Caption: Travertine dam. River cascading over a travertine dam at Plitvice National Park, Croatia. Travertine is a mineral precipitated from streams super- saturated with bicarbonates. The environmental conditions leading to the formation of such dams are quite specific. It is aided by the prescence of mosses, algae and bacteria. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Photographed in October.
