6.2 Karst Landforms: Scope and Processes in the Early Twenty-First Century
Download Full Text
The study of karst landscapes over the past half-century has greatly expanded both the scope of the landform descriptions and the processes that form them. Near-surface karst (telogenetic and eogenetic) is formed by circulating meteoric waters within local watersheds. Near-surface karst is modified by other geomorphic processes, including fluvial action and glaciation. In addition, there are several varieties of deep-seated (hypogenetic) karst that have taken on increased importance.
Alpine Karst, Endokarst, Eogenetic Karst, Exokarst, Fluviokarst, Glacio-Karst, Hypogenetic Karst, Phytokarst, Telogenetic Karst
