Abstract

What is Karst? Karst landscapes are shaped when surface or ground water becomes weakly acidic and reacts chemically with atmosphere or soil carbon dioxide. The dissolving actions of water on limestone bedrock result in a distinctive landscape defined by depressions such as sinkholes, caves, holes and solution pipes.
