Abstract

M. Sweeting's tropical karst studies can be split into 3 phases, the first being a phase of reconnaissance and exploration in the 1950s and 1960s; the second a phase of increased measurement beginning in the 1960s and lasting until the early 1980s, and finally, M. Sweeting's Chinese phase in the years of her retirement in the late 1980s and early 1990s, involving frequent trips to China as well as reflection and comparison. Her work during these phases provides a pivotal link between many different styles of approach to tropical karst geomorphology, which represents a unique contribution to karst studies
