UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

The Karst Information Portal (KIP) is now functional and prepared to accept both user registrations and collection content. Please, visit http://www.karstportal.org/

This project is the culmination of two years of planning and relationship-building and yet represents but the beginning. The goal is a worldwide information network, easily accessible to scientists and researchers, as a means to inform research, to create innovative linkages among karst scientists and their research results, and to address policy decisions in karst environments.

Although KIP overlaps with some functions/tasks, which had been pursued during last five years by the Speleogenesis.info site, we are working closely with KIP on coordinating/adjusting things in order to avoid unnecessary competition/duplication and make two sites complementary to each other.
