Funding Increase for NCKRI!

 

NCKRI has received a $500,000 increase in its annual federal support! Senator Martin Heinrich picked up the ball to start this effort and Senator Tom Udall carried it to the finish line. NCKRI is a non-profit organization funded through a combination of federal, State of New Mexico, and private support. We thank the senators, their fabulous staffs, and the National Park Service who worked together to make this possible. Stay tuned in the coming months for more news as we put those funds to good use.

Graduate Student Karst Hydrology Research Assistantships Available: University of Guam

 

Dear recent graduates in natural sciences, engineering, math or computer science:

 

The University of Guam’s Water & Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific (WERI) is offering two two-year research assistantships beginning August 2018 (Fall Semester, Fanuchanan) or January 2019 (Spring Semester, Fanomnakan) for research work in karst hydrology and/or remote sensing that can earn you a Master of science degree in UOG’s graduate Environmental Science program.  The project is funded by NASA EPSCoR, and is collaborative with the University of Hawaii’s College of Engineering (UHCOE). Researchers on Guam will use self-guiding unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) developed by UHCOE engineering faculty and students to collect, analyze, and interpret thermal imagery to locate and estimate freshwater discharge into coastal waters from the limestone aquifer of northern Guam. The University of Guam is a US Land Grant University accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and WERI is one of the nation’s top-ranked National Institutes for Water Resources Research.

 

Fieldwork will include locating, mapping, and measuring freshwater discharge from coastal caves, fractures, and submerged springs. Measurements will provide ground truth by which to calibrate remotely-sensed estimates of freshwater discharge from thermal imagery collected by UAVs. Graduate research assistants at the University of Guam will work with teams of UOG and UHCOE researchers to deploy and operate UAVs, collect field data in the coastal zone, and analyze and interpret remotely-sensed data in light of ground-based field data. Research assistantships will pay a salary plus tuition and fees for two years for work leading to a Master of Science degree in Environmental Science.

 

If you would like to do cutting-edge research in remote-sensing, GIS, and/or coastal karst hydrogeology while earning an MSci. in Environmental Science and living and working on a tropical island in the western Pacific, please contact Dr. John Jenson, Director, WERI, and/or Dr. Romina King, Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Guam at the addresses below.  You may apply on-line through the Research Corporation University of Guam-Job Announcements, at the link below.  

 

To learn more about this opportunity and see some photos what could be your field area, take a look at the presentation in the link below, or contact Dr. John Jenson, WERI Director at jjenson@triton.uog.edu or Dr. Romina King at roking@triton.uog.edu. www.uog.edu

Call for Karst Spring Discharge Data for Common Publication

 

Dear karst researcher,

 

The aim of this project is to make a large number of karst spring discharge observations publicly available, which we believe will bring great advancement to the karst research community.

 

Since 2015, we have been collecting data of karst spring discharge observations across the globe from national databases, published articles, PhD theses, NGO reports, and—most importantly—from research partners like you.

 

The data collection will continue until October and we will be glad to expand the database with your data. All datasets will be published in a data journal and all contributors will be invited for co-authorship.

 

Please find below the key information for data contribution to the project: 

 

Requirements

We are essentially interested in time series observations of karst spring discharges. Our standards are datasets with at least daily resolution and three hydrological years. In addition, other information of the spring catchment such as spring name, precipitation, elevation, longitude and latitude, recharge area, vegetation and catchment area can be included if available.

 

Exceptions

Due to the general difficulty to obtain data in tropical and sub-tropical regions, spring discharge observations with coarser resolution and less the three (3) hydrological years coming from this region will be accepted.

 

Time plan & deadline for data provision

We plan to prepare a data publication with all datasets that we have at the beginning of autumn. All data contributors will be invited for co-authorship. To meet our target for the publication, we have set a deadline for all friends willing to contribute data to support this project. Therefore, we would like to receive all (contributors’) data on or before 1 October 2018.

