State Geologists Map For Sinkhole Prone Areas

Lead in text: 
Researchers with the Florida Geological Survey are developing a color-coded map displaying sinkhole vulnerability across the state.
A predictive model will be used to map areas vulnerable to collapse and could also set a new standard for sinkhole-vulnerability studies in other states and countries, which typically compile maps of existing sinkholes but do not have predictive maps showing where new ones might form.
