UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

Speleogenesis.info has established a new section:

Speleogenesis E-Books

Speleogenesis E-Books Collection is thought to become a gateway to electronic versions of monographs, conference proceedings, open file reports and doctoral theses on karst hydrogeology and speleogenesis, that original publishers agreed to make freely accessible via this site. 

Publications included in the collection are also referenced in the KarstBase bibliography system.

The first four books, published by the Ukrainian Institute of Speleology and Karstology, University of Silesia and the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI, USA), are included and available for download (see the list below).

PDF files for the works included can be deposited onto the Speleogenesis.info server, or stored on an original publisher's server.

If you want to include an item to the Speleogenesis Ebooks Collection, please, submit a detailed bibliographic description (including abstract), a full-text PDF file and a permission for non-commercial free distribution, or a stable link to an original place from which a PDF can be downloaded.

Submissions should be sent to klim[at]speleogenesis.info .

We encourage the members of the Speleogenesis Network to assist in the development of this resource.
