|The Karst Waters Institute is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit institution whose mission is to improve the fundamental understanding of karst water systems through sound scientific research and the education of professionals and the public. |
Institute activities include the initiation, coordination, and conduct of research, the sponsorship of conferences and workshops, and occasional publication of scientific works. KWI supports these activities by acting as a coordinating agency for funding and personnel, but does not supply direct funding or grants to individual researchers. The KWI occasionally issues publications. These may report the results of research that the KWI has been involved in, or may be abstracts, proceedings, and field trip guides from Institute sponsored symposia.
