Using High-Resolution X-Ray Computed Tomography to Test the Preparation of Stalagmites for Paleo-Climate Reconstruction
Natasha Sekhon, Jay L. Banner, Dan O. Breecker, and Darrel M. Tremaine
Stalagmites being prepared for paleoclimate analysis should typically be slabbed along the central growth axis. This is an important first step because it allows for the highest resolution of sampling...
Stimulation of aquatic bacteria from Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, by sublethal concentrations of antibiotics
Thomas D. Byl, Petra K. Byl, Jacob Byl, and Rickard Toomey III
Many microorganisms secrete secondary metabolites with antibiotic properties; however, there is debate whether the secretions evolved as a means to gain a competitive edge or as a chemical signal to c...
Consequences of the global climate crisis on the cave beetle Darlingto-nea Kentuckensis Valentine based on thermal tolerance and dehydra-tion resistance
A.S. Apostolopoulos and T. Keith Philips

Ongoing genesis of a novel glaciovolcanic cave system in the crater of Mount St. Helens, Washington, USA
Linda Sobolewski, Christian Stenner, Charlotte Hüser, Tobias Berghaus, Eduardo Cartaya, and Andreas Pflitsch
Mount St. Helens, one of the highest-risk volcanoes in the Cascade Volcanic Arc, hosts a novel system of glaciovolcanic caves that has formed around the 2004?2008 lava dome. From 2014 to 2021 a multid...
Radon in dead-end caves in Europe
Milo Briestenský, Fabrizio Ambrosino, Iveta Smetanová, Lenka Thinová, Stanka ebela, Josef Stemberk, Lucia Pristaová, Concepción Pla, and David Benavente
We report the results of 3-years of Radon-222 monitoring in six show caves across Europe, selected with the feature of having only one, or no natural entrance, defined as dead-end caves. The caves are...
Development and persistence of hazardous atmospheres in a glaciovolcanic cave system—Mount Rainier, Washington, USA
Christian Stenner, Andreas Pflitsch, Lee J. Florea, Kathleen Graham, and Eduardo Cartaya
Glaciovolcanic cave systems, including fumarolic ice caves, can present variable atmospheric hazards. The twin summit craters of Mount Rainier, Washington, USA, host the largest fumarolic ice cave sys...
3D resistivity survey over mapped caves in eogenetic karst terrane, west-central Florida, USA
Charles W. McCrackin, Henok G. Kiflu, Sarah E. Kruse, Philip E. van Beynen, Jason S. Polk and Ben. Miller
This study assesses the capability and practical applications of quasi-3 Dimensional (3D) Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) for mapping air-filled conduits in eogenetic karst. A high-resolution ...
Geology and palaeoenvironment of Karin Tak Cave (lesser caucasus)
