The cave ( Pinyin D ng o Xu Cave, English That is,) in the soil, in the cliffs or dig out in the hills in the space, especially to the surface of the natural cave basement. Usually made of water Erosion Or, wind The formation and weathering of microorganisms and other external.
The cave is the most popular classification method according to the scale of points. A caver performance is through caving length or depth data and to reflect the.
Water soluble and limestone is a prerequisite for the formation of karst cave. Water soluble rock dissolution for heavy calcium carbonate, year after year, tunnel space increases, when the weight of the top, can not afford to collapse, collapse only changes the shape of space does not change the size of the space. Collapse with water is taken out, the water continued to karst bedrock, so the hole was formed. Following the principle of chemical reaction is the formation of the cave, but it is reversible.

Cave Historical records

The cave in people's minds, has always been a mysterious region, Europeans think that the cave is the hell of a channel, the Tibetans believe that cave is a place of evil, never easily enter. The film describes the hidden treasure hole and guarded by a python, and various additional on the top of the mysterious spell, raised people on the cave yearning, also had a fear.
The history of cave scientific paper records and very long history. As early as in the "Shan Ching" ( The spring and autumn war In the first time) and pharmacology work "Shen Nong's herbal classic" (Western Han Dynasty) in a karst cave and its chemical sediment records. Many caves have visitors, in the exploration before the Sui and Tang Dynasties, leaving a large number of stone inscription, and other cultural relics. Geographer, traveler Xu Xiake (1587--1641) personally explored more than 300 South karst caves, became a pioneer in the world cave exploration and study. In modern times, the research Chinese karst caves and cave archaeological culture by Beijing Zhoukoudian as the representative of the great ape hole. With the development of national economic construction and the development of Sino foreign joint cave exploration activities, a number of detection is very difficult to detect the giant cave system And made a number of new results. Karst cave more and more are found and detection, was developed.
According to preliminary statistics, the tunnel length is now a survey of more than 500 meters of karst cave in more than 400. As of 2002 and May, China measured more than 3000 meters in length of cave 108; was developed with the tour of the cave about 3000 of the total; has an important archaeological cave nearly 100. The largest known cave system in Guizhou Suiyang Shuanghe cave group, now probing the total length of more than and 117 km; second Guangxi Leye The Bailang underground river cave system has detected a total length of 75 kilometers of the cave channel again; Hubei Province Lichuan TENGLONGDONG county, Tunnel Dry hole and a total length of 52.8 km; Guizhou province Xiuwen Bailongdong cave system, Zhenyuan The river cave, Suiyang Tunnel length shuanghedong and multi bin holes are more than 20 kilometers. There are many caves in the giant cave hall, the world known plane area more than 30000 square meters of single Hall for a total of 24, Chinese has 7, Guizhou will River Cave System in the seedling hall area of 116 thousand square meters, ranking second in the world. From a single volume hall, Guangxi Leye County The Red Rose Hall large volume groove in the cave is 7 million cubic meters, ranking second in the world.

Cave Cave environment

Cave climate phenomenon itself, is mainly regulated by water and air convection. The cave is actually a relatively constant temperature environment. Have a certain impact on the cave's average temperature elevation, but generally at 11-15 DEG C. This is the origin of the cave "cool".
The air flow hole, in addition to the regulation of climate, the growth of stalactites cave is also a great impact, so when the cave cave exploration or development, not easy to get through the tunnel, it is often a consequence of destruction.
Into the hole often when entering a narrow channel, will feel very anxious in the wind, a walk immediately in smooth water. This is to say that the "chimney effect", it is because of the different height (or fracture), caused by natural convection of air inside and outside the tunnel with different temperature phenomenon. The "chimney effect" shows a strong seasonal variation, moving from the bottom to the top of hot air in winter, summer, spring and autumn, the opposite; when the pressure is close to the inside and outside of the tunnel, with the change of outside and the temperature, wind the daily changes in different time.
There is a high negative ion in the cave, self purification function can stimulate the human respiratory tract, improve immunity, there will be a feeling of excitement which is why enter the cave.
The hole will have a trace of radioactive elements, pure carbonate rock is lower than other radioactive. But the long-term work and stay in the cave, still have to pay attention to the cumulative time of stay. This is the reason why the development and utilization of the cave to the monitoring of radioactivity.
The change of comprehensive human physiological causes, in the following four aspects:
1 biological rhythm -- no change of season, hole damage time factors, the "biological clock" was destroyed, and the cycle is elongated.
2 changes in Climate Chaos -- not in the temperature and humidity in the cave, long time, may cause chaos.
3 feel chaotic -- a long time in the static and dark environment, not accustomed to hearing and vision stimulation, cause
To cause central nervous system dysfunction, nervousness, and hallucinations.
4 cold -- can lead to tension and super tight protection mechanism in the human body, produce the slow and fast response to stress.

Cave Cave classification

Cave In the underground space

The original cave is the underground space and surrounding rock is formed at the same time. In general, Never mind and groundwater. The main tunnel (commonly known as the volcano lava cave) and travertine cave. The formation of the volcano cave is caused by the flow of magma inside and outside temperature, the outside cooling fast, will form a hard shell, and the central continue to maintain the high temperature magma flow, have been previously formed hole.
The cave is the first secondary formation of rock, rock and then formed by various forces of the cave. The dissolution of the formation of the cave, karst caves and semi karst cave. Karst cave is very common in China, and is now the investigation and research of the main object of cave science. Semi karst caves such as Sichuan stretches of conglomerate Karst cave. The formation of mechanical erosion caves, such as the waves of sea wind erosion into the cave, cave in arid area, soil erosion in the caves.

