Stages in hypergene transformation of sulfate-carbonate sequences (on example of breakdown piles of organ pipes of Kungur Ice Cave), 2010, Kadebskaya O. , Tchaikovskiy I.

The article reveals the influence of microclimate on the composition of deposits in Kungur Ice cave. Deposits of breakdown piles under “organ pipes” in different climatic zones were investigated. It was established that the material of breakdown piles of identical initial composition has different ways of transformation related to microclimate. In the cold zone negative temperatures “freeze” transformation processes of calcium and sulfate materials. The main process of mineral formation in this zone is cryogenic mineralization of sulfate and calcium water. The transitional zone (with temperatures between 0°C and 3°C) is distinguished by the presence of authigenic calcium breccias and various gypsum forms in breakdown piles. In the warm zone complete dissolution of gypsum and partial dissolution of carbonate debris occurs. Studying deposits bearing climatic markers can be used for identifying dominant paleoclimatic conditions in the cave.
