Speleology (from the Greek. Spélaion – cave and lógos – word, doctrine) – a complex science, a branch of natural science engaged in a comprehensive study of caves – their geological origin, morphology, mineralization, microclimate, composition and properties of cave waters.

Speleology, as a branch of geology, namely karstology, mineralogy and hydrogeology, studies natural caves – their origin, evolution, age, morphology, mineralogy, ecosystem, hydrogeological and microclimatic features of the caves, their modern and ancient fauna, enclosing rocks.