Cave According to the space form

(is to) into horizontal, inclined, vertical and integrated four.
According to the size of cave classification is divided into four levels......
Small: less than 50 meters in length, vertical depth of less than 50 meters
Medium length: 50 meters ~500 meters, vertical depth of 50 meters ~200 meters
Large length: 500~5000 meters, vertical depth of 200~1000 meters
Giant: more than 50000 meters in length, vertical depth greater than 1000 meters

Cave According to the hydrological conditions

Dry hole
Tunnel tunnel is divided into water inlet hole and hole.


CaCO3+H2O+CO2, Ca (HCO3) (dissolved rock cave forming)
Ca (HCO3), CaCO3 (+H2O+CO2 = lower precipitation formation of stalactites)
Karst cave is also subject to the process of formation, development and decline. The formation of sinkhole collapse, is a manifestation of the development of the cave.
The distribution characteristics of China
Carbonate cave
from Karst formation
Widely distributed in Chinese, the largest number of the largest.
Gypsum cave
Due to its low mechanical strength, is also the causes of dissolution.
The distribution of more in gypsum karst area, but little cave.
Conglomerate hole
The soluble gravel or cementation and dissolution.
Rarely in the China number, generally not the length.
Xuanwu cave
Magma erupted, due to the formation of differences in the surface and bottom of magma cooling rate.
Chinese are distributed in the northeast and Yunnan modern volcano area.
Sand hole
The formation of sandstone weathering intensity difference.
Granite cave
In general by the tectonic movement or block movement and the formation of.

Cave The characteristics of the cave

Bacon rock: This is one of the world's most beautiful cave scene, cave in rock texture resembling Bacon pork, it is formed in the inclined roof is saturated with water after calcite hardens into thin rock body. Sometimes, the water is rich in calcite containing iron oxide or organic substances, so that the "Bacon rock" with yellow, brown and orange. With the drop of organic matter and iron oxide concentration, residual multilayer structure, resembling Bacon pork.
Ice: ice is water ice, rather than the structure of rock, very spectacular, with a variety of forms. Sometimes the glaciers formed a hollow cave, Alaska California menden Holzer cave is formed beneath glacial ice.
Stone branch: like other caves unique structure, stone branch is rich in calcite (calcium carbonate stable form) water formation of speleothems, they are usually from the roof or wall extends down the stalactite.
Cave pearls: cave pearl formed in a shallow pool, pool water saturated calcite, when carbon dioxide escaping from the drop, and some precipitated calcite residue in the bottom of the pool, its appearance is like a pearl, a diameter of about 20 cm, although these substances initially have an irregular shape, but eventually formed sphere, because a sphere structure provides a minimum the surface area of maximum deposition.
Rock: rock in different cellular cellular precipitation or evaporation formation of speleothems, it is rock erosion or dissolution traces formed by the decomposition of appearance, has a honeycomb structure. Black mountain in South Dakota, United States there is a typical honeycomb rock.
Stone stone frame: the frame is flat and smooth stone platform in the cave, looks very much like a desktop with a glass coffee table, it is usually formed in a cave pool calcite deposition process, these precipitates are usually flat, thin form stone structure. With more calcite precipitation, stone frame only under the water until the growth, with the rock together, eventually forming a platform structure.
Frost Cave: cave is usually made of frosted opal, gypsum, and water, which is the most representative of aragonite frost. Although the majority of frost is white, but sometimes also has a variety of colors. It has very unique characteristics of acicular aragonite, they can grow into "Bush frost", with irregular aragonite frost chemistry, this is because the aragonite cave in low pressure and low temperature condition is not stable.
Flower: Flower cave cave is composed of gypsum and other substances, when water and carbon dioxide and sulfur together, after seeping from the cave wall, accompanied by water evaporation, the final residual gypsum material. But the structure is different from the stalactites, cave flower from the starting point of penetration of "growth", and to curve outward, looks like the delicate petals. At present, the United States of Kentucky, there are many Mammoth Cave cave flower.
The balloon: a balloon hole hole is little-known, scientists speculate that the cave "balloon" is due to high pressure liquid formed from the moonmilk cave wall leakage, typically, moonmilk is on top of rock or rock cave formation of water droplets in layers of sedimentary rocks, which is composed of calcite or a water magnesite white fine crystals. When the humid environment, moonmilk like cream cheese with high plasticity, exude from liquid swelled like a balloon.
Crystal Cave: Mexico Naica ore has the huge gypsum crystal, the wonderful structure that scientists were surprised. Usually, the cave temperature is low, but the ore magma above the hole in the Naica, maintained at a temperature of 44 degrees Celsius, humidity reaches 100%. In 2000, they found a "Crystal Cave" here, hundreds of thousands of years, water rich in calcium sulfate in the cave, when the temperature reached 58 degrees Celsius, these minerals will be transformed into a transparent crystal.

Cave Most of the cave

The world's longest cave system: the Mammoth Cave is 556849 meters long
The world's deepest hole: Georgia KruberaCave 1710 meters deep
China the longest cave system: Guizhou Shuanghe tunnel 100044 meters long is now ranked sixteenth in the world
Chinese the deepest hole: Chongqing Wulong gas pit depth of 920 meters
Chinese largest cave Hall: Guizhou grid will River seedling Hall of 116000 square meters

Cave Cave protection

For potholers or lovers should do, positive, spontaneous consciousness to promote the protection and implementation of protection. In the cave, we in addition to garbage and photos, should not take any of the items. Don't break any growth, do not kill cave animal, do not pollute the water cave. People for a long time, should take the single queue. In foreign countries, it is the size of special containers, leave out.
The development of the cave, should be in line with the principle of scientific planning, scientific development. Practice has proved that in the absence of a comprehensive survey, surveying and planning situation, to development, lack of protective measures, will bring serious consequences to the resources for developers, cave resources will not have long business vitality.
