Alexander Petrovich Karpinsky (1846 – 1936) was a Russian and Soviet geologist and mineralogist. His main research was chiefly done in the Urals, and he completed the first geological map of European Russia. He was able to preserve much scientific equipment and many invaluable records during the Russian Revolution.
Rimae Karpinskiy (an unofficial name from D.Caes for the system of pronounced rilles on the floor of Karpinskiy).
