To understand clay mineral transformations in hydromorphic conditions in the red earth sediments in Xuancheng, south China, clay mineralogy was investigated using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). The XRD results indicated that clay minerals in the hydromorphic soils were illite, kaolinite, smectite, vermiculite, and mixed-layer illite/smectite and illite/smectite/kaolinite. Changes of the kaolinitic reflections under the various conditions… CONTINUE READING
