Abstract

Of course they do! But it is rarely that caves are purely made of air-filled. A variety of sediments accumulates in caves and can be preserved more or less intact for long periods of time (Palmer, 2007). Presence of sand and gravel and clay deposits, mineralization, faults and fractures, perched water in caves are the rules rather than the exception. The purpose of the study is to show that air-filled cavities do not always cause high resistivity anomalies due to the complex subsurface conditions, and they are sometimes are not separable as a cave anomaly from the surrounding rocks.
