Abstract

Članek obravnava razvoj jam Adaouste in Champignons v francoski Provansi. Nove raziskave kažejo, da jami ni oblikovala meteorna voda, pač pa voda, ki je v arteških pogojih dotekala iz globin. V članku so obravnavane specifične jamske skalne oblike in sedimenti, ki podpirajo trditev o hipogenem razvoju jam.



Two dry caves from French Provence (Adaouste and Champignons caves) were until now considered as »normal« caves having evolved under meteoric water flow conditions. A new approach gives evidence of a hypogenic origin from deep water uprising under artesian conditions. Specific morphologies and sediments associated with this hydrology are discussed.
