NEW Book - "Karst Aquifers - Characterization and Engineering"

BOOK PROMOTION

Stevanović, Zoran (Ed.)
Written by 22 authors, experts in Karst hydrogeology from 11 countries. 692 pages, 17 chapters.   This practical training guidebook makes an important contribution to karst hydrogeology. It presents supporting material for academic courses worldwide that include this and similar topics. It is an excellent sourcebook for students and other attendees of the International Karst School: Characterization and Engineering of Karst Aquifers, which opened in Trebinje, Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2014 and which will be organized every year in early summer.

  • Concise explanation of karst and exploration methods
  • Systematic and step-by-step explanations facilitate understanding of how to sustainably use and protect groundwater
  • Great number of practical examples and lessons
  • Considerable number of sketches and figures perfectly illustrate the descriptions provided

As opposed to more theoretical works, this is a catalog of possible engineering interventions in karst and their implications. Although the majority of readers will be professionals with geology/hydrogeology backgrounds, the language is not purely technical making it accessible to a wider audience. This means that the methodology, case studies and experiences presented will also benefit water managers working in karst environments.
