Abstract (in english)
   The Baiyun cave is a 380 m long karst cave in the Naigu Shilin, situated 70 km southeast of Kunming, Yunnan Province, China. The prevailing orientations of the cave passages are N110°-120°E and N0°-10°W and those of the fissures in the cave are N30°-40°W and N20°-30°W. The cave is developed in the thick-bedded Lower Permian Qixia Formation. The cave has an active water flow and is currently at the near water-table stage. There are large amounts of different infills of cave sediments. The cave shows different stages of paragenesis. The paleomagnetic analysis of cave sediments shows that their ages are younger than 780 ka B.P. (the brunhes Chron). The upper part of the sampled profile belongs to the reverse Blake event (112.3 - 117.9 ka B.P.). The formation of the Baiyun cave is directly connected with the development of the Naigu Shilin. The formation of karst underground and surface features depend on the regional tectonic deformation and the Cenozoic extension of the study area
