The article discusses formation and transformation processes of collapse dolines in the hinterland of Ljubljanica river springs near Vrhnika. The characteristics and mechanisms of fl at loamy sediment fl oors in collapse dolines have been studied in detail. Loamy sediment fi lls in the collapse dolines are the result of suspended material sedimentation from fl oodwaters that inundated lower parts of collapse dolines. The method of ground electrical resistance established that the thickness of loamy sediment fi lls might reach more than 30 meters.
