaliser la diversité des motivations des enseignants impliqués dans des démarches innovantes et de promouvoir la responsabilité déontologique et épistémologique, ce qui contribuera à l'amélioration des pratiques d'enseignement.At the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard, digital learning resources have been designed for and integrated with the pedagogical structure of an English credit course for engineering students.

    Full Text Available La LGV est-européenne a été mise en service le 10 juin 2007. Les acteurs économiques des territoires desservis attendent beaucoup de cette arrivée notamment en matière de développement des tourismes urbain et d’affaires. Mais un tel développement n’est pas automatique. C’est l’appropriation collective de l’innovation que constitue la desserte à grande vitesse dans un territoire qui est au coeur de ses effets positifs. En effet, cette appropriation collective constitue une innovation relationnelle de laquelle peuvent naître des innovations de services complémentaires en matière de tourisme susceptibles de valoriser les ressources spécifiques existantes (patrimoine historique, culturel, gastronomique, etc.. Ainsi, si l’existence de ressources spécifiques joue un rôle pour les villes desservies, les efforts coordonnés des acteurs pour favoriser la “mise en tourisme” de la ville sont également décisifs. L’analyse est illustrée par le cas de l’agglomération rémoise.The East European High-Speed Rail started on June 10, 2007. Economic actors of beneficiary territories are expecting a lot of positive effects such as the development of urban and business tourisms. But such development is not automatic. The collective appropriation of the innovations linked to a High-Speed Rail Service seems to be central for generating positive effects. Indeed, this collective appropriation constitutes a relational innovation, which may give birth to additional services innovations in tourism that could enhance the value of existing specific resources (historical, cultural, gastronomic, etc. and turn them into assets. Thus, if the availability of specific resources plays a specific role for the connected cities, coordinated efforts of actors to promote the tourist development of the city are also decisive. We will illustrate our subject with the case of Rheims.

    Full Text Available L’algue est une ressource marine peu étudiée par la géographie ; elle offre pourtant des potentialités de développement économique. Les macro-algues cultivées à des fins alimentaires sont une alternative à la pêche. Les micro-algues constituent une biomasse valorisable : molécule pharmaceutique, Oméga 3 et biocarburants. De ces différents usages naît la question suivante : les algues sont-elles une ressource marine à exploiter pour développer durablement les territoires de la zone intertropicale ? Nous présenterons tout d’abord l’algoculture à l’échelle mondiale en soulignant le faible poids de cette activité dans le bassin caribéen. Puis nous montrerons que l’algoculture s’inscrit dans un processus de développement durable en assurant un revenu à des communautés rurales (Petites Antilles. Enfin, dans une approche comparative (États-Unis, nous verrons que l’espace caribéen est une région de projets et d’aménagements durables qui a des atouts pour développer l’algoculture : exposition solaire, hautes températures, proximité de la recherche américaine.Algae as sea resource have not been largely explored in Geography, yet it offers the potential for economic development. Macro-algae are cultivated for food purposes and they can substitute for fishing. Micro-algae can be valued as biomass: “nutraceutics”, Omega 3, biofuel. These various utilizations raise a question: are algae a key to a sustainable development in intertropical islands? We shall present Algaculture on a global scale, while emphasizing its low importance in the Caribbean. Then we shall show how algaculture can be part of a process of sustainable development by providing revenue to rural communities (Lesser Antilles. Finally, in a comparative approach (with the US, we shall see that the Caribbean Region has a number of assets for algaculture that make it suitable for sustainable projects and infrastructures: solar exposure

Les résultats présentés, touchant le savoir traditionnel de ces populations, leurs perceptions des changements environnementaux et de l’évolution des ressources halieutiques, ainsi que les solutions à y apporter, proviennent de deux questionnaires administrés à douze communautés du bassin du Tapajós. Ces résultats apportent un nouvel éclairage sur les enjeux liés à la gestion des ressources halieutiques et soulèvent les lacunes empêchant une réele appropriationdes problèmes environnementaux et l’émergence locale de solutions. Nous avons en effet mis en évidence que le déboisement et l’érosion des berges étaient perçus comme les plus importants changements environnementaux observés au fil du temps. La diminution de l’abondance et/ou la réduction des tailles des poissons a également été signalée par les personnes rencontrées. Le manque de lien entre les changements observés sur les écosystèmes naturels et ceux observés sur la ressource halieutique a attiré notre attention. En conséquence, toute intervention visant l’élaboration et/ou l’implantion de méthodes durables d’exploitation des ressources halieutiques doit absolument passer par une activité préalable d’information. Ceci dans le but de générer une appropriation locale des problèmes environnementaux et de favoriser l’émergence de solutions au sein des communautés concernées.Nesse artigo nós nos interessamos a pesca artesanal praticada pelos ribeirinhos da Amazônia.

    necessaire a la satisfaction de ses besoins. Ces differents acides amines indispensables sont synthetises par les organismes vegetaux terrestres ou aquatiques; les acides amines indispensables sont en majeure partie incorpores dans des proteines vegetales, qui sont soit consommees telles quelles par l'homme, soit transformees, avec un rendement assez faible, en proteines animales utilisees ulterieurement par l'homme. Les ressources en proteines ainsi mises a la disposition de l'homme sont actuellement insuffisantes et l'augmentation de la population mondiale rend necessaires aussi bien une augmentation de leur production qu'une amelioration du rendement de leur utilisation. L'inventaire des diverses sources de matieres azotees alimentaires et l'etude de leur composition en acides amines (principal facteur de qualite) montrent qu'il existe de nombreux moyens d'augmenter les ressources dont peut disposer l'homme, aussi bien par l'amelioration des techniques agricoles que par la fabrication de complements par l'industrie. La production vegetale peut etre amelioree surtout grace a l'irrigation, a l'utilisation d'engrais (en particulier azotes) et a l'amelioration genetique des graines, en vue de l'obtention de proteines de meilleure qualite a partir des especes actuellement cultivees aussi bien que de l'utilisation de plantes de composition interessante qui ne sont pas exploitees actuellement. La production et l'utilisation accrues de complements d'origine industrielle (acides amines de synthese notamment) doivent contribuer a ameliorer le rendement de l'utilisation des proteines d'origine vegetale par les monogastriques (homme, porc, volaille). Enfin, certaines proteines de bonne qualite (poissons, lait) devraient etre dans une plus grande proportion utilisees directement par l'homme. La technologie permet actuellement la bonne conservation de ces proteines. (author)

