S'bout the same, innit?

Reckon it's just the British themselves that appear colder.

Shatter Cave:

Entrance Chamber Mean T = 9.84 ?C Max T = 10.38 ?C Min T = 9.58 ?C

Mid Section Mean T = 10.47 ?C Max T = 11.46 ?C Min T 10.11 ?C

Pillar Chamber Mean T = 10.38 ?C This was constant for the duration of the entire study, hence max and min T = 10.38 ?C

Uamh an Tartair:

Stream Chamber Mean T = 9.31 ?C Max T = 9.60 ?C Min T = 9.30 ?C

Inner Circuit Mean T = 8.56 ?C Max T = 9.80 ?C Min T = 8.30 ?C

Dry Section Mean T = 8.89 ?C Max T = 9.80 ?C Min T = 8.80 ?C

As you can see, mean temperatures are very slightly colder in Scotland however this cave does have many additional factors affecting the temperature. The stream for one is highly likely to be a regulator of temperature.

One day I'll get round to finishing this off as a paper.

I do have results I can't explain, for instance on two of the days the temperature dropped to 12.3c exactly at midnight but then climbed back to 12.6c, showing some type of natural cooling down and warming up cycle?? Maybe

Anyway Gina if you finish the paper, I would quite like to have a look at it.

Over here in the Canadian Rockies it's between -2 and +4 depending on elevation.
