Abstract (in english)
   The authors documented karst phenomena in the coastal area of northwestern Syria. A speleological map, description of locations, cave maps and photodocumentation was the result of this work, which had never beeb done before in Syria. Karst phenomena in the area of 6 000 km2 were registered. A new opinion on the origin of large morphological depressions east of the town of Querdaha in the Jebel An Saryiah Mts. is presented in this paper. The depressions wer subject to tentative exploitation of mineral raw materials. The authors see authors the oriigin of extensive depressions in karstification processes along pipe volcanic bodies, not in explosive volcanism as described by previous authors. Detailed exploration of karst hydrology would be of great help in searching for water sources and their protection. The examination of karstification is of great economic and educational importance, especially in those countries whose surface is predominantly formed by carbonate rocks
