    Keywords: glaciers ; cryosphere
    Notes: Les glaciers de montagne ont connu ces dernières années un mouvement de repli marqué et rapide, qui fait craindre la disparition d'une partie d'entre eux d'ici quelques décennies. Cette évolution aura un impact sur la ressource en eau et sera à l'origine de risques naturels accrus. Ainsi, les glaciers font actuellement l'objet de nombreux travaux scientifiques, d'autant qu'ils sont parmi les meilleurs indicateurs pour évaluer les changements climatiques. Leur observation et la reconstitution de leurs fluctuations s'inscrivent au cœur des grands programmes de recherche sur le réchauffement de la planète. Offrir à un large public le bilan de ces recherches à travers un panorama complet de l'état des glaciers dans le monde, tel est l'objectif principal de cet ouvrage. La glace et les glaciers, mémoires des climats du passé, y sont resitués dans le temps long, depuis 10 000 ans, avec une attention particulière pour le Petit Âge Glaciaire (XIVe - XIXe siècle) et la période contemporaine, la mieux documentée. Les fluctuations glaciaires, liées aux variations climatiques, et qui sont peut-être aujourd'hui amplifiées par les activités humaines, sont passées au crible des connaissances actuelles. À tous ceux qui s'intéressent à l'avenir des glaciers et de l'environnement, ce livre apporte une expertise scientifique accessible et superbement illustrée. | Contents: Remerciements --- Avertissement --- Introduction --- Partie 1.

  • Keywords: nanomaterials ; nanotubes
    Notes: The insulating medium used in gas-insulated switchgear is SF6 gas, which has been widely used in substations. Energy generated by discharge will cause the composition of SF6 and generate characteristic component gases. Diagnosing the insulation defect through analyzing the decomposed gases of SF6 by chemical gas sensors is the optimal method due to its advantages. Carbon nanotubes, TiO2 nanotubes and graphene are chosen as the gas-sensing materials to build specific gas sensors for detecting each kind of SF6 decomposed gases and then enhance the gas sensitivity and selectivity by material modification. The properties and preparation methods are introduced in this book. The author studied the micro-adsorption mechanism and macro-gas sensing properties by theoretical calculation and sensing experiment. | Contents: Chapter 1: The SF6 Decomposition Mechanism: Background and Significance by Xiaoxing Zhang, Ju Tang, Song Xiao and Fuping Zeng --- Chapter 2: Application of CNTs Gas Sensor in Online Monitoring of SF6 Insulated Equipment by Xiaoxing Zhang, Song Xiao, Ju Tang and Cheng Pan --- Chapter 3: Application of TiO2 Nanotubes Gas Sensors in Online Monitoring of SF6 Insulated Equipment by Ju Tang, Xiaoxing Zhang, Song Xiao and Fuping Zeng --- Chapter 4: Application of Graphene Gas Sensors in Online Monitoring of SF6 Insulated Equipment by Xiaoxing Zhang, Ju Tang, Song Xiao and Cheng Pan --- Chapter 5: Comparative Study of Materials to SF6 Decomposition Components by Xiaoxing Zhang, Ju Tang, Song Xiao, Fuping Zeng, Cheng Pan and Yingang Gui

Nanoplasmonics concerns to the investigation of electron oscillations in metallic nanostructures and nanoparticles. Surface plasmons have optical properties, which are very interesting. For instance, surface plasmons have the unique capacity to confine light at the nanoscale. Moreover, surface plasmons are very sensitive to the surrounding medium and the properties of the materials on which they propagate. In addition to the above, the surface plasmon resonances can be controlled by adjusting the size, shape, periodicity, and materials' nature.

    Keywords: mass spectrometry ; analytical chemistry
    Notes: Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that can be used for the structural characterization and quantification of a wide range of molecules. The technique is extensively used by chemists for the analysis of small and volatile organic compounds. Mass spectrometry has long been an important technique for the identification of materials ranging from pure compounds to complex mixtures. Mass spectrometry can be used to determine molecular weight of compounds or using different ionization conditions, can provide more structural details through the analysis of fragmentation patterns. This level of detail can be attained for pure compounds and some mixtures. Mass spectrometry can also be combined with separation techniques such as gas chromatography or liquid chromatography to allow more complex mixtures to be examined.

