Abstract

This paper examines the complex interactions between karst development, fluvial dissection, slope, and local environmental controls at a very detailed scale. The goal is to determine the circumstances under which karst or fluvial processes are predominant, and whether minor, highly localized (distance scale of meters to tens of meters) variations are associated with development of fluvial and/or karst features. The study area is the Kentucky River Gorge in the Bluegrass Region of central Kentucky, a well-known karst area which is also characterized by the deeply incised Kentucky River and its tributaries
