The Deflected Stalactites of Dan-Yr-Ogof: A Hypothesis
John P. Sevenair


The direction of deflected segments of 27 soda straw stalactites and columns was measured in the areas of Monk Hall in Dan-yr-Ogof, a cave in South Wales. The direction of deflection in many cases is parallel to the direction of the passage, suggesting air movement as a causative factor in the deflections.
