Provides a multidisciplinary approach to clay science. This title includes topics ranging from the fundamental structures including textures and properties of clays and clay minerals, through their environmental, health and industrial applications, to their analysis and characterization by modern instrumental techniques.
Comprising a guidebook and a full color CD-ROM, this reference set offers illustrated essentials to study mineralogy, applied to petrology. While there are some excellent reference works available on this subject, this work is unique for its data richness and its visual character. With a collection of images that excels...
There are several books emphasizing the mineralogical and petrological aspects of granites, but this book is the only one emphasizing the experimental aspects.
The Second Edition of this unique pocket field guide has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the advances in physical volcanology, emplacement of magmas and interpreting structures and textures in igneous rocks. New techniques include AMS and geophysical studies of pluton shape at depth.
The first comprehensive guide to the petrography of geomaterials, making the petrographers specialist knowledge available to practitioners, educators and students worldwide interested in modern and historic construction materials.
