Hydrogeological characterization of karst aquifers in Switzerland using a pragmatic approach

Malard, Arnauld ; Jeannin, Pierre-Yves (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Recent studies reveal that karst aquifers represent a significant part of the Swiss groundwater reserve (120 km3) and resource (8.4 km3/year), although they only extend over 20% of the territory. On the one hand, high infiltration rates and large permeabilities of karstified rocks make karst aquifers highly interesting for water management. On the other hand, karst...

Erasure coding for distributed storage systems

Barbi, Roberta ; Mercier, Hughes (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

A huge quantity of data is generated and stored every day. Preeminent examples are the 300 million photos that get uploaded daily to Facebook or the 156 million emails sent every minute. Furthermore, it is remarkable that almost 90% of the data in the world has been generated in the last 2 years. This humongous quantity of data is typically hosted in data centres located in different geographic...

Predicting the spatial correlation of daily streamflows to understand the hydrological response of river networks

Betterle, Andrea ; Schirmer, Mario (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Rivers are fascinating expressions of the hydrological cycle and their waters, riparian areas and floodplains harbor a multitude of ecosystems. The potential for rivers to sustain life depends on the dynamics of water quantity – and quality – that are critically controlled by catchment-scale geomorphoclimatic processes. In particular, the temporal and spatial availability of streamflows is...

The protein disulfide isomerase ERp57 regulates the steady-state levels of the prion protein

Torres, Mauricio ; Medinas,Danilo B. ; Matamala, José Manuel ; Woehlbier, Ute ; Cornejo, Víctor Hugo ; Solda, Tatiana ; Andreu, Catherine ; Rozas, Pablo ; Matus, Soledad ; Muñoz, Natalia ; Vergara, Carmen ; Cartier, Luis ; Soto, Claudio ; Molinari, Maurizio ; Hetz, Claudio

In: The journal of biological chemistry, 2015, vol. 290, no. 39, p. 23631-23645

Although the accumulation of a misfolded and protease-resistant form of the prion protein (PrP) is a key event in Prion pathogenesis, the cellular factors involved in its folding and quality control are poorly understood. PrP is a glycosylated and disulfide-bonded protein synthesized at the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The ER foldase ERp57 (also known as Grp58) is highly expressed in the brain...

Advances in characterizing surface water-groundwater interactions : combining unconventional data with complex, fully-integrated models

Schilling, Oliver S. ; Brunner, Philip (Dir.) ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

The characterization and simulation of the interactions between surface water and groundwater require observations of hydrological state variables and flow processes. While the latest generation of physically-based flow models allows the integrated simulation of all relevant hydrological processes, the current modelling practice is not adequate to provide reliable predictions. Numerous studies...

High performance selected inversion methods for sparse matrices : direct and stochastic approaches to selected inversion

Verbosio, Fabio ; Schenk, Olaf (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2019 ; 2019INFO002.

The explicit evaluation of selected entries of the inverse of a given sparse matrix is an important process in various application fields and is gaining visibility in recent years. While a standard inversion process would require the computation of the whole inverse who is, in general, a dense matrix, state-of-the-art solvers perform a selected inversion process instead. Such approach allows...
