(also dolina dɒˈliːnə)
Definition of doline in English:
A hollow or basin in a karstic region, typically funnel-shaped.
- Such openings are spaced some distance apart in most limestones and these are the features that may become selectively enlarged into characteristic karstic landforms such as dolines, caves, swallow-holes, and gorges.
- The entrance was a spectacular doline 150m across and 100m deep where a devious route down lunged from tree to tree with only the occasional bamboo ladder or dodgy hand line for assistance.
- Just to make sure there was not a way on at the other end of the last entrance doline, they thrashed through the leech infested jungle, but found nothing.
