Join us in just over a week for our next online seminar: What is the water doing in the mountain? Research in caves on water storage and flow characteristics in Austria.
Eva Kaminsky is a researcher at the Natural History Museum and University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria.
On Monday 6th November at 19:30 GMT, Eva will give a talk on potential water storage and flow dynamics in the Hochschwab plateau, an important karst aquifier for Vienna. This talk will be on Zoom. For joining instructions follow the link: https://bcra.org.uk/seminars2023.html#join
We hope to see you there!

Detailed talk description:
In Austria, the Hochschwab plateau as a karst aquifer is one of the most important drinking water reservoirs for the capital Vienna. Karst aquifers are highly vulnerable to contamination due to the rapid flow of water through the conduits. Cave streams and karst springs can be used to characterize this flow behavior. This seminar will focus on the flow dynamics and potential storage of water in the vadose zone on Hochschwab, where many caves are located.
