This volume is designed to provide the reader with the fundamentals of, as the volume title states, the analysis and interpretation of fluid inclusions. As is the case with most review volumes, and for a variety of reasons, there are some aspects of fluid inclusions that are not covered or covered only briefly. However, we have strived to include most of the fundamental aspects of the analysis of fluid inclusions, including modern analytical methods. Where an approach or technique is not covered in detail, we have tried to direct the reader to key, previously published articles.
