Abstract. Even though a large number of I/O­efficient graph algo­
rithms have been developed, a number of fundamental problems still
remain open. For example, no space­ and I/O­efficient algorithms are
known for depth­first search or breadth­first search in sparse graphs. In
this paper we present two new results on I/O­efficient depth­first search
in an important class of sparse graphs, namely undirected embedded pla­
nar graphs. We develop a new efficient depth­first search algorithm and
show how planar depth­first search in general can be reduced to planar
breadth­first search. As part of the first result we develop the first I/O­
efficient algorithm for finding a simple cycle separator of a biconnected
planar graph. Together with other recent reducibility results, the sec­
ond result provides further evidence that external memory breadth­first
