About this title


The book presents an overview of the main hazards affecting karst, including collapse and subsidence phenomena, hydrological hazards and human-induced geohazards. Consideration is also given to the problems of geohazard management in karst. The geological and hydrological properties of karst terrains make them among the most fragile in the world and pose serious problems for land managers. Sustainable development in these terrains requires efforts to limit geohazards of anthropogenic origin and to recognize and mitigate against those of natural origin. Aimed at providing the reader with worldwide case studies, the contributions cover a range of geological and morphological settings. Geographically, the fourteen papers discuss very different karst areas, from North America, the Caribbean and Asia to several karst areas in Europe, including the British Isles, Spain, France and Italy.

This publication is for specialists, but it presents well written and interesting papers that the enthusiast can follow. Some of the papers require commitment and studying in detail to get the best from them, but all of the papers can be appreciated at a more basic level as well. --Review By: Mark Appleby, BSc Open Featured in OUGS Vol 31 1-2- 2010
