IV6 NEW DEVELOPMENT OF KARST RESEARCH
IN THE FORMER USSR
During my visit in Russia, July, 1992, I talked to many karst friends from Russia and other countries of the former USSR. I saw meanwhile, a lot of karst publications. Most of them are written in Russian, and may not be known outside. I found there have been great progress in karst research in the former USSR during the past couple of decades, both in foundamental and practical aspects. A general view could be got through the available publications as follows:
1. Foundamentals of karstology, vol.2, problems of karst hydrogeology, rivers and lakes of karst regions, karst of chalk, hydrothermal karst, 529pages, by G.A.Maksimovich, Perm Institute of karstology and speleology. 1969.
2. Karst, N.A.Gvozdetzeky, 215 pages. Masli Publishing House, Moscow,1981.
3. Terminology of karst, by D.A.Temofeev; V.N.Dyblyansky; T.Z.Kiknadze,259 pages. With English and Russian indices. Science Press, Moscow, 1991.
4. CAVES, Transactions of the Institute of karstology and speleology,154 pages. Perm, 1990.
5. Speleology, terminology, its relation with other sciences, classification of caves, V.N.Dyblyansky, V.N.Andreytchuk, 34 pages, Kungur, 1989.
