Ice deposits in caves: formation, evolution and climate-environment assessment (at the EGU-2011)

Dates: From 03 Apr, 2011 till 08 Apr, 2011
Location: Vienna, Austria

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 information. 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.
