GM73: Cave minerals
Bogdan ONAC, Paolo FORTI
Keynote: Paolo FORTI
Brief description of the session:
Recent studies on cave minerals provided invaluable insight into the chemical and physical conditions existing within various cave environments. This symposium focuses on the processes producing cave minerals and their contextual significance in geological studies.

GM74: Boron minerals, geochemistry and isotopes: What do they tell us about geologic processes?
Edward S. GREW, Milan NOVÁK, Pavel UHER
Horst MARSCHALL, Invited: Lee GROAT, Darrell HENRY
Brief description of the session:
The 240 known minerals containing essential boron are found in a wide variety of sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous environments. We invite contributions presenting new developments in studies of boron minerals and their crystal structure, boron geochemistry and boron isotope geochemistry.

GM76C9: Non-phyllosilicate clays
Convenors: Viktória KIS, Helge STANJEK
Brief description of the session:
The session focuses on: physical, chemical, colloidal and structural properties of non-phyllosilicate clay minerals such as (Fe-Mn) oxi-hydroxides, amorphous silica and aluminosilicates (including palygorskite-sepiolite group as well); occurrence in soils, sediments, and extraterrestrial environments; biological and chemical interactions; agricultural and environmental aspects; preparation and analytical techniques.
