This website, from the University of Toronto, provides a discussion of the instability that gives rise to ripples on the surface of icicles. A description of this instability is followed by multiple videos of icicles forming under a variety of conditions. Comparisons are made to ripples on stalactites, and the movements of the ripples are also presented.
