Notes

General Note:
The first version of the world map of carbonate rocks appeared in Ford Williams (1989) Karst Geomorphology and Hydrology. A revision was published in Williams Ford (2006) Zeitschrift für Geomorphologie Suppl-Vol 147, 1-2, and used in Ford Williams (2007) Karst Hydrogeology and Geomorphology (Wiley). This v3.0 revision is in greater detail and attempts to differentiate those areas where carbonate rocks are relatively pure and continuous from those where they are abundant but discontinuous or impure. It was prepared by Paul Williams and Yin Ting Fong using a multitude of sources the most important of which are acknowledged in Williams Ford (2006). The map was assembled using GIS on an Eckert IV equal-area projection. Most carbonate rocks are susceptible to karstification, although not all are well karstified. Thus the area of carbonate rock outcrop provides an upper limit on the area of exposed karst terrain. Extensive karstified carbonate rock also exists in subcrop, but is not mapped here.

Description
The first version of
the world map of carbonate rocks appeared in Ford &
Williams (1989) Karst Geomorphology and Hydrology. A revision
was published in Williams & Ford (2006) Zeitschrift fr
Geomorphologie Suppl-Vol 147, 1-2, and used in Ford &
Williams (2007) Karst Hydrogeology and Geomorphology (Wiley).
This v3.0 revision is in greater detail and attempts to
differentiate those areas where carbonate rocks are relatively
pure and continuous from those where they are abundant but
discontinuous or impure. It was prepared by Paul Williams and
Yin Ting Fong using a multitude of sources the most important
of which are acknowledged in Williams & Ford (2006). The
map was assembled using GIS on an Eckert IV equal-area
projection. Most carbonate rocks are susceptible to
karstification, although not all are well karstified. Thus the
area of carbonate rock outcrop provides an upper limit on the
area of exposed karst terrain. Extensive karstified carbonate
rock also exists in subcrop, but is not mapped here.
