Abstract

The paper presents results of last studies in karst area of Kleśnica valley in the Sudetes (SW Poland), known for spectacular discoveries of new cave passages in 2012–2014. We used airborne laser scanning data (LiDAR based DTM 1×1 m) and geophysical measurements (ground penetrating radar and 2-dimensional electrical resistivity tomography), combined with detailed under- ground mapping, representing a new multi-facet approach focused on the examination of karst voids distribution in Kleśnica valley. The confrontation and comparison of spatial data from different measurement techniques allowed us to determine the range of crystalline limestones and distribution of karst voids, including the voids previously unknown and not explored by speleologists.
