Aggtelek National Park is a limestone karst upland characterized by karren, dolines and river caves. For a period of 2 years, climatic and carbonate dissolution variables were monitored at 4 depths in a 7.5 m shaft through the soil fill in the floor of a typical large doline. Results are compared to other monitoring stations in shallow soils on side slopes. Runoff and groundwater flow are focused into the base of the doline soil fill, where moisture is maintained at 70-90 per cent field capacity and temperatures permit year-round production of soil CO[2]. The capacity to dissolve calcite is evaluated through the soil fill
