<p>The weathering of biotite-plagioclase gneiss was studied in a warm humid climate under good drainage conditions, in De Kalb County, Georgia.</p>
This study is concerned with the dispersion characteristics of montmorillonite, kaolinite, and illite clay minerals in waters of different hardness and the relation of these characteristics to the control of canal seepage by artificial sedimentation. The ...
