Caves: Magnificent Underground Chambers
They are damp, they are dark and deep. They are also very hollow to. Some people think that they are creepy. They are used by a lot of people because they explore and walk in them. If you like to explore or if you like to exercise I suggest you go for a walk or explore in a cave. If you want you can go to see a cave and see things you have never seen things before. I know a famous cave it is in Lebanon and it is called Jieta. It is very nice it has lots of nice spelothems that naturally made. They look like underground chambers. Caves are underground passage ways. Often with uneven floors.
Step one of forming a cave, When water mixes with carbon dioxide which will create carbon acid. Carbon acid will dissolve anything in its way. Step two, Carbon acid dissolves lime stone which is called weathering. Lime stone is easier to dissolve. Step three water will run away into cracks and hit a flat surface but if that flat surface is lime stone the water will cause a hole, the hole will keep getting bigger. That is how caves are formed. Caves are landforms that are created by water, wind, and weathering and erosion. Water that drops and tumbles from cracks can make a cave deeper because of its pressure. Caves are also formed by weathering because of the water bashes on the side of a cliff which causes a hole. Second wind hits the hole which causes it to get deeper. Third rain drops cause cracks until they turn the hole into a cave. Did you know that creatures that live in caves lay eggs and build nests in caves? Some caves have speleothems which look like spikes either hanging from the ceiling or coming out of the ground. Some cave passage ways are not always dissolved by water but sometimes by regular water. Carbon acid can also dissolve limestone. The creatures that live in caves mostly live in the twilight zone. Some animals, mostly bears use caves for shelter. Do you know that bats live in caves because they are nocturnal, which means that they sleep in the morning and wake up at night. So a cave or a cavern is a natural underground space large enough for a human to enter. Some people suggest that the term cave should only apply to natural cavities some part in which total darkness; however, in popular usage, the term includes smaller spaces like sea caves, rock shelter, and grottos. But the problem is that they take a while to form. Erosion can also cause caves to form. Erosion is when an object is moved. You might ask how erosion can help form a cave. Well erosion can help form caves because erosion can move rocks that are in caves.
The most famous cave is the Crystal cave. The Crystal Cave is the biggest and nicest one of all.
Caves are used by many people. Such as the French use their caves to store their wine because the temperature in a cave stays the same, it does not change. Also people store nuclear waste because it is far away from civilization. Caves are also used for getting bacteria because people who make cheese need bacteria for taste; Blue cheese is a type of cheese that needs bacteria for taste.
Lots of organisms live in caves. These are the organisms are bats, scorpions, spiders, snakes, and Bears also other animals. These organisms live in caves for shelter.

In the future caves will become larger and larger over time. because weathering will still cause rain drops to bash on to cliff sides. Erosion will still move rocks. Also sea waves will keep bashing onto cliff sides. ``
