Starting this weekend, an international gathering of international karst scientists and cavers is being held in Iran to study its salt domes.

The week-long event, held by the Iranian Cavers & Speleologists Association (ICSA) along with Qeshm Island authorities (where most salt domes are located), will include an expedition to the third longest salt cave in the world.

Special guests to the event include karst scientist Prof. Paul Williams, UIS secretary Dr. Fadi Nader, FELLAC president Efrain Mercado, and Iranian Karst scientist Dr. Raeesi.
