About this book


Origin and Mineralogy of Clays, the first of two volumes, lays the groundwork for a thorough study of clays in the environment. Volume 2 will deal with Environmental Interaction. Going from soils to sediments to diagenesis and hydrothermal alteration, the book covers the whole spectrum of clays. The chapters on surface environments are of great relevance in regard to environmental problems in soils, rivers and lake-ocean situations, showing the greatest interaction between living species and the chemicals in their habitat. The book is of interest to scientists and students working on environmental issues.