    Full Text Available Estimates for the total gas resource in place in geopressured Tertiary sandstone reservoirs along the United States Gulf Coast range from 3,000 to 100,000 tcf 185 to 2,832 trillion cu m. This wide range in estimates was the incentive for initiative research effort in Texas and Louisiane to obtain more reliable data on all aspects of developing the available heat and hydraulic energy present in these aquifers in addition to the methane. All resource calculations are based on interpretations of total sandstone thickness, lateral extent of reservoirs, porosity and permeability, reservoir drive, salinity, temperature, pressure, and methane solubility. Diverse estimates arise from inadequate knowledge concerning these critical parameters. Regional and detailed local geologic studies have been conducted ta delineate prospective areas for testing the geopressured resource. A prospective area should have reservoir volume of 3 Cu mi (12 cu km, minimum permeability of 20 mD, and fluid temperatures of 300°F (150°C. A geothermal designed test well has been drilled in Brazoria County, Texas, in order to test the potential of producing up to 40,000 barrels of water per day from a geopressured reservoir. The reservoir consists of 250 to 300 ft (75 to 90 m of sandstone with core permeabilities between 40 and 60 mD and fluid temperatures from 300 to 350°F (159 to 177°C. The test period will continue for a 2-year period and, with other designed tests in Texas and Louisiana will provide invaluable data concerning high-volume production over long periods of time. Les estimations pour les ressources totales de gaz dans les réservoirs sableux tertiaires à pressions géostatiques le long de la Gulf Coast des Etats-Unis sont corises entre 3000 et 100 000 tcf, soit 85 à 2832. 10. 12 m3. Cette large incertitude a incité la mise en oeuvre d'un effort extensif de recherche au Texas et en Louisiane en vue d'obtenir des données plus sûres sur tous les aspects du d

    Cancer resulting from occupational exposure is now receiving major attention, focusing on identification, regulation, and control of cancer-causing agents. Such cancer can result from exposure to chemicals and ionizing and nonionizing radiation. Extended exposure (often years) and an extended latent period of perhaps decades may intervene before tumor appearance. Although the actual extent of occupational cancer is in debate, estimates have ranged from 4 to 15 per cent of all cancer

  4. Optical and electronic properties of semiconducting nanoparticles; Optische und elektronische Eigenschaften von halbleitenden Nanopartikeln

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Gondorf, Andreas

    2011-10-07

    In the present thesis, the electronic properties of semiconducting nanoparticles are investigated. The I-V-characteristics of a submonolayer of silicon nanoparticles, embedded in a Si{sub 3}N{sub 4}-matrix are calculated. The calculated results are compared to those found experimentally by Cho et al. It is investigated whether quantization effects, like the Coulomb blockade, can also be observed in systems, which contain many particles. Compacted silicon and germanium nanoparticle powders are analyzed by reflection measurements. The goal is to determine the carrier density and to find how the core-shell-structure (Ge/Si core and Ge/Si oxide shell) affects the reflection spectra. Furthermore, the influence of doping on the properties of the nanoparticles is investigated. Optical spectroscopy and magneto-transport measurements are performed on thin films, consisting of indium tin oxide nanoparticles (ITO nanoparticles). In optical spectroscopy the dielectric function in the high frequency region is determined. With the known dielectric function the charge carrier concentration as well as the mobility can be calculated. With magnetotransport measurements it is possible to measure the Hall voltage and the macroscopic conductivity. By taking into account the theoretically derived correction factor [Kharitonov, 2008] the carrier density and macroscopic mobility can be determined. Thus, the combination of the two measurement methods allows an insight into the electronic structure of this system. Additionally, layers consisting of ITO nanoparticles exhibit a decreasing resistivity when a magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the current orientation. This effect is called negative transverse magnetoresistance. The experimental results can be explained by the weak localization theory of granular systems. For the dephasing time {tau}{sub H}, however, we find a different dependence on the magnetic field than predicted by theory (experiment: 1/{tau}{sub H} {proportional_to} H{sup 1,6}, theory: 1/{tau}{sub H} {proportional_to} H{sup 2}). For comparison, the magneto-transport properties of nanoporous gold (NPG), a second nanostructured system, have been investigated. In this system, however, the magnetoresistance is positive (the resistance rises with an increasing magnetic field). The results can be explained by the Fuchs-Sondheimer theory, even though it was developed for non porous thin metal layers. The dependence of the magnetoresistance on the magnetic field as well as the mean free path are determined.

    The deregulation of the German energy market has led to growing competition (among the utilities), causing prices to crumble. Consumers must intensify their search efforts considerably in order to identify the most suitable utility. Internet-based 'B2B' market-places for commodities such as electricity, gas and water help to optimise the match between demand and supply. (orig.)

    A semiconductor manufacturing plant is an example of the maximum requirement for clean, dust-free interiors. A single dust particle attaching itself to wafer during fabrication will result in electronic malfunction or short-circuiting of the chip. Control over micro-contamination is therefore a primary environmental management concern in a semiconductor facility. A detailed analysis was conducted of the air contamination characteristics and environmental conditions in a microelectronics manufacturing plant. Field measurements were also taken at a semiconductor factory in southern China. Data was collected regarding the level of micro contamination and the control of the indoor environment. The study indicates that 80 percent of the contaminants originate from personnel, 15 percent from the ventilation system and 5 percent from the building materials. The concentration of dust particles clearly rises when staff members enter and leave the clean room frequently, and the indoor air quality declines strongly in relation to the number of movements made by staff. Favourable parameters for the manufacturing of microcircuit chips appear to include 50 to 60 percent relative humidity, 19-25C air temperature and a relative overpressure of at least 5 Pa. [Dutch] Een werkplaats waar chips vervaardigd worden is een voorbeeld van een ruimte waar de hoogste eisen aan de luchtzuiverheid in een ruimte worden gesteld. Voor silicone microcircuit chips geldt dat elke aanraking met een stofdeeltje leidt tot een verstoring of kortsluiting in het elektrocircuit. Dit zorgt ervoor dat de microchip zijn functie verliest. Daarom is het beheersen van de verontreinigingen het belangrijkste aspect ten aanzien van het omgevingsmanagement in een werkplaats waar semiconductor chips vervaardigd worden. De verontreinigingskarakteristieken in een dergelijke werkplaats zijn in detail geanalyseerd, daarnaast worden er ook resultaten gepresenteerd van praktijkmetingen die verricht zijn in Zuid China. Ten behoeve van het handhaven van de zuiverheidsgraad zijn er metingen verricht aan het beheersen van de microverontreinigingen en het management van de binnenomgeving. Uit het onderzoek blijkt dat 80% van de verontreinigingsbronnen afkomstig is van de beheerders, 15% van het ventilatiesysteem en 5% van de bouwmaterialen. Het aantal stofdeeltjes neemt duidelijk toe wanneer de beheerders de ruimte in- en uitlopen, tevens neemt de binnenluchtkwaliteit sterk af bij toenemende bewegingen van de beheerders. De juiste omgevingsparameters, zoals een relatieve luchtvochtigheid van 50%- 60% en een temperatuur van 19-25C, zorgen ervoor dat de kwaliteit van de microchips kan worden verzekerd.

