Abstract

The Geodynamics-Earth-Tides-meeting-2016 was held in the Karst, the origin of geologic karst-formation. Surface-rivers are absent, and water flows in channels over distances of 30 km, forming subsurface caves. Geodetic observations allow detecting caves and sense hydrologic flow. The Karst water had been recognized before Romans as provision for man and livestock. Proto-historic remains near the mouth of the underground river suggest the water outpouring from the Karst was associated with deities to be worshiped. Here the geodetic and cultural aspects of the Karst are summarized, illustrating the field trip that had been offered to the participants.
