Cave and Karst Prospecting within Seram Island (Maluku Province), Indonesia - 23 May-22 June 2012
Here we present the list and position of the caves found during our prospection in Seram Island. The coordinates are expressed in UTM 52M; the precision of the cave entrance depends on GPS signal at the moment of acquisition 8 ; the GPS allowed us to reach a precision in between 5 to 50 meters depending on land cover. Were also realized two maps representing Karst feature and distribution in Seram Island: A general overview, adaptation of different geological papers and another map zoomed in the North West sector, where 12 underground rivers were localized based on Dutch geological maps and satellite information. Only Sapalewa River was reached during this prospection. Based on North-West Seram geological map by Rutten we calculate the area covered by Triassic (670km2), by the interbedded karst (66km2) and by the Koral karst (148km2).
