EXPLORING SINKHOLES
The bedrock of Florida is limestone which is a rock that is highly subject to chemical weathering. Over time, cavities and voids near the surface may collapse and thus a sinkhole forms. Central Florida has a reputation for the prevalence of sinkholes such those in the Satellite image from the Orlando area below.

For this assignment, please provide thoughtful responses, in your own words, that includes answers to questions. There is also a sketch you will provide. You can format the document as necessary to include your answers and either insert your hand drawn sketch or attach it separately. You may also type your responses into the text submission box (make sure to number them the same way as in the assignment) and then attach or insert your hand drawn image.
1. Describe what is a sinkhole, and how it forms? Include in your response the role of the water table with respect to the formation of sinkholes.
2. After reviewing the case study below, what does the frequency of sinkhole formation seem to have with monthly precipitation? Please write a hypothesis to explain this relationship.
At least 140 new sinkholes formed in the Orlando area (Orange and Seminole Counties) between 1961 and 1986, with an average of 11 new sinkholes appearing each year (Wilson and Beck 1992). However, data from Wilson and Beck (1992) show that the appearance of new sinkholes is not equally distributed throughout the year (see Figure 1a). Also shown below is a graph of the average monthly rainfall for the Orlando area (Figure 1b).

(b) Average monthly rainfall for Orange County. From http://www.guide-to-disney.com/when-to-go-to-disney-world/rainfall.php (Links to an external site.)
3. Can a sinkhole form anywhere in any type of rock? Why or why not?
4. Describe at least two scenarios (conditions) that can contribute to a sinkhole forming.
5. If you live in Ocala, Florida, are you more likely to have a sinkhole form in your backyard during an usually dry winter or a very wet summer? Why?
6. Draw a cross section (side view showing underground features) of a sinkhole in as much detail as possible. Be sure to label the water table.
