Une marmite remarquable du trou qui Souffle (Vercors, France), 1987, Lismonde, B.
A REMARKABLE GIANT POT IN "TROU QUI SOUFFLE " (VERCORS, FRANCE) - In the cave of " Trou qui Souffle " (Maudre, Vercors), the SGCAF team of Grenoble has discovered a remarkable giant pot (5.4 m deep and 1.2 m diameter). His wall is covered with scallops, and thus, it is possible to determine the velocity field in the giant pot by means of the Curls law.

Mesure de la propagation dune perturbation de pression au Trou qui Souffle (Maudre, Isre), 1993, Lismonde, B.
The Trou qui Souffle (Breathing Pot) is a cave in Vercors. There are three entrances, two of which are known and are situated 2 km apart. With one entrance rapidly obstructed, the effect upon the velocity of wind was measured at the other. The findings were a speed of about 100 m/s

La crue du 18 mai 1994 au Trou qui Souffle (Vercors, France), 1995, Lismonde B. , Les_splos_grenoblois_du_c. A. F.
The syncline of Autrans--Maudre is located in Vercors, an alpine region of France. This karstic basin is drained by the resurgence of Goule Noire, located in the gorge of the Bourne River. The surface of this region is 80 km2 and the flow of Goule Noire in low water is 500 1/s. The stage of limestone is urgonian and senonian. The most important cave is the Trou qui Souffle (blowing cave). This cave is 40km long and 450m deep. Down, sumps stop the explorations. The water volume stocked in the phreatic passages between the cave and the spring is about 1,000,000 m3. The Trou qui Souffle has two great fossil galleries, the Franois gallery and the gallery of Easter. The water way of phreatic gallery is actually unknown. In may 1994, a very high rain of 155 mm in a day caused a great flooding. In the cave, the piezometric level went up 100 m over the normal level; 14km of passages are drowned. All the Franois fossil gallery are fill with water. On the contrary, the Gallery of Easter is dry remained. The analysis of this exceptio-nal phenomenon (of 50 years recurren-ce) shows that a very little passage exists between Trou qui Souffle and Goule Noire. The equivalent duct diameter is about 1,5 m. The Trou qui Souffle stocked a water volume of about 300 000 m3. So the karstic system atte-nuates the crest of floods and regula-rizes the flow of resurgence.

La scheresse 2003 et les mesures de temprature au Trou qui Souffle de Maudre : rle du flux gothermique, 2005, Lismonde, Baudouin
The dryness of 2003 and the temperature measurements in the Trou qui Souffle (Maudre, France): role of the geothermal flux - A deep passage in the Trou qui Souffle (Vercors, France) was equipped with a Luirographe that allows to record continuously the variations in both water level and temperature. The results show that the dryness of 2003 induced an air temperature rise of 1C. In autumn and winter 2003-2004, several floods were recorded which were coupled with a decrease in temperature. These measurements allowed to evidence thermal heterogenities within the massif. We attribute these to the geothermal flux. A theoretical model (published in a previous article) provides an interpretation of the observed phenomena: the geothermal flux is focalised, thus the change of temperature in that deep level is very rapid.
