Contents Notes
Introduction to Karst -- The Karst rocks -- Dissolution: chemical and kinetic behaviour of the Karst rocks -- Distribution and rate of Karst denudation -- Karst hydrogeology -- Analysis of Karst drainage systems -- Speleogenesis: the development of cave systems -- Cave interior deposits -- Karst landform development in humid regions -- The influence of climate, climatic change and other environmental factors on Karst development -- Karst water resources management -- Human impacts and environmental rehabilitation. "Karst Hydrogeology and Geomorphology is a fully revised and updated version of the extensively used and widely cited Karst Geomorphology and Hydrology published in 1989. This systems-orientated book is based on the authors' own teaching, research, consulting and international experience and includes wide international citations and illustrations. This edition features a stronger emphasis on karst hydrogeology, applied aspects of karst and practical problems of karst as well as computer modelling. New developments in the field such as ground penetrating radar cosmogenic exposure age dating and mass spectrometer techniques are evaluated."--Jacket.
