O článku:
The paper discusses geomorphological features of Slovenia’s dolomite areas, which cover about a tenth of its surface. It describes the most important dolomite relief features in Slovenia and analyses the most important geomorphological processes. Dolomite is a carbonate rock so it is easily dissolvable in water. Compared with limestone relief, the transformation process in dolomite relief is more rapid due to the high rate of physical weathering processes. Geomorphological fieldwork was carried out in two case areas in the Polhov Gradec hills and on the Žibrše plateau. Characteristic relief has developed in dolomite areas due to the interaction of fluvial and karst processes, which have so far (sometimes incorrectly) been designated as fluvial karst.
