UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

I am convening the following karst session at the annual GSA meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina November 4-7, 2012. 

  • Title:  T18. The Evolution of Karst Landscapes through Time in Response to Changing Hydrologic, Geomorphic, and Tectonic Conditions
  • Description:  How do the characteristics of karst terrain change in response to changes in hydrology, geomorphology, and tectonism? How are these changes reflected in the landscape and hydrogeology? Recent advances in methodology will also be highlighted.
  • Invited speakers:   Derek Ford, Ralph Ewers, Eric Peterson
  • Sesssion Sponsors: GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; GSA Hydrogeology Division; National Cave and Karst Research Institute  

The abstract submission deadline is fast approaching (8/14/2012 at midnight Pacific time), and 12 or more abstracts must be submitted or the session will be cancelled!  As of mid-day on 8/13, 3 abstracts have been submitted….

We in the karst community are finally enjoying recognition by national, non-karst organizations, so please take advantage of the opportunity to have your research showcased!

Thank you!  See you in Charlotte!
