Southern blind cave fish video

Long-time Carroll Cave explorer DJ Hall put together a 5 minute YouTube video regarding the southern blind cave fish. All of the footage was shot in Carroll Cave. About half of it was taken underwater and shows cave fish in action. There are also some very nice scenes of rimstone dam (the Angel Pool formation) and soda straws.

We got the shaft!

From Rick Hines, president of the Carroll Cave Conservancy:

On December 28, 2018, the Carroll Cave Conservancy became the owner of six acres of land around the back door entrance, a 40-foot easement from the back door entrance to the road, and cave rights under 479 acres! We purchased three acres for $6,000 but the remainder was donated by Chris Danuser. The purchase was funded by a donation of $6,000 by caver Ron Jaeger. Part of the agreement requires us to construct a fence around our six acres which will cost around $3,000 of which Danuser is paying $1,500. read more

2011 Hydrology Project report

I was roaming through some old files today and discovered the full-year data from 2011 for the stream flow project.  This data was not posted to the web site.  In the interest of completeness I am adding it.

The ZIP file linked below contains three kinds of files.  The .hobo files are the raw data exactly as it comes off the loggers.  In order to use these files you must have a copy of Hoboware Pro software. 

The TXT files are plain text in a format that can be imported to a spreadsheet.  The PDF files contain graphs of the data.
