   Recharge derived from precipitation directly onto the karst landscape. Diffuse autogenic recharge is used to describe the slow percolation of recharge through a myriad of small openings while concentrated autogenic recharge is used to describe the concentrated recharge that occurs by flow into large fractures, sinkholes, and sinking streams.
