UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

On occasion of the international meeting "Sea level changes into MIS 5: from observations to predictions" held in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) in April-2012, a 219 pages monograph about the Quaternary in Mallorca has been recently published. This book contains several karst-related chapters, two of them devoted to speleothems as recorders of sea level changes:

- Chapter 4: Phreatic Overgrowths on Speleothems (POS) from Mallorca, Spain: updating forty years of research (by Ginés et al.).

- Chapter 5: Late Quaternary sea-level history: a speleothem perspective (by Onac et al.).

The meeting was organized by the Universitat de les Illes Balears (Mallorca, Spain) and the University of South Florida (Tampa, USA), being sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

The whole volume is now available on-line in PDF format.
