Abstract: Defining soil clay minerals as all inorganic particles < 2 µm would enhance their predictive power for soil functions. The future task is to unravel the prominent functional role of clay associations in the “ultimate particles” in soils-microaggregates. High energy techniques and decomposition of XRD patterns offer the prospect of understanding associations of silicates, oxides and organic matter within microaggregates.
