ABSTRACT
Numerous karst features submerged by the Late Pleistocene-Holocene transgression are found along the Eastern Adriatic (Croatian) coast. Generally, most of karstification processes cease at the base level, that is, in case of coastal karst, the sea level. However, evidence of continued karstification (corrosion) and related processes (mechanical erosion and bioerosion), as well as remarkable change in hydrogeological settings of some hydrological systems, are quite common in Croatian submarine and coastal area.
