Focusing on glaciation and speleogenesis in the region of New York and New England, this book serves as an example of a karst region that has experienced large-scale continental glaciation. It reviews the literature on the controls of glaciation on karst development, exploring examples from the marbles of the Adirondacks, New England and eastern New York, the Ordovician strata of northern New York and the Siluro-Devonian strata of central New York. Each of these areas is examined in detail, demonstrating the evolution of thought on glaciated karst through case studies of individual caves as well as larger cave systems. Additionally, this book describes the geology and glaciation, the evolution of karst landscapes from pre-glacial times to the present and human interaction with the caves in the region.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book by Cooper and Mylroie (both, Mississippi State Univ.) emphasizes the effects of glaciation on the formation of caves (speleogenesis), but it also addresses, to a much lesser extent, the destruction of caves by glaciers, because such destruction cannot be ignored when considering glaciation and karst. ... The accessible writing style and excellent illustrations and photos make this an enjoyable book to read and a worthwhile acquisition. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (M. S. Field, Choice, Vol. 53 (3), November, 2015)
