  1. Dinaric Karst is one of the largest karst regions in Europe and in the World. It is the paramount karst of Europe and type site of many karst features. Dinaric Karst Area covers an extensive part of the Dinarides, a mountain chain in Southern Europe named after Dinara Mt., an impressive and outstanding rocky wall on the border between Dalmatian part of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
  2. The meter Big Room elevation level of Carlsbad Cavern, New Mexico USA, formed 4 Ma by hypogenic sulfuric acid speleogenesis (SAS). The age of the Big Room level of ± Ma was previously determined by dating alunite, a byproduct of speleogenesis, using the 40Ar/39Ar method. Duplication of these results is possible by radiometric dating of other byproducts interpreted to be.
  3. Speleogenesis is the process by which caves are formed and changed over time. Rates of cave formation, or speleogenesis, vary significantly and are influenced by a suite of geological, hydrological, meteorological, chemical, and biological processes.

  5. Reverse Faults of the Williamsburg Anticline, Greenbrier County, West Virginia, and Their Effect on Speleogenesis. By Sara H. Baldwin. The Williamsburg anticline is a large fold involving the Mississippian Greenbrier Group in western Greenbrier County, West Virginia. The Greenbrier Group is a series of limestones that are known for their karst.
  6. Dec 01,  · 1. Introduction. The spatial organization of caves has been the focus of many karst research studies for more than a century (Martel, , Renault, , Ford and Williams, , Palmer, , Klimchouk, , Audra and Palmer, ).These studies aimed at describing the geomorphological evolution and the position and shape of cave networks according to flow conditions, .
  7. Field reconnaissance examining the Permian Blaine Formation and the karst features within those rocks were conducted on two ranches in Barber County, Kansas. Karst features are developed dominantly in gypsum and include caves, sinkholes, losing streams, springs, and other surficial karst features. The Blaine Formation is known as a significant karst unit and major aquifer system in Oklahoma.
  8. Recognition of the cave development at depths below the near-surface environment, largely during mesogenesis by processes not directly related to the surface, signifies a major paradigm shift in karst science, previously overwhelmingly dominated by.
