Application of carbon-chlorine isotopic analysis to determine the origin and fate of chlorinated ethenes in groundwater

Badin, Alice ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Dir.) ; Schirmer, Mario (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

Chlorinated ethenes are ubiquitous groundwater contaminants posing a threat to one of our main drinking water sources. Despite their spill history dating back to more than 40 years ago, these contaminants are still found in groundwater in numerous industrially developed countries due to their persistence, difficult characterisation in the subsurface and resulting challenging remediation. When...

Numerical simulations and uncertainty analysis for assessing spatial and temporal dynamics in alluvial river-aquifer systems : an application in the context of the 3rd Rhône River Correction

Gianni, Guillaume ; Brunner, Philip (Dir.) ; Perrochet, Pierre (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

La caractérisation de l’interaction entre les rivières et les eaux souterraines pour des aquifères alluviaux est essentielle afin d’anticiper l’impact des stratégies de gestion de rivière, comme le sont les restaurations de rivières, sur l’ensemble de la ressource en eau et sur sa dynamique. De ce fait, le développement de méthodes et d’approches de calibration permettant une...

The early to middle triassic continental–marine transition of NW Bulgaria: sedimentology, palynology and sequence stratigraphy

Ajdanlijsky, George ; Götz, Annette E. ; Strasser, André

In: Geologica Carpathica, 2018, vol. 69, no. 2, p. 129–148

Sedimentary facies and cycles of the Triassic continental–marine transition of NW Bulgaria are documented in detail from reference sections along the Iskar river gorge between the villages of Tserovo and Opletnya. The depositional environments evolved from anastomosing and meandering river systems in the Petrohan Terrigenous Group to mixed fluvial and tidal settings in the Svidol Formation,...

Origin and age of carbonate clasts from the Lusi eruption, Java, Indonesia

Samankassou, Elias ; Mazzini, Adriano ; Chiaradia, Massimo ; Spezzaferri, Silvia ; Moscariello, Andrea ; Couto, Damien Do

In: Marine and Petroleum Geology, 2018, vol. 90, p. 138–148

Deep stratigraphic constrains below the Indonesian Lusi mud eruption are currently lacking due to the absence of deep wells and good quality seismic data. A collection of carbonate clasts has been sampled from the Lusi site, active since its birth in 2006. These specimens are part of a large variety of lithotypes erupted from the main crater. The carbonates analysed comprise scleractinian...

Permian magmatism and metamorphism in the Dent Blanche nappe: constraints from field observations and geochronology

Manzotti, Paola ; Rubatto, Daniela ; Zucali, Michele ; El Korh, Afifé ; Cenki-Tok, Bénédicte ; Ballèvre, Michel ; Engi, Martin

In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2018, vol. 111, no. 1–2, p. 79–97

In the Dent Blanche Tectonic System, the Mont Morion biotite-bearing granite is a km- scale intrusion preserved in a low-strain volume. Zircon saturation thermometry suggests that it crystallised from a melt that reached about 800 °C. U–Pb zircon and allanite geochronology indicates crystallization of the magma in the Permian (290 ± 3 Ma; 280 ± 8 Ma, respectively). Migmatitic...

Mapping and quantifying sediment transfer between the front of rapidly moving rock glaciers and torrential gullies

Kummert, Mario ; Delaloye, Reynald

In: Geomorphology, 2018, vol. 309, p. 60–76

The sedimentary connection which may occur between the front of active rock glaciers and torrential channels is not well understood, despite its potential impact on the torrential activity characterizing the concerned catchments. In this study, DEMs of difference (DoDs) covering various time intervals between 2013 and 2016 were obtained from LiDAR-derived multitemporal DEMs for three rapidly...

Geogenic arsenic in groundwater of Burkina Faso

Bretzler, Anja Maria ; Schirmer, Mario (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Dans les régions sahéliennes semi-arides d’Afrique de l’Ouest, l’eau souterraine des aquifères fracturés permet de satisfaire les besoins en eau potable des populations rurales. Au nord du Burkina Faso, des études récentes ont montré que l’eau de certains forages contient de l’arsenic (As) à des concentrations supérieures à la norme de 10 μg/L définie par l’Organisation...
