IGCP299 -- Geology, Climate, Hydrology and Karst Formation (1990-1994)
The International Correlation on Geology, Climate, Hydrology and Karst Formation has been carried out under a common technical requirement drafted and agreed by all the collaborators. It included the relationship between different kinds of karst features ( surface and subsurface ones, macro forms and micro forms, solutional forms and depositional forms ) and basic factors controlling the development of karst features ( such as geological, climatic, biologic, and hydrological conditions ).
The project has also included the correlation on environmental changes in major karst regions arround the world. Different kinds of geological records, such as those reflected in karst features, surface and cave sediment, isotopic data, has been collected, identified, and interpreted for different time scale with care.Final report: Global Karst Correlation.
