英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Karst landforms cover a considerable area of the Earth's surface. With increasing population and demand for further land exploitation, the prospect of being affected by karsts has increased dramatically over the past decades. Among karst landforms, salt karsts show higher vulnerability and faster evolution in the human life-span. In Iran, most of salt karst studies have been carried out in the south (mainly Zagros). Contrariwise, the northern and central parts of the country have been rarely studied. This study investigates a salt karst system in the northeastern part of the Central Iran. Field investigation and satellite image analysis of the area revealed a salt karst in the Upper Red Formation (URF) comprising elements of a mature karstic system including dolines, ponors,...
