Proceedings of the 10th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst, held in San Antonio, Texas, September 24-28, 2005. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE; the Edwards Aquifer Authority; P. E. LaMoreaux and Associates, Inc. Cosponsored by the Southwest Research Institute. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 71 papers dealing with karst topography, which impacts water resources, waste disposal, foundation stability, and a multitude of other geotechnical and environmental issues. The goal of this conference was to share knowledge and experience between disciplines by emphasizing practical applications and case studies. Topics include: geology and origin of sinkholes and karst; modeling groundwater flow in karst; karst hydrology of the Edwards Aquifer; prevention and remediation of sinkholes and karstic settlement; foundation and geotechnical engineering in karst; karst hydrology and dye tracing; legal issues and government programs related to karst; geophysical applications to investigating karst; GIS, databases, and other computer applications for karst; and karst and sinkholes in evaporites.
