  11. 11. • Springfield Missouri is located on a karst plateau, commonly known as the Springfield Plateau. • The Springfield plateau consists of a stack of Mississippian aged limestones of several hundred feet in thickness. • The Springfield area has experienced fairly rapid urbanization over the past 25 years, resulting in numerous problems associated with the interface between surface development and the underlying karst.
  12. 12. Buffalo National River Karst Fieldtrip
  13. 13. • America’s first National River, Buffalo National River was established to preserve a very scenic free-flowing stream in the southern Ozarks. • A significant section of the Buffalo River has come under threat from animal wastes as a result of the construction of a large Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) along a major tributary. • The CAFO is entirely on karst. • The field trip will discuss this issue as well as an overview of the karst development in this area.
  14. 14. Potential Workshops • A geologic float trip down the Buffalo River • Cave Gating Basics • Cave Databases • Introduction to Dye Tracing • Introduction to bat acoustic survey techniques.
