How were the caves of Uluru formed?
Erosion is the primary means by which the caves of Uluru have been formed. Both water and wind - the latter in particular - have contributed to the hollowing out of caves at the base of Uluru.
Uluru was formed by eroding sand
Yes. The sides of Uluru are literally ridden with caves, both large and small, some little more than fissures. None of the caves extend any depth into the Rock, so Uluru is not a place for spelunkers. However, many of the caves are decorated with ancient indigenous art, and various caves were allocated for specific purposes by the indigenous people when they still lived a traditional lifestyle.
The caves of Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, contain ancient Aboriginal paintings.
Yes Uluru (Ayers Rock) has many springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings.
Uluru is ancient. It is as old as the continent of Australia itself. Geologists have not been able to determine its age. Uluru is considered a sacred site by the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara people, and ancient paintings can be seen in caves, cliff overhangs and other surfaces of Uluru.
Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara, the Aboriginal people of the area. It has many springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings.
Scientists have not come to any agreement regarding either the age of Uluru, or how it was formed.
Caves are formed by water.
they are formed when animals in the caves are trying to get to shelter and the limestone in the caves melt and eventually form lime-stones caves
No. Most caves are formed out of limestone making that false.
The rock of Uluru is a sandstone, itself derived from an earlier granite landmass. Uluru is notable for the lack of jointing in the rock - hence little screes due to erosion. In reality, scientists are mystified as to how Uluru/Ayers Rock formed. This particular monolith or, more correctly, inselberg does not follow any conforming patterns of formation. There are plenty of theories, but none that satisfies the majority of the scientific community. Similarly, it… Read More
Caves are formed by both chemical and mechanical weathering. Most caves are formed by dissolution of limestone, however, which is a form of chemical weathering.
It isn't! Caves do not form rock at all! Caves in limestoneare formed by the removal by dissolution of the rock by acidic ground-water.
Aborigines people consider Uluru to be a sacred place. They believe that the rock was formed during Dreamtime by their ancestral beings.
Wookies live in trees, not caves.
The Maquoketa caves in Iowa were formed through years of natural non-glacial erosion.
Uluru was not built. It is a naturally occurring feature.Scientists do not know for certain how Uluru was formed, and opinions vary. However, the position of the rock strata and the way the rock crystals lie strongly indicate that Uluru was the result of a massive and sudden flood event.
waves & wind JK
Uluru does not have to be any particular size. It is a natural landform, and this is how it is formed - large, bald and rising imposingly above the surrounding plain.
I'm not 100% certain which caves you mean by "caves in the grand canyon," so I can't answer it for sure, but based on the geology of the region they're most likely either wind caves (very shallow caves in the side of a cliff) or solution caves (can be fairly deep caves formed in, usually, limestone or dolomite).
Karst caves, and it is the majority of caves; formed by acidic ground-water dissolving the limestone.
Other way round! Water and/or air are in caves.:-) Most of the world's caves have formed / are forming in limestone.
In reality, scientists are mystified as to how Uluru/Ayers Rock formed. This particular monolith or, more correctly, inselberg does not follow any conforming patterns of formation. There are plenty of theories, but none that satisfies the majority of the scientific community. One theory is that Uluru is the result of millions of years of erosion from a huge mountain range in Central Australia, he remnants of which can be seen in the Petermann Ranges to… Read More
Uluru is a large rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territoty. Kata Tjua and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara and Yankunytjatjara, the Aboriginal people of the area. It has many springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings
Calcium and carbon form limestone. limestone caves are formed by water and other materials eroding the cliff to form a cave.
They - or it? - are normal karst caves, formed in limestone by its dissolution by water. I believe they still carry a stream: if so they are still forming.
Uluru, or Ayers Rock, is a completely natural monolith, formed over thousands of years by nature, not man. Incidentally, it is the world's second largest monolith, not the largest.
wind caves are formed by wind blowing fine sand particles.
It is called Erosin
A natural arch is formed through processes of erosion. Weaknesses in cliffs are gradually widened by coastal eroison, until over time they form caves. These caves also get eroded, and if they have formed on a headland then an arch will be formed.
They didn't. Most caves are formed in limestone, by rain-water slightly acidified by abosrbing atmospheric carbon-dioxide slowly dissolving the rock.
caves are more commonly formed in some types of rock
Some caves, those in limestone formations especially, are formed by chemical weathering.
Precisely that: caves! A cave is underground by definition: a natural void in rock, usually limestone.
Caves are formed by rainwater dissolving away limestone or sandstone.
Erosion is formed by weathering which then forms caves, meandering rivers, valleys and waterfalls.
Stacks are formed by headlands turning into caves, caves turning into arches and arches turning into stacks. Stacks can then even turn into stumps. This all happens from erosion and weathering.
Collapsed caves, believe it or not. A hollow formed by collapse into a cave is a shake-hole or sink-hole.
Caves are formed in many ways but mostly by chemical weathering of the surface rock. Tectonic plates on the other hand are huge slabs of rock that form the Earth's crust. Caves are not formed by tectonic plates, think of caves as tiny boreholes in the very surface of a tectonic plate. I agree
caves, and cliffs
puting yo big black dick in it.
well to be nice i am not smart
Ocean caves are formed from most commonly formed by calcium and magnesium, usually sedimentary rocks. They can also be made of granite.
