Minerals in Contaminated Environments: Characterization, Stability, Impact

Volume 47, Part 3, 2009
Editors : K. Hudson-Edwards, K. Savage, H. Jamieson, K. Taylor, R. F. Martin

This thematic issue presents new discoveries in environmental mineralogy.

The first six papers examine the character and impacts of minerals in contaminated natural environments, especially those affected by the mining, extraction and processing of metals and coal.

The remaining seven papers describe the structures, chemistries, stabilities and mechanisms of contaminant incorporation for natural, synthetic and computer-generated minerals and analogues.
