Two kinds of zonation thus exist, one with an alumina-rich core and the other with a silica-rich core. Weathering of Volcanic Ash and Other Pyroclastic Materials 2. The interaction of hot water and rocks forms a spatially and temporally regular zonal pattern of new clay minerals, as the fluid with cooling temperature moves through the surrounding rock mass. The spacing of the 06,33 peak indicates that it is of the dioctahedral sub-group. Assuming that this smectite equilibrated with hydrothermal fluid having an oxygen isotope value between that of seawater 0%. Dickite occurs in the kaolin-alunite-quartz zone as lenticular masses or veins sometimes associated with nacrite, diaspore, or alunite Takeshi, 1958 ; Iwa- moto, 1963; Matsunioto, 1968. This high usage and value certainly attests to the importance of clays to the economy and welfare of the United States and to industry.
Both minerals sometimes occur together even within a single exposure Shimizu, 1972a. Hendricks and Teller 1940 first presented a general formulation for the X-ray diffraction intensity of interstratified clay minerals. The interstratifications occur in association with laumontite in the upper horizons, and with prehnite and pumpellyite in the lower ones. Celadonite occurs as an alteration product of glass fragments in rhyolitic tuff at Oya, Tochigi Prefecture. The above technique of natural setting, although not giving a perfect orien- tation, is thus recommended due to its good reproducibility for obtaining a uniform state.
Among the many Toseki deposits, the so-called Amakusa-Toseki, which was discovered in Ama- kusa, Nagasaki Prefecture, towards the end of the 1600s, is the largest in scale and the best in. The occurrence of such iron-rich clays, mostly associated with a large amount of analcime, yields chemical and mineralogical evidence for thermal diagenesis. Weathering of Volcanic Ash and Other Pyroclastic Materials; Chapter 3. . In order to circumvent this problem, a general procedure has been de- veloped which serves to differentiate and identify each clay mineral constituent in complicated clay mineral mixtures without separation. Throughout, an attempt is made to summarize the studies putting them into perspective with the major research trends in the world, and imparting sometimes the classical but still useful knowledge as well as recent one.
Montmorillonite is found as a principal constituent of mud-flows asso- ciated with alkaline water. A B S T R A C T : Kaolinite deposits quarried in the early Tertiary sediments of Charentes consist of clays, lignites, black sands with wood fragments and pyrite, and red-brown sands. However, transportation, deposition, burial, and diagenesis of the weathered materials usually change the physico-chemical properties of clay minerals, and even influence their transformation into other clay minerals. He pointed out that allophane and halloysite 10 A react with slaked lime to give 2Ca0-Al20,. . The analysis is based on the fact that the emission wave length of the A1-Ka line of aluminum is dependent on its coordination.
Aomine and Yoshinaga 1953 obtained values of 2. However, with advances in the study of crystal structures, the presence of crystalline materials in clays and soils was greatly emphasized. The main V-clays are authigenic illite and chlorite of various petrologic habits: clay casts and matrix, pore lining, replacement of detrital grains. Kohyama, Shimoda and Sudo 1 973 performed step-scanning analysis and quantitative analysis of the clay from Oya mentioned above. . In Japan, Otsubo and Kato 1954 synthesized montmorillonite and Zn-montmorillonite using silica, alumina and magnesia gels, and zinc hydroxide as starting materials.
Mention should also be made of the research on the refined crystal structures of certain phyllosilicates such as brittle mica e. Thin section studies In soil micromorphology, it is important to examine the microtexture of soils by observing thin sections under a polarizing microscope. Examples of X-ray powder diagrams of dickite and nacrite are given in Fig. Tokashiki and Wada 1975 observed the accumulation of considerable amounts of humus in certain A1 horizons of ash-derived soils in which allophane and imogolite were absent or nearly absent. Kinter and Diamond 1960 noticed that the glycerol retention of a Japanese Ando soil sample was reduced to about half its original value when heated at 600C, whereas it remained unchanged before and after saturation with triethylammonium ion.
C Relationship be- tween the amount of iron in precipitates resulting from chemical interaction between the hot spring water and sea water at Satsumaiwojima, and the pH value of the sea water associated with the precipi- tate Ossaka, 1975. Of these, the so-called Kuroko lit. The 060 spacing is 1. Since the soil in Japan is usually relatively acidic, the use of calcium superphos- phate fertilizcrs often results in the accumulation of sulfuric acid in the soil. Nacrite and dickite tend to be formed as fillings in veins or interstices, i. Differences in oxidation state between the hanging-wall side and the footwall side support this hypothesis.
Dissolution of aluminum and iron but not of allophane-like constituents was found only for soils containing humus or gibbsite in large amounts but no allophane Mizota and Aomine, 1975a,b; Tokashiki and Wada, 1975. The FeMg-chlorites of Schists and Mg-chlorities of Serpentinites and Certain Metallic Ore Deposits. Recently, the importance of carrying out detailed petrological, geological and stratigraphical work on the Green Tuff, in addition to the mineralogical studies, has been felt. Kajiwara also suggested that the hydrothermal ore-forming solutions responsible for the so-called Kuroko type of mineralization p. . However, for descrip- tive purposes, it is necessary to introduce some of the past and present names commonly used in Japan.
Kamoshita and Yumura 1951 recommended the use of acetic acid for maintaining suspensions of ash-derived soils at pH 5. Hydrothevinal clay minerals Hydrothermal metallic ore deposits are widely distributed in Japan, and hy- drothermal clay minerals are found as gangues in the ores and as alteration products of the wall rocks. . In other words, it should provide basically accurate data which can be utilized for routine work. . Iwao, Kishimoto and Takahashi 1954 first performed mineralogical and geological studies on the wall rock alteration of the deposits in the Kosaka mine.
