Scientists to make a 20 000 years climate forecast based on the data from the cave
The spelaeologist said that on February 12th yet another expedition to the Botovsky cave came to an end. 11 experts from Slovakia, Germany, the Great Britain and Russia took part in it. Their task was to investigate the new passages of the underground labyrinth and to collect samples of substances that can contain information about life on Earth in the earliest epochs. According to Osintsev, a reconstruction of the palaeoclimate will be made (i.e. a special map showing the climatic zones at a certain point in the history of the planet) based on this data, and it will form the basis for the forecast of climate changes on the planet.
