The International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds is the world’s largest and most comprehensive meeting on the application of innovative and existing technologies and approaches for characterization, monitoring and management of chlorinated and complex sites. The topic of karst was conspicuously absent at the first eight iterations of this conference. At the 9th Conference, a karst session -- headlined by a presentation by Dr. Derek Ford -- was held and well attended...
The Geological Survey of Spain (IGME) is conducting a research into the Cerro del Cuevon (-1589 m), the deepest cave of Spain and one of the top ten around the world.
International Speleological Congress will be held in 2017 in Sydney, Australia
Contributions are invited for the special issue on the topic of "Geophysical imaging in karst terrain", which will be published in AIMS Geosciences in 2016.
There is ongoing preparation of two interlinked activities relevant to hypogene karst: the DeepKarst 2016 Conference and the book “Selected Hypogene Karst Regions and Caves of the World".

That paleokarstic surface is a surface, preserved within a carbonate succession, that was formed by the effects of karst erosion. the presence of a paleokarstic surface indicates that during the deposition of the full rock sequence the young rocks were exposed to the effects of surface (subaerial) erosion. during such a nondepositional and erosional phase a full suite of karst features, including caves, could develop .?

1. A plot of relative concentration versus time, where relative concentration is defined as C/Co with C as the concentration at a point in the ground-water flow domain, and Co as the source concentration . 2. A plot of tracer concentration, C, versus time, t, for a ground-water tracing study in karst conduit for the purpose of quantitatively determining how much tracer mass was recovered, mean time of travel, mean tracer flow velocity, and related hydraulic flow and geometric parameters. Synonyms: recovery curve; tracerbreakthrough curve; tracer-recovery curve.
