The Karst of the Bol'shoj Tkhach (NW Caucasus, Russia), BHB Vol. 25   

Price:  $22.00 

60 pages, many surveys and maps; Berlin 2008. Norbert Marwan, Oksana Yur'evna Krickaya, Andrej Aleksandrovich Ostapenko. Overview about the Karst of the Bol'shoj Tkhach massif in the NW Caucasus, with a comprehensive description of its karst phenomena as well as the caves of this area. In English language, with a Russian and German abstract. The Bol'shoj Tkhach massif in the NW Caucasus is a small but beautiful karst area of sub-alpine/ alpine characteristic. It comprises several, rather different caves. Visitable caves are mostly fossil, with large calcite crystals (decimetres range) or thick layers of moonmilk. Moreover, some vertical caves and siphons await future exploration and promise much unexplored continuation. Cave exploration in this area was done mainly by local speleologists. Additional research was done by various external speleologists and international expeditions. This report summarises the current knowledge about the karst area of the Bol'shoj Tkhach based on the work done so far by the several data sources available.
