Das Karstgebiet des Bol'soj Thac

N. Marwan

The limestone massif of Bolsoj Thac is an alpine to tempered karst landscape with its typical karst phenomena. These phenomena reveal a distinct fossil character. The most caves are fossil, small and decorated with dripstone. They are relicts of large extended cave systems which were eroded. Caves are complex living areals and may contain archaeological finds of cultural importance. The enormous sensibility of karst areas and their importance for the nature and archaeology have to be considered to all decisions about any use.
