National Cave And Karst Research Institute Special Paper 2: Role Of Hydrogen Sulfide In The Formation Of Cave And Karst Phenomena In The Guadalupe Mountains And Western Delaware Basin, New Mexico And Texas
Douglas W. Kirkland
The National Cave and Karst Research Institute is pleased to publish Dr. Doug Kirkland’s monograph on the role of hydrogen sulfide on speleogenesis in the Guadalupe Mountains and western Delaware Basin. Dr. Kirkland’s work builds on his many years of research in southeastern New Mexico and west Texas, and provides the most comprehensive overview of cave and karst phenomena in the greater Delaware Basin region in almost 20 years. His work incorporates and summarizes decades of research by previous workers, combined with new ideas he has developed on speleogenesis in the Guadalupe Mountains. We feel confident that this publication will serve as an important source book and milestone for future research in the Delaware Basin region for many years to come.

Jointly sponsored by the Hoffman Environmental Research Institute, the National Cave & Karst Research Institute, and the International Association of Hydrogeologists, the 2011 International Conference on Karst Hydrogeology and Ecosystems was held at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucy on 8-10 June 2011. Topics include karst geomorphology, engineering and modeling, isotope geochemistry, and cultural and educational aspects of karst environments.

This volume describes the results of a 2009 fieldwork season focusing on the cave minerals found in karst environments throughout San Salvador Island in the Bahamian archipelago. The caves visited represent a sampling of pit and flank margin caves. Each cave description includes a map.
