Museum of Natural History, – Dept. of Karst and Caves, Vienna

Our Department ist a research- and documentation unit of the Museum. Main goals are research in all fields of Karst Sciences and collecting of materials about karst and caves.

Pseudokarst – or rather caves in non-karstic rocks – is one of the several „special research“ topics.

In the past we investigated the non-karstic area north of the Danube (Southern Bohemian Massiv), some parts of the Central Alps and the (partly non karstic) caves of the easternmost province of Austria – Burgenland – where we contributed to two cave books about this area recently.

Root stalagmites – a prominent topic of pseudokarst-research in Europe - could be detected just recently in a cave and in a tunnel from WW II.
