Cave formation formation of a cave, a cave is usually considered to be any naturally formed underground cavity big enough to enter. The term cave is usually used for horizontal passages and where vertical passages are found, the term pothole is more common. A cavern is another term for a cave, but is usually reserved for large chambers. The study of caves is speleology
Cave formations caves are formed by cracks being dissolved away by acidic water. Some caves then drain of that water, leaving air-filled passage. Most types of formations cannot really begin to grow until that time
Cave formations Cave formations are deposits on the ceiling, floor, and walls of a cave. They are called speleothems
Caves and karst karst is a distinctive landscape topography largely formed by the dissolving of carbonate bedrocks such as limestone, dolomite, or marble by water
Formation of cave cave formation begins when rainwater absorbs carbon dioxide as it falls through the atmosphere. Rain water must have carbon dioxide to become acidic. It must be acidic to chemically react to the limestone bedrock. Rainwater is absorbed by the soil into the ground
Geology of caves a cave is a natural opening in the ground extending beyond the zone of light and large enough to permit the entry of man. Occurring in a wide variety of rock types and caused by widely differing geological processes, caves range in size from single small rooms to interconnecting passages many miles long. The scientific study of caves is called speleology (from the Greek words spelaion for cave and logos for study)

Stalactites & stalagmites stalactites and stalagmites are cone-shaped formations which look a little like huge icicles of rock. They are found in caves. They are calcium deposits made by calcium-laden water dripping through the ceiling and onto the floor of the cave
