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 West Virginia karst will be offered on April 3, 2018.
