Some stalagmate deployment strategies

  • An early stalagmate prototype with wired connection to datalogger in St. Michaels Cave, Gibraltar
  • Stalagmate Mk2b plus counting drips in Grotte de Rolande, France. The mounting technique here is a sand-filled pad. These calcify over time and form a solid base.

  • Where the drip detachment point varies as a function of discharge, a funnel can be used to collect water and re-emit drips that fall in one location
