T116: Karst Critical Zone Session GSA Denver 2016
We would like to bring to your attention the Karst Critical Zone session (T116) at the GSA Conference (Geological Society of America) September 25th - 28th, 2016, in Denver, Colorado.
Karst Critical Zones--the zone stretching from the top of the canopy to the interface where groundwater is chemically equilibrated with the bedrock-- are governed by rapid carbonate mineral reaction rates; as such, climatic or anthropogenic disturbances that change salinity, vegetation, precipitation, temperature, residence time and/or flow patterns can significantly alter their structure and function. We welcome abstracts from field, laboratory and modeling studies related to these processes in the Karst Critical Zone.
Abstracts are due July 12th. http://community.geosociety.org/gsa2016/home
