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.