 

The data journal

We were in contact with Nature Scientific Data and Earth System Science Data. Both journals have reasonable impact factors and are open access. The publication costs will be covered by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which is funding the project (https://bit.ly/2mszWiU). While Nature Scientific data has a very strict review procedure, Earth System Science Data signalized that they support every contribution that brings advance to the scientific community. We will try Nature Scientific Data first.

 

Present state of work

Recently, we presented the state of the data base at the just IAH Eurokarst conference in Besancon, France (https://bit.ly/2N6SRuQ). We are currently drafting the paper and preparing the data validation.

 

If you want to join with your data, please get in contact with our data base expert Tunde Olarinoye (tunde.olarinoye@hydmod.uni-freiburg.de).

 

We hope to make this project a community effort and we look forward to receiving your contribution.

 

Thank so much for your participation,

Andreas Hartmann & Tunde Olarinoye

New Book: Cave and Karst Systems of Romania

 

This book, edited by Gheorghe Ponta and Dr. Bogdan Onac, focuses on Romania’s more than 12,000 caves, which developed in limestone (including thermal water caves), salt, gypsum, and occasionally in sandstone. It examines these caves and related topics in a format suitable for cavers, while also addressing a broad range of aspects useful for students and researchers. Since the Institute of Speleology was first established by Emil Racovita in 1920, a great deal of research has been conducted on all cave and karst types. As such, the book examines a variety of scientific fields, including karst geology, hydrogeology, biospeleology, paleoclimatology, mineralogy and archaeology.

[CML #17190] ПРОЕКТ УСА ЗОВ БЕЗДНЫ. Экспедиция в пещеры долины Ортобалаган (Абхазия).

В горы забрасываемся 4 августа, обратно 23 августа. В этом году у нас
практически семейная экспедиция. Старики, женщины и дети. Но планов как
обычно много.
Пещера Крубера. Возобновим исследование притока Лампрехтсофен. Попробуем
подняться как можно выше По внешнему виду притока складывается впечатление,
что это главное русло пещеры. Может удастся нащупать и более высоко
расположенный вход в пещерную систему. Пока с дистанции мы не сходим))
Разведка Нового меандра (приток не пройденный до конца на отметке – 240м) и
других участков пещеры в интервале 200-500 метров.
Пещера Берчильская. В прошлом году пещера нас остановила очередными
завалами. Эти головоломки попробуем разгадать в этом году. Будем также
работать и в обход завалов по молодому руслу с водотоком (- 450м).
Пещера Жемчужная. Пещера скорее всего соединяется с Берчильской. Поработаем
из спортивного интереса в дни отдыха от основных пещер.
Лагерь как обычно будет стоять возле пещеры Крубера. Заходите на огонек.
Кто-нибудь в лагере точно будет)).

[CML #17188] Re[2]: Вот так надо названия закреплять

На сегодня, к сожалению, строго говоря – никакая.

И это одна из причин создания проекта СпелеоЗакона.

Обращаю внимание - ПРОЕКТА.

Так-что скрытая в вашем вопросе <Просвятите несведущего, какое _государственное_ учреждение в Украине ведет кадастр пещер?> ирония не по адресу. Мы то, как раз, пытаемся этот пробел закрыть.

Хотя, строго формально этим должен и мог бы  уже сегодня заниматься Держгеокадастр.

Но явно этого в его задачах и функциях  нет.

Поэтому в СпелеоЗаконе и предусмотрена специальная норма, прямо возлагающая на Держгеокадастр эти функции.

Заодно эта организация, как государственная, объективная  и нейтральная по отношению к конкретным спелео-организациям,  официально фиксировала бы факт открытия, первооткрывателей и наименование пещер, ведет единый и официальный кадастр пещер и карстовых объектов Украины.

Что в дальнейшем позволяет избежать выяснения отношений – кто “первее”, чье название действительно, чей и кому принадлежит кадастр, и тому подобное… Кадастр принадлежит государству!

Вот, заодно, и путь решения спора УСА с Самохиным по кадастру пещер Украины и авторском праве на него.
 Вопросы задавать легко. Трудно находить их решение.

Поэтому предлагайте что-то свое и лучшее.

Просвятите несведущего, какое _государственное_ учреждение в Украине ведет кадастр пещер?
