Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is the first book to deal specifically with cave sediments and so is an important resource for people conducting research in caves, e.g. geoscientists, speleologists and archaeologists. The book includes a range of cave sites, applicable techniques with in-depth reviews and several case studies to provide an excellent tool for those already involved in cave research and those interested in venturing into cave-sediment studies."

(Mark Stephens, Journal of Sedimentary Research, Vol 75, 2005)

"The dual nature of the subject and the wide range of topics and analytical approaches might give the superficial impression of a heterogeneous group of papers cobbled together into a book. On the contrary, these topics are well integrated into a fairly coherent picture. Even the local studies provide wide-ranging concepts."

(Arthur N. Palmer, and Margaret v. Palmer, Journal of Cave and Karst Sediments, Vol 67, no. 2, p. 140-141)

"This book aims to provide a comprehensive treatment of cave deposits, with a particular focus on the palaeoclimate record they hold. ... covering key aspects of both clastic sediments and precipitates from many karst regions around the globe. ... this book serves well as an account of the state-of-art in the study of cave sediments and their value in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction. ... it is likely to be of great interest to higher-level undergraduates, postgraduates and academics ... ." (Stefan H. Doerr, The Holocene, Issue 15, 2005)

"Cave sediments studies pose multiple problems, both with the difficult access to many underground sites and also with the correlation of the cave record with surface events ... . The subject is often over-looked by hard-line surface investigators, but this book should help promote and develop this databank of geological history. ... This book is attractively presented ... . Its contents should be compulsory reading for anyone researching Quaternary chronology and palaeo-environments. The volume should also be read by a much wider audience ... ." (Tony Waltham, Geological Magazine, Vol. 124 (4), 2005)
