Cecilio López-Tercero, profesional speleologist was injured during the exploration of the karst system in Leymebamba, Amazonas, located in the Andean Cordillera.
The session on evaporite karst will be held at the South-Central Section, Geological Society of America (GSA) meeting in Stillwater, OK, on March 19-20, 2015.
The State of Minnesota has positions open for hydrologists. These positions include some for hydrogeologists.
Mine Water Solutions is a conference focused on EXTREMES and SOLUTIONS to mine water issues in very challenging environments. It will be held in Vancouver, Canada, April 12-15, 2015.
Did you know?
That geological organ is a cylindrical or funnelshaped cavity in relatively soluble bedrock which typically has a vertical orientation and is partly or wholly filled with material similar to the overlying sediment cover. they are produced by solution of bedrock and concomitant subsidence of its sedimentary cover. most have a diameter of 25 cm to 7 m and a depth of 2 to 30 m, but some may be much larger. a depth/diameter ratio of 5 to 20 may be considered representative. in actuality, geological organs are a type of subsidence doline that develops under a cover of younger rock or sediment . synonyms: (french.) orgue geologigue, poche de dissolution, puits naturel; (belgian.) abannet, cavite de dissolution; (german.) geologische orgel, orgel, unterirdische doline, verwitterungssacke, naturlicher schacht, erdorgel, erdpfeife, riesentoph, bodenkarren, (british.) sand pipe, sand-gall, gravel-pipe, pipe, pocket deposit, gull; (italian.) organo geologico; (roumanian.) orgile geologice; (czech.) geologicke varhany; (polish.) organy geologiczne; (russian.) organnaya truba, kamin; (serbo-croatian.) geoloske orgulje; (slavic) geoloske orglje, zapolvje jaski; (dutch.) geologische orgelpijp, aardpijp.?

Welcome to Karstbase!
The KarstBase is a fully searchable online bibliography database of current literature on karstology and geospeleology. It currently contains over 13 thousands references and dynamically growths. KarstBase fully covers 16 major karst and cave science journals (World Karst/Cave Science Journals) and indexes large number of publications in the field from prime geoscience journals, books and conference proceedings. Whenever possible, links are provided to full-text PDFs of published articles (directly accessible if a source publication is an open access).
Registered members of the Speleogenesis website can directly submit new references to KarstBase via the submission form, and thus contribute to this resource.
