The studies reported in this book investigated the little explored subject of incomplete solution of limestones and dolomites. There was a surprising presence of significant quantities of carbonate clasts in cave sediments as well as an occurrence of thick, soft zones of an unknown mineral on the walls of cave passages. Contents include: Weathering of Limestone and Dolomite in the Cave Environment, Formation of Autochthonous Carbonate Clasts, and Conclusions.
