Study of Caves

The membership of the K.S.S. is made up of many persons interested in many different aspects of caves and caving. Caves are a frontier that has not been fully explored. Due to the nature of caves, unique individuals are attracted to their study. Persons from all walks of life have the opportunity to become amateur speleologists who can donate to an understudied field of science. Anyone can be a speleologist by participating in karst studies, cave surveys, photodocumentation, groundwater resource studies, resource identification surveys, biological surveys, mineral identification, and pollution studies. There are endless opportunities to contribute to the study of caves.

The study of Kansas caves continues with K.S.S. members having been involved in many of the above mentioned fields of interest.
