That transmissivity is the rate at which water of the prevailing kinematic viscosity is transmitted through a unit width of an aquifer under a unit hydraulic gradient [6]. though spoken of as a property of the aquifer, it embodies the saturated thickness and the properties of the contained liquid as well. it is equal to an integration of the hydraulic conductivities across the saturated part of the aquifer perpendicular to the flow paths [22].?

Welcome to Karstbase!

The KarstBase is a fully searchable online bibliography database of current literature on karstology and geospeleology. It currently contains over 13 thousands references and dynamically growths. KarstBase fully covers 16 major karst and cave science journals (World Karst/Cave Science Journals) and indexes large number of publications in the field from prime geoscience journals, books and conference proceedings. Whenever possible, links are provided to full-text PDFs of published articles (directly accessible if a source publication is an open access).

Registered members of the Speleogenesis website can directly submit new references to KarstBase via the submission form, and thus contribute to this resource.
