Purpose The purpose of this research project was to find out how each of these rocks break down with the addition of the water cycle as well as temperature changes. My parents graciously took me to Penn’s cave, noticing the karst topography, I was fascinating how things can come apart then come back together to be created. It was fascinating to see the creation process and the pressure from the precipitation and the climate it outs pressure onto the rocks in our environment with taking 80 rocks and exposed them to multiple cycles of freezing and thawing with the addition of water in the freezing.
