Geoscientists to meet in Fayetteville to discuss triggered seismicity, karst & energy resources

Boulder, Colorado, USA - Geoscientists from the south-central U.S. and beyond will convene in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, on 17-18 March to discuss new science, expand on existing science, and explore the unique geologic features of the region. Topics include induced or triggered seismicity and hydraulic fracturing, investigation of urban karst systems and karst hydrology, geothermal energy as a renewable resource, development of new energy resources (Mississippian Lime play) in Oklahoma and Kansas, and groundwater quality in gas production areas.

Four field trips are planned prior to and after the meeting. On Sat.-Sun., 15-16 March, conveners will run the popular HydroDays field trip through the southern Ozarks to view spectacular occurrences of mantled karst terrain, epikarst exposed by fluvial erosion, and the many caverns and springs of the region. Karst researchers, educators, students, and karst lovers of all persuasions are invited.
