        Virtual Cave

        Caves are cavities in Earth that typically form over thousands of years through natural mechanical and chemical processes. Most underground caves form as slightly acidic groundwater dissolves limestone rock. The result is a subterranean environment of caverns and, in some places, vast networks of smaller, interconnecting chambers. This interactive activity, adapted from The Virtual Cave, by Dave Bunnell, provides a detailed map of a solution cave system with links to images and descriptions of its many formations.
