accelerated corrosion
A localized concentration of solution intensity, produced by factors favoring greater aggressivity of the water in certain parts of the karstland creating differential solution rates and thereby a marked unevenness in the overall erosion of the karstland [19]. See also corrosion; alluvial corrosion.
