Karst is a type of topography that features landforms produced by the dissolution of soluble rocks like limestone, gypsum, and dolomite.

Karst landscapes have extensive underground cave systems, subterranean rivers, sinkholes, etc. Karst landforms vary in size and type.

They maybe small-scale features like runnels, solution flutes, etc or large Author: Oishimaya Sen Nag. Karst comprises some of the most unique landscapes in the world, but it is also characterised by distinctive landforms.

These characteristic landforms can be found both on the surface and below ground. Surface landforms commonly include enclosed depressions, sinkholes, sinking streams and springs. The most common types of karst landforms are.

Unique landforms and patterns of drainage called karst or karst topography primarily form in temperate to tropical regions, though they are found in arid and polar regions too.

The common feature shared by all karst landscapes is that they are underlain by chemical sedimentary rocks particularly susceptible to dissolution, carbonates and/or evaporites.

Polje (karst polje, karst field), a large flat specifically karstic plain. The name "polje" derives from South Slavic languages. Doline, also sink or sinkhole, is a closed depression draining underground in karst areas. The name "doline" comes from dolina, meaning "valley", and derives from South Slavic languages.

Karst Topography. The formation of caves and other associated features in limestone bedrock is called karst topography. Limestone, a sedimentary rock made mostly of the mineral calcite and small amounts of clay, is relatively easy to dissolve with dilute acids, including the weak dilute acid formed when carbon dioxide dissolves in water.!File Size: 8MB.

Limestone and Chalk: Limestone and chalk are sedimentary rocks of organic origin derived from the accumulation of corals and shells in the sea. In its pure state, limestone is made up of calcite or calcium carbonate, but where magne­sium is also present it is termed dolomite.

Chalk is [ ]. Karst is a general term used to describe regions where landforms most often result, either directly or indirectly, from dissolution of limestone bedrock. Sinkholes and caves are characteristic karst features.
