  • Cathedral Cave, Wellington Caves, New South Wales, Australia. A multiphase, non-fluvial cave
  • Australia ; Cave ; Geomorphology ; Inventory ; Karst ; Karstification ; New South Wales ; Palaeokarst ; Stratigraphy
  • Cathedral Cave is an outstanding example of a class of multiphase caves with largely non-fluvial origins. It is possible to recognize at least 10 significant phases of speleogenesis by morphostratigraphy, in addition to the 4 generations of cave
  • -filling palaeokarst deposits intersected by the cave. The cave we see today results from the progressive integration of a number of previously disconnected or poorly connected solution cavities.
  • Eogenetic caves in Pleistocene carbonate in Slovenia
  • Cave ; Cave development ; Classification ; Conglomerate ; Diagenesis ; Karst ; Pleistocene ; Slovenia ; Speleology
  • This paper focuses on caves in Pleistocene carbonate conglomerates in Slovenia and for the first time defines them as eogenetic. The conglomerates show no deep burial that would resemble the mezogenetic stage of diagenesis and are still in the phase
  • of early diagenesis (i.e. eogenetic stage). Based on speleological analysis the eogenetic caves were grouped into four types; (1) linear stream caves, (2) shelter caves, (3) breakdown caves, and (4) vadose shafts. - (IKR)
  • Jeskyne a propasti v Ceskoslovensku.. (Caves and chasms in Czechoslovakia)
  • Distribution of karst, features, karst regions, chasms and caves in Czechoslovakia, including the show caves. Czechoslovak speleology, protection of caves and other karst features in Czechoslovakia. (MS).
  • A new history of cave development at Bungonia, N.S.W.
  • This paper presents a new developmental history of Bungonia caves based on cave morphology, clastic sediments in the caves and geological observations in the caves and their surroundings. Karst development at Bungonia can be traced back to at least
  • Magnetostratigraphy of cave sediments, Wyandotte Ridge, Crawford County, Indiana: towards a regional correlation
  • Cave ; Geochronology ; Indiana ; Kentucky ; Palaeomagnetism ; Polarization ; Stratigraphic correlation ; Stratigraphy ; United States
  • The polarity of 42 sediment samples obtained from 21 sites in Wyandotte Cave and five smaller satellite caves in Wyandotte Ridge, southern Indiana, is used as a basis for a magnetostratigraphic correlation with sediments in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky.
  • Punkva a jeji jeskynni systém v Amatérské jeskyni.. (Punkva River and its cave system of Amateur Cave)
  • The newly discovered cave system of the Punkva River in the Moravian Karst offered favourable conditions for the study of its relations to the environment. The Amateur Cave belongs to the longest in Europe and enables to complete the hydrogeological
  • Cave ; Cave development ; Erosion ; Karst ; Slovenia
  • The paper presents a denuded cave in the area of Podbojev laz, on the NW side of the Rakov Škocjan. The morphological properties of several sections of the denuded cave and its surroundings are described. It developed from an epiphreatic cave system
  • which used to function as an outflow cave system from the Rak valley. Morphometrical analysis of the slopes show that the denuded cave was developed in stages. As the surrounding surface is not flattened, the cave roof has been denuded gradually. - (L'A.).
  • Cave development under the influence of Pleistocene glaciation in the Dinarides - an example from Štirovača Ice Cave (Velebit Mt., Croatia)
  • Cave development ; Croatia ; Glacial features ; Glaciation ; Karst ; Karstification ; Palaeo-environment ; Pleistocene ; Records
  • The aim of this study is to examine the effect of Pleistocene glaciations on the speleogenesis of Štirovača Ice Cave, based on analyses of surface and cave morphology and of cave sediments, since it is well known that caves, and particularly clastic
  • sediments in caves, contain abundant information on speleogenesis and on the conditions of karstification. The AA. assume that Štirovača Ice Cave represents an important archive in regard to tha glacial history of the Velebit Mt.
  • Magyarirszag barlangjai.. (Caves of Hungary)
  • There are almost 2000 caves in Hungary. The first part of the volume reviews the history of their exploration and the second presents the major caves, their origin, description of passages, geographical environment and touristic importance. The book
  • Geographic wonders : wind cave and jewel cave. The other national treasures of the Black Hills, South Dakota
  • Cave ; Geomorphology ; Nature park ; South Dakota ; United States of America
  • Although overshadowed by Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, which has become the place image of the Black Hills, Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument comprise two important national treasures set within the regional milieu
  • of the Black Hills. These caves serve as prime examples of how very weak geomorphic processes associated with solution weathering can become dominant and render a vast and complicated subterranean landscape in an environment insulated completely from sunlight
  • , rain, wind erosion, freezing/thawing, flowing water and bioturbation. Indeed, other than a few colonies of bats near the cave entrances, both caves are essentially devoid of life. - (IfL)
  • 70let jeskyni Punkevni a Katerinské. (Seventy years of the Punkva cave and the Catherine cave)
  • History of discoveries and visitors frequency since 1910 in these well-known karst localities of European significance. The still greater changes of the microclimate in the caves, especially the occurence of the lampenflora, can be considered
  • People and caves in Madagascar
  • Cave ; Fauna ; Karst ; Malagasy Republic ; Man-environment relations ; Value system
  • The underground landscape of caves and associated karst features in Malagasy is little know to most people, even natives. Article is based on field work researching the relationships between people and caves in Madagascar. A. reviews some of common
  • Air temperature characteristics of the Postojna and Predjama cave systems
  • Air temperature ; Cave ; Karst ; Local climate ; Slovenia ; Temperature
  • The monitoring of air temperature takes place on five locations in two cave systems: three in Postojna cave system (Velika gora, side passage and Lepe jame) and two in Predjama cave system (Velika dvorana and Konjski hlev). Due to the inflow of air
  • currents from the unknown parts, the temperature difference between outside and cave temperature in the Postojna cave system is the highest in the side passage, especially in winter time. In the Predjama cave system, the air temperature in Velika dvorana
  • The influence of sea-level change and geologic structure on cave development in west-central Florida
  • Carbonate dissolution ; Carbonate rock ; Cave development ; Florida ; Karst ; Karst filling ; Sea level ; Tectonics ; United States ; Vertical movement
  • The formation of caves in a portion of Citrus County, Florida is controlled structurally by northwest-southeast-trending joints that formed in the Suwannee Limestone during the uplift of Ocala Arch in the Miocene Epoch. The caves developed in a zone
  • where saline water from the Gulf of Mexico and fresh water from the Ocala uplift mixed. Further uplift elevated the caves above the mixing zone. Erosion caused sections of caves passages to collapse and/or be filled with sediment. The caves are fossil
  • segments of a formerly larger, interconnected cave system.

  • Because of the development of tourist activities and the facilities in the show cave, the closed system of show cave has been changed into the complicated open system. The great number of the visitors and the landscape lights give great deal

  • Effects of tourist development on caves and karst
  • This paper reviews some of the most common problems in cave and karst parks. Evidence from research on karst parks and tourist caves shows a decline over time in the diversity biota and a general degradation of the park experience for more tourists
