Karst covers approximately 12 percent of the world's land surface. It is not only rich in resources such as water, mineral deposits, fossil fuels and tourism attractions, but also suffers from a series of environmental problems. This book is the final report of the UNESCO/IUGS supported International Geological Correlation Program (IGCP) Project 299 "Geology, Climate, Hydrology and Karst Formation" (1990-1994).
