Visiting Explorer Program with Anatoliy Bulychov

The phenomenon of Capricorn karsts and the achievements of cavers of Siberia

Anatoliy Bulychov is a member of the International Union of Speleologists, who has led many expeditions which have resulted in caving discoveries. He is an international mountain guide (BMC), and master of sports (athletics) in alpinism (mountaineering).

The International Congress of Speleologists took place this past year in Sydney, covering a wide range of karsts studies, either classical, alpine or pseudo-karsts and volcanic caves (Hawaii, Jejudo). Fieldworks covered included a variety of geomorphologic forms, and also the Rock Hampton karsts with Capricorn caves containing basalt inclusions. At the same time massive basalt rocks have karst caves on contacts with enclosing limestone.

Anatoliy (one of two representatives of Russia at the Congress) made an invited report on the technique for studying caves, developed by him and his fellows on the basis of the Novosibirsk State University for dozens of years. He also presented the latest results of the Siberian speleologists' research.

He will share his findings with us here at the Club, as a well as other stories from beneath the earth's surface.
