|Title:||Structural and determinative mineralogy with emphasis on layer silicates / Richard Anthony Eggleton.|
|School/Discipline:||Dept. of Geology and Geophysics|
|Abstract:||This thesis investigates the nature and origins of minerals of a group known as layer (sheet) silicates or phyllosilicates. It consists of a collection of research papers grouped into 3 categories: modulated layer silicates, clay silicates and the weathering of rocks and minerals, including the formation of clay minerals. Central to the research has been the use of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). All three research categories were carried out simultaneously.|
