The vertical karst development caused by the lowering of groundwater table shows itself in the multi- level cave systems which exist in both the plateau and the gorge areas. The problems of pollution, surface collapse and engineering works are related to the karst geomorphological environment. The benefits and defects of the dams sited in the gorges are discussed. (RB)

Jiudongtian (Nine caves Heaven) is located on the midreach of the Liuchonghe River in Guizhou, China. It is a stream sinking gorge area with many karst windows, natural bridges and caves. This paper looks at geomorphic structures, formational conditions and evolutional regularity of the gorges, and finds that it is a morphogenetic type of karst collapse gorges origined from knick-pointing and stream sinking. This process is one of constructural ways of karst gorge development, which will be of universal significance for study on evolutional model of karst gorges.
