British Caving Association Releases Weather Guide for Cavers

December 26, 2011 / United Kingdom, Europe

Weather and its Effects on Caves: a Guide for CaversA publication to help cavers read the weather and better understand how it may affect caves, has recently been published by the British Caving Association.

Created to encourage more folks to be aware of the weather when planning their caving trips so that incidents resulting from rising water levels, a common occurrence in the U.K., are avoided.

On a Sunday this past November, heavy rains in the Yorkshire Dales led to the Clapham-based Cave Rescue Organisation receiving calls about six separate incidents of cavers being overdue.

While specifically tailored to caving in the U.K., there is a huge amount of information to be gained no matter where you may be located.

The PDF entitled, Weather and its Effects on Caves: a Guide for Cavers, can be downloaded at the Publications and Information section of the British Caving Association website.
