We prove a logarithmic stability estimate for a parabolic inverse problem concerning the localization of unknown cavities in a thermic conducting medium $\Omega $ in ${\mathbb{R}}^{n}$, $n\ge 2$, from a single pair of boundary measurements of temperature and thermal flux.

Keywords: parabolic equations, strong unique continuation, stability, inverse problems
