About this book

Review papers covering subjects such as characterisation of mudrocs and clays, diagenesis and weathering, and applications in civil and petroleum engineering.

The volume is sturdily bound and beautifully presented with excellent reproductions of figures and photographic plates - Clay Minerals; The original meeting was successful and the publication can be judged an equal success. Both contributors and authors are to be congratulated on this addition to the Mineralogical Society's special series -Mineralogical Magazine; The authors deserve special praise for providing an invaluable source of information along with an exhaustive list of references... The monography will definitely be a great asset for the students and professionals in the fields of geochemistry, clay minerology, petroleum geology, petroleum engineering, soil science, environmental and civil engineering - Applied Clay Science; The origional meeting was successful and the publication can be judged an equal success. Both contributors and authors are to be congratulated on this addition to the Mineralogical Society's special series. - Mineralogical Magazine


The geochemistry of clay-pore fluid interactions. Part One: Experimental and theoretical characterization of mudrocks and clays. Characterization of porous solids and particle aggregates by small angle scattering techniques. Monte Carlo simulations of Mg- and Na- smectites. Molecular dynamics simulation of water mobility in smectites. Part Two: Natural processes of diagenesis and weathering. The composition of authigenic clay minerals in recent sediment: links to the supply of unstable reactants. Diagenesis in Jurassic mudrocks of the North Sea. Diagenetic pore fluid evolution in the Kimmeridge Clay formation: from concretions to sandstone cements. Part Three: Experimental studies of diagenesis and weathering. The stability of experimentally grown clay minerals: implications for modelling the stability of neoformed diagenetic clay minerals. Laboratory reproduction of morphological variation in petroleum reservoir clays: monitoring of fluid composition during illite precipitation. Experimental diagenesis of mudrocks. Weathering kinetics of montmorillonite: investigations in batch and mixed flow reactors. Part Four: Applications in civil and petroleum engineering. Mechanisms of overpressuring: an overview. Clays as chemical and hydraulic barriers in waste disposal: evidence from porewaters. Mass transfer mechanisms in compacted clays. Monitoring the evolution of the clay environment beneath a concrete vault at the Drigg low level waste disposal site. New apparatus for pore fluid extraction from mudrocks for geochemical analysis. Chemical composition of pore waters in the Italian Plio-Pleistocene clay formations. Porewater-groundwater relationships in Jurassic shales and limestones of Northern Switzerland.