  8. Electronic ignition device for internal combustion engines. Elektronische Zuendvorrichtung fuer Brennkraftmaschinen

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Erhard, W

    1983-07-14

    The purpose of the invention is to create an electronic ignition device for internal combustion engines, so that the exact setting of a required ignition timing can be done without troublesome balancing of the circuit and without temperature compensation processes. According to the invention, in order to solve this problem, the ignition device is characterized by an auxiliary circuit, with an auxiliary winding magnetically coupled to the ignition coil, a capacitor and a diode, which is connected in parallel with the control section of the control component. The auxiliary winding charges the capacitor up via the diode, as long as the induction and therefore the voltage in the auxiliary winding are increasing. After exceeding the maximum voltage, this is maintained at the capacitor while the voltage in the auxiliary winding decreases. If the difference reaches the threshold voltage of the control component, in particular of a thyristor, this is switched on and blocks the switching transistor. Due to this circuit, the ignition timing is very close behind the timing of the greatest possible energy input into the primary coil.

    1996-01-01

    Renewable energy sources play a central role in the creation of a sustainable energy development. Due to the fluctuating nature of several renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and waves, new methodologies are needed for planning of energy supply systems. When biomass or hydro power sources...... straw and animal manure (for biogas) from agriculture. This paper describes the potential of biomass in the Danish energy supply system three to four decades ahead. The use of biomass for energy purposes may however conflict with the need to maintain soil quality of arable fields. Concerned ecological...... farmers claim that crop residues and animal manure should all be returned to the fields in order to improve soil organic matter levels. Consequently they oppose the export of these biomass resources for energy purposes with subsequent combustion and loss of carbon and nutrients. This conflict involves...

Estas unidades contienen las reservas de agua más importantes de la región que se encuentran en el acuífero Cenomaniense-Turoniense de Bouabout y en los acuíferos del Turoniense y Plio-Cuaternario de la zona sinclinal de Essaouira. El principal río que atraviesa esta cuenca es el denominado Igrounzar (en la zona frontal y Ksob (en la zona trasera. Es un río perenne gracias a las fuentes Cenomanienses-Turonienses de la zona frontal. Más del 50 % del volumen de agua de este río fluye entre los meses de noviembre y enero. Medidas de aforo diferenciales efectuadas a lo largo del ciclo hidrológico 1990-1991 (Fekri, 1993 demuestran que el Oued Ksob alimenta los acuíferos Plio-Cuaternarios y turoniense por flujos de 42 l/s y 64 l/s, respectivamente. El estudio hidrogeológico de los acuíferos de esta cuenca muestra que las aguas subterráneas fluyen del SE hacia el noroeste en el acuífero Plio-Cuaternario, y hacia el noroeste, el noreste y el oeste a nivel del acuífero Cenomaniense-Turoniense. El estudio hidroquímico permite identificar el origen de las mineralizaciones de las aguas, sus facies y sus calidades. La hidrología isotópica permite estimar las áreas de recarga de los acuíferos y sus interacciones, y definir las relaciones entre las dos unidades que constituyen la cuenca. También muestra que la recarga de los acuíferos por las lluvias eficaces se produce sin una notable evaporación.

    Full Text Available The financing decision is taken based on the expectations concerning the future cash-flows generated in the operating activity, which should provide coverage for the debt service and allow for an increase of the shareholders’ wealth. Still, the future cash-flows are affected by risk, which makes the sensitivity analysis a very important part of the decision process. The current research sets to evaluate the sensitivity of the payment capacity to variations of the payments for raw materials and consumables. The study employs 391 forecasted yearly cash-flow statements collected from 50 companies together with detailed information concerning the hypotheses of the forecasts. The results of the study allow for the establishment of benchmarks for the payment capacity’s sensitivity, the determination of the mechanisms through which the variation of payments for raw materials and consumables impacts the payment capacity, as well as the identification of the possible causes of such a variation.

    Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Since tobacco smoking is the cause in vast majority of cases, the incidence of lung cancer is expected to rise in those countries with high or rising incidence of tobacco smoking. Even though population at a risk of developing lung cancer are easily identified, mass screening for lung cancer is not supported by currently available evidence. In case of non-small cell lung cancer, a cure may be possible with surgical resection followed by post-operative chemotherapy in those diagnosed at an early stage. A small minority of patients who present with locally advanced disease may also benefit from preoperative chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy to down stage the tumor to render it potentially operable. In a vast majority of patients, however, lung cancer presents at an advanced stage and a cure is not possible with currently available therapeutic strategies. Similarly small cell lung cancer confined to one hemi-thorax may be curable with a combination of chemotherapy and thoracic irradiation followed by prophylactic cranial irradiation, if complete remission is achieved at the primary site. Small cell lung cancer that is spread beyond the confines of one hemi-thorax is however, considered incurable. In this era of molecular targeted therapies, new agents are constantly undergoing pre-clinical and clinical testing with the aim of targeting the molecular pathways thought to involved in etiology and pathogenesis of lung cancer.

    1990-01-01

    In the U.S. oral cancer accounts for 2.1% of all cancers and 1% of cancer deaths. Two to three times as many males as females are affected. Blacks have more intra-oral cancer than whites, and their incidence and mortality rates have increased in recent years. The etiologic process very likely involves several factors. The major etiologic agents are tobacco (all types) and alcoholic beverages. Herpes simplex virus, human papilloma virus, and Candida have been implicated. Host factors include poor state of dentition, nutritional aberrations, cirrhosis of liver, lichen planus, and immunologic impairmant. Cellular changes include amplification of some oncogenes, alterations in antigen expression, production of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase, and disturbance of keratin and involucrin production. Experimentally, cancer is readily produced on the hamster cheek pouch and rat oral mucosa. Unlike oral cancer in humans, most experimental lesions are exophytic, and they rarely metastasize.

    Full Text Available The present article presents the Slovenian multidisciplinary agreement statement on the definition, staging, clinical classification and multimodal approach to the treatment of cachexia in cancer patients. The consensus was reached during a multidisciplinary plenary session, and is based on the international definition of cancer cachexia adopted in 2011. Cancer cachexia is a multifactorial metabolic syndrome defined by an ongoing loss of skeletal muscle with or without concomitant loss of fat, which cannot be fully reversed by conventional nutritional support and leads to progressive functional impairment. Its pathophysiology is characterized by a negative energy and protein balance due to a variable combination of reduced food intake and metabolic changes. In cancer patients, the cachexia syndrome can develop progressively through various stages – from precachexia to cachexia and finally, to refractory cachexia–represent-ing a continuum of metabolic changes, clini-cal signs and symptoms. Patients can progress from precachexia to cachexia, and reverse from cachexia into precachectic stages, while (as the term itself implies, the condition of refractory or irreversible cachexia has poor therapeutic response. A clinical algorithm for recognition and treatment of cachexia in cancer patients is presented. All cancer patients should be screened for cachexia and precachexia on presentation. Patients who fulfil diagnostic criteria for cancer cachexia should have its clinical stage determined. According to phenotype / clinical stage, a multimodal approach should be adopted in the treatment of all cases of cancer cachexia. A typical multimodal management plan in cachectic patients consists of early dietary intervention, exercise, anti-inflammatory therapy and early cancer-related symptom relief. The cachexia treatment pathway should be adopted as a pathway parallel to conventional cancer treatment. Practical implementation of cancer cachexia

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Salek, T.

