Data of CO2 measurements are reported. The relationships of the CO2 levels to the conditions of cave ventilation, the type of cave sediment and moisture content, the climatic zone and seasonal changes of CO2 are discussed. Air pollution of a show cave is illustrated by observations of CO2 levels from Yaolin cave, Zhejiang province. (RB)

Data on additional 33 well exploited show caves are presented. There are over 200 show caves in China, including 41 major show caves as of 1986 (see: Communications 9th Intern. Congress of Speleology Vol.2: 225-228). (RB).

Tenglongdong cave system and its development value. Carsologica Sinica 1987 - issue 4. pp 63-67.
The Tenglong Cave Cave system is divided into two layers: the upper layer is called the dry cave, which is the former Qingjiang Fuliu section; the lower layer is called the Shuidong, which is today's Qingjiang Fuliu section. The total length of the cave is 32km, and the total area of the bottom plate is 1.2 million square meters. It develops in a huge thick continuous layer of pure carbonate rock formation (T1j); located in the throat of the Lichuan Basin, the Qingjiang River water is excreted by the cave, and the strong erosion effect makes the cave wall continue to collapse and expand. Due to the large-scale intermittent strong uplift of the new tectonic movement, the multi-layer structure of this cave is caused. Various morphological chemical sediments are developed in the cave, and the research and development of the cave is of far-reaching practical significance for the development of tourism, summer heat, recuperation, fungus cultivation, and even the promotion of cultural exchanges at home and abroad.
