Quantification of Lithological Heterogeneity Within Opalinus Clay : Toward a Uniform Subfacies Classification Scheme Using a Novel Automated Core Image Recognition Tool

Lauper, Bruno ; Zimmerli, Géraldine N. ; Jaeggi, David ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Wohlwend, Stephan ; Rempfer, Johannes ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Frontiers in Earth Science, 2021, vol. 9, p. 645596

The Opalinus Clay is notable in Switzerland as being the selected host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. Since the early 1990’s, this argillaceous mudstone formation of Jurassic age has been intensively studied within the framework of national and international projects to characterize its geological, hydrological, mechanical, thermal, chemical, and biological...

The antibody response to Plasmodium falciparum : cues for vaccine design and the discovery of receptor-based antibodies

Tan, Joshua ; Piccoli, Luca ; Lanzavecchia, Antonio

In: Annual Review of Immunology

P. falciparum remains a serious public health problem and a continuous challenge for the immune system due to the complexity and diversity of the pathogen. Recent advances from several laboratories in the characterization of the antibody response to the parasite have led to the identification of critical targets for protection and revealed a new mechanism of diversification based on the...

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...

The Christmas Drama of the Household of St John's College, Oxford

Dutton, Elisabeth

In: Household Knowledges: The Home Life of Information in Late Medieval England and France, 2019, p. 100-128

This article explores the tradition of Christmas drama at St John's College, Oxford, where plays both Latin and English, of high and low culture, were central to festive celebrations in the late medieval and early modern periods.

Elizabeth and Oxford, staging power in the university drama. Dido and Oxford: Stagins Power in the University Drama

Dutton, Elisabeth

In: Théâtralisation des arts et des lettres de la Renaissance anglaise, 2018, p. 195-206

The intended authorial title is 'Elizabeth I, Dido and Oxford: Staging Power in the University Drama', and not the one given by mistake at the time of publication. Recent studies of Elizabethan University drama, particularly those focused upon Elizabeth’s visits to the Universities, have considerably advanced our understanding of why particular plays might have been selected as appropriate...

Eighteen years of steel–bentonite interaction in the FEBEX in situ test at the Grimsel Test Site in Switzerland

Hadi, Jebril ; Wersin, Paul ; Serneels, Vincent ; Greneche, Jean-Marc

In: Clays and Clay Minerals, 2019, vol. 67, no. 2, p. 111–131

Corrosion of steel canisters containing buried high-level radioactive waste is a relevant issue for the long-term integrity of repositories. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate this issue by examining two differently corroded blocks originating from a full-scale in situ test of the FEBEX bentonite site in Switzerland. The FEBEX experiment was designed initially as a feasibility...

Multi-proxy facies analysis of the Opalinus Clay and depositional implications (Mont Terri rock laboratory, Switzerland)

Lauper, Bruno ; Jaeggi, David ; Deplazes, Gaudenz ; Foubert, Anneleen

In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2018, vol. 111, no. 3, p. 383–398

Located in NW Switzerland, the Mont Terri rock laboratory is a research facility primarily investigating the Opalinus Clay as potential host rock for deep geological disposal of radioactive waste. In the Mont Terri area, this Jurassic shale formation is characterized by three distinctive lithofacies: a shaly facies, a carbonate-rich sandy facies and a sandy facies. However, the lithological...
