Denuded caves - an inherited element in the karst morphology, the case from Kras
Andrej Mihevc, Tadej Slabe , Stanka Šebela - (27/1,1998)
Relief features due to denudation lowering of the surface or due to changes of karst caves in the epikarstic zone are described. Three genetical types of superficial relief features controlled by denudation of rocks above the caves are treated. These are roofless caves, a series of dolines above larger cave passages and individual dolines due to denudation of vadose and phreatic shafts. These features must be genetically distinguished from features due to collapse processes above caves.
