Ecoregional Governance: Transboundary Environmental Cooperation in the Carpatho-Danubian Area

Voyloshnikova, Daria ; Casasus, Gilbert (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2020.

The dissertation examines the contemporary environmental governance complex covering the transboundary area of the Carpathians and Danube with a focus on ecoregional approach. The strategic importance of these two geographical objects accounts for an intertwined system of varied institutions and initiatives contributing to addressing ecological challenges in the area through international...

Geochemical fingerprinting of key lithologies and depositional processes across the upper boundary of the Opalinus Clay (Aalenian, Middle Jurassic, northern Switzerland)

Lauper, Bruno ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Vogel, Hendrik ; Jaeggi, David ; Wohlwend, Stephan ; Ariztegui, Daniel ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: The Depositional Record, 2021, vol. 7, no. 1, p. 25-51

The Opalinus Clay is an argillaceous to silty mudstone formation, notable in Switzerland as the selected host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. Its upper bounding unit (Passwang Formation and eastern equivalents) is composed of successions of mudstone, sandy bioclastic marl and limestone separated by ooidal ironstone beds. The lithostratigraphic transition is diachronous...

Notes on the cheek region of the Late Jurassic theropod dinosaur Allosaurus

Evers, Serjoscha W. ; Foth, Christian ; Rauhut, Oliver W.M.

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e8493

Allosaurus, from the Late Jurassic of North America and Europe, is a model taxon for Jurassic basal tetanuran theropod dinosaurs. It has achieved an almost iconic status due to its early discovery in the late, 19th century, and due to the abundance of material from the Morrison Formation of the western U.S.A., making Allosaurus one of the best-known theropod taxa. Despite this, various...

Late Jurassic theropod dinosaur bones from the Langenberg Quarry (Lower Saxony, Germany) provide evidence for several theropod lineages in the central European archipelago

Evers, Serjoscha W. ; Wings, Oliver

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e8437

Marine limestones and marls in the Langenberg Quarry provide unique insights into a Late Jurassic island ecosystem in central Europe. The beds yield a varied assemblage of terrestrial vertebrates including extremely rare bones of theropod from theropod dinosaurs, which we describe here for the first time. All of the theropod bones belong to relatively small individuals but represent a wide...

Age and synchronicity of planktonic foraminiferal bioevents across the Cenomanian – Turonian boundary interval (Late Cretaceous)

Falzoni, Francesca ; Petrizzo, Maria Rose ; Caron, Michèle ; Leckie, R. Mark ; Elderbak, Khalifa

In: Newsletters on Stratigraphy, 2018, vol. 51, no. 3, p. 343–380

The upper Cenomanian – lower Turonian is a key-stratigraphic interval, as it encompasses the Late Cretaceous supergreenhouse and a major perturbation of the global carbon cycle (i. e., Oceanic Anoxic Event 2) as evidenced by a global positive carbon isotope excursion and by the nearly world-wide deposition of organic-rich marine facies. A turnover in planktonic foraminiferal assemblages and...

Early-stage sustainability evaluation of nanoscale cathode materials for lithium ion batteries

Hischier, Roland ; Kwon, Nam Hee ; Brog, Jean?Pierre ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: ChemSusChem, 2018, vol. 11, no. 13, p. 2068–2076

Results of an early-stage sustainability evaluation of two development strategies for new nanoscale cathode materials for Li-ion batteries are reported: (i) a new production pathway for an existing material (LiCoO2) and (ii) a new nanomaterial (LiMnPO4). Nano-LiCoO2 was synthesized by a single-source precursor route at a low temperature with a short reaction time, which results in a smaller...
