That Rillenkarren is (german.) solution flutes that occur only in places where fresh unspent precipitation is active and end where the water attains too high a content of lime or where water is added. their length increases with slope, temperature, and rainfall; eventually reaching 1 m and more in the tropics, up to 50 cm, and as an exception, 100 cm in the alps. their width extends from 1 to 3 cm. they lie together in rows with no space between, with sharp intermediary ridges of no more than 1 cm in height. they increase at all freely exposed peaks and ridges where fresh rainwater alone is at work. the grooves gradually flatten out to a smooth surface. their theory of origin is unknown. [3]. synonyms: (german.) kannelierungen; solution flutes; and firstkarren.?

Lascaux 1988, une grotte orne, un fac simile et... 400 000 visiteurs par an, 1989, Vouve J. , Brunet J. , Vidal P.
Lascaux 1988, a hill, an ornated cave, a fac-simile and... 400,000 tourists every year - We have wished to give in this note some results of researches realised between 1963 and 1988 (geological study, indirect discovery of cave development, hydrogeological and climatological subterranean environments). These works were undertaken in order to save the paintings, which are suffering from the attacks of bacteria and chemical deposits. The recent human aggression is dependent since 1983 on the use of the ground of the hill after the opening of the fac-simile. This human aggression has shown us new dangers and has obliged us to study a different workmanship to protect the surficial and underground environments around the cave.
