The Coastal Sulfuric Acid Cave System of Santa Cesarea Terme (Southern Italy)

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

Santa Cesarea Terme in Salento is the only area in which hypogenic caves have beenrecognized in the Apulia region. In this spa area, the rising of sulfidic thermal waters thatmix with both recent fresh infiltration waters and coastal salt water has formed four activesulfuric acid speleogenesis (SAS) caves. These caves are characterized by the typical set ofsulfuric acid meso- and micromorphologies, and also by the presence of both gypsum andnative sulfur. In all caves, biofilms are visible in the sulfidic thermal waters and on the cavewalls.
