Soqotra Karst Project (Yemen), 2000 -- 2004, BHB Vol. 20   

Price:  $22.00 

69 pages + foldable maps, colour photo tables, numerous maps & surveys; Berlin 2006. Peter De Geest (ed.). Report of six Belgian speleological expeditions to the island of Soqotra, which so far have yielded 22.7 km of passages from 28 caves -- including Giniba Cave at 7.5 km. With many cave maps and detailed chapters on the investigations on biospeleology, archaeology and spelaothem dating. In English language with abstracts in French, German, Dutch as well as in Arabic. This volume presents a summary of the Soqotra Karst Project (SKP) -- an ongoing multidisciplinary speleological investigation, focused on the island of Soqotra (Yemen). Palaeoclimate, biospeleological, archaeological and sustainable development studies are being conducted by Belgian experts in close co-operation with several Yemeni and other international project partners. This report is based on the recent "Soqotra Karst Project 2000-2004" (SKP 2005) publication that has been primarily released in Dutch and covers the six expeditions made by the SKP to Soqotra Island through Deceuber 2004. Since the first visits in 2000, a total of 28 caves have been mapped yielding 22,707 m of passageway. The longest cave explored so far is Giniba Cave at 7.5 km, while the deepest is Pit Cave (-145 m). Twelve more caves were visited but not surveyed, however three of them were sketched. Some of the caves provide significant freshwater resources. The scientific achievements with regard to spelaothem dating are briefly explained, together with the biospeleological discoveries and intriguing archaeological remains found underground.
