Abstract

Vertical, upward tapering, closed tubes (here termed röhrenkarren) have been observed in abundance in limestone exposed in the epiphreatic zone around 3 interconnected lakes, loughs Carra, Mask, and Corrib, in counties Galway and Mayo in western Ireland. Röhrenkarren from by condensation corrosion within air pockets trapped by seasonal floodwaters. Lake-specific differences in röhrenkarren morphometry provide a unique record of the long-term water chemistry at each site. The underlying mechanism has implications for other solid-liquid interfaces
