Field work in the Dolomites

The focus of this field season was to explore caves in the Sennes and Fosses region and to assess their potential for palaeoclimate research of the area. Several caves were visited and documented, and some of them (re)surveyed.

Our team (Gabriella Koltai and Christoph Spötl) was joined for the first week by Andreas Treyer, a caver from South Tyrol, and by Yuri Dublyansky. During the second week Andrea Borsato arrived from Newcastle (Australia) and carried out hydrochemical analyses on active drip sites.

This work is supported by the Autonomous Province of Bozen, the Naturpark Fanes-Sennes-Prags and the Parco Naturale delle Dolomiti d'Ampezzo.
