    Abstract

    The structure of clay minerals is described from a point of view relevant to the soil engineer. Emphasis is placed upon the composition and variability of composition of the interlayer ion-water component. In particular, variations in interlayer water content with variations in field and laboratory environmental conditions are emphasized. The direct applicability of X-ray diffraction techniques to this approach to clay mineral identification is described and recommended procedures are outlined.
