Figure 4: A reconstruction of the geomorphological events before and
after the exposure of Liang Bua. (a) The cave as a subterranean chamber
(b) tectonic uplift and alluvial downcutting brought the valley floor
within close proximity to the chamber, (c) the Wae Racang wandered
across the valley (d) causing collapse, river invasion, and the
deposition of conglomerate deposits. (e) As the river continued its
downcutting momentum, modifications occurred to the cave form. Source:
