A suitable place to merge the powers of observation and current research
SNO KARST is a suitable place to merge the powers of observation and current research on karst aquifers to compare, organize, and standardize approaches (tools, methods, concepts). Here team members work to develop tools to characterize and model water resource evolution (qualitative, quantitative) in response to forcing of short, medium, and long wavelength, within different physiographic, geologic, and climatic contexts. We hope to move toward a “synthetic” approach at the scale of large karst typologies, from characterizing their structure and operation to hydrodynamic and hydrogeochemical modeling of transfers. To accomplish this, it is necessary to perpetuate the temporal surveillance of various natural laboratories.
