Abstract

In an attempt to standardize elements of the station routine, the book describes the procedures used in passerine and wader ringing stations. It offers a comparative analysis of versatile evaluation techniques such as measurements, orientation experiments and monitoring. The authors meticulously analyze different methods used to track birds, including catching passerines with mist-nets in land and wetland habitat, as well as the use of the Heligoland trap. The monograph, as a successful bid to establish a bird station routine that is favourable to both birds and ringers, will benefit all professional and amateur ringers.

Abstract

Aujourd’hui, le littoral français apparaît, dans sa grande majorité, comme le territoire des vacances, où la visite estivale du touriste permet une intense activité et des profits appréciables. Cependant, l’usage balnéaire du littoral a dû faire face à d’autres interlocuteurs et ne s’est imposé que progressivement. Si, au début, touristes et populations locales se sont côtoyés, les visiteurs commencent, dès le milieu du xixe siècle, à rêver de villes idéales, où tout est fait pour les satisfa...

Abstract

In the years since 1989, the societies of Russia and Eastern Europe have undergone a remarkable transformation from socialism to democracy and free market capitalism. Making an important contribution to the theoretical literature of urbanism and post-communist transition, this significant book considers the change in the spatial structure of post-Soviet urban spaces since the period of transition began. It argues that the era of transformation can be considered as largely complete, and that this has given way to a new stage of development as part of the global urban and economic system: post-transformation. The authors examine the modern trends in the urban development of western and post-socialist countries, and explore the theories of the transformation and post-transformation of urban space. Providing a wealth of detailed qualitative research on the Russian city of St. Petersburg, the study examines the changing structure of its retail trade and services sector. Overall, this book is an important step forward in the study of the spatial dynamics of urban transformation in the former communist world.

Abstract

Îlot de solitude, particule élémentaire d'un infini maritime, Tromelin est perdue au milieu de l'océan Indien. Confetti inhabité et hostile d'un kilomètre carré, l'« île de sable » émerge à peine en 1722, date de sa découverte. Elle ne devra sa renommée qu'à un tragique épisode. En 1761, l'Utïle y fait naufrage et abandonne sa « cargaison » d'esclaves malgaches ; les survivants ne seront secourus que quinze ans plus tard. Une survie dont les conditions sont désormais bien connues grâce aux recherches archéologiques menées de 2006 à 2013. Dans cet ouvrage abondamment documenté et illustré, Max Guérout reconstitue l'histoire de ce grain de sable depuis le début du xviiie siècle jusqu'à nos jours. Il en reconstruit la mémoire éclatée, marquée par les escales fugaces de quelques navigateurs, hydrographes ou militaires curieux. Il s'attache en particulier à reconstituer l'histoire des équipes de la station météorologique française installée sur l'île en 1954. Tirant chacun des fils laissés par ces résidents de passage, Max Guérout nous livre ici le fruit d'un long et patient travail autour de l'écheveau des souvenirs.

Abstract

Quelles sont les répercussions de l'effervescence des média sur les audiences aquitaines, dans les grandes villes comme dans les petits "pays" à forte identité culturelle ? Prenant appui sur les résultats des enquêtes menées depuis 1984 sur les audiences en Aquitaine et principalement sur les Médialocales de Médiamétrie de 1989, l'équipe du Centre d'Étude des Media dégage les caractéristiques de l'évolution actuelle du paysage médiatique aquitain. Elle s'interroge sur la spécificité locale de la communication médiatique en région. Dans la presse écrite, le quotidien représente un important poids régional, tandis que dominent les hebdomadaires nationaux. En radio, l'originalité de l'Aquitaine tient à une plus grande écoute des stations locales de Radio-France que le passage d'Europe 1 et de RTL sur la bande FM n'a pas modifiée. La stabilité de l'audience de la télévision favorise la progression de TF1, au détriment de FR3, à moins que le câble, le satellite ne redistribuent la donne dans un avenir plus ou moins proche.

