Welcome to the 14th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst
The Sinkhole Conference October 5-9, 2015, Rochester, MinnesotaMayo Civic Center, Rochester, Minnesota
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, engineers, 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. Conference topics include: Karst Development & Mapping, Pro-Active and Remedial Engineering in Karst Terrain, Karst Water Resource Management. Optional Short Courses and field trips on Minnesota karst will be offered on October 5 and 6, 2015, respectively.
