Les études consacrées aux interventions de Sartre dans les médias dressent le portrait d’un philosophe frileux à l’égard de la radio, un médium réputé « à sens unique » conformément aux commentaires qu’il en aurait livré dans sa Critique de la raison dialectique. Il n’est pas étonnant dès lors que ces études se satisfont d’une approche essentiellement textuelle de ces interventions et manquent ainsi les usages singuliers que Sartre a fait de ses passages en radio. Partant d’extraits d’interventions enregistrées entre 1946 et 1973, la conférence et projection sonore Réagir à l’archive. Sartre et la radio entend contester l’image d’un philosophe rétif au médium radiophonique tout en dépassant la réduction de ses interventions sonores à leur seule retranscription textuelle. Le rythme des réponses du penseur, leur longueur, le jeu avec l’interviewer dont elles portent les traces, mais aussi les multiples références au direct de l’entretien radiophonique et à la réalité du moment de la diffusion témoignent en effet d’un usage extrêmement lucide d’un médium dont Sartre a tenté d’exploiter toutes les potentialités intellectuelles et politiques propres. On découvrira ainsi qu’avant d’être un matériau d’archive effacé par le texte, les interventions radiodiffusées du philosophe ont été autant de tentatives de (se) jouer de la spécificité radiophonique pour inscrire la pensée critique au cœur même du dispositif médiatique.

Intense deforestation over large areas is an important component of global models which aim to quantify the transfer of terrestrial siliceous material from the continent to the coast. Hence, there is a need for improved understanding of land use impact on Si export. We present a model that simulates the kinetic dissolution of biogenic Si in a forest soil. A kinetic equation was calibrated based on leaching experiments of soil columns at constant water flux. The calibrated equation was then used to simulate the Si export from a forest soil under varying atmospheric conditions and provided realistic Si concentrations in soil water. The same model was used to simulate the impact of reduced evapotranspiration due to deforestation and consequently increased soil water fluxes on the Si export. Results showed that lower amounts of biogenic silicon dissolved and higher Si fluxes were released to the system once water flux increased. The use of the kinetic dissolution equation for biogenic Si improves our understanding and the modelling of the Si release from soils towards the hydrographic system. [less ▲]

Sixteen weaned male Alpine kids (Capra hircus) were subjected to a 21-day oral daily exposure of 0.05 mg kg 1 BW. d 1 of chlordecone (CLD) and 0.30 mg kg 1 BW. d 1 of each non-dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls (NDL-PCBs, congeners 28, 52, 101, 138, 153 and 180). Four kids, identified as the CONTA group, were slaughtered at the end of the exposure, while the remaining animals (n ¼ 12) were fed with specific diets for an additional 21-day decontamination period before slaughtering. Kids from the DECONTA (n ¼ 4) group were fed a control diet, while those from the AC10% and PO8% group received pellets supplemented with 10% activated carbon (AC) and 8% paraffin oil (PO), respectively. CLD and NDL-PCB levels in blood, liver, peri-renal fat and muscles from different groups were analysed to compare the decontamination dynamics of the pollutants and to determine the efficiency of AC and PO to decrease the body levels of pollutants. After the decontamination period, the CLD levels considerably decreased (more than 60%) in blood, liver, muscles and fat. Concerning NDL-PCBs, the decontamination process was much lower. Overall, CLD appeared to be less retained in kids’ organism compared with NDL-PCBs, and the decontamination dynamics of these pollutants appeared to be different because of their specific physicochemical properties and lipophilicity. Furthermore, the dietary supplementation with AC or PO did not significantly affect the decontamination dynamics. [less ▲]

This work aims to (1) identify the most conductive conditions for the generation of greenhouses gases (GHGs) in groundwater (e.g., hydrogeological contexts and geochemical processes) and (2) evaluate the indirect emissions of GHGs from groundwater at a regional scale in Wallonia (Belgium). To this end, nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations and the stable isotopes of nitrate (NO3−) and sulphate were monitored in 12 aquifers of the Walloon Region (Belgium). The concentrations of GHGs range from 0.05 µg/L to 1631.2 µg/L for N2O, 0 µg/L to 17.1 µg/L for CH4, and 1769 to 100,514 ppm for the partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2). The highest average concentrations of N2O and pCO2 are found in a chalky aquifer. The coupled use of statistical techniques and stable isotopes is a useful approach to identify the geochemical conditions that control the occurrence of GHGs in the aquifers of the Walloon Region. The accumulation of N2O is most likely due to nitrification (high concentrations of dissolved oxygen and NO3− and null concentrations of ammonium) and, to a lesser extent, initial denitrification in a few sampling locations (medium concentrations of dissolved oxygen and NO3−). The oxic character found in groundwater is not prone to the accumulation of CH4 in Walloon aquifers. Nevertheless, groundwater is oversaturated with GHGs with respect to atmospheric equilibrium (especially for N2O and pCO2); the fluxes of N2O (0.32 kg N2O-N Ha-1 y-1) and CO2 (27 kg CO2 Ha-1 y-1) from groundwater are much lower than the direct emissions of N2O from agricultural soils and fossil-fuel-related CO2 emissions. Thus, indirect GHG emissions from the aquifers of the Walloon Region are likely to be a minor contributor to atmospheric GHG emissions, but their quantification would help to better constrain the nitrogen and carbon budgets.

This paper presents a model to simulate built-up expansion and densification based on a combination of a non-ordered multinomial logistic regression (MLR) and cellular automata (CA). The probability for built-up development is assessed based on (i) a set of built-up development causative factors and (ii) the land-use of neighboring cells. The model considers four built-up classes: non built-up, low-density, medium-density and high-density built-up. Unlike the most commonly used built-up/urban models which simulate built-up expansion, our approach considers expansion and the potential for densification within already built-up areas when their present density allows it. The model is built, calibrated, and validated for Wallonia region (Belgium) using cadastral data. Three 100 × 100 m raster-based built-up maps for 1990, 2000, and 2010 are developed to define one calibration interval (1990–2000) and one validation interval (2000 − 2010). The causative factors are calibrated using MLR whereas the CA neighboring effects are calibrated based on a multi-objective genetic algorithm. The calibrated model is applied to simulate the built-up pattern in 2010. The simulated map in 2010 is used to evaluate the model's performance against the actual 2010 map by means of fuzzy set theory. According to the findings, land-use policy, slope, and distance to roads are the most important determinants of the expansion process. The densification process is mainly driven by zoning, slope, distance to different roads and richness index. The results also show that the densification generally occurs where there are dense neighbors whereas areas with lower densities retain their densities over time. [less ▲]

In this study, urban development process in the Walloon region (Belgium) has been analysed. Two main aspects of development are quantitatively measured: the development type and the definition of the main drivers of the urbanisation process. Unlike most existing studies that consider the urban development as a binary process, this research considers the urban development as a continuous process, characterised by different levels of urban density. Eight urban classes are defined based on the Belgian cadastral data for years 2000 and 2010. A multinomial logistic regression model is employed to examine the main driving forces of the different densities. Sixteen drivers were selected, including accessibility, geo-physical features, policies and socio-economic factors. Finally, the changes from the non-urban to one of the urban density classes are detected and classified into different development types. The results indicate that zoning status (political factor), slope, distance to roads, population densities and mean land price, respectively, have impact on the urbanisation process whatever maybe the density. The results also show that the impact of these factors highly varies from one density to another. [less ▲]
