The Crimean Mts. in the southern part of the Crimean Peninsula are a tectonically active area characterized by the great dynamics of the formation of the relief, including especially wide landslides and intense development of the erosive shapes. The asymmetric morphostructure of the mountains is the northern limb of the anticline, formerly a vast mountain ridge. The basis for the research was a geomorphological survey and the creation of the database for the geomorphological information system. However, the goal of the work was not only compilation, but the complete recognition of the present geomorphological processes in relation to the tectonic aspects of the development of the relief. Concurrently, thanks to agreement between the University of Ostrava and the I. Frank National University of Lviv, an exchange of research workers was possible (Hradecký, et al. 1999). Research of the alpine part of the Crimean Peninsula will continue buring the following years. The main sets of the research will be these thematic spheres: a detailed documentation of active faults, Quaternary tectonics and dislocations of river terraces and other Quaternary sediments, the creation of a digital model of the Crimean Mts. and a detailed morphostructural analysis of the evolution of the mountain landscape of the southern part of the Crimean Peninsula.
