ABSTRACT
The work is aimed to study geomorphological conditions of territory and estimation of its influence on the activity and hazard of karst evolution. Geomorphological conditions are considering from the position of next four factors: slope of relief, distance from river net, excess above the average water level in rivers, slope of basin. Relationships between these factors and karst forms were studied with using methods of mathematical statistics and correlation-regression analysis. In the result were obtained integral distributions of karst form by values of studied factors and regression equations, which allows to prognosis karst hazard on the base of geomorphology of the area.

Keywords: karst, geomorphological factors, karst massif, karst hazard, indexed values
