Proceedings of the
National Cave and Karst Management Symposia

Each Symposium publishes the papers presented during the event as a formal Proceedings. These have become important references for those involved in cave and karst management. From 1999 onwards, the Proceedings are available in various digital formats, and often also as hard copies.

The best resource for finding the Proceedings of the symposia is to access the Karst Information Portal, specifically this list.
