James Cave Epikarst Monitoring Drip Data
MetadataShow full item record
James Cave is located in Pulaski County, Virginia and formed within the Cambro-Ordovician Conococheague formation. Continuous (10 minute interval) monitoring of cave drip rate and precipitation was conducted from late summer 2007 to winter 2013 using HOBO® tipping bucket rain gauges and multi-station data loggers. At the subsurface sites, drips were collected using tarps with areas of 2.43m2, 3.07m2, and 3.51m2 for MS1, MS2, and MS3, respectively. Precipitation was measured at the surface near the cave entrance.
