Beschreibung:
"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 sedimentology. Studies of Cave Sediments is the first comprehensive volume on cave sediments. It provides case-studies from around the world, gives guidance on appropriate applications of techniques, and their limitations, synthesizes methods that can be used to decipher complex deposits, and includes chemical deposits (speleothems) as well as clastic sediments. TOC:1. Lithofacies and transport of clastic sediments in karstic aquifers- 2. Sediment and sediment-associated contaminant transport through karst- 3. Palaeomagnetic analysis of sediments on the buchan caves, southeastern Australia, provides a pre-late pleistocene date for landscape and climate evolution- 4. Paleomagnetic analysis of a long-term sediment trap, kooken cave, huntingdon county, pennsylvania, usa- 5. Provenance of suspended sediment discharged from a karst aquifer determined by clay mineralogy- 6. Reading Virginia's paleoclimate from the geochemistry and sedimentology of clastic cave sediments- 7. Glacially-influenced sediment cycles in the lime creek karst, eagle county, colorado- 8. Cave sediments and denuded caverns in the laki ravnik, classical karst of Slovenia- 9. Paleoclimate records from speleothems in limestone caves- 10. Uranium-series dating of speleothems: current techniques, limits, & applications- 11. Paleoclimate information from speleothems: the present as a guide to the past- 12. Influence of depositional environment on devil's hole calcite morphology and petrology- 13. Speleothems from the high-alpine spannagel cave, zillertal alps (Austria)- 14. Isotope stage 11, the "super-interglacial", from a north Norwegian speleothem- 15. Establishing a speleothem chronology for southwestern Oregon - climatic controls and growth modelling - 16. Silicates in carbonate speleothems, guadalupe mountains, New Mexico, U.S.A- 17. Reliquiae diluvianae alter: last interglacial flood deposits in the caves of the West Indies."
