Sedimentological and morphological study of selected cave systems in Eastern New South Wales, Australia

Frank, Ruben Milton

Description

This thesis has two main aspects . Primarily, it is a geomorphological study of a number of caves in five areas of central eastern New South Wales. Secondarily, it is methodological ; it demonstrates the value of using both sedimentary and bedrock-morphological evidence to interpret cave development , and it tests a specific method in which clay-mineral types in cave sediments are used to interpret surface palaeoenvironment .
