There will be a karst session at the AGU Fall 2016 Meeting in San Francisco, USA in December 12-16: Characterization, Modeling, and Remediation of Fissured, Carbonate, and Karst Groundwater Systems.
Session Description: Fractures, conduits and surface solution features in carbonate karst systems lead to strong surface/subsurface interactions that result in significant water, mass, energy, and contaminant transport within the critical zone. These systems are dynamic and highly heterogeneous, with complex hydrologic, geochemical, and biological processes occurring over a wide-range of spatio-temporal scales. As a result, these systems show non-linear responses and are extremely difficult to characterize, model, remediate, and manage. Particular challenges arise from lack of knowledge and technologies needed to integrate heterogeneous processes and pathways across the surface, vadose, and saturated zones, to address the hydrologic and biogeochemical responses of these systems to short- and long-term climate change, and to improve and develop the most appropriate remediation approaches. This session requests abstracts on research related to multi-scale variability, characterization, monitoring, modeling, and remediation of fissured, carbonate, and karst water systems.

Deadline: 3 August 2016.
