Overview

This book describes Hungarian karst areas and Hungarian karst research results. The chapters present the general characteristics of karst areas, their geology, their paleokarst, their hydrology, their surface and subsurface morphology (more significant caves are classified according to karst areas and their morphology and development is described), ecology and flora and fauna. This book also includes a separate chapter which deals with the history of Hungarian karst and cave research. Another chapter deals with theories that were made during Hungarian karst researches.

From 1984 he was the lecturer of the West Hungarian University, from 2006 he is a professor. From 1990 he is the head of the Department for Physical Geography. Between 2006 and 2012 he is the director of the Institute for Geography and Environmental Science and the dean of the Faculty for Natural Science. Between 2001 and 2002 he is vice-rector. He is responsible for the course of Geographers BsC and MsC, he is the head of the Doctoral School of Environmental Sciences and he is professor emeritus at ELTE University currently. His research fields are karst morphology within this, karren, covered karsts and modelling of karstic processes. He carried out his field studies mainly in the karst areas of Central Europe, but he also organized research expeditions in other parts of the world, thus in China (1990), Iceland (1997), Chile (2002), Himalayas (2003), Madagascar (2004) and Lena (2012). He is the author of over 200 articles over 30 books and book chapters. He is currently the chief editor of the journal 'Karsztfejlodes'. He is a member of the Editoral Board at various international journals and a Series Advisory Editor of the Springe Geography book series. Most recently he co-authored the book Glaciokarsts , which was published by Springer in 2019. Szabolcs Leel-Ossy completed his MSC studies at Eoetvoes Lorand University (ELTE) in Budapest. He obtained his PhD in 1998. He is a geologist and associate professor at ELTE University. He served as President of the Hungarian Karst and Cave Research Association during 16 years and Associate President of the Hungarian Geological Society during 6 years. He is an expert on karst and cave research in Hungary. (He was one of the leaders of the discovery group of the Jozsefhegy Crystal Cave in 1984, and - together with Peter Adamko - discovered around 30 other, smaller caves in Budapest). He carried out his field studies mainly in the karst areas of Central, Western and Eastern Europe. He also organized research expeditions and travels in other parts of the world, such as in Mongolia (1982), India (1983), China (1985), Peru and Brazil (1993), Iceland (1996 and 2019), Canada and USA (1998), Australia and New Zealand (2000 and 2014), Chile and Brasilia (2001 and 2018) USA and Mexico (2002 and 2009), Thailand and Japan (2003 ), Vietnam and China (2004), Syria and Lebanon (2006), Malaysia (2007), China and Taiwan (2008), Morocco (2013), Iran (2016), Kyrgyzistan (2018), Indonesia (2018), and Jordan (2020).
