Neue Forschungsergebnisse aus der Hirlatzh÷hle.
Abstract:
An overview over the last five years of exploration in the Hirlatz Cave (Dachstein, Austria) is given. Diving expeditions in the western parts led to the discovery of the enormous hall called Wadiland. At the far eastern end of the cave a technical climb gave way to 3 km of huge mainstream passages. The newest success was a dive in the Kessel Spring, which led to a connection with the Hirlatz Cave. The actual length is 91.8 km, the depth is 1070 m. [Hirlatzh÷hle (1546/7)]
