Reply to Comment of Extremely Low Frequency Emissions in Bat Caves, 1996, Koemel, W. C.

Extremely Low Frequency Radio Emissions in Bat Caves, 1996, Koemel, Walton C.
Bats produce very low frequency (VLF) radio pulses and display magnetic qualities. Extremely low frequency (ELF) radio emissions were observed inside bat caves. Ground return currents from 60 Hz AC power systems run through the ceiling of some bat caves.

Comment of Extremely Low Frequency Emissions in Bat Caves, 1996, Withrow, S.
Systematic speleological exploration has been taking place in Belize since about 1960. Such exploration tends to be characterized by long term involvement by a small number of individuals, principally from the USA, but with significant contributions from other countries, especially the UK. An estimated total of 250 km of passage have now been mapped, ranging from low dry grovels to large, active river passage, and two of the largest underground chambers in the world. The author assigns caves to eight geographical areas and describes the history of recent exploration in each. Future exploration problems and priorities are also discussed.

Cave Temperatures at Naracoorte Caves, 2002, Sanderson Ken , Bourne Steven
Temperatures in four different caves at Naracoorte were logged for periods of up to two years, during 1998-2001. In Bat Cave temperatures near ground level were 19.0-21.1C in the maternity chamber, and 10.3-15.6C near the entrance. In Victoria Fossil Cave temperatures near the fossil chamber were 16.9-18.3C. In Blanche Cave and the outer chamber of Robertson Cave temperatures were 9.4-15.0C, with temperatures in the inner chamber of Robertson Cave 14.2-15.0C. Cave chambers with little air flow had seasonally stable temperatures, and those with high air flow showed seasonal temperature variations of 5-6C.

Biology and ecology of Bat Cave, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona, 2014, Pape, R. B.

A study of the biology and ecology of Bat Cave, Grand Canyon National Park, was conducted during a series of four expeditions to the cave between 1994 and 2001. A total of 27 taxa, including 5 vertebrate and 22 macro-invertebrate species, were identified as elements of the ecology of the cave. Bat Cave is the type locality for Eschatomoxys pholeter Thomas and Pape (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and an undescribed genus of tineid moth, both of which were discovered during this study. Bat Cave has the most species-rich macro-invertebrate ecology currently known in a cave in the park
