Abstract

ABSTRACT. The development and geometry of deep endokarst systems in the Valle del Nosê (Como Lake district, Northern Italy) is related to s setting in a synclinal structure. Endokarst development is controlled by bedding and jointing: most galleries and karst voids formed at the intersection of bedding planes with one of the two main discon­tinuity sets. Measurements inside caves and at the surface allowed comparing distribution and geometry of caves with the geometry of the main fold structure. The geometrical characteristics and the 3-dimensional arrangement of the studied endokarst system provide a powerful tool to determine possible underground drainage directions.
