H094 : Hydrological, Geomorphological, Biological, and Geochemical Processes in Karst Aquifers
"Karst aquifers supply 25% of the world’s population with drinking water. Understanding of the physical and biogeochemical processes in karst aquifers, however, lags far behind conventional aquifers, which lack the heterogeneity and turbulent flow that characterize karst aquifers. Improved understanding of the processes controlling hydrological response, flow and transport, geochemistry, and their interaction with subterranean ecosystems, is fundamental to developing rational management strategies for karst aquifers. In an effort to promote quantitative, cross-disciplinary karst research, this session solicits abstracts from studies of karst hydrology, geomorphology, biology and/or geochemistry."
