Special session in honor of Dr. James F.Quinlan

Author Alexander Klimchouk. Posted on 09 Jun, 2011

We wanted to make you aware of the special session in honor of Dr. James F.Quinlan at the Annual GSA meeting scheduled for October 8-13.

We hope that you will consider submitting an abstract and making a presentation for the session to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The intent of this special session is to honor the memory of Jim for his long and significant contributions to the field of karst hydrology. Jim was the Park Geologist at Mammoth Cave National Park for many years before becoming a full time consultant. Jim helped work out many procedures for both qualitative and quantitative tracer testing in the Mammoth Cave area before his untimely passing in 1995. Jim was a graduate of VPI (BS) and UT-Austin (Ph.D). He was widely traveled and spent time in Europe, Australia, Africa, and North America. He wrote extensively about karst processes and is still widely referenced in the karst literature.

We are encouraging submissions from people that knew Jim, but also from those who are carrying on the spirit of his work to understand and solve applied karst problems. We expect to see and are encouraging a range of abstracts from students to seasoned professionals. Please feel free to distribute this announcement to others.

Abstract submissions are open now for GSA (click here) look for the session number T80.

Deadline for submission is July 26, 2011.

T80. Environmental Problems in Karst Terranes/Terrains and Their Solutions: In Honor of James F. Quinlan
GSA Hydrogeology Division; GSA Environmental and Engineering Geology Division; GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; Edwards Aquifer Authority; National Cave and Karst Research Institute; Karst Waters Institute; Minnesota Ground Water Association

This session on applied karst hydrology and geology is held in honor of the late Dr. James Quinlan, one of the founders of modern karst research in the United States.

Thank you,
E. Calvin Alexander, Jr.
