UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers

is an online scientific journal that brings together research on developments in geospeleology and karst science pertinent to the origin and evolution of dissolution caves and conduit permeability (speleogenesis). Speleogenesis is a primary process that determines most essential features of hydrogeology of soluble rocks and guides evolution of karst in many ways, so that the evolution of karst in general and karst aquifers in particular are also within the scope of the journal.

The general aim of the journal is to foster speleogenesis and karst hydrogeology studies by highlighting the most essential recent advances in the field, disseminated in a vast array of literature, and facilitating access to them.

Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers is a specialized umbrella journal that, in addition to publishing original research articles, re-publishes carefully selected articles from partner karst and cave journals of a broader scope and from conference proceedings, and also indexes/highlights selected relevant articles from a wide range of the peer-reviewed geoscience journals by providing citations/abstracts linked to original full-text resources.

In this way, Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers serves as a premier one-stop scholarly source for the field of karst hydrogeology and the origin of solution porosity.
