Pseudokarst caves in present-day exploration and scientific research
Pseudokarst (non-karst) caves represent a great number of caves discovered, explored and studied currently and in the past. However, they are still underestimated in publications, presentations and media reports dedicated to cave exploration and research. Just now the International Union of Speleology is preparing its activities for the International Year of Caves and Karst. “Karst” is clearly called in this Year’s name, but we know that many caves are not related to karst. Which will be our contribution to the organisation of this year? How will non-karst caves be “visible” during this Year and discerned after its completion? This problem and other similar topics will be subjects of discussion during the 14. International Symposium of Pseudokarst in the Świętokrzyskie (Holy Cross) Mountains, Central Poland.
