Résumé The influence of rivers on speleogenesis is studied analyzing the cave

levels located in the underground drainage areas related to two fluvial basins. Cave

levels are analyzed through their vertical distribution profiles. The underground

limits of the fluvial basins are defined using a 3D geometric model of the karst

aquifer established according to the KARSYS approach. The aim of this work is to

analyze the influence of the rivers on cave evolution using cave morphology. The

study area corresponds to the Western and Central massifs of Picos de Europa

(Northern Spain), with 214 km of cave conduits up to 1.6 km vertical range. As a

result, we established two sequences of development of the cave levels related to

the differences of the incision rate of the Cares and Dobra Rivers, and the partial

capture of the Western Massif by the Cares River.
