The element chemistry of biogenic carbonates can provide important data on past environments. However, the Sr/Ca and Mg/Ca ratios as well as the Mg and Sr concentrations of biological carbonates, especially aragonitic bivalves often depart from apparent thermodynamic equilibrium. When measured in situ by means of LA-ICP-MS, the Mg concentration is often(More)
In this paper, the results of an international collaborative test case relative to the production of a Direct Numerical Simulation and Lagrangian Particle Tracking database for turbulent particle dispersion in channel flow at low Reynolds number are presented. The objective of this test case is to establish a homogeneous source of data relevant to the(More)
The problem of an accurate Eulerian-Lagrangian modeling of inertial particle dispersion in Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent wall-bounded flows is addressed. We run Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) for turbulent channel flow at Re τ = 150 and 300 and corresponding a priori and a posteriori LES on differently coarse grids. We then tracked swarms of(More)
Determining the manganese concentration in shells of freshwater bivalves provides a unique way to obtain information about climate and environmental changes during time-intervals that pre-date instrumental data records. This approach, however, relies on a thorough understanding of how manganese is incorporated into the shell material -a point that remained(More)
