UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

A session regarding remediation of karst aquifers has been added to Battelle’s upcoming Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds. This is a first for this, the premier international conference focusing on remediating challenging contaminated sites.

Historically, remediating environmental impacts in karst terranes has received little attention in the peer-reviewed literature or at national remediation conferences. It is time that the environmental-remediation industry begin to focus on, discuss, and tackle this important problem.  If you are involved in research related to remediating karst aquifers, are planning or have conducted a remedial action in a karst aquifer, or can add insight to this topic, here is the ideal forum to present your findings and help further the discussion on this salient topic! Here are the details:

Conference: Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds (Monterey, California; May 19-22, 2014)

Prospective Session Title: Remediation in Karst Aquifers

Session Chairs: Keith A. White, CPG and Ralph O. Ewers, PhD.

Abstract Due Date: September 15, 2013!

1. Placement cannot be guaranteed. Most platform sessions will have 4 or 6 platform slots. Additional abstracts appropriate for presentation in the session will be scheduled as posters.

2. All presenting authors are expected to register and pay the standard fees. This policy is necessary because registration fees are the major source of funding for the Conference, and a significant percentage of registrants will make presentations or chair sessions.
