Geophysical investigations in the El‐Wad Cave, MT. Carmel, Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Measurements of the thickness of the sediment fill in the el‐Wad Cave, Mt. Carmel, Israel were carried out using seismic refraction methods. The cave is one of the famous Mt. Carmel Caves, where finds of Mousterian to Natufian prehistoric cultures had been encountered. The survey discovered a series of karstic pits in several chambers in the cave, with good correlation between the dimension of the chambers and the thickness of the sediment fill. The deepest pit was found in the inner part of the cave, where the oldest archaeological material could be expected.
