A pdf file including text and figures should be submitted by e-mail (a.anceau@ulg.ac.be).

Alternatively, three printed copies may be submitted to the editor together with the address of the corresponding author (fax, e-mail). Original artworks are not necessary for the submission of the manuscript.

The authors are requested to give the names and addresses of four possible unbiased reviewers, at least one of them being chosen outside Belgium.

9. Final version

9.1. Text

Send all files (text, artworks, tables) by mail or on a CD to the editor. Each artwork as a separate file.

The requested software is Word and .doc format. Use the TIMES 12 throughout the text including titles.

Use the same file for text, references and artwork captions; these should not be included in the text or merged with the figures, but put together at the end of the manuscript and presented as follows:

Figure 1.Caption

Table 1.Title ...

Plate 1.Title ...

9.2. Original artworks

Please note that Geologica Belgica being an open access journal, the final size of a paper in pdf format must permit easy dissemination by e-mail. Thus the number and size of figures and plates must be reasonable.

No original artwork should be larger than a page (17 x 22.5 cm) or a column (8 x 22.5 cm). No lettering should be smaller than 1 mm at journal format. Artworks are executed neatly in black China ink or equivalent quality (e.g. laser printer); do not use heavy plots; avoid grey-tones. Figures in colour are accepted. Please save space as much as possible.

Electronic figures should be in ai (Adobe Illustrator), and/or pdf format. All elements of a figure must be "grouped" before saving. No graphics in Excel format will be accepted. Please try to use the same format for all figures. Do not mention the figure number on the figure. Do not group the figures but provide one file for each figure and table.

9.2.3. Running title (top of each page)

In case the title of the paper is longer than 60 characters including space, the authors should provide an abbreviated title.

W. CAVAZZA, F.M. ROURE, W. SPAKMAN, G.M. STAMPFLI, P.A. ZIEGLER (Editors) 2004. The TRANSMED Atlas. The Mediterranean region from crust to mantle. Geological and geophysical framework. Springer, Berlin. 141 p. Hardcover. ISBN 3-54022181-6. Net price EUR 79,95

This Atlas consist of a book and a CD-ROM. It provides the current state-of-the-art on the geodynamic architecture and history of the Mediterranean region, established around sixteen lithospheric transects across the entire Mediterranean region. This work is the result of the TRANSMED project and forms an integration of new and existing data on surface geology, seismic profiles and mantle tomography, both on land and at sea.

The book consists of three chapters. The first chapter gives an overview of the geodynamic architecture of the Mediterranean region. The Mediterranean fold-and-thrust belts and marine basins are discussed. The geophysical constraints, such as heat flow, stress field, seismicity, …, are summarized. An overview is given of examples of active and ancient geodynamic processes from the Mediterranean region. The second chapter discusses the Mediterranean geodynamics from a tomographic perspective. The final chapter gives an overview on the constraints on the paleotectonic evolution of the Mediterranean region since the break-up of Gondwana. The book is finally completed with an extensive reference list.

The CD-ROM offers an unique opportunity to explore interactively the different lithospheric transects across the Mediterranean. For each transect a general discussion on the lithospheric architecture is given. The data base, on which the transects are based, is outlined. The different litho- and tectonostratigraphic units are described. Finally, the geodynamic evolution along each transect is presented. The CD-ROM is completed with additional material on the tomographic sections and models, and on the paleogeographic reconstructions.

The TRANSMED Atlas is a very interesting work for those who are working in the Mediterranean and are in need of a concise overview of the current ideas on the geodynamic evolution of this particular region. It is definitively not intended for a general public. A great asset of this atlas is the extensive, up-to-date reference list. The atlas is very well illustrated. The CD-ROM is, moreover, very user friendly.

The author presents an overview of nearly all factors affecting subsurface water chemistry.

