Geomorphology and Hydrology of Karst Terrains
Karst terrains - irregular limestone regions characterized by sinkholes, underground streams and caverns - have long been of interest because of the dramatic landscapes and the challenge of caveExpand
Karst hydrology: recent developments and open questions
Karst aquifers are those that contain dissolution-generated conduits that permit the rapid transport of ground water, often in turbulent flow. The conduit system receives localized inputs fromExpand
Characterization of diamond films by Raman spectroscopy
As the technology for diamond film preparation by plasma-assisted CVD and related procedures has advanced, Raman spectroscopy has emerged as one of the principal characterization tools for diamondExpand
Seasonal fluctuations in the chemistry of lime-stone springs: A possible means for characterizing carbonate aquifers
The dissolved carbonate species were analyzed in the waters of 14 carbonate springs in the Central Appalachians at 2-weck intervals during water year 1967-68. The springs were classified intoExpand
This paper is a review of cave sediments: their characteristics and their application as paleoclimate archives. Cave sediments can be separated into two broad categories, clastic sediments andExpand
Raman spectroscopic investigation of the structure of silicate glasses. III. Raman intensities and structural units in sodium silicate glasses
The Raman scattering intensity of the 1100 cm−1 polarized band, which appears on the addition of Na2O to SiO2 glass, reaches a maximum at the disilicate composition. The intensity of the polarizedExpand
CAVE MINERALS OF THE WORLD, 2nd Edition.By Carol Hill and Paolo Forti. National Speleological Society, Huntsville, AL, 463 p. ISBN number: 1-879961-07-5. $70.00.
Think about all of those spectacular displays of mineral crystals that grace the world’s mineral museums. A great many of the large, faceted crystals grew in some sort of cavity over long periods ofExpand
Thermodynamic equilibrium, kinetics, activation barriers, and reaction mechanisms for chemical reactions in Karst Terrains
Abstract Chemical reactions pertinent to karst systems divide broadly into (a) speciation reactions within aqueous solutions, (b) dissolution/precipitation and other acid/base reactions betweenExpand
Lithofacies and Transport of Clastic Sediments in Karstic Aquifers
Karst aquifers demand continuous transport of clastic sediments if the conduit system is to remain open. Sediments are injected into the aquifer by sinking surface streams and through sinkholes,Expand
Karst Hydrology: Concepts from the Mammoth Cave Area
This volume has its roots in the distant past of more than 20 years ago, the International Hydrologic Decade (IHD), 1964-1974. One of the stated goals of the IHD was to promote research intoExpand
