The aim of this study is to examine the effect of Pleistocene glaciations on the speleogenesis of Štirovača Ice Cave, based on analyses of surface and cave morphology and of cave sediments, since it is well known that caves, and particularly clastic sediments in caves, contain abundant information on speleogenesis and on the conditions of karstification. The AA. assume that Štirovača Ice Cave represents an important archive in regard to tha glacial history of the Velebit Mt.