The first part of this book deals with the natural chemistry of aquifers, giving firstly a brief introduction on the water cycle (chapter1), geology and soils (chapter 2), and hydrogeology with special emphasis on karst hydrogeology (chapter 3). The natural processes affecting groundwater chemistry are divided in processes mainly affecting superficial aquifers on short time scales, like soil exchange and redox processes (chapter 4), and processes affecting deep aquifers on geologic time scales, i.e. groundwater mixing, water-rock equilibrium and ion exchange (chapter 5). The use of isotopes in hydrogeology is also explained in this chapter.

The second and third parts are devoted to pollution of groundwater, respectively through diffuse sources and through point sources.

After an introduction on transfer of pollutants through soils (chapter 6), in the second part nitrates and pesticides (chapter 7 & 8) are treated as the most important diffuse sources of pollution to groundwater.

The discussion on pollution through point sources in the third part, namely heavy metals and trace elements (chapter 10) and organic pollutants (chapter 11), is preceded by a chapter about  toxicity and risk assessment of polluted sites (chapter 9).

The last part of the book gives general background information on (groundwater) chemistry and geochemical modelling (chapters 14 & 15), but also provides the reader with information about French groundwater related legislation, sampling procedures and remediation of polluted sites (chapters 12 & 13).

Given the wide range of topics treated in his book, it is not surprising that the author has chosen to illustrate most of the topics with examples from the recent literature, with emphasis on research carried out in Europe, especially in France. The book thus gives a good introduction to groundwater chemistry for people with a background in hydrogeology and geochemistry, providing an extensive literature overview for the interested reader.

It can be mentioned however that the quality (readability) of some of the figures is uncertain.

Le sous-titre de l’ouvrage résume bien le contenu réel de ce livre. Au chapitre 1, les réglementations françaises et européennes sont abordées en distinguant bien les problématiques différentes des eaux destinées à la consommation humaine et non minérales, des eaux minérales, des eaux thermales, des eaux récréatives, des eaux utilisées pour l’élevage de crustacés (conchylicoles) et des eaux résiduaires. Ensuite au chapitre 2, un descriptif précis est donné sur les contrôles sanitaires organisés pour les différents types d’eau. Dans chaque cas, l’organisation des contrôles, les procédures suivies, la logistique nécessaire, l’interprétation des résultats et la gestion de l’information et de l’éventuel risque sont décrits avec rigueur.

Au chapitre 3, l’auteur aborde plus en profondeur les techniques générales de recherche et de dénombrement des bactéries dans les eaux. Cet inventaire des techniques actuellement utilisées semble très complet. Le chapitre 4 aborde la problématique des recherches et dénombrements microbiologiques spécifiques dans les eaux en passant en revue les principaux aspects relatifs aux salmonelles, staphylocoques, pseudomonas aeruginosa, légionelles, vibrio, listeria monocytogenes.

Le chapitre 5 de cet ouvrage rassemble énormément d’informations relatives à la ‘Base technique microbiologique des eaux’ : les examens microscopiques, les tests biochimiques utiles et les milieux de culture.

L’auteur termine l’ouvrage avec un chapitre sur des informations complémentaires microbiologiques, environnementales et sanitaires (chap. 6) et sur des compléments sur la réglementation et informations diverses (chap. 7).

Cet ouvrage présente un très bon tableau général et détaillé (à la limite de l’encyclopédique) sur les aspects microbiologiques expérimentaux. Néanmoins, l’insertion de ces aspects dans les systèmes d’évaluation de la qualité des eaux (plus généraux) reste relativement lapidaire (chap. 7). Par exemple, l’évocation (en quelques lignes) du Système d’Evaluation de la Qualité des eaux (SEQ) mériterait un paragraphe voire un chapitre.

Il s’agit d’un ouvrage de référence très utile pour toute personne, désirant obtenir de l’information sur les techniques d’analyses nécessaires à la surveillance microbiologique. Il pourrait également être très utile aussi à tous les non-spécialistes du domaine, qui doivent utiliser ou interpréter des résultats de ces analyses.

La table des matières est très détaillée permettant au lecteur désireux de vérifier une information précise de vite trouver ce qu’il désire. Une table des abréviations et un index sont fournis et sont d’ailleurs fort utiles.
