Mission 1 - Wayward Water! – Explore the Hydrosphere
Great job! The water in the aquifer is stored in holes inside the rock (pores). Our sensors indicate that a nearby cavern is forming, where water is passing through. Let's check it out before we leave this area.
So, water is dissolving some of the rock in this area because it is acidic, and is now found inside the water! That mineral then under the right conditions may form new minerals, forming the many beautiful features of this cavern! Water and rocks interact often, helping make the Earth a dynamic place!
Let's follow the cave stream out of the side of the hill! Terravator!
