Water Quality Restoration of the Mammoth Cave Karst Aquifer: A Work in Progress
Over tens of thousands of years the aquatic ecosystem of the Mammoth Cave Karst Aquifer evolved in concordance with natural recharge supplied through 24,000 hectares of tall-grass prairie...

Case History of East Tennessee Karst: Static Stability of Some Shallow Caves

Seepage Control Measures for an Underground Powerstation in a Semi-Arid Region

Non-Halites and Fluids in Salt Formations, and Effects on Cavern Storage Operations

Risk Assessment and Safety Criteria for Underground Caverns

Experience in Underground Storage of Crude Oil in Salt

Design of a Deep Cavern Intersected by Weak Shale

Watercourse Master Plans: Two Case Studies
(No paper) The State of Arizona recently established statutes (ARS 48-3609.01) that enable local flood control districts to identify sensitive watercourses for floodplain management. The...

Periodic Variation in Karst Stream Losses
A cave taking water from an ephemeral stream periodically reroutes surface and subsurface drainage because of a plug that forms 10 m below the main entrance to the cave. The plug of sand,...

Karst Water Inventories Using Thermography
An airborne thermal camera was used to locate springs, swallets, and caves in a karst watershed. The detector was an imaging infrared camera with a temperature sensitivity of approximately...

Pollution Transport in Karst
A new model of pollution transport in natural streams was developed and tested. Dead zone storage is modeled as a two time constant process. This approach better matches the observed persistence...

The Projekt of an Underground Bureal of Radioactive Waste of Mean and Low Activity for the Central Region of the Russia

Deformation of Underground Deep Cavities in Rock Salts at Their Long-Term Operations

History and Development of Fabric Structures
Except for the cave, the tent has been the dwelling for most nomadic peoples from the Ice Age to the present. Until recently, the three basic forms used are namely, the conical, the widespread...

Infrared Thermographic Sensing of Sewer Pipeline Problems
When a sewer caves in, it often takes the street, sidewalks, and surrounding buildings along for the ride. These collapses endanger public health and safety. Repairing a sewer before such...

Beach and Cliff Erosion Processes at Solana Beach, California, 1984-1990
Observations of back beach elevation changes, profiles and cliff erosion over a 7-year period from 1984-1990 provide a detailed local view of these processes and rates at a typical Southern...

Conceptual Design of Salt Caves Hydroelectric Project
The Salt Caves Hydroelectric Project, as proposed by the City of Klamath Falls, Oregon, is a prime example of a project where the design has been based on elimination and minimization...

Freshwater Flow from Caves at Chankanaab Park, Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico
The freshwater forms a lense on top of the ocean water and discharges to the ocean through solution channels. One such solution channel is present in Chankanaab Park and is identified...

Data from Most Monitoring Wells in Limestone Terranes Are Irrelevant to Pollutant Detection but Reliable Monitoring Can Be Attained: Why and How
The conventional system of using three or more monitoring wells placed down-gradient from a site and one or more background wells placed up-gradient from it is extremely unlikely to detect...
