scientific project on cave morphology and tectonic movements

  Dr. Alex Dudashvili   and the Fund of Preservation and Exploration of Caves are leading a scientific project with the Kyrgyz-Russia Slavic University The aim of the project is   to estimate of paleoearthquake frequency in the Kyrgyzstan area   and get more data   on the frequency or recurrence of the ancient earthquakes which shook   Central Asia. Scientists try    to understand   the   correlation of cave morphology with tectonic movements and   to improve    interpretation and reconstruction of paleo-seismic events .   Sponsors, partners and scientists interested in the project are   most welcome !   Contact :
