Ice Caves synthesizes the latest research on ice caves from around the world, bringing to light important information that was heretofore buried in various reports, journals, and archives largely outside the public view. Ice caves have become an increasingly important target for the scientific community in the past decade, as the paleoclimatic information they host offers invaluable information about both present-day and past climate conditions. Ice caves are caves that host perennial ice accumulations and are the least studied members of the cryosphere. They occur in places where peculiar cave morphology and climatic conditions combine to allow for ice to form and persist in otherwise adverse parts of the planet. The book is an informative reference for scientists interested in ice cave studies, climate scientists, geographers, glaciologists, microbiologists, and permafrost and karst scientists.

  • Covers various aspects of ice occurrence in caves, including cave climate, ice genesis and dynamics, and cave fauna
  • Features an overview of the paleoclimatic significance of ice caves
  • Includes over 100 color images of ice caves around the world

Biografie (woord)

He has to date published some 110 papers and chapters in peer-refereed journals and books. Another 53 papers are published in conference proceedings. He has contributed to two papers in Nature in the fields of geochronology, archaeology and paleoclimate i.e. Barkal et al. 2003 & Moberg et. al. 2005) and one in Science (Henshilwood et al 2011). He has made 4 regional karst maps, and have written 23 technical reports and compendia. 8 different computer programs for specialized data processing in structural geology, geochronology, geochemistry and cave survey techniques. These programs are used in current research and graduate teaching. > 94 printed short abstracts of conference and poster presentations. With respect to popularizing science, he has published 40 articles in caving club and tourist organization periodicals, plus an (unknown) number of newspaper interviews and feature articles, made 4 museum exhibits and had the main role cast in a 52 min. documentary video on climatic research from caves. A second video documentary was shot in February 2008 with National Geographic concerning the formation of giant gypsum crystals at the Naica mines, Mexico.
