Proceedings of the 12th International Congress of Speleology. 1998, Switzerland, Volume 6: 32-35 (map & fig.) (engl. Summ.).The geomorphological mapping of about 2 sqkm big area, exploration of three caves and their mapping, some measurement of main structural elements on the surface and in the caves, litology analyses, x-ray of sand and chemistry of the water from Swallow cave were done. The surface is well karstified, but shows surface fluvial forms, among which the deepest is the canyon of the Gan He river, which flows under the natural bridge. We visited seven caves but because of the lack of time and equipment we were able to survey only three of them. Cave system, and collapse depressions between them are strongly related to main faults and fissures directions. (auhtors; RB).
247p- Published by : Znanstvenoraziskovalni center Slovenske akademije znanosti in umetnosti, 247p., 1998Members of the Karst Research Institute ZRC SAZU, Postojna, and members of the Yunnan Institute of Geography and Institute of Geology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences gathered the results of karstological researches of south Chinese karst in two projects adopted by an agreement on scientific and technological cooperation between the Government of the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of China. The projects Karst Environmental Protection and Exploitation of Cave Resources and Study of Stone Forest Genesis, Function and Structures of the Underground Karst Aquifers in Lunan, Yunnan Province were going on from 1995 to 1997. They were made feasible by the Slovene and Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology and supported by Yunnan Provincial Science and Technology Commission, Administration of Stone Forest, and The Ninth Township Scenic Spots and Historical Sites Administrative Bureau, Yiliang County. The researches were carried out near Liupanshui, the western part of Guizhou, in karst between the mountains in Guizhou and Yunnan Plateau, in the area of Lunan stone forests and in cone-karst at Xichou, Yunnan.
