That interstratal karst is karst topography that is covered by and developed beneath prekarst rock or sediment and may or may not be part of the contemporary landscape. it is younger than its cover and is formed by the solution of soluble rock in the subsurface, most commonly beneath relatively insoluble rock such as sandstone or chert. the term refers to areal solution rather than to cave development but is also applicable to rejuvenated mantled karst and rejuvenated buried karst. subsoil karst is transitional to interstratal karst . synonyms: (french.) karst sous-jacent; (german.) unterirdisches karstphanomen; (greek.) kalymenon karst; (italian.) carso coperto; (spanish.) karst interstradal; (turkish.) tabakalar arasi karst. see also buried karst; denuded karst; covered karst.?
