When teaching land, air and water include underground landscapes! Caves are formed by the forces of erosion. Carbonic acid in water dissolves rock and forms cave passages and unusual mineral formations. Caves cover 10% of the earth and occur in temperate, tropical, alpine and polar biomes. They are called Karst landscapes.
About 1/4th of the world's people depend on water supplied by karst areas. Human encroachment and pollution are affecting underground regions.
