We digitized all identifiable sinkholes in each set of photographs in a GIS Geographical Information System using a set of criteria established to differentiate between karst depressions and depressions resulting from other geological processes.
Natural & anthropogenic hazards in karst areas:Recognition, Analysis, Mitigation
The photographs, although of low quality, helped to establish a baseline prior to urbanization. The photographs provided a post-urbanization distribution of natural sinkholes and man-made depression features e.
From these two data sets, we are able to assess natural and anthropogenic changes in the karst landscape of the study area. Many of the lost depressions have been incorporated into retention ponds. Gunn Eds. Brinkmann, Robert; Wilson, K. School of Geosciences Faculty and Staff Publications.
