Geomorphological mapping of granite caves
Download Full Text
The aim is to develop a mapping which represents the relief and the form (morphology) of granite caves and associated superficial structures. As such, it is a representation of the forms and microforms present in the volume that forms the cave (wall, floors and ceilings) and defines the underground landscape: Structural elements and forms; Gravitational forms; Fluvial and associated erosive forms; Glacial and periglacial forms; Aeolian forms; Depositional forms and speleothems; Weathering forms; Polygenic forms; Elements of anthropic and paleontological origins. All these forms are expressed graphically by combining two types of elements called forms stricto sensu, and recent and/or superficial deposits or formations. The geomorphological mapping of these caves is the main device for studying the forms and their genesis, evolution and structure.
