UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

Dear Colleagues,

This is to draw your attention to several recent publications added to KarstBase, relevant to hypogenic karst/speleogenesis:

Corrosion of limestone tablets in sulfidic ground-water: measurements and speleogenetic implications
Galdenzi, Sandro
International Journal of Speleology, 2012, Vol 41, Issue 2, p. 35-55

Speleogenetic effects of interaction between deeply derived fracture-conduit and intrastratal matrix flow in hypogene karst settings
Klimchouk, A.B., Tymokhina, E.I., Amelichev, G.N.
International Journal of Speleology, 2012, Vol 41, Issue 2, p. 37-55

Hypogenic contribution to speleogenesis in a predominant epigenic karst system: A case study from the Venetian Alps, Italy
Tisato Nicola, Sauro Francesco, Bernasconi Stefano M. , Bruijn Rolf H. C. , De Waele Jo
Geomorphology, 2012, Vol 151, p. 156-163

L’altération de type "fantôme de roche" : processus, évolution et implications pour la karstification
Quinif Yves, Bruxelles Laurent
Géomorphologie : relief, processus, environnement, 2011, Vol 4

You can download these publications following the links to PDF files on respective original websites.

As a part of collaboration within the HypoKarst, we suggest that the project members inform each other about their own and other published works relevant to the topic. An easy way to do this, and generally promote the readership for your papers, is to submit publications to the KarstBase through the online submission form.

(One needs to be registered to access the form)

By including words “hypogene” or “hypogenic” in the keywords (if they are not present within the title), you’ll make the publication appearing in the respective search selection that represens current bibliography on hypogene karst/speleogenesis.

Check this link regularly if you want to stay updated on current publications in the field.

Best wishes!
