On Dictionary.com, it says:

cause-and-effect
adjective
noting a relationship between actions or events such that one or more are the result of the other or others.

What does 'such that' here mean? Does it mean 'to the extent that'? :)

You can replace it with "in which" here.

I said that because I saw the explanation below.
----
Oxford Dictionary of English:

such that
To the extent that:
the linking of sentences such that they constitute a narrative.
