qGeologic Monitoring is a practical, nontechnical guide for land managers, educators, and the public that synthesizes representative methods for monitoring short-term and long-term change in geologic features and landscapes. A prestigious group of subject-matter experts has carefully selected methods for monitoring sand dunes, caves and karst, rivers, geothermal features, glaciers, nearshore marine features, beaches and marshes, paleontological resources, permafrost, seismic activity, slope movements, and volcanic features and processes. Each chapter has an overview of the resource; summarizes features that could be monitored; describes methods for monitoring each feature ranging from low-cost, low-technology methods (that could be used for school groups) to higher cost, detailed monitoring methods requiring a high level of expertise; and presents one or more targeted case studies.q--Publisher's description.SUMMARY OF CAVE VITAL SIGNS AND MONITORING METHODS laicepS esitrepxE sdohtem dna sngis latiV equipment Cost* Personnel Labor intensitya€n Cave Meteorology Spot measurements with generally available hand-held instruments Volunteer No $ Individual/ ... thgilf-fo-emiT Cave Drip and Pool Water Manual monitoring with handheld instrumentation Volunteer Yes $ Individual Medium-highanbsp;...
