That glaciokarst is 1. a karst landscape that was glaciated during the cold periods of the pleistocene and displays major landforms of relict glacial origin. bare rock scars, locally with glacial striations, and limestone pavements are characteristic, due to the lack of rapid soil formation on the limestones since glacial stripping. dolines within a glaciokarst are mostly small and immature, as are caves, except where pre-glacial passages are intercepted. glaciokarst is almost synonymous with alpine karst, and some of the finest is developed on the high plateaus of the calcareous alps, south of salzburg, austria [9]. 2. a glaciated limestone region possessing both glacial and karst characteristics [10].
