      Karst regions contain aquifers that are capable of providing large supplies of water. More than 25 percent of the world’s population either lives on or obtains its water from karst aquifers. In the United States, approximately 20 percent of the land surface is karst and roughly 20 percent of all groundwater withdrawals in the year came. approach by compiling regions of known and potential karst in the United States using the latest, most. 2 detailed digital geologic map information. While this approach is representative of karst potential, a complex interaction of many factors determines the formation, localization, and intensity of karstCited by:

    It is notable for its extensive karst limestone, which comprise the caves at Mammoth Cave National Park. This region includes a portion of what the U.S. Forest service calls the "Central Hardwood Forest". The region extends from southern Ohio, Indiana and Illinois through Tennessee and central Kentucky and into northern : Temperate broadleaf and mixed forests.   Karst is a term used to describe an area where limestone bedrock has eroded in an irregular manner. This irregular erosion is caused by the dissolution of limestone, which occurs as water is transported through the rock. As a result, these areas are often characterized by extremely variable rock surfaces, rock pinnacles, solution channels, sinkholes, and caves that may not be able to.

Karst regions of Illinois Two conditions are necessary for karst landscapes (green areas on map): (1) Soluble rocks, generally limestone and dolostone, must lie at or near the surface of the ground.

(2) The loose soil covering the soluble bedrock must be thinner than about 50 feet. Karst Areas (0) Description: This feature class shows the distribution of areas that contain one or more sinkholes throughout the state of Illinois. Areas that contain sinkholes are susceptible to aquifer contamination and may also lack the stability required for certain land-uses.

Sinkholes are one of the major indicators of karst terrains. Karst is a geological system of rocks where water has eroded (dissolved) the it is very extensive, karst can be a geographical or topographical is classed as a badland if it difficult to travel through the environment, which it often is.

Almost always, karst is formed in carbonate rocks, such as limestone or carbonate sedimentary rocks are very common. @article{osti_, title = {Mapping karst regions of Illinois: Preliminary results}, author = {Weibel, C.P. and Panno, S.V.}, abstractNote = {Groundwater contamination may be significant in shallow aquifers in the parts of Illinois where karst occurs.

Problems with ground-water contamination in shallow aquifers in karst areas may be significant in parts of Illinois. Karst is a topography formed from the dissolution of soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, and is characterized by underground drainage systems with sinkholes and caves.

It has also been documented for more weathering-resistant rocks, such as quartzite, given the right conditions.

Subterranean drainage may limit surface water, with few to no rivers or lakes. Karst regions, areas underlain by limestone, dolomite, marble, gypsum, and salt, constitute about 25% of the land surface of the world. They are areas of abundant resources including water supplies, limestone quarries, minerals, oil, and natural gas.

Many karst terrains make beautiful housing sites for urban development. Geological and Geophysical Maps of the Illinois Basin-Ozark Dome Region Twelve 34"× 27" map sheets; each map depicts a different data theme for the 4-state area of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky; page report includes text and 12 figures.

All 50 States contain rocks with potential for karst development, and about 18 percent of their area is underlain by soluble rocks having karst or the potential for development of karst features.

The areas of soluble rocks shown are based primarily on selection from State geologic maps of rock units containing significant amounts of carbonate.

The “Driftless Area” of the upper Mississippi River valley is the unglaciated region of the upper midwest. While glaciers encroached on the region from north, west, and east, the karst geology of the region is thought to have limited the flow of glacial ice during the most recent (Wisconsinan) glaciation over what is now parts of four states bordering the Mississippi River.The Driftless Area is a region in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois, of the American region escaped the flattening effects of glaciation during the last ice age and is consequently characterized by steep, forested ridges, deeply carved river valleys, and karst geology characterized by spring-fed.
