Notes: This volume was conceived at a 'Tufas and Speleothems' workshop organized around 'research in progress' which was held in the Geography Department, University of Hull, UK in May 2008. It provides a cross-disciplinary platform that will stimulate further exchanges about new concepts, methodologies and interpretations associated with freshwater carbonates.
