Abstract: 

The detailed characteristics of surface karst forms of massif Orta-Sirt in Crimean Mountains . Attention was paid to morphometric characteristics of surface karst forms: diameter, volume, depth, density and square. On the basis of each indicator was created a map. Overall it was done and analyzed five maps. Its ascertained, that array Orta-Sirt massif has two hypsometric levels, the most karst of them is upper level. The deepest sluggies are concerned with fractures zone. The most karst is in central part of massif. These data is a valuable source of information on the conditions of surface karst forms of relief development.

Key words:
