This colorful and detailed PowerPoint and bundle covers the types of caverns, how a cavern is formed and cavern decorations called speleothems.
Types of caves include dissolution caverns caused by carbonic and sulfuric acid, ice caves, and lava or water caves called flow caves.
Cavern formation is common in a karst area and is due to an abundance of water in an area with soluble bedrock. So weathering, erosion and deposition inside a cave is covered.
A fun deposition feature in a cave is a speleothem or cave decoration. These include flowstones, stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, soda straws and columns.
Embedded videos also show scuba driving through underwater caverns and the Cave of Crystals.
