The Karst Information Portal (KIP) is now functional and prepared to accept both user registrations and collection content. Please, visit

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 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.
