Application of High-resolution digital topographic data to the detection of incipient sinkhole formation in central Florida
Entry ID: C_FL_Sinkhole

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The topography of central Florida is an excellent example of a continental
landscape dominated by a single geomorphic process: karst, an array of
landforms formed in response to chemical weathering and dissolution of
carbonate rock. Because the rocks of the Florida platform are almost entirely
undeformed and regional topographic gradients are low, karst landforms form the
primary topographic ... View entire text
