Descent (251), August 2016

Extending Krypton

Another discovery has been made in Peak Cavern, high above known passages.

Hypogenic Danby

Hypogenic caves – those formed by rising water rather than surface flow – are uncommon, but now another has been documented in the UK.

Gaping Gill: the Survey

A new survey of Gaping Gill has been released and is published here alongside the story of its creation.

Neuland

Lechuguilla Cave in New Mexico is one of those rare systems: beautiful, unusual, keeping secrets that science seeks out, concealing hidden passages awaiting discovery. The most recent of these is Neuland, a major, gypsum-covered extension.

Do Nothing by Halves

Ray Mansfield’s time with us touched many, his friends numerous and his influence widely felt. We pay tribute to this calm, generous caver.

Cave Science

The Flows Beneath Malham

A major experiment, the largest of its kind ever run in the UK, has investigated the waters of Malham Cove.

Shadowplay

The tragic history of Mossdale Caverns has not dissuaded cavers from visiting its extremities, albeit quietly in the shadows.

Prophetic Fiction

The first edition of Descent set a milestone in 1969 – we might have moved forward ever since, but it is never too late to look back on an article that is both amusing and (just a little) prophetic.
