The perception of language needs in Danish companies : Representations and repercussions

Millar, Sharon ; Cifuentes, Sylvie ; Jensen, Astrid

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2012, vol. 95, p. 75-96

Cet article a pour objectif d'explorer les besoins des entreprises en ce qui concerne les langues, comment ces besoins sont perçus par la direction et les employés dans différentes entreprises internationales au Danemark. En utilisant autant des données quantitatives issues d'une enquête par questionnaire auprès de 19 entreprises que des données qualitatives de 12 entreprises, les besoins...

Conductive structures around Las Cañadas caldera, Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain): A structural control

Coppo, Nicolas ; Schnegg, Pierre-André ; Falco, Pierik ; Costa, Roberto

In: Geologica Acta, 2010, vol. 8, no. 1, p. 67-82

External eastern areas of the Las Cañadas caldera (LCC) of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) have been investigated using the audiomagnetotelluric (AMT) method with the aim to characterize the physical rock properties at shallow depth and the thickness of a first resistive layer. Using the results of 50 AMT tensors carried out in the period range of 0.001 s to 0.3 s, this study provides six...

The combined use of radio-frequency electromagnetics and radiomagnetotellurics methods in non-ideal field conditions for delineating hydrogeological boundaries and for environmental problems

Dill Carvalho, Amélia ; Turberg, Pascal ; Müller, Imre ; Parriaux, Aurèle

In: Environmental Geology, 2009, vol. 56, no. 6, p. 1071-1091

Radio frequency geophysical methods are known for being very versatile tools in ground- and groundwater investigation at shallow depths. They are fast and easy to use and allow a high density of information over large surfaces, which makes them very suitable for geological mapping sensu lato (faults, lithological contacts, groundwater-bearing structures, vulnerability maps, and contaminant...

Territorial Knowledge Dynamics: From the Proximity Paradigm to Multi-location Milieus

Crevoisier, Olivier ; Jeannerat, Hugues

In: European Planning Studies, 2009, vol. 17, no. 8, p. 1223-1241

This paper addresses the issue of updating a research agenda about territorial innovation models (TIMs) such as innovative milieus, industrial districts, regional innovation systems, etc. The theoretical shift from innovation studies to the knowledge economy is taken into account by the suggested concept of territorial knowledge dynamics (TKDs). Observable major changes within society are also...

Non-technological innovation and multi-local territorial knowledge dynamics in the Swiss watch industry

Jeannerat, Hugues ; Crevoisier, Olivier

In: International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, 2011, vol. 3, no. 1, p. 26-44

Over the last few decades, territorial approaches have generally tried to explain how regions have specialised their production systems around specific path dependencies and technological innovation; how their specialisation enabled them to compete locally in the global market. Some socio-economic changes and recent theories have addressed new theoretical questions regarding new dynamics of...

Can pollution bias peatland paleoclimate reconstruction?

Payne, Richard J. ; Mitchell, Edward A. D. ; Nguyen-Viet, Hung ; Gilbert, Daniel

In: Quaternary Research, 2012, vol. 78, no. 2, p. 170-173

Peatland testate amoebae are widely used to reconstruct paleohydrological/climatic changes, but many species are also known to respond to pollutants. Peatlands around the world have been exposed to anthropogenic and intermittent natural pollution through the late Holocene. This raises the question: can pollution lead to changes in the testate amoeba paleoecological record that could be...
