presented by David Lipson, Ph.D., and Keith White
This one-day short course focuses on the contaminant hydrogeology of karst. While up to 25 percent of the world’s population depends on waters derived from karst aquifers, the karst terrain provides unique challenges to the professionals faced with characterizing, managing, and remediating sites impacted by regulated substances.
Groundwater flow and chemical transport in karst may be complicated by conduits that are difficult to locate, turbulent flow, extreme geologic heterogeneity, dual-porosity and dual-permeability regimes, and sediment transport. Because of these complexities, widespread knowledge and understanding of contaminant hydrogeology of karst is limited.
Topics that will be discussed include:
You will gain a working knowledge of:
In addition, you will receive a comprehensive compendium of course notes and a bibliography citing nearly 100 benchmark papers and other key sources of information relevant to karst hydrogeology.
Professionals faced with, or interested in, this subject.
