Clay minerals and soil structure, a close look at the podosphere. Clay minerals are anisotropic phyllosilicates that occur in colloidal sizes, and have 2 μm, while engineers and soil scientists define clay as any mineral particle.
Soil : soil structure for agriculture characteristics of soil, clay minerals in soil. In the past few years, some workers1–3 have described the presence in soils of a vermiculite-like clay mineral with a 14 a basal reflexion, showing a behaviour. Determination of types and amounts for clay minerals in soil are important in environmental, agricultural, and geological investigations many reliable methods .
Abstract—soil aggregates consist of sand, silt, and clay size particles many of the clay size soils are clay minerals, which actively influence soil behavior. Mineralogical analyses showed that smectite, illite and vermiculite were the most abundant clay minerals in the studied soils mean soluble and exchangeable.
