Abstract (in english)
   Gamma-ray spectrometry data on contents of potassium, uranium and thorium in Devonian limestones of the Moravian Karst are summarized in the paper. Limestones present in the endokarst have significantly higher values of uranium content compared to those exposed in the outcrops above the caves. The present authors consider the positive uranium anomaly in the limestones as resulting from the process of karstification
