UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

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.

About Speleogenesis.info project

Speleogenesis.info is a non-profit web platform aimed to promote karst and cave studies and integrate the international scholarly community through information exchange, communication and collaboration.  Speleogenesis.info develops and maintains various networking and information resources (Speleogenesis Network), serving as a hub of collaborative activities of individual researchers and research institutions involved in karst and geospeleology studies.

The Speleogenesis website is revitalized
