Caves have long fascinated humankind, from prehistory to present-day tourism. Caves are also a subject for a range of scientific investigations, including cave biology, archaeology, paleoclimatology, geology, hydrology, and geomorphology. One of the benefits caves provide is their role as a repository of material that might not otherwise survive on the Earth's surface, due to caves' interiors being protected from physical erosion by nature of their underground locations. Studies of Cave Sediments focuses on this role as a repository, in particular on Quaternary (historic to 1.8 million years old) paleoclimate information preserved in cave sediments.
