Description :
Nine different cave drips were monitored and sampled for three hydrological years in fractured karst lithology on Mount Carmel, Israel. At three drips, discharge was measured continuously by tipping buckets. Rainfall and soil water content were recorded above the cave. An artificial tracer experiment was conducted using uranine placed in a joint and at the soil-rock interface at soil pockets, both above the cave. Four hydrological types of drips: post-storm, seasonal, perennial, and overflow, were identified; each demonstrating different characteristics in terms of discharge and chemistry.
