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 forms 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 use the term vadose also in connection with formation of cavities.

Kranjc, Andrej

In the middle of the 19th century caving and speleological activities were well developed in Kranjska (Carniola) already. F. Kraus took an interest in our karst by 1878. In 1879 he founded "Verein für Höhlenkunde" and a year later "Karst Comité". Soon afterwards he wanted to set up a branch of "Verein" at Postojna. In Planina he had 50 future members already. In summer of 1889 some villagers of Veliki Otok near Postojna discovered the entrance to so-called Otoška jama, making a part of Postojnska jama system. The dispute about the ownership and how to share the income of Postojnska jama aroused. And soon afterwards in Postojna the club Anthron was founded - a reaction to this discovery. Anthron was an exclusive club with limited number of members who must live in Postojna - and majority were members of Postojnska jama Cave (Managing) Commission. The Anthron members discovered an important part of Postojnska jama system, explored caves nearby and helped the best known speleologists of that time such as Kraus, Martel, Perko and Putick. When Speleological club was set up in Ljubljana and Perko announced the foundation of Speleological Institute at Postojna, the club Anthron was dismissed. Thus the documents prove that continuous organised speleological activity started in Slovenia in 1889.
