ABSTRACT
The paper presents the main geological features of the Vașcău Plateau and physicogeographical components with main focus on underground karst morphology which consists of a series of karst forms (sinkholes, Uvala, Sohodol-type valleys), that allow and direct rainwater underground, and a network of caves and potholes which are alignments of karst underground water drainage infiltrates from the surface.
The genesis, the evolution and the current status of karst systems in Vaşcău Plateau
represent the result of collaboration and interdependency of several factors: geological, morphological and topographical; hydrological and climatic factors, combined in the last period with the increasing influence of anthropological factors.

Keywords:Karstic area, geological features, Vașcău Plateau
