Lost Golfers: Hydrogeology and Engineering Problems of St. Louis Area Caves and Karst


Featured Speaker: Robert Criss, Ph.D., Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis

While he survived his fall down the "rabbit hole" in mid-March, a relaxing day on the fairway turned into a terrifying ordeal when the ground opened beneath the feet a golfer on a Waterloo, Illinois golf course. The Ozark ecoregion, which includes Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Illinois, and a corner of Kansas, is an area prone to soil collapses. Featuring local examples, hydrologist and Washington University professor, Robert Criss, talks about the uses and importance of caves and springs and the problems that commonly arise when karst lands are developed; and he shares information on nearby places where Missouri's remarkable karst features can be experienced safely.
