In the latter half of the twentieth century, lakes and lacustrine deposit systems were recognized as outstanding examples of depositional systems, serving as models with global applications; many may serve as harbingers of environmental change. The chapters explore environmental variability, sedimentary processes, fire history, the impact of lakes on crustal flexure, and abrupt climate events in arid regions, often through the application of new tools and proxies.
