Condensation as a microclimate process: measurement, numerical simulation and prediction in the Glowworm Cave, New Zealand


Condensation as a microclimate process: measurement, numerical simulation and prediction in the Glowworm Cave, New Zealand



International Journal of Climatology 23(5): 557-575



ISSN/ISBN: 0899-8418

DOI: 10.1002/joc.898

The study examines condensation as a microclimate process. It focuses first on finding a reliable method for measuring condensation and then on testing a numerical model for predicting condensation rates. The study site is the Glowworm Cave, a heavily used tourist cave in New Zealand. Preservation of the cave and its management as a sustainable tourist resource are high priorities. Here, as in other caves, condensation in carbon dioxide enriched air can lead to corrosion of calcite features.
