That halocline is a locally steep salinity gradient along the interface between fresh groundwater and saline ground-water, such as is found at the base of the freshwater lens common beneath many limestone islands in the tropics. water mixing and microbial activity are important influences on dissolution along the halocline, as shown for instance in blue holes [9].?

EVIDENCE OF PALAEOSTRUCTURES RELATED TO FREEZING THROUGH SOIL MICROMORPHOLOGY IN LAZARET CAVE, NICE (FRANCE), 1995,

In the Lazaret cave (Nice), the study of soil micromorphology has revealed palaeostructures with a microaggregate facies as well as a round or flat morphology. Observations were performed in the middle of stratigraphic layer C of the archaeological filling which probably belongs to isotopic stage 6. The specific characteristics of these palaeostructures are compared to those observed in certain recent sites which underwent a cold and wet climate. From this comparison, it can be inferred that layer C might have been formed under similar climatic conditions

Micromorphology of cave sediments, 2013,

Cave sediments are commonly fine grained and lack macroscopic sedimentary structures. Only a detailed analysis of the micromorphological characteristics permits an accurate determination of the sedimentary dynamics of such cave deposits. Microscopic sorting, grading, clast orientation, lamination, intercalation, deformation structures, and porosity are some of the features used to identify microfacies such as lacustrine, slack water, debris flow, slumping, sheet wash, hyperconcentrated flows, and solifluction. In combination with micromorphological data derived from post-depositional diagenetic trend sand anthropogenic evidence, it is possible to reconstruct the evolution of a cave, and the climatic history and landscape volution of the area.
