A richly illustrated introduction to the science of caves (speleology) as shown through the exploration and mapping of deep caves (some flooded, some frozen, some vast, some fabulously decorated) in British Columbia’s beautiful basement – and elsewhere. We’ll talk about how caves are mapped and the techniques used for ascending and descending vertiginous shafts.