    2007-01-01

    Gastric cancer is still a major health problem and a leading cause of cancer mortality despite a worldwide decline in incidence. Primarily due to early detection of the disease, the results of treatment for gastric cancer have improved in Japan, Korea and several specialized Western centres. Surgery offers excellent long-term survival results for early gastric cancer (EGC). In the Western world, however more than 80 % of patients at diagnosis have an advanced gastric cancer with a poor prognosis. The aim of surgery is the complete removal of the tumour (UICC R0-resection), which is known to be the only proven, effective treatment modality and the most important treatmentrelated prognostic factor. The prognosis after surgical treatment of gastric cancer remains poor. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is a rising option in locally advanced gastric cancer. Adjuvant chemoradiation has been shown to be beneficial in gastric cancer patients who have undergone suboptimal surgical resection. The benefits of adjuvant chemotherapy alone seem to be very small, Untreated metastatic gastric cancer is associated with a median survival of only 3 - 4 months, but this can be increased to 8 - 10 months, associated with improved quality of life, with combination chemotherapy. Currently, no standard combination chemotherapy regimen exists, although regimens utilizing both cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil, such as epirubicin/cisplatin/fluorouracil (ECF) or docetaxel/cisplatin/fluorouracil (DCF) are amongst the most active. Newer chemotherapeutic agents, including irinotecan, oxaliplatin and taxanes, show promising activity, and are currently being tested with biologics in clinical trials. (author)

Nonmelanoma skin cancer includes basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Fair skin and chronic ultraviolet B exposure are the most important risk factors. Primary prevention is achieved by avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds. Copyright © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    This chapter reviews the development of skin cancer associated with radiation, focusing on the knowledge of A-bomb radiation-induced skin cancer. Since the discovery of X radiation in 1895, acute and chronic radiation dermatitis has been the first matter of concern. Then, in 1902, skin cancer found among radiological personnel has posed a social problem. In earlier study determining the relationship between skin cancer and A-bomb radiation, there is no increase in the incidence of either skin cancer or precancerous condition during the first 20 years after A-bombing. More recent studies have showed that there is a significant correlation between the incidence of skin cancer and distance from the hypocenter; and the incidence of skin cancer is found to be remarkably increased since 1975 in the group exposed at ≤2,000 m. Excess relative risk is 2.2 at one Gy dose. The incidence of skin cancer is also found to be extremely increased with aging. Relative risk is high in younger A-bomb survivors at the time of exposure. Histologically, basal cell carcinoma is more senstitive to ionizing radiation than squamous cell carcinoma. (N.K.)

    This paper reviews the experience of the Workmen's Compensation Board of Ontario in identifying cases of cancer that could be attributed to occupational hazards. Workers' claims for compensation are allowed if there is reasonable medical evidence that their cancer was caused by exposure to risk factors associated with their occupation. Details of the types of cancers associated with specific carcinogens or fields of employment are discussed. About 50% of the cases were related to exposure in particular industrial operations that functioned for relatively brief periods. The number of deaths from cancer identified as being caused by occupational factors is compared with the total for cancer from all causes in Ontario during the period 1971 through 1975. Although all workers eligible for compensation may not have been identified, the data suggest that less than 1% is presently caused by occupational factors

    More than 20-year follow-up of A-bomb survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki has a crucial role in determining the relationship of radiation to the occurrence of breast cancer. In 1967, Wanebo et al have first reported 27 cases of breast cancer during the period 1950-1966 among the Adult Health Study population of A-bomb survivors. Since then, follow-up surveys for breast cancer have been made using the Life Span Study (LSS) cohort, and the incidence of breast cancer has increased year by year; that is breast cancer was identified in 231 cases by the first LSS series (1950-1969), 360 cases by the second LSS series (1950-1974), 564 cases by the third LSS series (1950-1980), and 816 cases in the fourth LSS series (1950-1085). The third LSS series have revealed a high risk for radiation-induced breast cancer in women aged 10 or less at the time of exposure (ATE). Both relative and absolute risks are found to be decreased with increasing ages ATE. Based on the above-mentioned findings and other studies on persons exposed medical radiation, radiation-induced breast cancer is characterized by the following: (1) the incidence of breast cancer is linearly increased with increasing radiation doses; (2) both relative and absolute risks for breast cancer are high in younger persons ATE; (3) age distribution of breast cancer in proximally exposed A-bomb survivors is the same as that in both distally A-bomb survivors and non-exposed persons, and there is no difference in histology between the former and latter groups. Thus, immature mammary gland cells before the age of puberty are found to be most radiosensitive. (N.K.)

In his opinion, cancer is the toll man has to pay for industrialization and the destruction of the environment, and cancer therapy must begin long before the patient's treatment by changing that same einvironment. The different carcinogenous factors are discussed in detail and each chapter concludes with recommendations to those concerned and request for legislation. (MG) [de

    Based on the own experience and world literatures, contribution of radiation in the treatment of lung cancer was reviewed and discussed. Although the patients with advanced cancer were referred to radiation usually, the results of radiotherapy were superior to those by chemotherapy. Of course the radiotherapy was a local one, radiation combined with chemotherapy was highly recommended, besides systemic administration of chemotherapeutics, special methods such as bronchial arterial infusion (BAI) and chemoembolization would be more favourable in selected patients. Treatment of undifferentiated small cell carcinoma was becoming more dependent on chemotherapy, radiation showed as excellent local control as ever. To treat locally extended cancer patients with involvement of the thoracic wall and Pancoast's syndrome, external radiation alone were not successful, interstitial radiation or a single exposure with a large dose during the thoracotomy would be promising. Finally, data indicated that aged and poor risk patients in early stage of cancer might be treated by radiation instead of unjustifiable operation. (author)

    This paper describes colorectal cancer risk in relation to A-bomb radiation. The RERF Life Span Study has revealed the incidence of colorectal cancer to be significantly high in the group of A-bomb survivors than the control group. With regard to relative risk or excess relative risk, there is no definitive difference among sites in the colon. Risk for colon cancer is found to be linearly increased with increasing radiation doses, and in younger A-bomb survivors at the time of exposure. Risk associated with one Gy is estimated to be increased by double. There is no definitive variation between sex and between Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Excess relative risk would be increased rapidly with aging in the whole group of A-bomb survivors and with the cancer-prone age in younger A-bomb survivors at the time of exposure. (N.K.)

