A fresh perspective on Swedish fracture caves

A. M. Hall, M. Krabbendam

Research output: Working paperPreprint

Abstract / Description of output

Hundreds of caves have been located and explored by generations of cavers
in lowland Sweden. Often the caves sit within fields of huge, rotated and
moved blocks where the rock has the appearance of having been burst or blasted apart. These are quite unlike the limestone solution caves found in many parts of the world because, unusually, many Swedish caves are developed in fractured, ancient gneisses and granites. Geologists have long puzzled over the origins of these intriguing caves and the surrounding rock rubble
