The International Limnogeology Congress brings together a wide variety of academic, government, and industry participants from around the world. The sharing of ideas throughout the congress via keynotes, presentations, and discussions covers a broad range of topics and has resulted in the publication of several special issues.

The 6th International Limnogeology Congress (ILIC6) of the International Association of Limnogeology (IAL) was held in Reno, Nevada, USA 15–19 June, 2015. The successful congress brought together a wide variety of academic, government, and industry participants from 20 countries and six continents. The highpoint of the four-day meeting were eight keynote addresses highlighting cutting-edge research in paleolimnology and limnogeology. These addresses were often the focal point of discussions throughout the congress. Among the topics covered in the more than 140 poster presentations included the use of biological proxies to identify paleoenvironmental change due to natural variability and human impact, the evolution of mineral formation in saline lakes, sedimentation deposition processes in Mesoproterozoic lakes, the role of groundwater in lacustrine hydrology, and organic and inorganic contaminant histories in modern lakes. This special issue concentrates on Holocene lakes depositional processes, and is the one of two special issues.

The 6th International Limnogeology Congress (ILIC6) of the International Association of Limnogeology (IAL) was held in Reno, Nevada, USA in 15–19 June 2015. The four day meeting was highlighted by eight keynote addresses highlighting cutting-edge research in limnology, paleolimnology, and limnogeology. More than 140 posters were presented on topics ranging from contaminant histories of lakes, the role of groundwater in lake processes, mineral formation in lake sediments, terminal lake evolution, paleoclimate and paleohydrologic processes, volcanic emissions from lakes, as well as the biological and chemical evolution of lake systems. The ages of the lacustrine systems presented ranged from Mesoproterozoic Era saline lake sediments to modern lakes. This special issue, which concentrates on pre-Holocene lakes, is the first of two special issues.

Isotope geochemistry is increasingly an essential part of environmental and climate change research and now routinely contributes to our understanding of many critical environmental problems, which span the whole of Earth system science and not least in palaeolimnology and limnogeology. The International Association of Limnogeology organizes an international conference every four years. The fifth International Limnogeology Congress, ILIC V, was held in Konstanz, Germany, from August 31st – September 3rd, 2011. During this congress we identified several papers where isotope methodologies were used in a particularly novel way, or provided an ‘added value’ data set. Many of these are brought together here in a series of state-of-the-art papers dealing with various aspects of isotopes in lake sediment archives.
Limnogeology: Ancient and modern tales of an evolving Earth

The thirteen papers assembled in this thematic issue of Sedimentary Geology are part of the research presented at ILIC 4. The objectives of this issue were mainly to provide new data and views on lacustrine depositional processes and system evolution in some recent and ancient case studies. The geographic distribution and time range of the contributions are wide, and includes southwestern Europe (with representation from the Mesozoic, Tertiary, Neogene–Quaternary, and Recent records of Spain and Italy), Asia (Miocene and Quaternary from southern China-Tibet), Africa (Quaternary of Kenya), South America (Triassic of Argentina), and Oceania (Miocene of New Zealand). Irrespective of their geographic location, the contributions can be grouped by their varied scope into four major thematic groups: (1) Recent and ancient lacustrine records studied from a sedimentologic perspective, (2) tectonic settings of lacustrine systems, (3) paleoclimatic records in lacustrine deposits, and (2) paleobiologic records and microbial mineral precipitation in lakes.
