    Stable isotopes, which do not decay, are used to study modern karst including distinguishing sources of cave air, water, and contaminants and to study past climates and environments through interpretations of isotopes preserved in cave formations (speleothems) and sediments. Radioisotopes used in cave research include carbon in charcoal or. A cave or cavern is a natural void in the ground, specifically a space large enough for a human to enter. Caves often form by the weathering of rock and often extend deep underground. The word cave can also refer to much smaller openings such as sea caves, rock shelters, and grottos, though strictly speaking a cave is exogene, meaning it is deeper than its opening is wide, and .

The accessible, explored portion of the cave, sometimes referred to as Castleguard 1, is a long-abandoned drain. Studies of pollen found within cave sediments suggest that these cave passages were fully developed and dewatered at least 1M years before present. It is postulated that an underlying cave.

      Recent studies show that Homo naledi, an intriguing species of prehistoric humans, may have lived far more recently than previously believed. Paleoanthropologists (scientists who study human evolution) say that H. naledi, a primitive hominin (human ancestor) known from a collection of fossils discovered at the Rising Star cave system in South Africa, . The small Sirgenstein Cave, German: Sirgensteinhöhle is situated m (1, ft) above sea level inside the 20 m (66 ft) high Sirgenstein, a limestone rock. The cave sits 35 m ( ft) above the Ach River valley bottom in the central Swabian Jura, southern Germany. Archaeologist R. R. Schmidt excavated the site in during which he identified indices of prehistoric human Periods: Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age.

The book includes a range of cave sites, applicable techniques with in-depth reviews and several case studies to provide an excellent tool for those already involved in cave research and those interested in venturing into cave-sediment studies." (Mark Stephens, Journal of Sedimentary Research, ).

Studies of Cave Sediments is Studies of Cave Sediments book 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.

"Cave sediments studies pose multiple problems, both with the difficult access to many underground sites and also with the correlation of the cave record with surface events. The subject is often over-looked by hard-line surface investigators, but this book should help promote and develop this databank of geological history.
