Karst areas occupy 10-20 % if ice free land. Dissolution of rock by natural waters has given rise to specific landscape and underground.  Karst surface features and caves have attracted man's curiosity since the dawn of humanity and have been a focus to scientific studies since more than half of milenia.

Acta Carsologica publishes orginial research papers and reviews, letters, essays and reports covering topics related to specific of karst areas. These comprise, but are not limited to karst geology, hydrology and geomorphology, speleology, hydrogeology, biospeleology and history of karst science.

Vol 42, No 2-3 (2013)

Selected papers from an international and multidisciplinary symposium on Carbon and Boundaries in Karst, Carlsbad, New Mexico, January 7 to January 11, 2013, organised by Karst Waters Institute (KWI) and the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCRKI).
