Applied Mineralogy: Applications in Industry and Environment

Swapna Mukherjee (Author)

This book covers the entire spectrum of mineralogy and consolidates its applications in various fields. It starts (Part I) with the very basic concept of mineralogy describing in detail the implications of various aspects of mineral chemistry, crystallographic structures and their effects producing different mineral properties.

Part II of the book describes different aspects of mineralogy used to extend the studies of Geothermobarometry, mineral thermodynamics and phase diagrams, mineral exploration and analysis, some aspects of marine minerals etc.

The book finally (Part III) handles the applications in industrial, medicinal and environmental mineralogy along with precious and semiprecious stone studies. The various analytical techniques, their significance in handling specific type of mineralogical problems are also well accounted to complete the document.

About the author

Swapna Mukherjee

The author started her mineralogist career in Geological Survey of India and continued for more than 30 years to handle various mineralogical problems related to both academic and applied aspects. With International Atomic Energy Agency sponsored post-doctoral study a deep understanding was developed of various analytical techniques their implications and use of the data in particular their specific uses in mineralogical/geological studies. This experience and expertise was used during the investigations/supervisions done in GSI. Her research career has been extended to various fields like analytical techniques, marine geology, bauxite, cement etc. across the globe which has been reported at different symposiums and published in various journals. The over-view of mineralogy a multidisciplinary subject and its specific applications to assimilate and incorporate the recent views in various fields of mineralogy have been elaborated during her teaching experience at different universities across the country. This book is a comprehensive presentation of her vast experience and expertise in different aspects of the mineralogical field.
