The team of scientists at the Czech Academy of Sciences used a variety of geophysical technologies to evaluate the Hranice Abyss from above such as gravitational force measurement, resistivity exploration and application of seismic techniques. This helps them sketch out a schematic map of the cave, revealing it to be at least 1 km deep, IFL Science reported on September 2. The new research is published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface.
Hranice Abyss located near the town of Hranice, district Prerov, Czech Republic, is said to be the deepest freshwater cave on the planet. Year
