About This Project
Cave systems are an important part of the landscape, but are also hidden in the subsurface and therefore are not often the first consideration or concern. However, understanding the subsurface environment is key in protecting water resources and the subterranean ecosystem. This research focuses on the sedimentology, using sediment samples, sediment cores, and morphological characteristics to explore subsurface sediment transport in an active Kentucky cave system with a unique history.
