Glossary of Karst and Cave Terms
Based on "A Lexicon of Cave and Karst Terminology with Special to Environmental Karst Hydrology" EPA/600/R-02/003, 2002, EPA: Washington, DC., Speleogenesis Glossary includes 2699 cave & karst terms
Areas in which karst landforms are developed upon halite or halite-rich rock, which are generally small and limited to arid regions, are referred to as salt karst. Except in desert regions, dissolution of rock salt occurs in buried, interstratal, situations, and the effects of such dissolution at the surface include subsidence pipes or wider subsidence areas, such as those represented by the meres and 'flashes' in the Cheshire Plain, England .
