The Clay Minerals Society; passing the gavel
The Clay Minerals Society is an international organization devoted to the study of clays and clay minerals. The Society publishes the journal Clays and Clay Minerals, sponsors of an annual meeting, and offers online access to the archived journals, special publications, the Source Clays Repository, and other network building activities.
