Geological Society of America: Session Proposals due 1 February!
Dear Karst Division Members
It's that time of year to submit proposals for Karst sessions for the 2018 GSA Meeting! The meeting will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana on 4-7 November and
session proposals can submitted here .
The deadline for submitting topical sessions is February 1st, 2018 and the abstract submission window will open on April 1st, 2018. Short course proposals are also due on 2/1.
Please remember that the Karst Division Management Board has adjusted the way that abstracts and sessions are now managed at the annual meeting. Special Topical
Sessions can still be proposed as before, but, moving forward, researchers will also have the option of submitting their abstracts to one of six predefined topical categories:
* Karst Hydrology and Geology
* Karst Processes and Speleology
* Karst Hazards and Monitoring
* Karst Sedimentary, Paleoclimate, and Historical Records
* Karst Ecosystems and Biogeochemistry
* Pseudo-karst Processes and Features
There will also be a Karst Division general discipline section that you can submit to if you are undecided and your abstract will be placed in the most appropriate session from those available. Please see the attached file for additional details.
In addition, the Karst Division Awards Deadline is also coming up on February 1st, 2018 . Please find more info on the awards here (or see attached document) and use these links to submit
your nominations or apply for
an award (or you can use the attached forms).
Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to serving you and the Division in the coming year!
Thank you and best wishes,
GSA Karst Division Management Board

New Cave Biology Book Seeking Authors
Happy New Year! I’m seeking contributing authors for an upcoming cave biology book. I’m the editor of the tentatively
titled “Cave Life - Drivers of Diversity and Diversification”. The book aims to examine terrestrial and aquatic systems globally and auger into structural and climatic variables driving how life assembles and evolves underground. All cavernicolous taxonomic
groups and ecological communities will be considered. This project is on contract and will be published sometime in 2019. If you would like to contribute a chapter, please contact me for details. Also, if you’d be so kind as to forward this email to anyone
you think may be interested, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Thanks very much in advance!
