Abstract

The formation of caves in a portion of Citrus County, Florida is controlled structurally by northwest-southeast-trending joints that formed in the Suwannee Limestone during the uplift of Ocala Arch in the Miocene Epoch. The caves developed in a zone where saline water from the Gulf of Mexico and fresh water from the Ocala uplift mixed. Further uplift elevated the caves above the mixing zone. Erosion caused sections of caves passages to collapse and/or be filled with sediment. The caves are fossil segments of a formerly larger, interconnected cave system
