Michael R. Rosen is the co-founding series editor for the Syntheses in Limnogeology series.  He is currently Research Hydrologist at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).  He has also served as a Water Quality Specialist for the Western United States for the USGS.  He has been conducting research on water quality, sediment contaminant histories, and paleohydrology at the USGS since 2001. Before this, he was the Groundwater Quality Programme Leader at the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (now known as GNS Science), New Zealand, a research scientist at CSIRO, Australia, the Limnological Research Center, University of Minnesota, and Curtin University of Technology, Western Australia. He has published more than 200 journal articles and reports on topics ranging from limnogeology and limnology of lakes, groundwater and lake pollution, geothermal water chemical evolution and sinter formation, and tufa formation. He has also edited four books on groundwater in New Zealand, limnogeology of playas, the ecosystem and limnology of Lake Mead, and history of contaminants in lake sediments. He has been an associate editor for the journals Ground Water and Sedimentology and currently is the editor of the Journal of the Nevada Water Resources Association and serves as an ex-officio member of the Board of Directors. He was elected as a fellow of the Geological Society of America in 2010, and has been a Board member and chair of the Limnogeology Division of the Geological Society of America, as well as board member and chair of the International Association of Limnogeology.

Blas L. Valero-Garcés is co-series editor of the Limnogeology Series. He is a Researcher at the Pyrenean Institute of Ecology (Spanish National Research Council, CSIC) and an Associate Researcher at the Limnological Research Center (University of Minnesota, USA) and International Global Change Laboratory (LINCG, Spain, Chile and Brazil). He received a PhD in Geology from the University of Zaragoza (Spain) and has previously worked at the University of Minnesota (USA). He has been an active member of the International Association of Limnogeology since the 1980s and currently he is a member of the Board as Treasurer. He has served in the Science Advisory Group and the Executive Committees of the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) and in the Science Steering Committee of Past Global Changes (PAGES). His research focuseson the reconstruction of past global changes (climate, environmental, human-induced) from lake archives at decadal to millennial scale using sedimentological and geochemical proxies. During his career, Dr, Valero-Garcés has worked in projects in the Americas, the southern Pacific and Western Europe.
