The Beka-Ocizla Cave System: Karstological Railway Planning by Martin Knez, Metka Petrič, Tadej Slabe, Stanka Šebela

By Martin Knez, Metka Petrič, Tadej Slabe, Stanka Šebela

A proposed railway at the fifth ecu Railway hall (Venice-Kiev) among the northern Adriatic ports of Koper (Slovenia) and Trieste (Italy) and the internal of Slovenia required vast karstological reviews and making plans. This booklet includes the information received from those reports in addition to extra details at the neighborhood karst floor and underground, the karst hydrogeology, and the explicit caves of the Beka-Ocizla cave process.

Transient Phenomena in Electrical Power Systems. Problems and Illustrations

Temporary Phenomena in electricity platforms: difficulties and Illustrations bargains with the means of calculating different brief phenomena in electrical energy structures. Concrete examples are given to teach the nature of the brief methods, and the order of significance is derived in a few normal circumstances.

Compared with related surface-dwelling species, subterranean animals are characterized by the absence or reduction of a series of features, particularly eyes and pigment (see Fig. 26). Subterranean animals are also characterized by elaboration of extraoptic sensory structures as well as other morphological, ecological, physiological, and behavioural adaptations. This represents a remarkable convergence among subterranean animals, the morphological aspects of which are called troglomorphy. 1 The Sampling Procedure and Results In the study area, the fauna from the infiltration zone was sampled (Fig.

There is a considerable likelihood that during the construction of the railway tunnel in this area unknown passages will be encountered. Other types of research were also conducted in the boreholes, such as geological mapping, inventorying of the geomechanical properties of rocks, tracer experiments, monitoring of the level and chemical properties of the water and recording in the boreholes and karst cavities. The core from the T 1-7 borehole The T 1-7 borehole was drilled to a depth of 350 m (Fig.

18). We have made many new findings on the formation and development of the karst surface, the epikarst, and the cavernosity of the aquifer. 1 Karstological Supervision During the Construction The removal of soil and vegetation from the karst surface and the earthmoving works on a larger scale during the digging of roadcuts and tunnels, revealed surface, epikarst and underground karst phenomena. Our mission is to study these phenomena as a part of natural heritage, to advise methods for their preservation and, of course, acquaint the builders with new findings.
