"Yangshuo is the most popular international rock climbing destination within China," he wrote in the book. "The local karst topography offers a lifetime of crags unique in rock formations. To understand the seasonal and spatial variation in nitrogen deposition and to identify the major sources of nitrate in wet deposition in a karst agricultural area (Houzhai Catchment) in southwestern China, two sites with different land use were selected to assess wet and dry deposition for one : Jie Zeng, Fu-Jun Yue, Fu-Jun Yue, Fu-Jun Yue, Si-Liang Li, Si-Liang Li, Zhong-Jun Wang, Cai-Qing Qin.

This book makes deep researches on Chinese ten typical provincial karst stone forest landscapes of their origin. First, for example, the Chinese karst is in its initial stages much more fluvial in origin than that of the Dinaric karst. Problems which worried European karst geomorphologists, such as dry val­ leys and the debates about karst base levels and the water table have not worried the Chinese so much.

Karst in China Karst' is the technical name describing the geological processes and phenomena of the dissolution of soluble rocks (chiefly the carbonate, sulphate and halide rocks) by naturalwaters.

The main results of karst biogeochemistry in China can be summarized as follows: (i) biogenic activity plays an important role in regulating dissolution and precipitation of carbonate rocks; (ii.

Karst is a unique landform that occurs in areas where lime stones and other soft rocks intermingles with harder stone. Over time, the soft rock dissolves leaving the remaining harder stone in unusual formations. Famed for its rich and diversified landforms, South China Karst signifies the finest examples of that topography in China and the world.

Karst topography and associated landforms are defined as a unique landscape associated with areas where carbonate rocks (limestone) abound and are dissolved by subterranean drainage. South China Karst represents the erosional remnants of enormous deposits of limestone that originated over million years by: 4.

Karst hills, that is, jagged topography created by dissolution of limestone and other soluble rocks, are distributed extensively in tropical forest regions, including southern parts of China.

Karst in China: its geomorphology and environment. [Marjorie Mary Sweeting] -- This book is the first study of the karst areas of China by a Western geomorphologist. Almost all the sources for the book are from Chinese work, never published in the West.

Emphasis in China has been on the hills or positive forms of karst, whereas in Europe more attention has been given to the negative landforms — the closed depressions.

Closed depressions interrupt or seem to replace the valley drainage networks, and were regarded by European geomorphologists as the main organizational units in the by: 1.

The major karst areas in China are located in densely populated and economically important regions, particularly in the northeast, south and southwest (Figs. 1 and 2). Moreover, the distribution of karstic rocks is so widespread that almost every geomorphological type of karst can be found in China Cited by: 1.The word karst is a Germanized form of the name of a carbonate plateau that is situated above the Adriatic Sea immediately to the east of Trieste, Italy, and covers about km 2 (Fig.

2).The regional name for this area is Kras from the pre-Indo-European root Ka(r) meaning stone or rock (Gams, ).Variations on the name include Carusadus, Karusad, Grast, Krs, and Carso.The geology of China (or the geological structure of the People's Republic of China) consists of three Precambrian cratons surrounded by a number of orogenic modern tectonic environment is dominated by the continued collision of India with the rest of Asia starting 40–50 million years ago.
