Studies of cave sediments : physical and chemical records of paleoclimate

Author: Ira D Sasowsky; John Mylroie
Publisher: Dordrecht ; [London] : Springer, 2007.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Caves serve as unique repositories for geologic, biologic, and anthropologic information. The sediments within these natural cavities are incredibly diverse. They include secondary minerals such as calcite and gypsum, which occur in sundry forms, as well as allogenic and autogenic clasts. This book is for any geoscience researcher or student with interests in climate change, paleohydrology, karst geology, and  Read more...
