UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

Speleogenesis website is a non-profit web platform aimed to promote karst and cave studies and integrate the international scholarly community through information exchange, communication, and collaboration. Started in 2013 as the Speleogenesis.info website, it developed and maintained various networking and information resources (Speleogenesis Network), serving as a hub of collaborative activities of individual researchers and research institutions involved in karst and geospeleology studies.

With time and the development of new Internet standards, the Speleogenesis.info website became technologically outdated and rather difficult to maintain. The content became increasingly outdated, too, as instruments for its creation available to the community were not friendly enough. This was one of the reasons why the popularity of the site has significantly declined.

The managing team has eventually decided to create a new website at Speleogenesis.com based on modern and efficient technologies and engines, and translate to it the most demanded tools and services from the old site. The old site (Speleogenesis.info) remains operating but registration there is closed and new information is not provided. Personal accounts in the Speleogenesis Network are transferred to the new site but previously registered users are requested to renew their login/password credentials after the first log-in to the new site. If you forgot your login/password in the old system, please try to use the reset password option or register as a new user. Those who have no accounts at the old site are kindly invited to register.

Speleogenesis.com offers the karst/cave science community up-to-date and efficient tools for publishing and disseminating announcements and news about any aspects of activities in the field – research projects, publications, events, job opportunities, exploration, etc. The privileged users can additionally disseminate “hot” news via Speleogenesis Network email list, which contains over 1,100 recipients (request this status if you feel that you need it, or just contact administrators to dissiminate your published news though the list). The site maintains archives of news for each category, contains Glossary of karst/cave terminology, KarstBase, Karst and Cave Journals index, and the full archive of the journal Speleogenesis and Evolution of Karst Aquifers.

We invite the karst/cave scholars to explore the new site at 


Join its community and use its rich functionality to foster information exchange, communication, and collaboration.

Sincerely yours,
Speleogenesis Team
