Explanation:
O endereço abaixo é um glossário de espeleologia (estudo de cavernas). Ali encontrei dolina:

DOLINE. n. A closed depression on the surface of a karst area, which drains run-off rain water to a single low point. A doline may or may not contain the entrance to a cave or pothole. The shape of the depression may vary considerably from one to another, however they often resemble the shape of a bowl, cone, cylinder or elongated shape, ranging in size from a few to many hundreds of metres
