About this book

IV International Symposium on Karst Media, Malaga, Spain 2010 The Malaga Symposia Series provides an international forum for scientific debate on the progress made in research into karst environments. The 2010 meeting of the 4th International ISKA presents 80 papers in four key topics: karst hydrogeology and investigations, karst landscapes and ecosystems, human interaction with karst environments, particularly in caves, and engineering geology in karst areas. This book will be a useful edition to the libraries of consultants, scientists, lecturers, and policy makers concerned with the special issues of karst terrains.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is a summary of the 4th International Symposia about Karst (ISKA) celebrated in 2010 in Málaga (Spain). … This book is an impressive summary of advances related with the study and research of karst formations. It will provide the scientific community a very useful tool for understanding the heterogeneity and complexity of karst. Emphasis is given on knowing how to study these formations intensively, both because of their widespread occurrence and because of their potential as groundwater resources.”­­­ (Natascha Wahlberg Macías, Environmental Earth Sciences, Vol. 61, 2010)