    Malignant tumors have received much attention as delayed effects of A-bomb radiation. Above all, it is of a major concern to determine how the incidence of stomach cancer, commonly observed among Japanese, is influenced by A-bomb radiation. This article focusses on the relationship between A-bomb radiation and the incidence of stomach cancer, and its histological features with a brief review of the literature. Mass screening for stomach cancer has showed in 1973 that the incidence of stomach cancer is definitely high among the heavily exposed A-bomb survivors. Since then, data analyses using the T65DR have showed it to be higher in the 100 rad exposed group than the 0 rad exposed group. On the basis of death certificates, the incidence of stomach cancer is found to be increased around 1976. When using DS86, the calculated lowest dose that produces a significantly high mortality incidence from stomach cancer is 1 Gy at the sheilding kerma and 0.5 Gy at organ absorbed dose. Histopathologically, the incidence of poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma is increased with increasing radiation doses; it is significantly increased in the 1 rad exposed group. The incidence of medullary type is decreased and the incidence of scirrhous type is increased with increasing radiation doses. (N.K.)

    Surgery and radiation therapy have been the main types of treatment for gynecologic cancer. However, chemotherapy in gynecologic oncology has recently made dramatic progress and presently is becoming the most widespread treatment. After the discovery of cisplatin in the field of chemotherapy for epithelial ovarian cancer, it has now become the leading treatment modality. According to the result of several important phase III randomized control trials (RCTs), the platinum-taxane combined therapy has now become the standard treatment regimen. Regarding endometrial cancer, Cisplatin-Adriamycin-Cyclophosphamide (CAP) therapy has been used as an effective adjuvant chemotherapy in Japan. The adjuvant chemotherapy (Adriamycin-Cisplatin therapy) for the endometrial cancer has now been recognized worldwide as the standard therapy based on the findings of a phase III RCT. Concurrent chemoradiotherapy for cervical cancer has also been recommended as the standard therapy in Japan since 1999 based on the successful results of numerous RCTs which proved its efficacy. The chemotherapy for gynecologic cancers has been investigated and standardized based on the results of numerous clinical trials. These trials have been conducted by many clinical trial groups, such as the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG), Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG), and the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) throughout the world, in addition to the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG) and the Japanese Gynecologic Oncology Group (JGOG) in Japan. The valuable contributions of these clinical trials are helping in the development of new drug therapies, thus leading to such treatment regimens playing increasingly important and wider roles in the field of gynecologic oncology treatment in the future.

    An overview is presented of the program at ORNL which is concerned with the study of cancer. The studies range from those at the molecular level and the control of gene expression to those concerning cell interactions and the role of immune responses. Since the agents capable of inducing cancer are multiple, the approaches must encompass the specific characteristics of chemical carcinogens, ionizing radiation, ultraviolet radiation and viruses. The approach of the molecular biological studies is centered on the role of activation of transposable gene elements. One investigation is concerned with the study of radiation-induced myelogenous leukemia. The other radiation carcinogenesis studies fall into two major groups. First, there are investigations of various facets of the mechanisms of cancer induction. The molecular and chromosomal studies fall into this category. The second group of studies includes those that are concerned with risk estimates

    Cervix cancers declined in most developed countries in recent years, but remain, the third worldwide leading cause of cancer death in women. A precise staging, based on clinical exam, an abdominal and pelvic MRI, a possible PET-CT and a possible lymph node sampling is necessary to adapt the best therapeutic strategy. In France, the treatments of tumors of less than 4 cm without nodal involvement are often based on radiotherapy followed by surgery and, whereas tumors larger than 4 cm and involved nodes are treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Based on an illustrated clinical case, indications, delineation, dosimetry and complications expected with radiotherapy are demonstrated. (authors)

    Esophageal cancers are highly malignant tumours with often a poor prognosis, except for minimal lesions treated with surgery. Radiation therapy, or combined radiation and chemotherapy is the most used therapeutic modality, alone or before oesophagectomy. The delineation of target volumes is now more accurate owing the possibility to use routinely the new imaging techniques (mainly PET). The aim of this work is to precise the radio-anatomical particularities, the pattern of spread of esophageal cancer and the principles of 3D conformal radiotherapy illustrated with a clinical case.

    Squamous cell carcinoma of the penis represents approximately 0.5% of all cancers among men in the United States and other developed countries. Although rare, it is associated with significant disfigurement, and only half of the patients survive beyond 5 years. Proper evaluation of both the primary lesion and lymph nodes is critical, because nodal involvement is the most important factor of survival. The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology for Penile Cancer provide recommendations on the diagnosis and management of this devastating disease based on evidence and expert consensus.

    Adenocarcinoma of the pancreas continues to be a significant source of cancer mortality in Japan, resulting in approximately 19,000 deaths a year. It is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Japan, with a less than 5% 5-year expected survival rate. About 70-75% of patients with pancreas cancer present with locally advanced disease or distant metastases and have a median survival time of only 6 months. For unresectable pancreas cancer, the median survival time with external beam radiation (EBRT) was better than with surgical bypass or stents alone. The median survival of EBRT alone was 4 to 7 months. The median survival with combined EBRT and chemotherapy for locally unresectable tumor are 8 to 10 months and better than with the EBRT alone. Local failure of these combined therapies was still 26 to 48%. On the other hand, surgery with curative intent is undertaken in 15-20% of patients. Even after resection, the predicted 5-year survival rates are still less than 20%. Local recurrences in the pancreatic bed are seen in 50% of the patients undergoing presumed curative resection. We examined the effect of carbon ion therapy in terms of reducing the rate of local recurrence in patients with locally advanced adenocarcinoma of the pancreas or undergoing resection for adenocarcinoma of the pancreas.

