KARSYS course: a web-tool for modeling karst aquifers in 3D


Update: the KARSYS modeling courses in Bowling Green, Kentucky and Reston, Virginia have been canceled due to concerns about coronavirus. The courses have been rescheduled to take place online, and have already filled to capacity. Thank you for your interest!

Join us for the KARSYS course, a web-tool for modeling karst aquifers in 3D. The course will be held on May 20th, 2020 in Reston, Virginia at the USGS headquarters, and on May 22nd, 2020 in Bowling Green, Kentucky at Western Kentucky University.

KARSYS is developed for geologists and hydrogeologists working in karst regions, in order to address questions related to aquifers and groundwater in a very pragmatic and concrete way. It enables 3D modelling of karst aquifers by synthesizing all standard geological and hydrological data and coupling a series of simple hydraulic principles.
The course is sponsored by the Karst Waters Institute and it is free of charge, thanks to the Cave Conservancy Foundation, U.S. Geological Survey and Western Kentucky University. There is a limited amount of space so hurry up and register today.
