  • The first version of this text was written to serve as lecture notes for a first term geology course in “Minerals and Rocks” at Aarhus Universityin Denmarkin 2003. In Aarhus this course is accompanied by a general “Introduction to Geology” course that presents, for example, the structure of the Earth, plate tectonics and paleontology. These topics are therefore not treated here, and some knowledge of the Earth´s structure and plate tectonicsis assumed.

  • The search for oil occurs in geological sediments, as opposed to volcanic rocks. Several processes are involved in the creation of sediments. First, the inland continental volcanic rock is continuously being weakened and eroded by weathering processes (mechanical (through water, ice and wind) and chemical erosion). Secondly and simultaneously, the eroded material is being transported by water, ice and wind and gradually the material may be broken down into smaller pieces (from boulders to gravel, to sand, to silt and finally to clay).

  • Clay and clay minerals represent the youngest minerals in the Earth’s crust. Clays are irregularly distributed in lithosphere, as their concentration increases due to the weathering, hydrothermal changes, including anthropogenic influences. Clay minerals occur in all types of sediments and sedimentary rocks and are common in hydrothermal deposits. The interdisciplinary character of clay science follows from the information obtained from the methodology and theory of other natural and technical sciences....

  • Images are central to the task of exploring for and producing oil and gas (hydrocarbons) from the Earth’s subsurface. To understand their utility, one must look at both how hydrocarbons are formed and how we explore for them. Oil and gas (hydrocarbons) are generally found in the pores of sedimentary rocks, such as sandstone or limestone. These rocks are formed by the burial of sediment over millions of years and its subsequent chemical alteration (diagenesis).

  • Nature Coal is a dark brown to black sedimentary rock derived primarily from the unoxidized remains of carbon-bearing plant tissues. It is a complex, combustible mixture of organic, chemical, and mineral materials found in strata, or "seams," in the earth, consisting of a wide variety of physical and chemical properties.

  • Groundwater is an important resource that serves as a backbone of human development. In several regions, mostly in developing countries, groundwater from sedimentary and hard rock aquifers used for drinking is naturally contaminated with arsenic. In different countries in Asia such as India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Nepal, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, the situation of arsenic toxicity is alarming and severe health problems are reported amongst the inhabitants relying on groundwater as sources of water for drinking purposes....

  • Although phosphate rock and potash are used as raw materials for a wide range of applications, the most important use by far is the manufacture of mineral fertilizers. The primary source of these minerals is geological ore deposits formed through past sedimentary or igneous activities. In the case of potash, concentrated brines are also a significant source. This chapter provides a brief overview of the major activities involved in the mining, handling and benefi- ciation of phosphate rock and potash ore....
