Hydrologic, geologic, geomorphic, and mass-balance data suggest that most of the approx. 30 000 playa lake basins on the Southern High Plains have developed by a combination of dissolution of caliche and piping of surface material into the unsaturated zone rather than by eolian processes as has generally been stated.-from Authors
