    The development of a national geographic information system GIS for British karst geohazards and risk assessment. The authors think it probable that this confining layer is now developing by a process of sedimentation and precipitation of pore-filling cement on and near the surface of older limestone at the landward margin of the swamp that extends virtually continuously along the north Yucatan coast. For this reason, a 3. Vol 53, also digital publication DOI The engineering significance of the sinkholes and the design of ground investigations are discussed in the light of experience gained from past projects in this area and the established risk of pollution of the chalk aquifer Edmonds, Clive N. In regions of carbonate bedrock, this process can create of underground fissures and caves.

    Coulton, Clive N. Environmental Geology Dependence of nitrate concentration in the stream water on the drainage function. Another example of research in this area include the case of highway runoff in Knoxville TN and Frederick, MD, where stormwater runoff seems to flow directly into sinkholes and to the karst conduits below. There are two basic types of sinkhole-forming collapses: 1 bedrock collapses, and 2 regolith collapses. Land use was also determined from the aerial photos with some field checking.

    Natural and induced halite karst geohazards in Great Britain. Significant to property inspectors, the first signs that a sinkhole was developing in Dasietta Texas was the opening up of cracks in the ground and in the roadway on the morning of the collapse. Inertia is a characteristic to the inflow of biogenic materials into the rivers. Construction, and its grading of the surface, thins the unconsolidated deposits above existing sinkholes. Air temperature observations in the active karst zone were started only in [ 12 ].

Florida's sinkholes also include phantom lakes or "ghost lakes" such as Lake Jackson. Land use was also determined from the aerial photos with some field checking. Alternately, a graded drain may be used when the drainage to the sinkhole must be maintained. Once contaminants have reached the subsurface conduits, they are likely to be rapidly transported to spring outlets.

Gutierrez, F. Interpretation and analysis of the cores continues and will be published by the FGS upon completion.

Beck scholarship

Hoke and Wicks suggest that using a linear systems approach is useful because it describes basin transport in terms of the distribution of travel or as a residence time -- and without having to have detailed knowledge of internal structure.

Rather, they propose that modeling transport is much more accurate if it is done on a "basin scale" perspective, because the hydraulic geometry is exceedingly complex and transport depends on volume, shape, location of conduits, position of conduits relative to the water table and the degree of development of other karst features, like sinkholes and losing streams.

In caves, a variety of features collectively called speleothems are formed by deposition of calcium carbonate and other dissolved minerals. Nitrate nitrogen concentration a and total phosphorus concentration b in sandy soil water. Traditional aquifer remediation techniques for contaminated aquifers are less applicable to karst aquifers.

The recommendations that they made to avoid problems of flooding and subsidence included: laying out housing sites to preserve existing grading and pattern of storm water flow. Karst rivers are recharged mainly through the precipitation.
