* 2023 BCRA Online Seminar via Zoom - MONDAY 13 FEBRUARY

In 2023, BCRA celebrates its 50th anniversary. To mark this occasion we are hosting a series of online seminars that will promote the scientific importance of caves and karst. The second of these seminars will be in a week's time on Monday 13 February 2023 at 19:30 GMT.

Dan Matthews, a PhD student at the University of Leeds will speak in a talk entitled "It's karst Jim, but not as we know it: hydrologic tracing to public-water supply abstractions in the English Chalk".

For further information, including how to log on to the event, see

If, as part of this series of seminars, you would like to offer a talk on a science topic that you think would be of interest to a broad caver audience then please contact John Gunn with a title and a few words about your suggested content.
