A hole formed in soluble rock by the action of water, serving to conduct surface water to an underground passage
A depressed area in which waste or drainage collects
A depression in the landscape where limestone has been dissolved
A depression in which drainage collects and communicates with a cavern or passage Normally located in regions underlain by limestone
- A steep sided depression found commonly in limestone areas, usually the result of solution weathering
Over long periods of time groundwater may dissolve large areas of limestone rock, slowly enlarging underground caverns and eroding support for the land above   There may be no evidence of what is taking place until the ground collapses abruptly into a void below, producing a sinkhole
In welding, a dimple on the surface of stock caused by shrinking of the weld during cooling
surface depression formed by solution of limestone or collapse over a subterranean void such as an old mine
A circular depression formed in an area either by dissolving of the surface limestone or by collapse of underlying cavities
a depression on the earth's surface, produced by the collapse of a cavern roof
a natural depression in a land surface indicating a subterranean passage, generally occurring in limestone regions and formed by solution or by collapse of a cavern roof
A depression in a karst area, commonly with a circular pattern Its drainage is subterranean, its size is measured in meters or tens of meters, and it is commonly funnel-shaped From Glossary of Geology, 4th Edition, 1997, American Geological Institute
- A surface depression created by underground collapse
A basin- or funnel-shaped hollow in limestone, ranging in diameter from a few meters up to a kilometer and in depth from a few to several hundred meters
A depression in the landscape formed by the collapse of the land surface below which limestone has been dissolved Karst topography has many sinkholes
a depression in the ground communicating with a subterranean passage (especially in limestone) and formed by solution or by collapse of a cavern roof
A closed depression formed either by solution of the surficial bedrock (e g , limestone, gypsum, or salt) or by collapse of underlying caves Complexes of sinkholes in carbonate-rock terrain are the main components of karst topography
{i} depression, low-lying area in which water collects
Strictly, a hole or doline (qv) which acts as a streamsink Unfortunately, the word has become debased by common misuse as a synonym for a doline (qv), especially a collapse doline
also called sink. A depressed area in which waste or drainage collects
A circular depression in a karst area Its drainage is subterranean, its size measured in meters or tens of meters, and it is commonly funnel-shaped
An opening in the earth created by either natural or man-made subterranean activities For example, if a tunnel fails, it may create a sinkhole
Crater formed when the roof of a cavern collapses; usually found in areas of limestone rock
A steep-sided depression formed when removal of subsurface embankment or foundation material causes overlying material to collapse into the resulting void Seepage through the limestone foundation at Horsetooth Reservoir has caused sinkholes at the south end of the reservoir near the Swim Beach and also one sinkhole near the upstream face of Horsetooth Dam All sinkholes have been filled and capped
or sink or doline Depression formed as underlying limestone bedrock is dissolved by groundwater. Sinkholes vary greatly in area and depth and may be very large. The two main varieties are those caused by the collapse of a cavern roof, and those caused by the gradual dissolving of rock under a soil mantle. Collapsed sinkholes generally have steep rock sides and may receive streams that then flow underground. Soil-mantled sinkholes are generally shallower; they may become clogged with clay and hold a small lake
a depression in the Earth's surface caused by dissolving of underlying limestone, salt, or gypsum Drainage is provided through underground channels that may be enlarged by the collapse of a cavern roof
A surface depression produced when underlying bedrock (usually limestone) or salt dissolves or when caves collapse
A pit like hole in found in areas of karst These features are caused by the weathering of limestone or dolomite by subsurface drainage Also called a sink or doline
Sinkholes occur when earth on the surface collapses into a subterranean cavity that has formed in a limestone bed
A depression in the land surface formed either by collapse of the roof of an underground cavern or channel or by solution of near-surface limestones or similar rocks
A circular, often funnel-shaped depression in the ground that forms when soluble rocks dissolve
plural of sinkhole
