The geological and hydrological properties of karst terrains make them among the most fragile in the world .   Karst terrains are characterized by unique hydrology and geomorphology, both at the surface and in the subsurface; these are mainly related to dissolution of carbonate and/or evaporite rocks (Ford & Williams, ).The main distinctive features of these areas of relevance from the applied perspective include: (a) high permeability aquifers in which groundwater together with pollutants can. Part of Special Issue “Natural and anthropogenic hazards in karst areas” Abstract. Determination of the catchment area is the starting point in most hydrological analyses. It serves as a basis for many hydrological and water resources management calcu-lations. The Cited by:
