Welcome to the TSS Home Page
The Texas Speleological Survey (TSS) is a non-profit corporation established in
1961 to collect, organize, and maintain information on Texas caves and karst. We
make that information generally available for scientific, educational, and
conservation purposes, and to support safe and responsible cave exploration. We
are affiliated with the Texas Memorial Museum, the Texas Speleological
Association, and the National Speleological Society.
This web site is provided to first give an overview about
the caves and karst of Texas, their scientific and educational value, and
how you can learn more information about Texas caves, cave exploration,
and the TSS. The second purpose of this web site is to provide you a
convenient means of submitting information on Texas caves. This can be for
either previously unreported caves or new information about known caves,
and can be done through our on-line cave and karst feature report form.
The value of the TSS database is directly related to how much information
is contributed to the files. We collect as much as we can, but can’t do it
all without your help.
Feel free to look around our web site. We hope you find it
both useful and educational. If you have questions, suggestions, or would
like to participate in TSS activities, please
