The Clay Minerals Society Listserver: clayminerals-l

The purpose of the listserver for The Clay Minerals Society is to stimulate research and to disseminate information relating to all aspects of clay science and technology. For more information about The Clay Minerals Society please visit their homepage at:

The Clay Minerals Society began as the Clay Minerals Committee of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council in 1952, in response to the need for a formal way to hold national clay conferences. The primary activities of The Clay Minerals Society consist of publication of the bi-monthly journal Clays and Clay Minerals, organization of the annual meeting, workshop, and field trip, student research and travel grants, publication of a workshop lecture series, slide sets, and special publications, the providing of clays for research purposes through the Source Clays Repository, and publication of the lively newsletter CMS News. Various committees within the Society deal also with such matters as regulatory issues, Eastern European liaison, and nomenclature.

The membership of The Clay Minerals Society is a diverse group because the study of clay touches upon so many fields. Members include clay mineralogists, crystallographers, physicists, chemists, geochemists, soil scientists, agronomists, ceramic scientists, civil engineers, petroleum geologists and engineers, and industrial scientists in fields involving products ranging from catalysts to cat litter. The Society has about 1000 members, a third of whom represent countries outside the United States.
