In celebration of the UIS International Year of Caves and Karst (http://iyck2021.org/), the Crawford Hydrology Laboratory (https://dyetracing.com/) is opening our research grant program, historically just for students, to cave conservancies and National Speleological Society grottos. Though small in the grand scheme, we hope this grant can support people on the ground - underground. . Here is the link for details and the official RFP, https://dyetracing.com/research-grant-program. Please feel free to share this information with others.

are there preserves with long-term instrumentation and data that can be shared?
Yuval Burstyn

Is there some sort of master-list, or database, for caves and karst formations that are monitored (hydro-geo-chemically), as Todd suggested - surface and subsurface parameters? (such as the very limited https://cave-monitoring.org/
Todd Rasmussen

@Dorothy and @Yuval, it would be great to facilitate this kind of database!

The resource management group of any of the National Parks could provide that information.

Also, there's the PAGES working group SISAL (originally for paleo-data) that's looking into creating this sort of DB http://pastglobalchanges.org/science/wg/sisal/introI'm involved with them (also Jessica Oster who gave a talk here a few weeks back) - feel free to contact.

@Mark - this looks cool! https://www.nps.gov/im/cupn/index.htm

Also include the various cave surveys that are storehouses of state cave locations and surveys. Some of them require data requests but they are all amenable to helping support (data-wise) cave research.
