European Geosciences Union General Assembly

Dates: From 15 Apr, 2007 till 20 Apr, 2007
Location: Vienna
Dear colleagues,

I am glad to announce that  for the first time there will be a session on karst geomorphology "GM7 Surface and Subsurface Karst Geomorphology " at the EGU General Assembly 2007 to be held in Vienna (15-20 April 2007).
This session is co-sponsored by the Commission of Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis of the Union International de Splologie and the Karst Commission of the International Geological Union.
Since several years there has been (and there still is) a karst session in the Natural Hazards program (NH 8.03) "Natural and Antropogenic Hazards in karst areas" that has had an enormous success last year with over 40 papers presented and a total of three oral slots (18 oral presentations).
This year karst scientists are given the opportunity to present papers to both sessions.
Both sessions, related to more or less applied geomorphological issues, are correlated and session convenors will work together to make both karst sessions successful.

The deadline for the abstracts is January 15th. The abstracts must be sent via the EGU web site.
 
Info on the meeting:
 
 
For who's interested in the session on "Natural and Anthropogenic hazards in karst areas":
Please contact the convenor Mario Parise for more information: m.parise@ba.irpi.cnr.it
 
 
In case you know of colleagues who might not be aware of this event and the relative karst sessions please feel free to "spread the voice".
 
We are looking  forward to meet you in Vienna,

The  conveners of the Surface and Subsurface Karst Geomorphology Session,
