A 4-day workshop held in Gibraltar was convened to bring together for the first time the international researchers who are actively involved in monitoring caves around the world.

The aim of this meeting was to share experience and discuss technical issues of cave monitoring in order to improve understanding of the local processes affecting speleothem growth and the ways that climate is recorded.

The workshop was attended by 30 participants from Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Romania, and the United States, ranging from PhD students to university professors.
