Abstract

The Cockpit Country is the type area for cockpit karst landforms. A detailed analysis of cockpit karst terrain is carried out using the latest GIS-based digital morphometric techniques in order to assess the nature of such terrain and provide further information for subsequent modelling, as well as other non-geomorphological applications, such as environmental management and conservation issues. The results indicate that cockpit karst may be categorized based on its vertical, horizontal and shape characteristics, as well as by looking at the semivariogram, slope characteristics, and landscape relief scale, which combine measures of vertical and horizontal scales
