Loess pseudokarst in recent decades has been developing very rapidly and causes significant material damage. Every year, as a result of the development of loess pseudokarst, tens of thousands of hectares of valuable irrigated land are left out of the crop rotation. This is a very rapidly developing process (months, days, hours). Classification of types of loess pseudokarst depending on the conditions of its development is given. An augmented classification of pseudokarst relief forms based on the physical and chemical properties of the loess is also presented. A brief description of the types and forms of loess pseudokarst poorly illuminated in the literature is given. The nature of the interaction of some natural and technogenic processes with loess pseudokarst is considered.