  8. Electronic structure of epitaxial chalcopyrite surfaces and interfaces for photovoltaics; Elektronische Struktur epitaktischer Chalkopyrite und deren Heterokontakte fuer die Photovoltaik

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Hofmann, Andreas

    2012-02-14

    This thesis constitutes a comprehensive study of the surface physics of epitaxial CuInSe{sub 2} films. It comprises analyses of the surface morphology and reconstruction, electronic band structure as well as hetero-junctions relevant to photovoltaic applications. Therefore, especially the aspect of stoichiometry variation from the CuInSe{sub 2} to the copper-deficient defect phases was considered. Preparation and analysis was completely performed under ultra-high vacuum conditions in order to ensure the investigation of well-defined samples free of contaminants. For some of the analysis techniques, single-crystalline samples are indispensable: They allow for the determination of surface periodicity by low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). In combination with concentration depth profiling by angle-resolved x-ray photoemission, to types of surface reconstructions could be distinguished for the near-stoichiometric CuInSe{sub 2}(112) surface. In the copper-rich case, it is stabilized by Cu{sub In} anti-site defects and on the indium-rich side by 2 V{sub Cu} defects, as predicted by surface total energy calculations by Jaffe and Zunger. Both configurations correspond to a c(4 x 2) reconstruction of the zinc blende type (111) surface. For the defect compound CuIn{sub 3}Se{sub 5}, a sphalerite order of the surface was found, which points at a weakening or absence of the chalcopyrite order in the bulk of the material. The unusual stability of the (112) surface could also be proven by comparison with the reconstruction and surface order of (001) and (220) surfaces. The results from surface analysis were used to measure the valence band structure of the epitaxial samples by synchrotron-based angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The CuInSe{sub 2}(001) surface gives access to the high symmetry directions {Gamma}-T and {Gamma}-N of momentum space. By contrasting the data obtained for the stoichiometric surface with the copper-poor defect compound, a reduction of the valence band dispersion and a broadening of electron states was observed, which can be understood as a higher localization of electronic states and lower crystal quality. In addition, a strong rearrangement of the copper partial density of states was shown. The intimate knowledge of the electric structure was then exploited to demonstrate the valence band discontinuity between CuInSe{sub 2} and CuIn{sub 3}Se{sub 5}. The analysis by photoemission yielded a valence band offset of 0.28 eV, again in reasonable agreement with theoretical results. The p-n-junction in chalcopyrite solar cells is situated near the absorber-buffer interface, which is therefore crucial for the device performance. In this thesis, ZnO deposited from metal-organic precursors on epitaxial CuInSe{sub 2} was investigated as cadmium-free buffer material. In the course of contact formation, the interfacial region of the absorber becomes depleted of copper. Additionally, a thin intrinsic ZnSe layer is formed, prior to the growth of ZnO. The derived band alignments show no dependence on the surface orientation of the chalcopyrite substrate and are consistent with theoretical results. The conduction band lineup is favorable for the application in solar cells.

    The invention is used for the automatic determination of the degree of cloud cover of the sky. Compared to the state of the art, the invention has the advantage that it manages without mechanical controls, like those of 'sky scanners' for example, and that the measuring head has a very simple, cheap and robust construction. In order to do without any mechanics, a group of 24 photo-transistors of type BPX 43 was mounted on a hemispherical support, which screens the individual elements from one another, so that a certain section of the sky is allocated to each transistor. The optical axes of the individual axes are distributed completely evenly, so that there is an even and beam-shaped alignment to the sky above the measurement head. The individual measurements of the 24 transistors together give a certain optical impression, a 'picture' or a brightness distribution of the sky hemisphere, which can be read by a suitable program via a normal commercial adaptor into a personal computer, where this distribution is compared with given distributions which have degrees of cover of 0-8 or 0-10 as heading. The given 'picture' which comes closest to the current distribution is ejected as the result, and the heading of this picture gives the current degree of cloud cover.

    Full Text Available Background. The pancreatic cancer is quite common malignant tumor of gastointestinal tract and its incidence is increasing in well developed part of the world. Despite of all advanced diagnostic methods the disease is in most cases recognised too late when the tumor is not resectable.Conclusions. Only in 20–30% of patients with pancreatic cancer surgical resection is possible, and even in this group 5year survival is very low. In the patients where the tumor is not resectable, sometimes only palliative procedures are indicated and sometimes only simptomatic therapy is possible. The average survival period in this group of patients is 12–20 months. Adjuvant chemo and radiotherapy has not shown much of benefit and the prognosis is still very bad.

    An actual condition of cancer, and the basis and a future view of radiotherapy were described by adding generally established biological and biochemical knowledge to the author's research. It was described that the relapse of cancer after irradiation was induced from outside of cancerous mass, and the nature of relapsed cancerous cells group was also stated. The histological structure of cancer from a view of cell movement and radioresistant cancerous cells group were described. The differentiation of cancerous cells were described, and a study of inhibition of cancer by redifferentiation was considered. It is important to grasp characteristics and a limit of radiotherapy for cancer, to systematize and materialize reasonable therapy which uses drug and immunotherapy together with surgery, and to use radiotherapy reasonably together with redifferentiation therapy of cancerous cells by extracting characteristics and a limit of radiationtherapy from an actual condition of cancer.

  7. Cancer prevention.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Tubiana, M

    1999-01-01

    Over 70% of human cancers are associated with lifestyle and about half of cancer deaths could be prevented by relatively simple individual actions: no smoking, moderate consumption of alcohol, increased consumption of fruit and vegetables, avoidance of sunbathing, obesity and a too high consumption of saturated lipids. Most of these efforts would also markedly decrease the incidence of cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. However, the concept of prevention is currently neither well accepted nor understood by the medical community and the general public. It is often felt that it restricts freedom, imposes a choice between pleasure and duty, and that passing judgement on lifestyle is a form of intolerance. The case of tobacco illustrates the difficulties encountered by prevention, notably among adolescents. The fight against smoking requires information, a societal approach (ban on advertising, increase in price), and a reduction of the example given by adult smoking (parents, peers, teachers, physicians, TV presenters, movie stars, have a great influence on adolescents), while tobacco cessation programs must be promoted. The various approaches should be integrated into a global program of health prevention, including health education at school from 5 to 12 years of age. The efficacy of each of the global program's components should be evaluated. Misconceptions such as overestimation of the impact of pollution on health should also be corrected. Health is created and experienced by people within the setting of their daily lives, in particular during childhood. Prevention is the responsibility of individual members of the community but also of the community as a whole.

    Telomeres are a double-edged sword when it comes to cancer. On one hand, telomeres limit the cells' ability to divide and thereby restrict the uninhibited growth seen in cancer. On the other hand, short telomeres can initiate the chromosome instability that characterizes cancer. Diseases...... with the combination of short telomeres and high cancer risk are seen, but until now the use of telomeres as predictors of cancer has, in general, been unsuccessful. Telomeres and telomerase play an important role in further cancer development. Researchers are trying to exploit this in the development of new cancer...

