Author : Y.C. Chan & W.K. Pun
This report consists of two Technical Notes on karst morphology for foundation design. They are presented in two separate sections in this report. Their titles are as follows:
- Section 1: Karst Morphology of a Site in the Southern Part of Yuen Long Town
- Section 2: Karst Morphology of a Site in the Eastern Part of Yuen Long Town
The report describes the karst morphology interpreted for individual sites in the Yuen Long Scheduled Area. This facilitates the checking of foundation design submitted by the developer for the development of the site. The morphology interpretation was done through the MQD and marble mass classification system developed in GCO.
