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".
Did you know?
That Darcy-Weisbach equation is an empirical equation given as which states that in contrast to laminar flow, the average volumetric discharge of flow is directly proportional to the square root of the driving force and that the friction loss is equal to the hydraulic head . note: q=discharge, a=crosssectional area, r=hydraulic radius of the conduit, g=gravitational acceleration, f=some friction factor, dh/dl=gradient, and i have attached a negative sign to indicate that ground-water flow occurs in the direction of decreasing head. in most instances, a negative sign is not included because it is not possible to take the square root of a negative number.?
