Description :
This paper explores the possibilities of dating landform exposure by determining the timing of karst initiation across the region. The extensive salt karst system developed in Mount Sedom salt diapir, Israel, during the Holocene, is used. Multilevel vadose caves were C 14 dated using wood fragments embedded in alluvial deposits. The oldest date of each cave is used to constrain the age of the salt exposure.
