Advances in Research in Karst Media by J.W. LaMoreaux (auth.), Bartolomé Andreo, Francisco

By J.W. LaMoreaux (auth.), Bartolomé Andreo, Francisco Carrasco, Juan José Durán, James W. LaMoreaux (eds.)

IV foreign Symposium on Karst Media, Malaga, Spain 2010 The Malaga Symposia sequence presents a world discussion board for clinical debate at the development made in learn into karst environments. The 2010 assembly of the 4th foreign ISKA provides eighty papers in 4 key issues: karst hydrogeology and investigations, karst landscapes and ecosystems, human interplay with karst environments, relatively in caves, and engineering geology in karst components. This booklet should be an invaluable variation to the libraries of specialists, scientists, teachers, and coverage makers desirous about the distinct problems with karst terrains.

Andreu et al. last decades, largely due to an increasing population and to the development of the agricultural, tourism and industrial sectors. This has had an impact both on the quantity and quality of groundwater resources. Knowledge of groundwater resources is thus important to guarantee suitable abstraction levels and environmental flows.

1 Spatial Variability of Autogenic Recharge in National Park of Viñales. 2). 69% of the National Park of Viñales. These areas of higher recharge are associated with development of preferential infiltration landforms in the karstified limestone. Recharges of autogenic concentrated remain prevalent in these areas. 21%, and they are principally associated with karstified limestone, Low Mountain like mogotes and ruinform height. This area is characterized by a development of a typological variety of karren clustered in extensive karrenfield.

However, in that case it is possible to calculate only the mean value for the entire catchment area, not including the spatial distribution. Very useful literary source for exploring groundwater recharge and standard measurement methods thereof is De Vries and Simmers (2002) and Scanlon et al. (2002). In late 2007, research work started on developing a new method (KARSTLOP) which would provide the Map of spatial distribution of recharge in highly karstified terrains. Given the complexity of natural conditions, it is not possible to define its absolute terms.