    Long non-coding RNAs serve as important regulators in complicated cellular activities, including cell differentiation, proliferation and death. Dysregulation of long non-coding RNAs occurs in the formation and progression of cancers. The family of colon cancer associated transcripts, long non-coding RNAs colon cancer associated transcript-1 and colon cancer associated transcript-2 are known as oncogenes involved in various cancers. Colon cancer associated transcript-1 is a novel lncRNA located in 8q24.2, and colon cancer associated transcript-2 maps to the 8q24.21 region encompassing rs6983267. Colon cancer associated transcripts have close associations with clinical characteristics, such as lymph node metastasis, high TNM stage and short overall survival. Knockdown of them can reverse the malignant phenotypes of cancer cells, including proliferation, migration, invasion and apoptosis. Moreover, they can increase the expression level of c-MYC and oncogenic microRNAs via activating a series of complex mechanisms. In brief, the family of colon cancer associated transcripts may serve as potential biomarkers or therapeutic targets for human cancers. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.

    Cancer has been a major cause of death world wide and in Nigeria there are six commonest forms of manifestation of cancer known. Of these prostrate cancer is the highest with 16% occurrence of all known cancers according to a study by the Histopathology Department of the UCH. Many factors, amongst them dietary, environmental, lifestyle, age and sedentary work are possible causes. With the global rise in incidents, the IAEA initiated the Tumour Marker Project as a means of screening cancers in 15 African countries including Nigeria. In Nigeria, 4 groups of the commonest cancers have been chosen for screening. These are prostrate cancer, primary liver cancer, cancer of the GI tract and trophoblastic cancer

    It has been long recognized that Thyroid Cancer (TC) envelopes under its umbrella a spectrum of cancers from the relatively indolent well differentiated papillary and follicular cancers to the aggressive and rapidly fatal anaplastic cancers. Medullary cancers fall in between the two extremes. Recently, poor prognostic variants of well-differentiated cancers have been described. There is also a move to define a group of poorly differentiated TC including the insular variants distinguishing them from anaplastic carcinomas. Of the 1168 patients with thyroid nodules seen at the Cancer Institute (WIA), Chennai between 1956 and 1996, 670 cases proved to be malignant either cytologically or histologically. This report is based on the follow-up of these patients which at 10 years was 75%

    Cancer has gone global. Once seen as the disease of the rich and old, cancer now kills over seven million people a year, with 70% of these deaths occurring in developing countries. The number of cancer cases is growing globally, but developing countries are worst hit by the cancer crisis, since the resources needed to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer are severely limited or nonexistent.

    1975-01-01

    Diagnostic and therapeutic advances of the last 30 years have left unchanged the course and prognosis of carcinoma of the exocrine pancreas. The most important reasons for this are the anatomic location and biologic nature of the tumor. An additional factor of importance is the consistently reported 4 to 9 month delay in diagnosis, also unchanged in 30 years. Recent controversy has developed concerning the mainstay of our current surgical treatment surgical treatment, the Whipple pancreaticoduodenectomy and its modifications, and its role as the most efficacious surgical approach to this disease. It is the purpose of this paper to review and summarize the clinical characteristics of carcinoma of the exocrine pancreas and to review and reassess the standard operative approach. Cancer of the head, body, and tail of the pancreas will be considered together because they have many features in common

    1989-01-01

    It is rare for one human being to be afflicted with more than one cancer. However with further advances in therapeutic regimens, histopathologic observation, diagnostic modalities, and increased curiosity, there are increasing number of case reports of multiple primary cancer. The present study evaluates 25 histologically confirmed cases of multiple primary cancer from 1974 to 1988 at Kosin Medical Center. The most frequent site of the first primary cancer in male was stomach and in female, uterine cervix. The first primary cancer in female occurred in endocrine-related organs (breast, uterus and thyroid) in 63.6 percent. Synchronous cancers are diagnosed simultaneously or within an interval of about six months and synchronous cancers were 16 out of 25 cases. Metachronous cancers are diagnosed at interval of more than six months. There were 9 metachronous cancers and average interval between the first and second primary cancer was 22.8 months. The incidence of multiple primary cancer was 0.11 percent. The average age was 51.9 years at the time of the first primary cancer (53.1 years in male and 50.3 years in female). CT scan was most helpful in early detection of multiple primary cancers facilitating biopsy and surgery. Multiple primary cancers are beyond the medical curiosity. Early diagnosis of the disease and careful follow-up study, based on an awareness of the possibility of second cancers, will substantially increase the survival of these patients

    According to the cancer stem cell theory, cancers can be initiated by cancer stem cells. This makes cancer stem cells prime targets for therapeutic intervention. Eradicating cancer stem cells by efficient targeting agents may have the potential to cure cancer. In this review, we summarize recent breakthroughs that have improved our understanding of cancer stem cells, and we discuss the therapeutic strategy of targeting cancer stem cells, a promising future direction for cancer stem cell research.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lao, Victoria Valinluck; Grady, William M.

    2012-01-01

    Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. It results from an accumulation of genetic and epigenetic changes in colon epithelial cells that transforms them into adenocarcinomas. There have been major advances in our understanding of cancer epigenetics over the last decade, particularly regarding aberrant DNA methylation. Assessment of the colon cancer epigenome has revealed that virtually all colorectal cancers have aberrantly methylated genes and the average colorectal cancer methylome has hundreds to thousands of abnormally methylated genes. As with gene mutations in the cancer genome, a subset of these methylated genes, called driver genes, is presumed to play a functional role in colorectal cancer. The assessment of methylated genes in colorectal cancers has also revealed a unique molecular subgroup of colorectal cancers called CpG Island Methylator Phenotype (CIMP) cancers; these tumors have a particularly high frequency of methylated genes. The advances in our understanding of aberrant methylation in colorectal cancer has led to epigenetic alterations being developed as clinical biomarkers for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic applications. Progress in the assessment of epigenetic alterations in colorectal cancer and their clinical applications has shown that these alterations will be commonly used in the near future as molecular markers to direct the prevention and treatment of colorectal cancer.

    Despite the progress in cancer treatment over the past years advanced cancer is still an incurable disease. Special attention is pointed toward cancer stem cell (CSC)-targeted therapies, because this minor cell population is responsible for the treatment resistance, metastatic growth and tumor recurrence. The recently described CSC dynamic phenotype and interconversion model of cancer growth hamper even more the possible success of current cancer treatments in advanced cancer stages. Accordingly, CSCs can be generated through dedifferentiation processes from non-CSCs, in particular, when CSC populations are depleted after treatment. In this context, the use of targeted CSC nanomedicines should be considered as a promising tool to increase CSC sensitivity and efficacy of specific anti-CSC therapies.

    2008-01-01

    A fundamental assumption behind cancer rehabilitation in many Western societies is that cancer survivors can return to normal life by learning to deal with the consequences of their illness and their treatment. This assumption is supported by increasing political attention to cancer rehabilitation...... and a growth in residential cancer-rehabilitation initiatives in Denmark (Danish Cancer Society 1999; Government of Denmark 2003). On the basis of their ethnographic fieldwork in residential-cancer rehabilitation courses, the authors examine the new rehabilitation discourse. They argue that this discourse has...

