Science Night Live: Sinkholes of Doom: Understanding Collapsing Landscapes

Sinkholes form all over the world, but there are some places where they form more than others. Why is there such a variation in sinkhole formation over time and space? Why do places like Brooklyn and Florida seem to get more sinkholes than other places? This lecture will review the formation of some of the most dramatic sinkholes on the planet -- including some in our own backyard.
