The concept de "delta karstique", une epxression morphologique des variations climatiques du niveau de base hydrologique dans les régions côtières (Normandie, France).
Coastal output karst systems offer a very well developed network of galleries with a complex organization resulting of the hydrological base level variations. In the Eastern english Channel, the lower Seine river valley has been successively and cyclically form the middle Pleistocene, bay bottom, estuary and river. consequently, numerous base level variations were recorded by functionnal karst systems, as the Caumont karst network : its exacerbeted gallery development results directly from the underground drainage adaptation to the altitudinal and lateral constraints of these variations.
