Mammoth Cave Field Trip
Hydrogeology of the Mammoth Cave Region: Why Is the World’s Largest Known Cave Here?
Friday, December 8, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Mammoth Cave system is the most extensive known cave on Earth. First explored more than 4,000 years ago, the cave has attracted all manner of spelunkers and scientists from around the world. Many fundamental ideas about karst landscapes and how they can be studied have been developed here by legends such as Art Palmer, Nick Crawford, Jim Quinlan, Will White, and others.
This field trip will explore the surface and subsurface landscapes of the region with an emphasis on (1) the hydrogeology of the Pennyroyal and Mammoth Cave plateaus and (2) how various elements of climate, geology, and landscape evolution have conspired in a “perfect storm” of karst development.
The field trip price is $125 per person on/before November 3 and $175 thereafter.
