Some large dolines in the Dinaric karst
Abstract:

The main characteristics of the Dinaric karst are all kind of depressions, not only poljes and dolines, but also collapse dolines and similar forms. Some examples of such forms of large dimensions are located on the higher karst plateaus (Pokljuka, Jelovica, Snežnik in Slovenia), on the contact karst (Škocjanske Jame), on the levels above poljes (Crveno Jezero above the Imotsko Polje), and behind large karst springs (Unška Koliševka above the springs of Malni). Slovene terms for karst depressions are defined.
