This thorough reference shows how stable isotopes can be applied to understanding the palaeoenvironment, with chapters on the interpretation of isotopes in water, tree rings, bones and teeth, lake sediments, speleothems and marine sediments. The book offers detailed advice on calibration, including a multi-proxy approach, using isotope signals from different materials or combined with other palaeoenvironmental techniques, to enhance the reliability of readings.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"This 10th volume in Springer's series 'Developments in Palaeoenvironmental Research's intended to show how stable isotopes can be applied to increase the understanding of palaeoenvironments. ... The book has an advanced level, but aims at both students and scientists who are interested in stable isotopes and environmental changes. The readers will find new methodologies and advances regarding isotope analysis for palaeoenvironmental research, and learn the basics on isotope fractionation and transport." (Ms. Yu Xiaoguo, Journal of Sedimentary Research, May, 2007)

"The editor of this volume notes that the intention of this book is to 'show how isotopes can be applied to understanding the paleoenvironment.' With that intension, several key issues should be addressed in each chapter. ... Overall, this book is a useful summary of recent paleo-isotope literature. ... The book focuses on water isotopes, and ... carbon isotopes. ... Isotopes in Palaeoenvironmental Research is aimed at both students and teachers, and as a summary of recent isotope literature it is ... useful to both." (Matt Fischer, EOS, Vol. 88 (7), February, 2007)
