Frontiers in Karst Colloquium Series – 1st seminar

 The Karst Waters Institute, in collaboration with the NSF-funded Carbonate Critical Zone RCN, is hosting the Frontiers in Karst Colloquium Series: a virtual seminar series on the theme of critical zone processes in carbonates. Presentations will be made by invited speakers from across the range of disciplines within CZ science, particularly highlighting contributions by early-career scientists.
