Palaeoclimate, Environment and Climate Change

Central Asia, extending between the Caucasus and the eastern Tibetan Plateau, with a semiarid/arid belt with water shortage to the west and a glaciered mountainous area with very unstable surface conditions to the east, holds a key position for understanding geodynamic and climate processes. Given the climatic and topographic features, Central Asia provides a natural laboratory to monitor risk scenarios related to water excess and shortage, and high seismicity. This initiative aims to investigate cause-effect-relations of landscape evolution at different spatial and temporal scales using ground and space based monitoring systems.....

Speleothems and Monitoring

Changes in interannual rainfall patterns in Central Asia have serious direct impacts on water resources with enormous consequences in supply of drinking water and electrical power. Especially the region around the Fergana basin is a highly vulnerable region for climate hazards (floods and droughts)....

Karst of Kyrgyzstan
                                                                                               VORWORT
Die Erforschung des Karstes ist nicht nur von praktischer, sondern auch von theoretischer Bedeutung, indem sie cs ermoglicht, die Be-sonderheit der Entstehung, der Entwicklung der Karstformen zu er-mittein und ihre Verbindung mit den geologischen, geomorphologi-schen, hydrogeologischen und klimatischen Verhaltnissen der Gebirge festzustellen. Die palakarstologische Rekonstruktion der Landschaft gestattet es, die Epochcn der Karstbildung abzugrenzen und die dy-namik der Karstentwicklung in den einzelnen Zeitperioden zu bes-timmen.
 
                                                                                        ПРЕДИСЛОВИЕ
Изучение карста имеет не только практическое, но и теоретическое значение, позволяя выявить особенности возникновения, развития и размещения карстовых форм, их связь с геологическими, геоморфологическими, гидрогеологическими и климатическими условиями горно-складчатых сооружений. Палеокарстологические реконструкции позволяют выделять эпохи карстообразования и восстанавливать динамику развития карста во времени.
