(German, possibly of Slavic origin; plural, Kamenice.) A small depression (a few meters in diameter and several centimeters deep) in a level calcareous surface, enlarged by the solution effect of water collecting between slight undulations. It is developed vertically at first by stagnant water; the steep sides thus evolved then induce the flow of water which flutes the slope and so eventually widens the basin. Sediments and low orders of plant life frequently collect on the even floor, the latter aiding further solution by reactivating the pH of the water [19].
   Synonyms: (French.) kamenice; (German.) Opferkeßel; (Greek.) lakouva, ythrolakkos; (Russian.) bljudoe; (Spanish.) cuenco, tinajita; (Turkish.) erime tavas 2; (Yugoslavian.) kamenica, skalne kotlice, scalba, skalnica.
   See also solution pan; water pot.
