Pseudokarst in the United States
William R. Halliday


Features analogous to those characteristic of karstic areas are distributed widely in the western United States, but have received little study. The most obvious of these are found in basalt flows but they also occur in littoral zones, glaciers, and certain poorly consolidated sediiments. These features must be considered in defining terms applied to geomorphic forms which occur in either karst or pseudokarst.
