Speleothems (mineral deposits that formed in caves) are currentlygiving us some of the most exciting insights into environments andclimates during the Pleistocene ice ages and the subsequentHolocene rise of civilizations. The book applies system science toQuaternary environments in a new and rigorous way and givesholistic explanations the relations between the properties ofspeleothems and the climatic and cave setting in which they arefound. It is designed as the ideal companion to someoneembarking on speleothem research and, since the underlying scienceis very broad, it will also be invaluable to a wide variety ofothers. Students and professional scientists interested incarbonate rocks, karst hydrogeology, climatology, aqueousgeochemistry, carbonate geochemistry and the calibration ofclimatic proxies will find up-to-date reviews of these topicshere. The book will also be valuable to Quaternary scientistswho, up to now, have lacked a thorough overview of these importantarchives.

Ian Fairchild was originally a geologist, then morespecifically a sedimentologist, morphing into a physical geographerwith leanings to environmental chemistry, before putting moregeology back in the mix. Hence, he is now Professor ofGeosystems at the University of Birmingham, UK, researching both onmodern environments and interpreting those in deep time, withcarbonates, waters and climates as linking themes.
Andy Baker was trained as a physical geographer, andworked at the interface of geology, physical geography, andenvironmental engineering. He is currently a Professor atthe University of New South Wales and a chief investigator inAustralia's National Centre for Groundwater Research andTraining. - Newsletter
