Abstract

Jennings and Sweeting's (1963) model of landscape evolution in the limestone Ranges of Western Australia has been proposed as a general scheme of semi-arid karstification. The aim of this study is to test this model by comparing it with observations made at The Lost City, a giant grikeland located in the Barkly karst of northern Australia. The results suggest that such landscapes may also be the result of structural control and that the role played by semi-arid climates may be less important than has previously been proposed
