Abstract

The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that, at least in the case of tumuli developed on macrocrystalline gypsum, the processes of dissolution and reprecipitation within the same gypsiferous layer can produce the observed folding. Furthermore, the AA. wish to deduce the role played by structural controls and the influence of the texture of the gypsum in their formation. Tumuli must be considered as superficial karstic mesoforms, characteristic of certain gypsiferous karstic landscapes in arid and semiarid climates
