MANAGING POORLY QUANTIFIED RISKS BY MEANS OF NATIONAL STANDARDS WITH SPECIFIC REFERENCE TO DOLOMITIC GROUND (2011)
<p>The quantification of risk is fundamental to assessing its acceptability. When drafting codes of practice, the quantified risk is used in assessing the reliability of the structure and ensuring this complies with national norms. Problems arise in complex ...

This study shows that contrasts in geochemical data and water level response from two locations in a karst water shed provides a better understanding of the variety of flow paths in both space and time.
Herman E. K. , Tancredi J. H. et al.
This study provides detailed mineralogy of the most readily transported fraction of the clastic sediment load revealing material with composition dependent on source area, on mixing within the aquifer, and on transport mechanisms.
CO2 OUTGASSING IN A COMBINED FRACTURE AND CONDUIT KARST AQUIFER NEAR LITITZ SPRING, PENNSYLVANIA (2006)
This study points out that the mixing (both matrix and conduit water) can occur along different pathways (open versus closed) at different times and locations within the same basin.
