Hydrology of fractured rocks: October–November 1971


  • L. A. Heindl


The recent high level of interest in the hydrology of fractured, and particularly fractured carbonate, rocks was again demonstrated at the 1971 annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. A field conference, which dealt with the hydrogeology and land-use problems in fractured carbonate rocks in south-central Pennsylvania, was conducted on October 30–31, and a Symposium on the Hydrology of Fractured Rocks was held on November 1 in Washington, D.C.

Both events were initiated by the U.S./IHD Work Group on the Hydrology of Carbonate Terranes (V.T. Stringfield, Chairman) as complementary parts of a single, over-all presentation of current thinking in the hydrology of fractured rocks.
