The rugged terrain of Appalachia makes travel and transportation of commodities a difficult task. Railroads have historically offered a means of traveling within the region as well as transportation in and out of the region. Derek Hall, Physical Science Technician, uses one railroad as a means of access to find a spring draining higher elevation agricultural lands situated on karstic limestone.

More information about karst hydrology and water quality research at AFSRC is available from Dr. Douglas Boyer