Abstract

Les loisirs, ces temps et ces activités consacrées à la détente, aux divertissements et au développement personnel, sont devenus un objet d'études sociologiques, puis historiques depuis leur ""découverte"" en tant que fait social lors des Trente Glorieuses. Malgré un bel essor de ces études depuis quelques années, de nombreuses interrogations persistent, notamment en ce qui concerne les liens directs des loisirs avec les sociétés urbaines. Questions qui portent d'abord sur les rapports des lois...

Abstract

When a fire department called "Ostwache" in the eastern part of Leipzig closed down, it left their old building behind vacant. Soon after a neighbourhood initiative sought to use the space to establish a community center for the surrounding neighbourhood. At the same time, the municipal government was planning a new school on the same lot. This thesis presents a solution for this conflict. By bringing together architectural, urban planning and pedagogical perspectives, while aiming for synergies. Following the model of Freinet pedagogy, a community school was planned with a new building at the site of the old fire station and the community center is to be located in the existing building of the old Ostwache. Through a common courtyard, shared work and sports facilities and a shared lunch, the school opens up to the city and its neighborhood to the school. This is how city works as school and a school works as city.

Abstract

In recent decades, there has been an increase in the development of strategies for water ecosystem mapping and monitoring. Overall, this is primarily due to legislative efforts to improve the quality of water bodies and oceans. Remote sensing has played a key role in the development of such approaches—from the use of drones for vegetation mapping to autonomous vessels for water quality monitoring. Within the specific context of vegetation characterization, the wide range of available observations—from satellite imagery to high-resolution drone aerial imagery—has enabled the development of monitoring and mapping strategies at multiple scales (e.g., micro- and mesoscales). This Special Issue, entitled “Novel Advances in Aquatic Vegetation Monitoring in Ocean, Lakes and Rivers”, collates recent advances in remote sensing-based methods applied to ocean, river, and lake vegetation characterization, including seaweed, kelp, submerged and emergent vegetation, and floating-leaf and free-floating plants. A total of six manuscripts have been compiled in this Special Issue, ranging from area mapping substrates in riverine environments to the identification of macroalgae in marine environments. The work presented leverages current state-of-the-art methods for aquatic vegetation monitoring and will spark further research within this field.

Abstract

Modern power systems are affected by many sources of uncertainty, driven by the spread of renewable generation, by the development of liberalized energy market systems and by the intrinsic random behavior of the final energy customers. Forecasting is, therefore, a crucial task in planning and managing modern power systems at any level: from transmission to distribution networks, and in also the new context of smart grids. Recent trends suggest the suitability of ensemble approaches in order to increase the versatility and robustness of forecasting systems. Stacking, boosting, and bagging techniques have recently started to attract the interest of power system practitioners. This book addresses the development of new, advanced, ensemble forecasting methods applied to power systems, collecting recent contributions to the development of accurate forecasts of energy-related variables by some of the most qualified experts in energy forecasting. Typical areas of research (renewable energy forecasting, load forecasting, energy price forecasting) are investigated, with relevant applications to the use of forecasts in energy management systems.

Abstract

Energy storage systems have been recognized as viable solutions for implementing the smart grid paradigm, but have created challenges in terms of load levelling, integrating renewable and intermittent sources, voltage and frequency regulation, grid resiliency, improving power quality and reliability, reducing energy import during peak demand periods, and so on. In particular, distributed energy storage addresses a wide range of the above potential issues, and it is gaining attention from customers, utilities, and regulators. Distributed energy storage has considerable potential for reducing costs and improving the quality of electric services. However, installation costs and lifespan are the main drawbacks to the wide diffusion of this technology. In this context, a serious challenge is the adoption of new techniques and strategies for the optimal planning, control, and management of grids that include distributed energy storage devices. Regulatory guidance and proactive policies are urgently needed to ensure a smooth rollout of this technology. This book collects recent contributions of methodologies applied to the integration of distributed energy storage devices in smart power systems. Several areas of research (optimal siting and sizing of energy storage systems, adaption of energy storage systems to load leveling and harmonic compensation, integration for electric vehicles, and optimal control systems) are investigated in the contributions collected in this book.
