  • Tell me what a sinkhole is?
  • A sinkhole is a a cavity in the ground, especially in limestone bedrock, caused by water erosion and providing a route for surface water to disappear underground.
  • Acid rain is rainfall made sufficiently acidic by atmospheric pollution that it causes environmental harm. Dissolution can be explained as the breakdown of the crystal lattice into individual ions, atoms or molecules and their transport into the solvent. Chemical weathering is the breaking down of rocks.
  • An aquifer is a body of permeable rock that can contain or transmit groundwater. Groundwater is water held underground in the soil or in pores and crevices in the rock.
