Abstract

This study attempts to determine the nature of karst developed in uplifted and intruded carbonate strata on northern Vancouver Island, Canada. Hydrocheemical analyses are employed to determine the potential of the solution process imposed by geochemical constraints, and to investigate the extent to which hydrochemical character can be used to interpret tthe nature of groundwater flow and the spatial distribution of solution in the karst. Examination of landscapee form, particularly in cave passages, is employed to further understanding of the physical constraints on groundwater flow and cave devlopment, and to interpret the historical record preservd there.
