Karst Interest Group Meeting: Registration is Open


How to Sign Up at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Website

for the U.S. Geological Survey Karst Interest Group Workshop

May 16-18, 2017

San Antonio, Texas, USA


Hosted by the Student Geological Society and student chapters of the Association of Petroleum Geologists and the Association of Engineering Geologists. 

This is a fundraiser for all three student chapters hosting the workshop and we suggest a donation of $25 for non-students and $15 for students. 


This is a charitable donation and for USGS or other Federal employees must be from personal funds, but is tax deductible (DO NOT USE YOUR GOVERNMENT CREDIT CARD).  The student chapters will purchase light refreshments for the technical sessions so we are hoping that the donations will offset those costs.  Feel free to donate more than the recommended amounts as the student organizations will find good use for the funds.  Additionally, people that make a donation will receive a hard copy of the proceedings.


Go to the Student Geological Society, UTSA KIG website.




NOTE- Two-step process to sign-up as the Donations button is separate from the Sign-Up for KIG button.  Please do both.


1- Donations button will take you to a donation page that you can choose the amount you would like to donate and the designation is automatically set to UTSA Geological Society with one-time gift selected.


2-Please Sign-Up for KIG for the workshop and indicate if you plan to participate on the Thursday field trip and are willing to drive (note need SUV or truck or car high off the ground for a couple of stops).  We will use the sign up information for making hard copies of the proceedings, field trip guide and to help organize carpools for the field trip.




Tuesday and Wednesday technical sessions are at different locations at UTSA (campus map available on this webpage)




Post-Karst Interest Group Activity


Dr. E. Scott Bair, Professor Emeritus at Ohio State University will be the Edwards Aquifer Authority’s 22nd Distinguished Lecture Speaker on Friday, May 19, 2017. The lecture will begin at 9 am and will end around 4:00 pm.


The lecture is titled Who Done It? Investigative Insights and Answers to Three Groundwater Mysteries. One of the subjects of Dr. Bair’s talk is a hazardous waste site in Woburn, Massachusetts which became nationally known because of a book and movie titled “A Civil Action.” Dr. Bair will be discussing his evaluation and findings of the Woburn site along with work he has performed over his career.  


Dr. Bair has taught courses in earth science, water resources, environmental geology, speleology, petroleum geology, hydrogeology, field methods, and groundwater flow modeling. 1n 1991, he received the Ohio State award for teaching excellence. He also served six years as department chair and has worked on projects for the Ohio DNR, Ohio EPA, NSF, USEPA, USDOE, USDA< USGS, and OSU.


Dr. Bair is a fellow of the Geological Society of America, recipient of its Birdsall-Dreiss Distinguished Lecturer, and former chair of its Hydrogeology Division.
