  • A cave (or cavern) is a naturally occurring area or space under the surface of the Earth. Caves are often a system of interconnected passageways created by the weathering of rock.
  • Recreational or scientific exploration of a cave system is called caving, potholing or spelunking.
  • The scientific study of caves and their surrounding environments is called Speleology and the formation and development of caves called speleogenesis.
  • The maximum depth a cave system can reach underground before the pressure of overlying rocks becomes too great is estimated to be about 3,000 m (9,800 ft).
  • Caves can be formed by many geological processes including chemical actions, erosion from water, tectonic and volcanic forces, microorganisms, and pressure.
