ABSTRACT
/Full article available only in Bulgarian language/

The methodological assessment of the geological phenomena
(geotopes, geosites) is an important step in judging their geoconservation
significance. The present Expert Card provides a tentative test for
assessment based on 16 common criteria: aesthetic, scientific, research,
educational, ecological, entertainment, ethnographic, social and spiritual
values, sense of place, possibility for inclusion in geopark, sensitivity,
degree of study, preservation, exposure and access. The first 7 criteria are
considered important for determining which example falls above or below a
“threshold of significance” representing an average degree of excellence
providing at least local significance of the geosites. The final assessment
reveals the level of significance of the geosites in the so-called “spatial
context” – local, national, regional, continental or global.
