Karst Induced Geo-hazards in Egypt: Case Study Slope Stability Problems Along Some Selected Desert Highways
Karst environments are characterized by distinctive landforms related to dissolution characteristics. Karst terrains, frequently underlain by cavernous carbonate and/or evaporite rocks, may induce ground instability problems. Impacts and problems associated with karst are rapidly increasing as development expands upon the karst prone areas. This has led to an escalation of karst-related environmental and engineering problems such as landslides developed on ... إقراء المزيد
