Karst Lateral Cave Landscape
Reference work entry
This is a landform of karst caves created by lateral water flow in which the cave channel extends horizontally or nearly horizontally. Most form in the shallow saturated water zone or the aquifer zone. They are most common in karst plains. Based on the shape, karst lateral caves can be divided into channel-type (single, dendritic and labyrinth shapes), chamber-type and composite channel-chamber type (Fig. 19).
