This text summarises the state-of-the-art in the study of mineral surfaces and some of the key applications of surface science in mineralogy and mineral chemistry. Each chapter covers a particular aspect of the subject and is written by an expert who raises the key issues involved for those requiring an introduction to the subject, whilst highlighting most recent developments. Advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers alike will find this essential reading as it is the first book to review the fast developing field of mineral surfaces.
