Sinkhole/Karst Conference 2011

Postby D Gillespie » Mar 15, 2010 5:55 pm

Intergrating Science and Engineering to Solve Karst Problems

The 12th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst will be held in St. Louis, Missour, USA, on 10-14 January 2011.

About the Conference

This highly successful interdisciplinary biennial conference series is the most important international meeting that concentrates on the practical application of karst science. It serves as a means for geologists and geographers, who study how and where karst develops and how sinkholes form, to interact with engineers and planners, who apply this information to building and maintaining society’s infrastructure while protecting our environment.

Since the first meeting in 1984, the goal of these conferences is to share knowledge, experience, and case studies that emphasize scientific understanding of karst with practical technological applications. Karst impacts groundwater and surface water resources, waste disposal and management, highways and other modes of transportation, structural foundations, utilities, and other infrastructure. Karst underlies about 25% of the USA and the land surface of the world, making this conference highly relevant to civil, geotechnical and environmental professionals, as well as to geologists, biologists, geographers, planners, developers, government officials, and others who work in karst areas.”
