2022

April

Event type: Project

Location: Sardinia, Italy

Contact: Andrea Marassich, andreamarassich@me.com

Event website: #MapTheGulf - Phreatic project Sardinia 2022 

Date: April 18, 2022 to September 30, 2022

Description: #MapTheGulf - Phreatic project Sardinia 2022 

This year we are organising a cave survey project in Sardinia; it will be run under the flag of Phreatic organisation and we managed to get support and sponsorship by GUE and DAN Europe.
Also, Italian Speleological Society and multiple private companies sponsored the initiative. It is part of the International Year of Karst and Caves initiatives.

The key concept is simple; Caves in the area of operations are amazing but, with very limited exceptions, they are not properly or completely mapped. We want to carry out a general survey/cartography effort in the main springs of the Gulf of Orosei. We will use modern tools like MNemo and Suex DRIVe and Sinapsi, trying to combine the data into a single software and creating an output to be represented on QGis.
There will be multiple sessions, each of them focused on one specific cave, but with the chance to visit also other systems. 
As COVID-19 has decided to stay with us a little longer we do not plan sessions with more than three diving teams.

Some of the local caves are ideal for Cave1 divers due to the benign conditions and the shallow depths; other sites are challenging side mount passages or relatively deep for open circuit and requiring rebreathers and DPVs. In both cases, the goal is to survey and build a core team able to interface throughout the sessions.

Each project session will incorporate a first day with a general briefing and a survey workshop to standardise protocols inside the teams. The next five days will be dedicated to diving operations and data management in the afternoon/evening. 
It is both an opportunity to learn survey procedures with new tools and have fun in a team of goal oriented divers.
