Formation of the Cerkniščica and the flooding of Cerkniško polje
France uterič, Simona uterič - (32/2,2003)
Detailed study of the upper Cerknišč, ica's catchment and its sediments in Cerkniško polje revealed that the river turned this direction in the middle Würm, while in the more remote past, the input to Cerkniško polje (and to the caves) was completely karstic. Its alluvial fan cut the main vertical ponors, and deflected the main polje outflow westwards, indirectly into Planinsko polje. Consequently, recent hydrogeological conditions in Planinska jama are a direct consequence of development in Cerkniško polje.
