Four districts furnished samples for a study in rock-weathering. Mineralogical data and fourteen new chemical analyses are presented in tables and diagrams. The granite gneiss of Morton, Minnesota, shows a marked loss of soda and lime in early stages of weathering but a more gradual loss of potash and baria. The progress of the decomposition is interpreted from a series of six samples of residual clay. Kaolinite is an end product. New chemical analyses of material from the Medford… 
Clay Mineral Formation In A Deeply Weathered Boulder Conglomerate In North-East Scotland
The clay minerals formed in a deeply weathered boulder conglomerate of Middle Old Red Sandstone (Devonian) age in north-east Scotland have been studied by a variety of physical and chemical
Weathering of a Quartz Diorite at Marble Point, McMurdo Sound, Antarctica
Methods established by Goldich (1938) in his classic study of rock weathering have been applied with some modifications to analysis of a weathered rock series collected in the Antarctic. Exposures of

Mineralogical study of weathering products of granodiorite at Shinshiro City (I): Occurrence and environmental conditions
Abstract Rock weathering has long been a subject of study for geologists, mineralogists, chemists and soil scientists since the dawn of this century. In methods for investigating rock weathering,
WEATHERING OF SOME SCOTTISH BASIC IGNEOUS ROCKS WITH REFERENCE TO SOIL FORMATION
Summary The weathering of several basic igneous rocks of Lower Carboniferous age has been studied by optical microscopy and X-ray techniques. Although similar in mineralogy, the rocks have
Clay mineralogy of modified marginal aggregates
In 2003-04, a joint engineering and geological study was carried out to determine the changes that occur when lime based additives are mixed with roading aggregate, and which of the three additives
