About this book

Please note: this is a translation of the French book Karstologie: Karsts, Grottes et Sources published by Dunod, Paris, in 2011.

Karst landscapes are home to 25% of the world's drinking water supplies, and in many countries water supply is highly dependent on karst aquifers. Their unique structures, containing many voids, are a particular problem for building corporations and land developers. Fundamental and Applied Karstology, written by the well-known karstologist Eric Gilli, presents a diverse range of chapters on: history of karstology, aquifers and their characterization, water supply management, coastal and submarine karsts, evolution of karst and paleokarst, paleontology, tourism, and oil and mineral reserves.
