Dall’1 al 4 e dal 5 al 7 giugno 2011
Swedish Speleological Society (SSF) and the Pseudokarst Commission (Commission du Pseudokarst) of the UIS are organizing the 2nd International Symposium on Granite Caves in 2011. This is the very first time Sweden arrange an UISÂ´ conference.
The Fennoscandian Shield consists of crystalline rocks. Sweden is known for its granite caves, and there are thousands of them recorded (SSF). The various types of caves are described by SjÃ¶berg (1994). In most cases, the caves seem to have a paleoseismic origin (MÃ¶rner, 2003).
Symposium venue and dates
The Symposium will be held at LÃ¶vhagenÂ´s hostel, close to NynÃ¤shamn located 50 km south of Stockholm. The program will include 2 days of paper presentations and discussions, and 2 days of field excursions. We are also planning a scenic boat trip in the archipelago. Final program and dates in the 2nd Circular.
