BCRA Caves and Karst online seminars

The next of our monthly online seminars takes place on Monday 13 September 2021 at 19.30 BST. This series of talks takes place on the second Monday of each month, in support of the International Year of Caves and Karst (IYCK).

The September talk is "Cave Forensics: Reconstructing Cave Visitation and Past Climate", with Lisa Baldini, Lecturer in Environmental Science, Teesside University. For a summary, and for information on how to log in via Zoom, please go to http://bcra.org.uk/seminars2021.html


Cave & Karst Science vol 48(2)

The next issue of C&KS (the August issue) is now at the printers and should be posted to subscribers within 14 days. It will be online within the next few days. Apologies for the slight delay with this issue.

IMPORTANT ... If you are subscriber in the EU who receives a copy on paper (including our free journal-exchange copies) please note that, because of a change in EU law relating to imports, you might be asked to pay import duty and a handling charge on this mailing. It is our understanding that because we are mailing these issues as "Delivery Duty Paid" there should not be a problem, but we are hearing reports of glitches in the system. Our advice is that if you are asked to pay a handling charge you should refuse to accept the mailing. If that happens, please contact us, and we will take it up with the shipping agent.

CREG Journal 115

CREG Journal 115 (the September issue) is now at the printers and should be online within the next few days.

IMPORTANT ... If you are subscriber in the EU who receives a copy on paper please note that, because of a change in EU law relating to imports, you might be asked to pay import duty and a handling charge on this mailing. The situation here is slightly different to that for C&KS because we are not able to mail the CREG journal as "Delivery Duty Paid". Please read the notice at http://bcra.org.uk/cregf
