Abstract

The recent karstic patterns of glaciokarst are presented. Karstic pattern is described taking karst types and karst-type assemblages into consideration. The recent karstification and pattern of the areas of former cirque glaciers, valley glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets and piedmont glaciers are presented. The recent karstic pattern and development of the karst of glaciokarst types (plateau glaciokarst, semi-plateau glaciokarst, mountain glaciokarst, rock fortress, ridge glaciokarst, complex glaciokarst and island glaciokarst) are analysed and described.
