As part of the Northern Ireland Science Festival 2019,  a Dye Tracing Experiment will be taking place in the Marble Arch Caves.

The world famous Marble Arch Caves provide a glimpse into a fascinating, natural underworld of rivers, winding passages and lofty chambers and are a key site within the wider UNESCO Global Geopark.

Join Geological Survey of Northern Ireland, Arup and Marble Arch Caves staff to hear about the hydrology of these fascinating caves while watching the Owenbrean River turn a luminous shade of green!  Dye tracing is a method used by hydrogeologists to track and trace the flow of underground streams and rivers.  Learn about the importance of dye tracing in the field of Geology and the various equipment used to carry out these exciting experiments.  Find out more about the tracing experiments that have been carried out in the wonderfully wet Counties Fermanagh and Cavan!
