Abstract

As the analysis of the morphology and the weathering products shows, the development of the relief of the karst basin and its surrounding area can only be understood as a sequence of climatic relief generations. Etch-plains and cone karst with strongly weathered soils represent the Neogene relief generation. Alluvial fans in the polje and valleys, in the area of the Cretaceous rocks, with fresh and moderate weathered soils demonstrate the relief generation of the Quaternary. These landforms are the consequence of drier climatic conditions with a lower intensity of weathering
