Topics in Mineral Sciences

In 2017 MAC’s Short Course series became ‘Topics in Mineral Sciences’

Since 1969, MAC has sponsored short courses at its annual meetings. The notes distributed to the registrants are published in a series of short-course volumes. Many of these are still available and have stood the test of time.

This series aims to provide reference books and textbooks in the mineral sciences.
