Advances in Hypogene Karst Studies includes multiple examples of hypogene processes that demonstrate the variability and breadth of hypogene cave and karst systems with respect to speleogenetic evolution. The first section focuses on general theories of hypogene speleogenesis. The second section provides detailed studies of hypogene processes at specific sites, either individual caves or limited areas. The third section investigates hypogene processes from a broader perspective and regional-scale processes. The final section discusses the relationship between natural resources and hypogene processes. This report also marks the beginning of the new NCKRI Symposium publication series, collections of peer-reviewed manuscripts focused on a common theme in cave and karst science.
