ABSTRACT
Within the limits of various geological conditions development and distribution of surface and underground karst forms and consequently, karst forecasting possesses specific features. At the present stage of development of engineering karstology there was a necessity of change of paradigm of karst forecast from the reduced variant of the «practical» analysis of parameters of the surface karst forms and their formal distribution on territory on the «complete» analysis considering features of spatial distribution, morphology and parameters surface and underground karst forms arising under influence of features of the geological-hydrogeological structure of the karst massifs. Authors, as an example, for territory of classical development of sulfatecarbonate karst in Preduralie identified the intervals of values of parameters optimum geological-hydrogeological conditions occurrence and developments of karst forms which can be used at the initial stages of the karstologic forecast are certain.

Key words: geologic structure, karst forms, karst danger, forecast
