Sadly, the tragic news of the death of one of the world’s leading cave explorers has reached us. Brett Hemphill died

Karst Underwater Research

 while diving in Phantom Springs, Texas.

No details on the circumstances of the accident are available at this moment.

Phantom Springs is known as an incredibly challenging uncerwater cave system, the exploration of which requires a great deal of experience and skills. The area is a federally protected site that can be only explored in scientific purpose and only with a special permit. Any person trying to dive there on their own is risking multiple felonies.

Brett Hemphill

He was not only a diver with a colossal experience, but also a man dedicated to the science and exploration, and the president of Karst Underwater Research (KUR), a non-profit organization dedicated to the exploration, study and preservation of underwater karst environments that scientists are unable to reach.

Our focus is to identify opportunities for characterizing and collecting scientific information about karst systems for academic research, environmental protection and public knowledge. We fill the crucial niche of supporting scientists and other concerned. We also help scientists plan or refine their research plans based on our observations and data collections. We are a volunteer organization that relies on the efforts of skilled (and enthusiastic) volunteers with their own exploration equipment to execute our research efforts.
