Active and relict alluvial fans on contact karst of the Vrhpoljska brda hills, Slovenia

Auteur :
STEPIŠNIK, U.

Description :
Several types of contact karst are found within the Slovenian karst, but the most common is the ponor type, which usually develops at boundaries between flysch and limestone. One of these types is in the area of Vrhpoljska brda. In this contact karst area two types of alluvial fans appear on carbonate bedrock. Members of the first type are ordinary alluvial fans with active alluvial processes where flysch derived sediment covered limestone surface in a distinct fan shape. - (L'A.).
