    Nov 15,  · Karst caves have a special ‘museum’ property to preserve evidence of palaeoenvironments, from their location, morphology, hydrology, dimensions, and their contained biological, archaeological, clastic and chemical deposits. By studying these attributes, local speleogenesis and the evolution of the external landscape can become better understood, together . Dec 01,  · Karst Systems. A karst aquifer is typically characterized by sinkholes, caves, springs, conduits and underground drainage systems (Figure 1) formed by dissolution, internal drainage, and collapse quantitative assessment of flow and transport processes in these aquifers requires knowledge on recharge characteristics and location of major conduits by: Vulnerability of karst aquifers CHRIS LEIBUNDGUT Institute of Hydrology, University of Freiburg, Werderring 4, D Freiburg, Germany Abstract The susceptibility of karst systems, especially to point source pollution, is discussed.

Press) extends the textbook coverage of the topic he addressed in his first book in Culver is a leader in the karst community. He led the creation of the Karst Waters Institute in

    The evolution of flow in a fractured, porous karst aquifer is studied by means of the finite element method on a two-dimensional mesh of irregularly spaced nodal points. Flow within the karst aquifer is driven by surface recharge from the entire region, simulating a precipitation pattern, and is directed toward an entrenched river as a base level.

Dec 31,  · In Januarythe National Speleological Society published Speleogenesis: Evolution of Karst Aquifers. As mentioned in the preface, “this book presents a pioneer attempt by an international group of cave scientists to summarize modern knowledge about the cave origins in various settings, to examine the variety of approaches that have been adopted, and to outline the role of speleogenesis.

Speleogenesis is the origin and development of caves, the primary process that determines essential features of the hydrogeology of karst and guides its evolution.

It often deals with the development of caves through limestone, caused by the presence of water with carbon dioxide dissolved within it, producing carbonic acid which permits the dissociation of the calcium carbonate in the limestone.

Karst is a topography formed from the dissolution of soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, and is characterized by underground drainage systems with sinkholes and caves.

It has also been documented for more weathering-resistant rocks, such as quartzite, given the right conditions. Subterranean drainage may limit surface water, with few to no rivers or lakes.

It is a complex interplay of many factors and processes leading to the evolution of conduit networks in karst aquifers. The dynamics of speleogenesis and the resulting geometry of the conduit network strongly depend on local hydrology, lithology, structure, geochemical settings, and topography.

evolution of karst aquifers have been derived from field obser- vations and geochemical modeling [e.g., Palmer,]. Here enlargement of preexisting fractures has been shown to be highly sensitive to parameters such as surface recharge, flow distance within the karst aquifer, and initial fracture width.
