About Speleogenesis

Speleogenesis (karstic) is the origin and development of macroscopic dissolution voids and conduits in rocks by circulating fluids. Speleogenesis can be adequately understood only within the broader context of the hydrogeological settings and evolution of karst. In its turn, speleogenesis is a primary process that determines essential features of the hydrogeology of karst, and guides its evolution in many ways.
