In recent times, curiosity in Neoproterozoic glaciations has grown as their pivotal function in Earth process evolution has turn into more and more transparent. one of many major objectives of the IGCP venture quantity 512 was once to supply a synthesis of newly on hand info on Neoproterozoic successions around the globe related in structure to Hambrey & Harlands (1981) Earths pre Pleistocene Glacial checklist. This Memoir for this reason includes a sequence of review chapters via site-specific chapters. The evaluation chapters hide key issues together with the background of study on Neoproterozoic glaciations, identity of glacial deposits, chemostratigraphic suggestions and datasets, palaeomagnetism, biostratigraphy, geochronology and weather modelling. the positioning particular chapters for 60 successions all over the world comprise stories of the heritage of analysis on those rocks and updated syntheses of the structural framework, tectonic atmosphere, palaeomagnetic and geochronological constraints, actual, organic, and chemical stratigraphy, and outlines of the glaciogenic and linked strata, together with monetary deposits.
