Carbonate tufas as archives of climate and sedimentary dynamic in volcanic settings, examples from Gran Canaria (Spain)
Three Holocene tufas from Gran Canaria volcanic island were studied with the aim of deciphering their sedimentary evolution through space and time. Las Temisas tufa (south‐eastern arid part of the
Upper Eocene travertine‐lacustrine carbonate in the Jianchuan basin, southeastern Tibetan Plateau: Reappraisal of its origin and implication for the monsoon climate
The Asian monsoon is one of the largest climatic systems in the world, but age of its onset has been estimated differently ranging from the late Eocene to the Quaternary. We investigated the
Early diagenetic features in Holocene travertine and tufa from a volcanic setting (Azuaje, Gran Canaria, Spain)
The diagenesis of travertine and tufa is rarely considered an issue due to the common difficulty of distinguishing what is primary from secondary, as in most of cases these diagenetic changes occur


Sedimentology and geochemistry of a human‐induced tufa deposit: Implications for palaeoclimatic research
Geochemical variations across laminated tufas and travertines may reflect the growth style of the carbonate build‐up and not just climate‐related changes. This work presents the study of a carbonate
Travertine: Distinctive depositional fabrics of carbonates from thermal spring systems
The terrestrial limestones forming at the emergence of thermal springs show a variety of unusual depositional facies. The specific lithological and petrological features of these deposits have few
Decoding tufa and travertine (fresh water carbonates) in the sedimentary record: The state of the art
Traditionally, fresh water carbonate research has focused on the sedimentology and palaeontology of ancient lacustrine deposits. Lithofacies in such low‐energy deposits are typically fine‐grained,
Relative influence of biotic and abiotic processes on travertine fabrics, Satono‐yu hot spring, Japan
The relative influences of biotic and abiotic processes on travertine fabrics are still not well understood, despite increasing interest in the last decade to better understand the record of ancient
Thickness and stable isotopic characteristics of modern seasonal climate-controlled sub-annual travertine laminas in a travertine-depositing stream at Baishuitai, SW China: implications for paleoclimate reconstruction
A continuous high-resolution (monthly) record of stable isotopes (δ13C and δ18O) in a well-laminated freshwater travertine deposited at Baishuitai, SW China from May 1998 to November 2001 was
