This practical training guidebook makes an important contribution to karst hydrogeology. It presents supporting material for academic courses worldwide that include this and similar topics. It is an excellent sourcebook for students and other attendees of the International Karst School: Characterization and Engineering of Karst Aquifers, which opened in Trebinje, Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2014 and which will be organized every year in early summer.

As opposed to more theoretical works, this is a catalog of possible engineering interventions in karst and their implications. Although the majority of readers will be professionals with geology/hydrogeology backgrounds, the language is not purely technical making it accessible to a wider audience. This means that the methodology, case studies and experiences presented will also benefit water managers working in karst environments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book contains numerous illustrations ... and tables which help readers to understand hydrogeological and engineering geological terminology in karst areas. ... The present tome is addressed to professionals with a geological and hydrogeological background, students of earth sciences and water managers in karst environments. The text is written in such a way that it is easily understood; readers will rapidly become familiar with hydrogeological terms and engineering methods in karst environments."
