Karst from recent to reservoirs (Conference)
International conference on paleokarst & multi-permeability flow systems.
Pre-registration Deadline: May 8th
A Karst Waters Institute conference, Rapid City, South Dakota, June 7-11, 2008. Karstified rocks present special challenges for both petroleum production and groundwater hydrology. This meeting brings together specialists from these and other fields, to share knowledge about issues of multiple permeabilities. The program promotes interchange of ideas by including talks, posters, discussions, and a full day field trip (led by Art Palmer) to the unique karst of the Black Hills.
Topics to be covered include
- Karst origins and geometries
- Burial, collapse, and porosity redistribution in paleokarst
- Use of modern analogs to understand paleokarst reservoirs
- Architectures and connectivity of carbonate petroleum reservoirs
Presentations, posters, and are planned. Speakers from over 10 countries are already registered.
