The Limestone Landscape

Limestone landforms, also called karst landform, it is on the limestone rock formation of the landscape. The main composition of limestone is calcium carbonate, its biggest characteristic is easy to be acidic water dissolves. Natural moisture and carbon dioxide from the air in the reaction, generate the karst formed a necessary condition of carbonate, again with the biological effect of carbonic acid, react with underground limestone. The calcium ion in the calcium carbonate salt rock is carbonate transfer out, and was taken away by the groundwater, seemingly so hard rock is a little water dissolution. According to the landscape characteristics of karst landform is divided into several types: type with Clint, featuring stone pillars of stone forest, peak cluster, also the characteristics of guilin type, type represented by the grand canyon in the three gorges, and represented by karst cave cave, hole type.
