Abstract

Clay mineral analyses were made of several alluvial clay materials from Ceylon. These studies show that the soil materials can be divided into 3 clay mineral provinces on the basis of the frequency distribution of clay and associated minerals. The provinces closely follow the climatic divisions. The characteristic feature of this classification is the progressive development of gibbsite from Dry to Wet Zone areas. Gibbsite has been used as a reliable indicator mineral. ?? 1971.
