Frontiers in Karst Colloquium Series

The Frontiers in Karst Colloquium series is a collaboration between KWI and the NSF-funded Carbonate Critical Zone RCN to produce a series of online seminars focused on critical zone processes in carbonates. Presentations are made by invited speakers from across the range of disciplines within critical zone science, particularly highlighting contributions by early-career scientists. Presentations are approximately 30 minutes long with 10-15 minutes for questions and discussion.