    2015-09-01

    Physics of Cancer focuses on the mechanical properties of cancer cells and their role in cancer disease and metastasis. It discusses the role of the mechanical properties of interacting cells and the connective tissue microenvironment and describes the role of an inflammation during cancer disease. This outstanding book is the first to describe cancer disease from a biophysical point of view without being incomplete in describing the biological site of cancer. Originating in part from the author's own courses on tumor biology and cellular biophysics, this book is suitable for both students and researchers in this dynamic interdisciplinary field, be they from a physical, biological or medical sciences background.

    2017-11-01

    Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) significantly interferes with usual functioning because of the distressing sense of physical, emotional, and cognitive exhaustion. Assessment of CRF is important and should be performed during the initial cancer diagnosis, throughout cancer treatment, and after treatment using a fatigue scoring scale (mild-severe). The general approach to CRF management applies to cancer survivors at all fatigue levels and includes education, counseling, and other strategies. Nonpharmacologic interventions include psychosocial interventions, exercise, yoga, physically based therapy, dietary management, and sleep therapy. Pharmacologic interventions include psychostimulants. Antidepressants may also benefit when CRF is accompanied by depression. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

  10. Cancer in Punjab: evidence from cancer atlas

    Full Text Available Cancer in Punjab has been a news item in the recent past. It was thought that cases in Punjab exceeded the national average and felt that “Punjab the country’s food bowl was in throes of cancer” (1. This presumption was perhaps incorrect. In order to have clarity on the issue, we aimed to review the report of Cancer Atlas in Punjab state for the year 2012-13, recently released by Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR. The main idea of generating data through Cancer Atlas approach is to assess patterns of cancer in various parts of Punjab state and to estimate cancer incidence at various districts in Punjab. The sources of data collection in the state are all medical colleges, pathology labs, civil hospitals and individual oncologist throughout the state. These data collection sources are considered important as over 80-85% of registered cases of cancer are generally with a microscopic diagnosis (2. Patient data details in the Atlas approach included are Cancer site and morphology of the cancer as per guidelines for collecting information on all malignant cases. The similar approach that adopted in Cancer Atlas in India such as internet approach is used in entering core patient data for Punjab Atlas by standardized procedures.

    The purpose of this paper is to present the epidemiology, diagnostic workup and treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with an emphasis on the Slovenian epidemiological data. RCC represents 2% of all cancers and is the third most common genitourinary tract tumour. It most frequently occurs among people of ages, between 50 and 60 years. Male patients are more prone to it than female. A number of environmental, occupational and genetic factors have been found to be associated with the development of RCC. Patients often have nonspecific symptoms and this is the reason why for half of them the disease is already metastatic when diagnosed. The most common sites of metastases are lungs (75%), followed by soft tissues (36%), bones (20%), liver (18%), skin (8%) and central nerve system (8%). In the evaluation of RCC multiple diagnostic procedures are needed with obligatory image diagnostics. Radical nephrectomy is still the mainstream treatment of localized disease. Nephron sparing techniques have been used in cases, where radical operation would result in an anephric patient. Efficient adjuvant therapy has not been discovered yet. Until recently interpherone and interleukin were the only known effective treatments for metastatic disease, but now new and more efficient biologic agents are being discovered. The most important prognostic factor for survival is stage at the beginning of treatment. The 5-year survival rate is 95% for patients with stage I disease, 88% for stage II, 59% for stage III and 20% for stage IV. (author)

    Data have been accumulating to support an increased role for combined radiation therapy and surgery in the initial treatment of many rectal and some colonic carcinomas. These include the following findings: 1. Improvements in surgical survival rates have been minimal in the past 25 to 30 years and are the result of an increase in operability with little change by stage of disease in those patients who have survived a ''curative resection.'' 2. The incidence of local recurrence after potentially curative surgery is high in more advanced stages of disease for both rectal and colon cancer. Although palliation of local recurrence can frequently be obtained, its duration is often limited and the curative potential is low. Therefore, prevention of local recurrence with adjuvant radiation with or without chemotherapy is imperative. 3. When patients present with fixed, unresectable tumors, aggressive treatment combinations appear to improve both local control and survival. Close interaction is required between the surgeon and the radiation oncologist to achieve these results with an acceptable risk of complications

    Radiation therapy of prostate carcinoma with a curative intent implies to treat the whole prostate at high dose (at least 66 Gy). According to clinical stage, PSA level, Gleason's score, the clinical target volume may include seminal vesicles and less often pelvic lymph nodes. Microscopic extra-capsular extension is found in 15 to 60% of T1-T2 operated on, specially in apex tumors. On contrary, cancers developing from the transitional zone may stay limited to the prostate even with a big volume and with a high PSA level. Zonal anatomy of the prostate identifies internal prostate, including the transitional zone (5% of the prostate in young people). External prostate includes central and peripheral zones. The inferior limit of the prostate is not lower than the inferior border of the pubic symphysis. Clinical and radiological examination: ultrasonography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), CT-scan identify prognostic factors as tumor volume, capsule effraction, seminal vesicles invasion and lymph node extension. The identification of the clinical target volume is now done mainly by CT-Scan which identifies prostate and seminal vesicles. NMR could be helpful to identify more precisely prostate apex. The definition of margins around the clinical target volume has to take in account daily reproducibility and organ motion and of course the maximum tolerable dose for organs at risk. (authors)

  14. Cancer screening guidelines.

    Numerous medical organizations have developed cancer screening guidelines. Faced with the broad, and sometimes conflicting, range of recommendations for cancer screening, family physicians must determine the most reasonable and up-to-date method of screening. Major medical organizations have generally achieved consensus on screening guidelines for breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. For breast cancer screening in women ages 50 to 70, clinical breast examination and mammography are generally recommended every one or two years, depending on the medical organization. For cervical cancer screening, most organizations recommend a Papanicolaou test and pelvic examination at least every three years in patients between 20 and 65 years of age. Annual fecal occult blood testing along with flexible sigmoidoscopy at five-year to 10-year intervals is the standard recommendation for colorectal cancer screening in patients older than 50 years. Screening for prostate cancer remains a matter of debate. Some organizations recommend digital rectal examination and a serum prostate-specific antigen test for men older than 50 years, while others do not. In the absence of compelling evidence to indicate a high risk of endometrial cancer, lung cancer, oral cancer and ovarian cancer, almost no medical organizations have developed cancer screening guidelines for these types of cancer.

    At the scale of a city, a sustainable water management raises questions about the links between uses and resources: what water quality is needed for what purpose? The Parisian context is a favourable ground for conducting such type of reflection thanks to the existence of a non-potable water network (RENP) dating from the late nineteenth century. The network is currently supplied by summarily filtrated water from the Seine river (20%) and the canal de l’Ourcql (80%). It is mainly used for mun...
