    Global warming is a present reality, destined to progress inexorably. The underground environments appear as a complex interface between the atmosphere-lithosphere and the hydrosphere and, in general, the underground temperatures tend to have oscillations linked to the morphological and geological characteristics of the cavity. In Italy, ISTAT data relating to meteo-climatic statistics for the years from 1971 to 2016 show a generalized upward trend thermal. To evaluate any means for the conservation of the present ecosystems and the possible effects deriving from the processes of climate change, we monitored climatic and environmental parameters inside the Grotta a Male (a fossil sinkhole near L'Aquila, Italy, latitude: 42°26′00.5″ North; longitude: 13 °28′26.42″ East), to identify signs of hypogeal climate change, in relation to the current thermal..
