Project Karst Dive

Karst Dive 95 was a joint research and exploration project conducted by the WKPP and SAD in cooperation with the International Research and Application Center for Karst Water Resources (UKAM) of Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey, the University of Wyoming Department of Geology and Geophysics (UWG&G) of Wyoming, USA, the State Hydraulic Works (DSI) of Antalya, Turkey, and Kepez Electric Company also of Antalya. The goal was to explore, map, and document several underwater cave systems along the southern flank of the Taurus Mountains. Both UKAM and UWG&G were particularly interested in gaining a better understanding of the regional ground water flow system near Antalya. DSI and Kepez Electric hoped to learn how to increase the water supply to the Antalya region.
