Concerns about groundwater contamination, possible groundwater flowing into nearby Mammoth Cave National Park (MCNP) and sinkhole collapses resulted in a grant from the Inter-Modal Transportation Authority, Inc. of Bowling Green to the Center for Cave and Karst Studies (CCKS) to investigate these potential karst hydrogeologic problems. Annual meeting of the IAH Karst Commission – The Karst Commisson held its annual meeting on September 26 at the Trade Fairs and Congress Center of Malaga, during the 46th Congress of the IAH. The meeting was coordinated by chairman Augusto Auler, assisted by co-chairman Zoran Stevanović and was well attended with approximately 35 .

The meeting of the 4th International ISKA presents 80 papers in four key topics: karst hydrogeology and investigations, karst landscapes and ecosystems, human interaction with karst environments, particularly in caves, and engineering geology in karst areas. This book will be a useful edition to the libraries of consultants, scientists. same examples of transboundary groundwater resources management from the Dinaric karst region will be given. The Dinaric karst, situated along the east Adriatic coast, is particularly well developed and deep, with very specific karst geomorphologic forms. In the past the necessity of investigating the.

Further investigations and in-depth studies aimed at clearly understanding the dynamics of the karst groundwater, thus preventing the aggravation of problems with the groundwater in the future. This paper presents a demonstration of an integrated risk assessment and site investigation for groundwater contamination through a case study, in which the geologic and hydrogeological feature of the site and the blueprint of the fossil power plant (FPP) were closely analyzed.

Predictions for groundwater contamination in case of accidents were performed by groundwater Cited by: Karst groundwater is an incredible natural resource.

It provides drinking water for many of our residents, beautiful springs to feed our waterways and habitat for many unusual underground species. The quality of the groundwater is dependent upon how we use the land and how well we protect the quality of groundwater old adage is that.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF KARST HYDROGEOLOGY: CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE NSS WILLIAM B.

Hydromythology and the Ancient Greek World: An Earth Science Perspective Emphasizing Karst Hydrology is the first integration of hydrology (water science) and karstology (a branch of geology) with Greek and Latin mythographic narratives spanning the millennium from Homer to Pausanias.

Author-editor Cindy Clendenon demonstrates that karstic terrains commonly found throughout Greece were Cited by: 8. Karst is a topography formed from the dissolution of soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, and is characterized by underground drainage systems with sinkholes and caves. It has also been documented for more weathering-resistant rocks, such as quartzite, given the right conditions.

Subterranean drainage may limit surface water, with few to no rivers or lakes. In limestone strata, adverse karst structures develop, and karst caves in front of the tunnel face are one of the major potential geological disaster sources in tunnel construction.

Early geological drilling exploration found that the average groundwater level is − m, while the limestone stratum is basically below the phreatic by: The aim of this study was the assessment of groundwater vulnerability and pollution risk of the Perivleptos karst aquifer in the northwestern part of Greece.

Hence, the EPIK method has been applied within the study area. Additionally, a detailed literature overview has been obtained, including the worldwide application of the EPIK method.

The hazard map has been developed for the Author: Anastasia Vogelbacher, Nerantzis Kazakis, Konstantinos Voudouris, Steffen Bold. Karst Groundwater Flow Model Unconfined Aquifer and a Simulated Karst-type Aquifer The ground water flow models are used to demonstrate ground water movement principles.

The model is constructed with clear plexiglass which allows viewers to watch how the water within a ground water system moves. The movement of water towards a pumping well can be easily observed. Karst systems constitute valuable freshwater resources in Crete island, a region of Greece that is threatened by water scarcity.

The present work refers to evaluation of the available groundwater potential in a karst terrain and contributes to providing adequate quantities of fresh water to the central southern Crete (Rethimno prefecture). The available groundwater potential was estimated by Author: Emmanouil Steiakakis.

Understanding karst aquifers, for purposes of their management and protection, poses unique challenges. Karst aquifers are characterized by groundwater flow through conduits (tertiary porosity), and (or) layers with interconnected pores (secondary porosity) and through intergranular porosity (primary or matrix porosity).

Karst aquifers provide drinkable water for hundreds of millions of people, accounting for 25% of the world and 40% of the US groundwater resources (Ford and Williams ; Quinlan and Ewers ).Karst aquifers have complex characteristics that make them different from other aquifers (Bakalowicz ).They form in soluble rocks, such as dolomite and limestone, Cited by:.
