Dr Heinz Hötzl is lecturer in Hydrogeology at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany. His research interests include: hydrogeology, especially of Karst and fractured rock aquifers, tracer hydrology, groundwater management and groundwater protection, contaminant transport in the groundwater and groundwater : Tapa blanda. One quarter of the world's population lives in karst terrains, yet karsts are highly vulnerable to stresses caused by human activity. This book surveys human impact on karst water, showing that the increasing pollution of the environment has, to a great extent, spoiled sensitive karst ecosystems. This text examines such consequences and offers proposals for future solutions and strategies.

The members of the IAH Karst Commission (KC) have published a large number of papers and books dealing with karst hydrogeology, which can be found on their individual homepages or using conventional search tools.

The list below includes highlights of the publications with a significant involvement of the KC members since Publications Milanovic. Get this from a library.

Congress; International Association of. Hydrogeology Journal, 25, However, about 25% of the world's population live in these regions and depend on karst aquifers for its water supply. In some regions, such as Dinaric region in Europe and Southwest China, karst water contributes to more than 50% of water supply and other areas, such as Damascus in Syria with a population of.

Four new books related to karst hydrogeology were published since Besançon These books were either coordinated by KC members or contain chapters written by our members. All books were published by Springer: – EurokarstBesançon.

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. Karst systems are extremely complex, and due to a number of geological and hydrological characteristics, they can be included among the most fragile and vulnerable environments in the world.

Karst, karstic processes, landforms and hydrogeology are explained. Each karst region in the country is described – this information is essential reading for those undertaking development or environmental protection functions in these areas.

And, importantly, the specific investigation methods needed for karst areas are described. Hydrogeological and Environmental Investigations in Karst Systems. Environmental Earth Sciences (Book 1) Thanks for Sharing. You submitted the following rating and review.

We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed : Springer Berlin Heidelberg. The objective of this Special Issue, “Hydraulic Behavior of Karst Aquifers”, is to focus on recent advances in karst hydrogeology in different areas of the world, focusing on topics dealing with the peculiar characteristics of karst aquifers.

In particular, thirteen peer-reviewed articles were collected, focusing on hydraulic aspects and their relationship with geological features Cited by: 1. This book can be seen as the appeal of a hydrologist to experts from different scientific dis ciplines (geology, hydrology, geomorphology, geography, geo physics, meteorology, ecology, civil engineering, forestry, agricul ture, etc.) to collaborate towards a better understanding of karst areas.

The two principle karst regions that are being worked in are North Cork and the Rathcroghan Uplands of Roscommon. The rationale for choosing these areas was based on the reliance on groundwater for public drinking water in each area, and previous and current scientific investigations.

that directly affect the built environment by inducing severe damage, property loss, and disruptions to daily life. Management of karst environments is a very delicate matter, and how to manage pollution, karst hazards, and human impacts on karst landscapes is a question worthy of discussion (White, ; Parise and Pascali, ).

In epigenetic karst aquifers, the direct connection between the surface and subsurface through the epikarst, sinkholes, and sinking streams means that climate, vegetation, and the overlying landscape exert first-order influences on the hydrology and geochemistry (Florea, ).Thus, changes in land use and management have a great impact upon the availability and quality of water.

Introduction. Karst refers to the processes of chemical dissolution and mechanical erosion acting on soluble rocks (mainly carbonates and evaporites), and to the surface and subsurface landforms thus produced. In their book Karst Hydrogeology and Geomorphology, Derek Ford and Paul Williams state that about 20 percent of the emerged Earth’s surface is karst, with caves representing a typical.

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.

Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) will launch David Drew’s new book ‘Karst of Ireland: Landscape – Hydrogeology – Methods’ in the GSI, Beggars Bush on Tuesday 15 th January at 6 pm.

So why do you need to know about karst? Karst is literally and metaphorically part of the bedrock of Ireland.One quarter of the world's population lives in karst terrains, yet karsts are highly vulnerable to stresses caused by human activity.

This book surveys human impact on karst water, showing that the increasing pollution of the environment has, to a great extent, spoiled sensitive karst ecosystems.As opposed to more theoretical works, this is a catalog of possible engineering interventions in karst and their implications.

Although the majority of readers will be professionals with geology/hydrogeology backgrounds, the language is not purely technical making it accessible to a wider audience.
