geomorphology of karst, exhumation of karst forms, Liptovská kotlina Basin, Slovakia
The article attempts to offer the picture of geomorphic situation and exhumation of the Hybe karst located in the eastern part of the Liptov Basin. The area under investigation represents the type of basin karst of pediment plains and corresponds to the fourth grade of karstification. The Hybe karst is linked to carbonate tectonic subsiding blocks, which in the consequence of pediplanating processes formed river level in the Pliocene. Glacifluvial sediments covered it in the Pleistocene. Geomorphic mapping was focused on two levels of recognition of the territory. One of them was represented by geomorphic analysis of the morphometric and morphogenetic aspects of the whole territory at scale 1:25 000, the other was detailed mapping of a part of the territory under the process of exhumation. Man impact on the environment was characterized from the viewpoint of destruction of karstic forms and potential influencing of surface and ground waters. Territory is classified into eight geomorphic types. Exhumation of surface karst forms shows an accelerated development under the effect of land use. Comparison of the obtained results with those of Droppa (1967), which he attained 35 years ago allows for the statment that the number of sinkholes increased from 24 (three of them were destroyed by man) to 32, i.e. by 11 sinkholes during the period in question. Their development continues in different conditions, particularly their depth and shape change. It is also confirmed by analysis of aerial images from two time horizons (1947 and 1992).
