KIG Mission

The KIG is a loose-knit, group of USGS and non-USGS scientists and researchers devoted to fostering better communication among scientists working on, or interested in, karst science. The primary mission of the KIG is to encourage and support interdisciplinary collaboration and technology transfer among scientists working in karst areas. Additionally, the KIG encourages collaborative studies between the different mission areas of the USGS as well as other Federal and State agencies, and with researchers from academia and institutes. It accomplishes this mission through a workshop held every 3 years in a location proposed by a participant of the workshop. This is the 7th USGS KIG Workshop.
