Evolution of Karst Aquifers

This book is a pioneer attempt by an international group of cave scientists to: summarize modem knowledge about the origin of caves in various settings; examine the variety of approaches that have been adopted; outline the role of speleogenesis in the evolution of karst aquifers. Along with some well-established theories and approaches, the book contains new concepts and ideas emerging in recent years.

Subjects Covered Include:
Evolutionary typology of karst
Geologic and hydrogeologic controls
Dissolution physics and chemistry
Finite element and laboratory modeling
Overviews on speleogenesis in coastal/ oceanic, confined, and unconfined settings deep-seated (hypogene) karstification
Over 30 representative case studies
East European-Russian research
Solutional, erosional, and breakdown morphology of caves
Formation of hydrocarbon and mineral deposits. Role of speleogenesis in the formation of karst aquifers
Water problems and land use in karstic terraines
