In 2013 we’ll celebrate 100 years anniversary of the eminent geographer and karstologist of the Soviet times Nikolay A. Gvozdietskiy. He worked at the Moscow State University throughout most of his life, in the Department of Landscape Studies and Physical Geography. His scientific activity as a karstologist took place in the period of formation and flourishing of karst science in the former Soviet Union. Geographer Gvozdietskiy, together with hydrogeologist G.A. Maksimovich (from Perm) and speleologist V.N. Dublyanskiy (from Simferopol) formed for decades the profile of the Soviet karstological and speleological science and were its “visiting card” abroad up to the 80s. Karstological studies of Gvozdietskiy were diverse in nature but focused on general issues of karsology within the so-called geographical approach.
