AFSRC has developed a great deal of knowledge and understanding of agricultural activity impacts on water quality in karst systems. Tracing of underground water with fluorescent dyes is a common tool for studying the hydrology of karst systems. Three of these sample jars show strong visual evidence of a connection between the point of injection of fluorescein dye and the water collection points.
Further information about karst and water quality research at AFSRC can be obtained from Dr. Douglas Boyer
