The activities of the IAH Karst Commission are financially supported by two sponsors. The funds are primarily used to maintain this up-to-date website and to award a “Young Karst Researcher Prize” for the best work presented at our annual commission meetings and conferences (see under News / forthcoming meetings).
MWH is a multi-disciplined global team of program managers, business consultants, engineers, geologists, operators, scientists, technologists and regulatory experts all contributing toward providing solutions that reflect best practices in wet infrastructure knowledge, experience and innovation. Karst-related projects include studies on the impact of mines on regional karst groundwater resources in the Peruvian Andes.
Enviroscan, Inc. is a woman-owned small business specializing exclusively in geophysics. The purpose and benefits of geophysics are illustrated nowhere better than in karst terranes where abrupt lateral changes in hydrogeological properties are easily overlooked by conventional drilling. Our headquarters sit on a karst formation, and our experience includes extensive application of resistivity, electromagnetic, seismic, and gravity methods, as well as borehole geophysical logging and imaging to characterize karst aquifers. http://www.enviroscan.com/
Programs of the Hoffman Environmental Research Institute at Western Kentucky University aim to better understand landscape/atmosphere/water/human interactions, with a special emphasis on karst hydrogeology, geochemistry and geomorphology. Support of selected awardees of the IAH Young Karst Researcher Prize is made possible through a generous contribution from Stan and Kay Sides, with which the Hoffman Institute enhances karst-related research and education, particularly with an international dimension.
