About this book

Comprehensive volume providing case studies from around the world. It gives guidance on appropriate applications of techniques and outlines methods for deciphering complex deposits, including chemical deposits (speleothems).

Aus den Rezensionen zur 2. Auflage: "! ein erstklassiges Lehrbuch und Nachschlagewerk ! Ein ausfuhrlicher Index beschliesst das Buch. Die weiterfuhrenden Literaturangaben finden sich am Ende jedes Buchkapitels. Hiermit haben die Verf. ein interessantes, ausgezeichnetes Buch vorgelegt, das sich fast ausschliesslich mit den Hohlenfullungen beschaftigt. Das Buch wendet sich sowohl und zunachst an die Hohlenforscher ! wie auch an die in der Forschung tatigen Geowissenschaftler und die Studierenden dieser Fachrichtungen. Dem Werk ist eine weite Verbreitung zu wunschen und sicher, ist es ! auf dem 'Feld der Hohlensedimente' ein Meilenstein." (Stephan Marks, in: Mitteilungen des Verbandes der deutschen Hohlen- und Karstforscher e.V. Munchen, 2009, Vol. 55, Issue 2)
