International symposium on "Cave Climate and Paleoclimate- Best Record of the Global Change- II" will be held on August 26 2005 during the International Congress of Speleology (ICS) in Greece, August 21-28 2005.


More information regarding the meeting can be find on the Congress web site: http://www.erasmus.gr/web/pages.asp?lang=2&page=2157

The symposium is primary focused on proxy records of past environmental changes and paleoclimate in speleothems and cave sediments. Symposium topics are:

1. Underground Climatology
2. Paleoclimatic Reconstruction from Karst Sediments
3. Speleothem records of Global Environmental Changes.
4. Ecosystems Impact on Karst Processes and Karst Records.
5. Astrophysical and Geophysical Applications of Speleothem Records
6 Infiltration of Porous Waters
7. Soil Impact on Karst Processes
8. Physical Chemistry of Karst Processes
9. Trace Geochemistry of Karst
10. Biogenic Mineralisation in Caves
11. Using of Cave Climate for Medical Therapy.
12. Methods for searching and location of caves

Short oral presentations can still be incorporated in the symposium program. One must be registered participant of the 14th ICS in order to give presentations at the Symposium (which is a part of the Congress).

Chairman of the Symposium: Dr. Yavor Y. Shopov, YYShopov@phys.uni-sofia.bg
