"Climate Change: the Karst Record", the IV International Symposium

Dates: From 26 May, 2006 till 29 May, 2006
Location: Baile-Herculaine, Romania

AIMS AND SCOPE

The ?Theoretical and Applied Karstology? (TAK) International Symposium has a long tradition in gathering scientists from all fields related to the science of karst and caves, ranging from theoretical ones (such as karst geology, caves mineralogy, physics and chemistry of karst processes, geomorphology) to applicative studies (hydrogeology, show-caves management, sustainable development in karst regions, etc).

In 2006, the XIXth edition of this symposium will be dedicated to the IVth International Conference ?Climate Change: the Karst Record? (KR IV). After the successful KR meetings in Bergen (1996), Krakow (2000) and Montpellier (2003), we would like to bring together again colleagues from all over the world sharing an interest in using cave deposits for paleoclimate reconstructions.

All presentations dealing with speleothem records (chronology, geochemistry, isotopic, paleomagnetic, petrographic, etc.) as well as other cave deposits (detrital, archaeologic, palaeontologic) relevant for climate history, evolution of karst regions and cave systems, as well as present-day cave conditions monitoring in relation with climate are welcomed. We also welcome theoretical approaches and models relevant for cave deposits interpretation (e.g. speleothem growth models, accumulation rates of cave sediments, etc.).

Topics

? present-day karst environments;
? paleoclimate as derived from karst records;
? karst evolution, karst modeling and paleokarst;
? cave fossil remains and paleoclimate;
? karst archaeology and climatic interpretations
