Preliminary Studies of a Karst Warm Spring in Mt. Kräuterin, Austria
A warm spring occurs at the west foot of Mt. Kruterin, characterized by relatively higher temperature (17.4°C) and sulfate concentration (162 mg/L) against with the regional background...

Hysteresis Effect of Karst Vadose Zone in Spring Kr5, Mt. Kräuterin, Austria
Hysteresis effect is considerable in Spring Kr5, involving a chain of processes of recharge-infiltration-discharge. The lag time of each process to another can be briefly summarized and...

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...

Probabilistic Risk Assessment for Tailings Impoundment Founded on Paleokarst

Rethinking Foundation Design in Karst Residuum

Geophysical Investigation of Karst Collapse Features for a Proposed Waste Rock Stockpile Irian Jaya, Indonesia

Effects of Karst Environments on Streamflow in South Georgia

Geostatistical Description of Hydraulic Properties in Karst Aquifers: A Case Study in the Edwards Aquifer

Ataturk Dam - Hydrogeological and Hydrochemical Monitoring of Grout Curtain in Karstic Rock

Lake-Level Declines in Karst Lake During Droughts
Lake-level declines in Brooklyn Lake, a karst lake in north-central Florida, have been investigated. Below average rainfall, vertical leakage to the underlying aquifer system, declining...

Exploration/Grouting in Cambro-Ordovician Karst

Foundation Engineering Constraints in Karst Terrane
Cavity-prone carbonate rocks are found in many Appalachian valleys and represent a poorly recognized hazard. This paper reviews the nature of the problem of founding above these Cambro-Ordovician...

Quantitative Dye-Tracing of Karst Ground-Water Flow
Analysis of the results of repeat quantitative dye traces between a sinkhole and a spring used for public water supply were used to describe predictive relations between discharge, mean...

Geophysical Exploration for Cavity Detection in Karst Terrain
Detection of poor quality rock and voids has been a major research activity of the U. S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) since the mid 1970's. The principal...

Exploration of Karst Conditions in Central Florida
Walt Disney World, which comprises some 28,000 acres (11,000 ha) in central Florida, is underlain by cavernous limestone and is characterized by karst topography; with distinct low ground...

Evaluation of Reservoir Seepage in Karst Topography
Areas where seepage is likely to occur in the karst environment of the proposed West County Reservoir, Roanoke County, Virginia have been indentified. Solutioning exists in the form of...

Exploring Karst Terrain with Air Track Drilling
Pneumatic-powered track-mounted, percussion drills can be used to perform or augment geotechnical investigations in some karst settings. The air track drill is best suited to exploring...

Karstic Foundation Problems Sunny Point Railroad
Active limestone sinkholes have been causing problems and affecting the operation of the access railroad to the Military Ocean Terminal, Sunny Point, North Carolina (MOTSU) since 1962....

Geotechnical Exploration and Site Preparation Techniques for Large Mall in Karst Terrain
A large commercial mall and secondary developments were planned for construction in a karst area near Clarksville, Tennessee. A geotechnical exploration was conducted to evaluate the occurence...
