The Heterogeneous Distribution of Anions and Water Around a Clay Surface with Special Reference to Estuarine Systems
This paper presents new information on the distribution of anions and water around clays in the estuarine environment. This information is not already available for two main reasons. Firstly, previous studies of this kind were confined to systems containing homoionic clays and simple electrolytes, and the information thereby obtained is consequently of limited application to the natural environment. Secondly, other more general clay/electrolyte studies, which might have been expected to be able to supply the required information, cannot because they failed to consider the possibility of a non-uniform distribution of species in solution.
