Document title

Demonstration of past sediment cover on present-day karst landscapes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Boundaries of former covered and uncovered karsts can be determined through the analysis of the features developed along rock boundaries since the latter survive the denudation of the sediment cover. Not only the conditions of coverage in a karst area i.e. the previous existence of uncovered areas but also their boundaries can be determined through the detection of rock boundaries. Since the altitudes of rock boundaries framing uncovered karsts were nearly identical, the different elevations of the neighbouring uncovered areas and the extent and nature of the uplift of a single uncovered karst area could be deduced from the present altitude differences of the features developed along rock boundaries. - (L'A.)