  • Keywords: margins ; boundaries ; plate convergence
    Notes: This book deals with recent developments in evolutionary models for convergent margins. Reflecting transient modes for oceanic plate convergence, such boundaries are sites of varied tectonic processes, which provoke vigorous material recycling and frequent natural disasters such as massive earthquakes and catastrophic volcanism. Therefore, the origin of their diversity has long been one of the most significant themes in Earth science.

  • Keywords: biodiversité ; COP21 ; climat ; environnement
    Notes: In the prospect of the COP21 held in Paris in December 2015, the French Centre for Ethiopian Studies (CFEE) organised a scientific conference on environmental and climatic changes in the horn of Africa, with a decisive financial support of the Institut français (Fonds d’Alembert), Paris. The conference was part of a larger event, called “the Road to Paris” and organised by the French Embassy to Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network (HoA-REC&N), Addis Ababa University, in HoA-REC&N headquarters at Gullele Botanic Gardens, Addis Ababa, from 7 to 9 April 2015. In this event, our first purpose was to set aside from the pressure of short-term and policy-oriented concerns raised by the international bureaucracies and bilateral donors, as to try to explore diverse, cross-disciplinary dimensions related to environmental change in the region in a wider way, wider in time and also wider in the elements observed. In a way, the Road to Paris event has also showed, with the various stakeholders and speakers it has gathered, that the issue of climate change has “solidified” automatic discourses, supporting wishful intentions and thinking, and clearly embedded in the building of professional opportunities and international careers. These discourses, indeed, are everything but close to the reality observed on the ground. In this new, competitive, social field, priority may not be easily given to scientific exploration that is not directly policy-oriented and that requires a longer time to produce strong data than what the political and bureaucratic agendas allow. One could not state, though, that interest for science is totally absent in these arenas on climate change. But, invariably, public expectations appear to be much too high in scope and in time, compared to what intellectual curiosity and scientific processes and protocols can produce on a day-to-day basis. Improving awareness on environmental changes should start here: to give a better understanding on the complexity and multiplicity of factors involved in the relation between human evolution, societal choices and developments, and natural environments. The French Centre for Ethiopian Studies (CFEE) in Addis Ababa was quite well equipped to initiate, with its partners, such a cross-disciplinary exploration. | Contents: Table of contents: --- David Ambrosetti, Jean-Renaud Boisserie et Thomas Guindeuil: Introduction --- David Ambrosetti: African States, Climate Change and the COP21.

  • Keywords: fractals ; fractal analysis ; fractal applications
    Notes: Fractal analysis has entered a new era. The applications to different areas of knowledge have been surprising. Let us begin with the fractional calculus-fractal geometry relationship, which allows for modeling with extreme precision of phenomena such as diffusion in porous media with fractional partial differential equations in fractal objects. Where the order of the equation is the same as the fractal dimension, this allows us to make calculations with enormous precision in diffusion phenomena-particularly in the oil industry, for new spillage prevention. Main applications to industry, design of fractal antennas to receive all frequencies and that is used in all cell phones, spacecraft, radars, image processing, measure, porosity, turbulence, scattering theory. Benoit Mandelbrot, creator of fractal geometry, would have been surprised by the use of fractal analysis presented in this book: "Part I: Petroleum Industry and Numerical Analysis"; "Part II: Fractal Antennas, Spacecraft, Radars, Image Processing, and Measure"; and "Part III: Scattering Theory, Porosity, and Turbulence." It's impossible to picture today's research without fractal analysis. | Contents: Chapter 1: Applications of Radial Basis Function Schemes to Fractional Partial Differential Equations by Carlos Alberto Torres Martínez and Carlos Fuentes --- Chapter 2: Application of Fractional Calculus to Oil Industry by Benito F.

    Notes: In the era of Internet of Things and with the explosive worldwide growth of electronic data volume, and associated need of processing, analysis, and storage of such humongous volume of data, it has now become mandatory to exploit the power of massively parallel architecture for fast computation. Cloud computing provides a cheap source of such computing framework for large volume of data for real-time applications. It is, therefore, not surprising to see that cloud computing has become a buzzword in the computing fraternity over the last decade. This book presents some critical applications in cloud frameworks along with some innovation design of algorithms and architecture for deployment in cloud environment. It is a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, engineers, practitioners, and graduate and doctoral students working in the field of cloud computing. It will also be useful for faculty members of graduate schools and universities. | Contents: Chapter 1: State-of-the-Art Antenna Technology for Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs) by Waleed Tariq Sethi, Abdullah Alfakhri, Muhammad Ahmad Ashraf, Amr G.
