Age and genesis of cave sediments in the Šošůvská Cave (Moravian Karst, Czech Republic)
Fluvial and infiltration cave sediments intercalated or capped by flowstone sediments were studied. The age of deposition was determined by comparison of remanent paleomagnetic record measured both in clastic cave deposits and flowstones with paleomagnetic scale. Five flowstone samples were dated by 230Th/234U method.
