Reviews

@from:F.B. Van Houten @qu:No geology library or relevant research laboratory should be without a copy. @source:Earth-Science Reviews @from:H. Chamley @qu:Green Marine Clays constitutes both a remarkable handbook and an outstanding research book. It combines the main data and interpretations on green granules which have been provided in the literature over the past twenty years and many new results obtained from accurate mineralogical and genetic research performed during the last few years.... Over the past 20 years G.S. Odin has been the scientist probably the most actively involved in research on green clays, which guarantees the high quality of the approaches in the book.... "Green Marine Clays" is presented in a didactic manner, and is abundantly illustrated. A conclusion section summarizes the main interpretations arising from the numerous multidisciplinary investigations performed by the various contributors. A glossary, an extensive reference list and a geographical index complete the book. Reading "Green Marine Clays" is an exciting and instructive exercise, which can be an intellectual profit not only for specialists in these peculiar facies, but also to geologists involved in early diagenesis, surface geochemistry processes, ion transfers and palaeoenvironments. @source:Marine Geology @from:Australian Mineral Foundation @qu:...a useful compendium of basic information on green marine clays, with environmental comparisons. Amongst other things, it helps to place the glauconitic minerals in perpesective and should be of special interest to clay mineralogists and to those concerned with sedimentation. @source:AMF Informative Book Review Series @from:M. Talbot @qu:The strength of "Green Marine Clays" lies in the wealth of detail it provides on the structure, composition, and physical properties of authigenic iron-bearing phyllosilicates and descriptions of the morphology, occurrence and evolution of "green grains" (also in glossary) in a variety of modern environments.... a standard source of reference on the mneralogy of iron-rich sedimentary phyllosilicates for some time to come. @source:Sedimentology
