Summary:The 21 papers in the volume derive, in part, from a 1983 symposium which was designed to bring together specialists working on modern marine and fresh-water cements, on their ancient analogues and their proposed relationship to burial conditions. Special emphasis is on deep burial cementation environments or regional cementation trends as related to near-surface or subsurface conditions, and on recognition of controls on carbonate cementation. The publication is divided into four sections, each with an editorial introduction: 1) geochemical and geological constraints on cement mineralogy, morphology and distribution through geological time; 2) early stable and metastable marine cements from diverse groups of environments and geological ages; 3) integrated geochemical and petrographic studies on regional distribution of burial cements and the transition from very early realms of cementation into deeper burial environments; 4) fresh-water cements, representing either the beginning or end of the carbonate diagenetic cycle. (All papers are abstracted separately in this issue of Mineralogical Abstracts). [R.A.H.]
