Caption: Cave curtain formation. Cave explorer examining a curtain formation caused by the deposition of calcium carbonate minerals from underground water. The minerals were dissolved from the rocks through which the water flowed to reach this cave, and were then deposited as the water dripped down from the cave ceiling. This is 'Convenience' cave, in Derbyshire, UK.
