Cave documentation: Survey and photography
« p: 29.01.2015 15:03 »
"Cave exploration is a wonderful and exciting experience. Tales of exploration are perfect for telling around a fire or for writing in books. But no description of caves can really convey the physicality of what was explored. Emotions can be retold, but this is not what scientists aim to report on. The best ways for documenting cave exploration are mapping and photography. The combination of these techniques gives a geographic significance to the exploration and delivers a great deal of useful information for science. Explored caves always have to be carefully mapped and photographs are taken of survey stations and of the most scientifically interesting (or just beautiful) places and corners, from large rooms to tiny and fragile speleothems."

"When I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
W.H. Auden, "In Praise of Limestone"
