Thats a classy survey Mr Beck, especially as most or all of it was done alone and by the sound of the blog in challenging conditions. Thanks for taking the time to draw it up and share it with us. I have said before how it brings context to your commentary and the profile does just that. As for recommendations for whats next I can't offer any advice about the survey (or the project). Go where your will takes you!
The survey so far.Any recommendations regarding what next would be appreciated. Far from versed with this side of things.https://simonbeck.blogspot.com/2019/05/mossdale-sessions-survey.html
My suggestion of what to do next is to put your survey data (distance, compass, clino) on the cave registry data repository (or find a geek willing to do it for you). This will mean that if and when the cave gets a resurvey and the exploration here continues people can easily check how accurate it all is. Particularly if there was the possibility of digging a connection to other known passage, knowledge of survey accuracy can be crucial. It also means that people can look at relationships to structural geological trends, for example, helping to advance the science.In terms of making your survey drawings easier to use in future, you could digitise the survey drawings using a vector graphics package such as inkscape (which is free) similar to what Si and Di did for the long kin west extensions last year. This way it saves any future resurveyor from redoing all your drawing work. Adding your survey centreline to the drawing would probably be useful to help any future explorers interpret your drawings more clearly.Is the scale on both plan and profile 1sq/metre?
Hope you get everything you want from the discoveries, these latest reports are the last time I read of anything that interested me on UKCaving for a long time. So if you do anything else make sure you write about it!
Great videoAre there any solid walls down there?
That passage going out is a lovely section of passage...your video picks up its features nicely. The dig area is confusing for sure and loose
