Karstifiable Rocks

  • Alfred Bögli
Chapter

Abstract

The formation of karst landscapes and karst hydrography is related to the occurrence of specific rocks. These must be soluble and may leave but little residue, so that the interstices widened by the processes of solution remain open, which is a prerequisite for the characteristic underground drainage.
