Dear All,

Last Day for the abstract submission!!!!

Please, if interested, send the abstract before 12 pm (GMT).

Sincerely

Valter, Christiane and Aurel,


CR11.20
Ice deposits in caves: formation, evolution and climate-environment
assessment

Convener: Valter Maggi
Co-Conveners: Aurel Persoiu, Christiane Grebe


Ice cave deposits, located inside karstic systems, represent a new
challenge for glaciologists, speleologists and (paleo-)climatologists
and   other related sciences. The formation and evolution of ice in
caves   follows the forcing of the external environment, both as a
source of  water  and snow, and the local climates which induces a
specific cave  climate,  favorable for the accumulation and preservation
of ice. Located  also at  low altitudes, in areas where both alpine
glaciers and ice caps  are  missing, perennial ice deposits in caves
could be important archives  of  climatic and environmental
informations. In Austria, Slovak Republic,   Romania, Russia and other
countries, these ice caves, as show caves,   represent also an important
economic resource for the local community.  The  aim of this session is
to bring together research results, new  approaches  and ideas that will
help shaping the future development of ice  caves  research and to
discuss the multidisciplinary potential of ice  cave  research with
interested scientists. Papers on ice genesis and  dynamics,  ice caves
climate, paleoclimatic reconstructions using ice in  caves as  sources
of data, as well as ice caves management are welcomed.


Valter Maggi, Aurel Persoiu and Christiane Grebe
