The Moestroff Cave by Francis Massen (editor)
No sunburns, ozone and solar light...
.... here is a book on underground climate.
It is the final point of a research project(*) done in Luxembourg's largest maze cave... a horrifying labyrinth of nearly 4 km of muddy galleries, extremely narrow crawlways... and a healthy population of spiders!
(*) under the umbrella of the Centre de Recherche Public Centre Universitaire Luxembourg (CRPCU),.one of the four university-level research institutes of Luxembourg. Project leader was Francis Massen.
For over 4 years, a lot of automatic working instruments monitored different climatological parameters, as well as Radon and CO2 concentration. From the overhelming mass of data emerges a clear picture of the cave air dynamics, the short term and seasonal variations of air flow and gaz concentrations. The final report extends the scope of the research project by contributions on history, geology, hydology and instrumentation techniques from seven authors.

|The final report on the PHYMOES
research project, which investigated the underground
climate of a maze cave through continuous and automatic
measurements for nearly four years. This book presents an
original interdisciplinary approach to the exploration of
a large maze cave, covering:
