Virtual Workshop

Natural and engineering activities affect underground water systems, the most drastic changes from which may be observed in karsts. It is crucial to image the underground in order to evaluate many global challenges such as water pollution, flow path distribution, sinkhole development, soil moisture, water cycle system, etc. Geophysical methods offer a unique pathway to image the subsurface from the property differences. The goal of this workshop is to bring together new initiatives, methodologies, imaging approaches, and case studies toward understanding underground water and karst systems that lie within the subsurface critical zone. We encourage contributions from traditional and novel methodologies with applications improving the understanding and monitoring of underground water and karst systems.
