Abstract (in english)
   The author explains inclear priories of the terms hydrothermal karst, geysermite, and vadose zone. Hydrothermal karst - karst forms, produced by hot water were described already by J. Nöggerath (1845) and J. Desnoyers (1845). In the Czech literature, the term was introduced by E. Michal 1929-1930, and the term thermomineral karstification in 1941. Both terms were used in the description of Zbrašov Aragonite Caves. Geysermite first time appeared in a guide from 1934 (geyser stalagmites) by J. Chromy. The first published description of those are in the contribution of W. Czoernig-Czernhausen (1932-1933). He described them as "Quellenstalagmiten" (spring stalagmites). Vadose hydrological zone in Karst was characterized by F. Pošepny (1893), who used the term vadose also in connection with formation of cavities
