Abstract

Speleomorphology is cave-oriented geomorphology, the description and interpretation of the forms in the underground which are due to corrosion, erosion, and breakdown. The wealth of forms which are the result of sedimentation (see Chap. 13) are not included in it, in contrast to surface morphology which also embraces all forms due to sedimentation.
