Cave Science vol. 19 No.1: 13-20 (10 fig., 1 tab., 8 phot.).

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)
