What is Devils Hole?

Devils Hole is a tectonic cave developed in the discharge zone of a regional aquifer in south-central Nevada. The walls of this predominantly subaqueous cavern are coated with dense vein calcite. The stable isotopic content of the calcite provides a 500,000-year record of variations in temperature and other paleoclimatic parameters.
