Legal information, conferences on clay minerals, publication of regular reports on the work of AIPEA and much more.
Since 2010, AIPEA has started publishing an educational series of books — http://www.aipea.org/publications.html Interstratified Clay Minerals Origin, Characterization & Geochemical Significance
AIPEA Educational Series — Publication No.1Editors:
Saverio Fiore, Javier Cuadros & F. Javier HuertasLectures held at the
1st AIPEA School for Young Scientists
University of Bari, Italy, June 12-13, 2009
Digilabs Pub., Bari, Italy — pp. 175
The book is an overview and update on the main issues related to interstratified (or mixed-layer) clay minerals, with a clear educational scope. It is accessible to students, providing the basics and the latest information on the several topics and including key literature references.CONTENTS
