AbstractThe definition, development and application of monitoring procedures for caves are currently in demand in Brazil. The need for environmental licensing processes and effective environmental control actions has been increasing since the beginning of this century due to the intensification of economic activities. This work discusses the development of a method of photographic and sediment monitoring and the application of this method in an iron ore cave. This cave is located inside an industrial area currently under development by a mining company. This situation demands effective and specific environmental control measures. The method's simplicity, effectiveness and multidisciplinary approach indicate that it has potential for use in future works to define management decisions and protection measures for iron formation caves and other examples of karst heritage.
