Hypogene Karst Regions and Caves of the World

  • Presents the most representative coverage of hypogene karst of the world

  • Helps the reader with numerous regional and cave-specific case studies to acknowledge the diversity of hypogene speleogenetic processes and void-conduit patterns

  • Enables the generalization and categorization of hypogene karst and shows regularities in its distribution

  • Improves the ability to adequately model hypogene karstification and predict related porosity and permeability

  • Includes supplementary material: sn.pub/extras

Part of the book series: Cave and Karst Systems of the World (CAKASYWO)

About this book

This book illustrates the diversity of hypogene speleogenetic processes and void-conduit patterns depending on variations of the geological environments by presenting regional and cave-specific case studies. The cases include both well-known and newly recognized hypogene karst regions and caves of the world. They all focus on geological, hydrogeological, geodynamical and evolutionary contexts of hypogene speleogenesis.

The last decade has witnessed the boost in recognition of the possibility, global occurrence, and practical importance of hypogene karstification (speleogenesis), i.e. the development of solutional porosity and permeability by upwelling flow, independent of recharge from the overlying or immediately adjacent surface. Hypogene karst has been identified and documented in many regions where it was previously overlooked or misinterpreted. The book enriches the basis for generalization and categorization of hypogene karst and thus improves our ability to adequately model hypogene karstification and predict related porosity and permeability. It is a book which benefits every researcher, student, and practitioner dealing with karst.
