PlanetGeo: The Geology Podcast
Are You Karsty? Sinkholes and Karst
Show Notes

Today, Jesse and Chris discuss the distinction between sinkholes and karst topography.  There is a surprisingly large portion of the U.S. that has potential to be affected by karst.  It is also extremely important as a source of drinking water.  We also discuss the distinction between the technical definition of karst and what is called pseudokarst.  Below is a link to the article and diagram we allude to in the show.  We hope you enjoy.
